  2. To maximize HERO3 battery life when shooting longer duration activities, it is best to use camera without LCD Touch BacPac attached and make sure Wi-Fi is turned OFF.
  3. Using protune mode will increase power consumption. May vary per mode and camera edition.

Before the HD Hero3 I've already owned the original Hero camera, the HD Hero 2 camera, and now the third generation HD Hero3 in Silver Edition. I've used mine for almost a year now, here's my updated review.

Smaller Camera
Compared to the Hero2, the Hero3 is about half the thickness of the Hero2, but more importantly the Hero3 is noticeably lighter, both in hand and when mounted to things like helmets or handlebars. The reduced body thickness also makes the camera easier to position and get to the perfect angle - especially when using the Chesty harness mount or the handlebar mount.

New Case
The new sealed splash-proof case is obviously thinner like the camera, but features the same spring-loaded buttons just like the Hero2 has. If you have a large selection of Hero2 mounts and accessories, they will still work with the Hero3, including the LCD BacPac (though the newer version is in black to match the Hero3 color scheme), the Battery BacPac (newer version gets the same color treatment) and the redundant WiFi BacPac (which you won't need since WiFi is built into the Hero3). The new lens cover is rectangular, and the replaceable lens piece is now recessed behind the frame - much better than the bubble-eye Hero2 lens piece that was easily prone to getting scuffed or scratched because it stuck out. One little "improvement" that is actually a little annoying is the new 2-step release clamp at the top. Whereas with the Hero2 case you had to tug at a tight-fitting latch, on the Hero3 case you have to slide a small tab with one hand, then you can lift the latch open with the other hand.

Amazon took down my first review of the Hero3 Silver. I don't know why. I got one (not ordered through Amazon) for my birthday back in November 2012 and it didn't work. I took it back to big box retailer and got a replacement. It also didn't work. Then I got a third one. For the third time, it didn't work. I bought two San Disk cards, a 16GB and a 64GB, both are the models recommended by gopro, and updated the firmware on all three of the cameras to the most recent (it was the 12/15/2012 FW, which was still the most recent available in February 2013). Everytime, after 20-40 videos, the memory card would get corrupted, the camera would lock up, and I'd lose all my stored videos. At that point the camera would start corrupting the memory card almost immediately every time, even after I reformtted it in the camera. Because the issue takes so many videos to occur, even though I use them a lot (surfing, in my truck and on my motorcycle), it took me 3 months to burn through the three cameras. And because it took so long, the big box retailer where I bought it would only give me store credit in the end.

I think that gopro has been proactively trying to bury these problems (and that is why my first review was taken down and the average review is now 3 stars instead of 2 1/2 like it was when I wrote it the first time). I will keep an eye on this one and see if they take it down as well. I'm an Amazon Prime member and and software engineer. I have written probably two dozen product reviews on Amazon and too my knowledge, only the gopro one has been removed. This gopro camera has serious problems, I believe it is do to a hardware issue with the memory card controller and that it cannot be fixed with firmware updates. At least not any of the updates available to me in February 2013.

Style Name: Silver EditionPackage Type: Standard Packaging
I read a ton of reviews on both the Silver and Black edition before buying this camera. At the moment, the majority of reviews for the Black are pretty negative so I decided to go with the silver. I've had this camera for about 4 days have have shot a lot of test footage and am pretty happy with it so far.

When you open the box there's a card telling you to update the camera. The process took less than 10 minutes. The online instructions could have been a little more detailed, but it worked fine the first time. Some people complained that it didn't come with an instruction book. I don't see why this is an issue. Take the 30 seconds to download it from their site, save some trees, and have a searchable PDF!

I downloaded the GoPro app for my iOS devices. The app works great. Yes there is a 3 or so second lag when using the app to view, but I believe the whole point is to be able to frame your shot, so it really doesn't matter. The camera settings are a lot easier to get to with the app as opposed to pushing the buttons on the camera. Later on I also got the app for Andriod, and it works just the same.

While I read a lot of reviews saying the camera needs a class 10 micro SD card or higher, the camera works fine with a class 4. There are some settings, like time lapse at 0.5 sec, that will only work with 10 or above, but everything else I've tried works fine.

I also read that a lot of people were having freezing issues. I messed with different resolutions, frame rates, and time lapse with no problems. I did experience the camera cutting a hour long shot into smaller 20 min sections. All the footage was there, it was just split into multiple files. This might be because of my sd card class, or maybe that's just how the camera deals with longer video.
