GoPro Hero3 Silver Edition Review

 

The GoPro Hero 3's video quality is simply the best among the helmet cameras we tested, and we appreciate its compact design and waterproof case. However, the helmet mount is awkward. More than once, it hit the crossbar on the ski lift. Also, the...

Small and compact, Excellent video quality, Sturdy and waterproof case, More affordable than competing cameras

Should have red it carefully

 

Good camera. Wish it had more FPS options, and I wish it balanced light better, but I like it.

Great camera. Versatile, lots of accessories. I love the Wasabi power batteries, had some leftover from my last hero (got stolen)

Excellent quality from GoPro

 

he skeleton mount offers so much flexibility when you don't need the waterproof features. The openings allow me to connect an external mic and allows the batterybac to remain cool during 90 minutes of video recording.
