$219 + tax, free shipping. I posted the deal here at the time. I sold my second kit for exactly what I paid, $248. I already had a Hero 2 and WiFi kit I bought in the Fall.

Anyone know how trustworthy the bar mount is? If I tighten it enough so it won't move on the handlebars, it looks like it might break. I was considering a ram mount. I may still go that route.

A RAM base with the GoPro tripod mount is much better. Makes it much easier to line up the camera and the RAM balls seem to dampen the vibrations a little as well. My wife uses the bar clamp, but it does look flimsy and breakable, as you say.





There is a larger "Roll Bar Clamp" available but it's getting a little bulky for handlebar use.



I use RAM balls on the handlebars, and this when I want to place the camera in other locations:

Thanks, Emm. I just placed the order for the tripod mount and a ram ball. Already had a ram mount for the bars and a 3" arm.

Got a GoPro Hero 2 for the holidays, been playing with it as a dash cam. I ordered a skeleton housing in order to power the camera instead of using the battery, and just received a free shipping code from GoPro.

Passing it along, hopefully someone can use it.

Hero3 Black Edition

Bought myself a Hero3 Black Edition as a belated Christmas gift to myself... if anyone is curious about the nighttime performance, it's pretty impressive - I recorded part of my commute in the morning and evening... but judge it for yourself:

Videos are raw footage without any colour correction/filters and composited in Final Cut Pro...
4:38—idiot driver in Audi comes within a whisker of knocking mirrors with an oncoming car...

A second video using the GoPro Chesty mount - I like the POV (compared to nausea-inducing head swivels in city traffic when using the helmet mount) but it's annoying that the GPS mount blocks the instruments... again, no colour correction, but I hit almost every red light along the way so I've edited out the waits.

I see the Remote Accessories Kit is now available, including the handlebar mount for the remote control:



Unfortunately it does look like you don't have the ability to charge the remote while it's in the holder.

WOW......the night video looks just as I imagine it would look in real life. Is that how it looked to you in person or is the video lighter or darker than real life?

Either way I think it looks great!

What resolution settings were you using?

I would say the camera has brightened everything up about 10% - the corridor from the top of the car park to the main road is really dark in person, as is the bridge and the side road just after the bridge... at 100% there is some grain/iso noise but it is remarkably restrained for what is an inexpensive camera in the grand scheme of things...

One thing that is impressive with the black edition's internal filtering/processing is that it retains the colour of bright objects such as car tail lamps and traffic lights... most cameras seem to blow them out to white with a coloured halo...

The daylight video was 1440p48 and nighttime 1080p25 - not optimal for compositing which is why the daylight video judders a bit... but it was just a play-around to see what it could do. With a little forethought I would have done them at the same rate or multiples of each other...
