Really nice tip. One of those "obvious when you know" ones. I'll mod both mine this way.

Just saw the CamOne Infinity. Looks like a fairly shameless Go Pro clone, even down to the mounting system. Anyone who has had both compared the two? The low price (I can get one for 179), coupled with built in screen make it look tempting, but I'm a bit dubious as to if it would be "drop a GS on it" tough.

A time lapse video of photos taken in my back yard this morning... the skies from Hurricane Sandy.

The new accessory I'll be getting with the hero 3 is the tethers.

Here's some roost cam video from whitewash sand dunes near moab.
I was using one of the small round polarizing filters, check it out in FS HD 1080P.

Great video. I love riding in the sand.

I've been using a piece of para cord as a tether for a long time. You can see it in some of my videos flapping around before I shortened it.

Bit disappointed to see the new "2X as powerful" Go Pro 3 only has 120FPS as the highest speed low res framerate (the old one had 100FPS). I had hoped this iteration would have a 200FPS, or at least 150FPS low res mode for some superbly smooth slow 'mo. I know that 400fps in something this small is another 5 years away, but damn, the really smooth slow mo from videos like this is what I want:

NB: The above is not shot from a Go Pro.

Slow motion

I could be wrong but I thought some software will create slow motion from raw footage even if it was not shot at a high frame rate.

But I do agree, it would be nice to have faster frame rates with the GoPro. Of course the cost of the camera would probably go way up.

Speaking of cost, I notice the cost went up $100.00 over the HD Hero cost and they are not including any of the cables I got with my HD Hero. Did the lack of cables start with the HD-3 or did the HD-2 also not come with the video cables?

You can make slow mo go even slower with software (see Ridefreak's roosting one), but it's not as good as one shot at 200fps.

Yes, big cost spike. I wonder how popular the bundled Remote will be as many people will just run the smartphone app soon. I hope the 2nd hand price of remotes plummets as a result.

IIRC, my HD Hero 2 came with just a USB charge lead; I had to buy the mini HDMI myself.

The remote and phone app work nicely together - you use the app to line up the camera view and quickly make camera adjustments, then as a final step relinquish control to the remote sitting on your dash or whatever. The remote is waterproof - phones usually aren't.

So I wouldn't expect a bunch of remotes going unused.

That was shot at 60FPS, I'm looking forward to some better slomo.

As the highest res my youtube channel supports is 720p, I usually film WVGA 100FPS and the loss in quality isn't too much (unless you compare it to playing back 1080P on a big TV. Slow mo from that is quite good. Nice for rearward facing roost shots like in your video.

Wow.....well that looks pretty good for 60fps. What software did you use to slow it down?

Here you go:

http://www.red.com/products/epic

2k resolution at 300 fps, 3k @ 200 fps, 4k @ 150 fps or 5k @ 120 fps.

That cost thing comes into play though...

Look at the file sizes of the attachments you're trying to send. You're probably going to find that sending the originals won't work but if you trim the files and convert them to smaller files you'll be more successful.

Not sure what else to say but..........WOW!

The body alone is $19k and a really nice package is $47k

So when you get one let us know how you like it

Nice video on that page by the way
