Go pro hero 3 question
#1
Thinking of getting a camera, which is recommended by people who use them already?

Is the 3 much better and worth the extra over the 2?  Also what package if it is the 3 to go for, silver or black?  Do you get enough useful mounts with it or do you have to then look at getting others?

Any advice appreciated.

I have just changed up to the gopro 3 black edition as it is smaller and lighter than the gopro2 and the 3 also has built in wifi and comes with a remote. i would advice to get a vented helmet mount and chest mount.

also the 3 black edition has a better frame rate and better photo functions.

If you turn of wifi once set up on your head its fine (but if left on its rubbish)  and no freezing as yet. Any issues will be fixed in a firmware update and also they plan to increase the frame rate of the 4k via firmware also.

I see it does continuos 8mp shots whilst 720p60 that's quite good. Is the mike any better? Can you adjust the fov for each mode to avoid fisheye curving?

Yeah with the new lense you don't get the fish eye but you can still change each mode. Mic is good but still not tested it that much due to shoulder.
