Which brand of card? They are not all equal, in my experience.

So which one to use then? I've never had problems with generic brand SD cards...

I had exactly the same problem with a Class 4 card. And lots of generic eBay cards are Class 4 labelled as Class 10.

I have good results with Kingston.

Wonder if there's a way to determine the class...

It's easier to just buy known good brands. It's so cheap nowadays.

In my experience, Sandisk, Kingston and Transcend (in that order) make the best cards - but as I'm sure you know, beware when you're buying off ebay, you could be getting a knock-off that looks like the real thing.

If the card isn't keeping up with the camera, once the buffer is full it will stop... and SD cards eventually wear out, becoming unpredictable - they only have about 1000 write/rewrite cycles (and an onboard chip to load balance the cycles) - I've come across this twice in 8 years snapping 100-200 photos a week for work).

There are some fairly simple program's that read and write the card (if fact any card, USB drive, hard drive etc) and measures the speed for different file sizes etc.
Google something like "card speed test software", and you will find lots.

The class of the card Is the MINIMUM sustained speed. Class 10 is a minimum of 10MB/sec. Higher speeds are possible for bursts (such as digital SLRs), but for video you need continuous high speed.

I broke the housing clamp today. The black one that joins the housing and backplate together :-) Anyone know where I can buy a replacement?

How handy are you? I made a new one from a piece tig welding wire after mine broke. Some guy wanted $20 for the same thing on ebay when I was looking.

I'm starting to wonder if there is something wrong with my GP3 Black. All the video I have shot so far seems like very poor quality. Here is a link to a friend's band that I filmed on Saturday. I shot it at 1080p 30fps, with ProTune off. The room was a restaurant dining room and was decently lit. Not bright, but not dim like a bar. And this video seems incredibly grainy and low-res. And this is pulled straight from the camera and uploaded. No processing. And watching the original MP4 on my computer looks basically the same, so it's not that YouTube is hosing it up.

http://youtu.be/6Xjdq-PIGYg

This is another one, at a kid's birthday party. Also shot at 1080p, but 60fps, with ProTune off. Again, in a decently-lit room.

http://youtu.be/93_5OAdz4Ck

This one, I did "process" it with Cineform Studio, but that just seemed to change the color. The video quality is no better or worse than the original MP4, straight from the camera.

Something about this just does not seem right. Based on these videos, I don't see how I could ever get the kind of video quality I've seen other people posting, even ones using a GP2.

Help?

I'm blessed with 10 thumbs so this is beyond my capabilities I'll be happy to pay $20 for one instead of a new housing. What term did you use when searching ebay?

There's a good chance it's the battery, I've been going back and forth with GP over some H3 issues, one was the batteries, it's stop filming about 10sec after finishing a file (where the cam automatically saves a file and starts another). Second issue was it'd stop filming at random times, sometimes getting 10 min of video often less. It's sent back to GP at the moment for repair/replacment.

Stuart, give it a shot outdoors and see if it's better, low light is improved but they really weren't designed to be indoor cameras.
