GoPro Hero 3

I'm kinda glad that something I own has been "outdated" and that I feel no desire to update. I've got the Hero2. Hero three adds 4K & 2.7K video and a WiFi remote allowing control of up to 50 cameras. Nawww, no thanks. It does boast improved low light functionality though, that would be nice.

Not feeling a $400 dollar need to upgrade.

I agree. The 2 functions just fine for me, and with the backpack battery and a 32gb chip, I can take more pics than I can count.

I still have the Hero "1" and don't feel the need to upgrade. The 4K video is only 15fps. And I couldn't even display it natively anyway. The 1080P 60fps is tempting, but not for $400.

I have the Hero and Hero2. The Hero2 is so much better than the Hero in low light. I use mine on my race cars and we race at night. The video from the 2 is a lot better. Also do scuba diving and the pictures look so much better on the 2. I will wait awhile before I try the 3, but the GoPro2 works pretty good. GoPro makes really good products so I won't mind spending the money.

I'm happy with my Hero2, although I wouldn't mind a wireless remote control....
