    GoPro Users....

    Which one to buy? I've had my eyes on a 3+ Black but with the 4 out should I just go for it?

    I see so many uses for one I can't start to describe it all here but it would essentially replace the point and shoot camera as I have seen some amazing still come out of the videos the GoPro produces. It will be used on vacation, around the house, on the tractor, etc.

    Thoughts?

    You will also need the battery backpack thing... the camera only has two minutes by itself.

    I've read 2 hours on the 3+.....two minutes would make the camera useless.

    My friend has one and I thought it lasted around two hours. He mounted on his sons hockey helmet during a mite game. The video was great and the sound effects added to it. What a great way to show kids about hockey from a kids point of view. I could see tons of uses. Atv, boat, tractor, etc..

    Unless you need the GoPro type accessories for mounting, there are many great compact and DSLR cameras that do beautiful video. Then of course you would be limited to hand held or tripod shooting (which is what I do). Not enough action for me to have a camera strapped to my head.......

    I used a compact camera in my truck for videos using a $20 suction mount that worked great. Going to rig something up to attach it to my tractor ROPS soon also.

    I rigged up my GoPro on my dog using a chest mount (too cheap to buy the dog mount). It worked well but all one could see was my butt, because all he does is follow me around. I'll use it when I get outside working with the tractor, which should be around July fourth.

    The Black edition is what my friends have. They love theirs. With Wi-Fi built in they use an iPad to see the video remotely. Wi-Fi will drain battery fast though.

    I've got a GP3 Black, battery last 2+ hours for video. Works with both my iPhone/iPad, also have a GP3+ which I haven't even gotten around to using yet, several small improvement over the 3.

    A Go Pro is great for a lot of things but not as a point and shoot. They have no zoom and also a bit of a wide angle lenses. I have a Hero and Hero 2. The 4 Black when using the 4k video setting will drain the battery in 20 minutes I think. Gets hit too, but that's a lot of computing in a small case. Works much better in 1080p mode. Mine don't do well in low light. But I understand the newer ones fixed that. I love mine, but don't use them much. Bought a plane I want to try my Go Pro in. Click image for larger version.

ID:	42444 The Hero 4 Black has no screen so you have to use a second device to setup your shots. The Hero 4 Silver has an LCD I believe. Let us know what you come up with.
