    Could you guys post your videos with the GoPro Hero3? I'm very interested in buying one and I want to see the "real" deal and not those for commercial purposes. Thank you.

    Took this a year ago, with my GoPro Hero 3 Black—proof that I successfully learned kitesurfing basics. :)

    Only the section from 0:40 to 1:11 were shot with the GoPro. No color correction was done, although it could've used one. GoPro seems to be a tad yellowish/greenish.

    And it's not the most accurate representation either because most of what's visible in my GoPro section are distant. It would be best to review videos of GoPro up close too, say skiing, mountain biking, board-mounted surfing shots, etc.

    Here's a short underwater video i took on Feb 13, 2014 at a dive site called El Morro in Puerto Vallarta Mexico. Visibility was not good and water was greenish. This is the first time for me to take my GoPro diving. Will buy u/w filters for my next trip.

    I just thought I had to reply to the thread cause of the name of the product.

    Kidding aside, i've shot with a GoPro and the product demonstrates how being good at a very niche thing can make a world of difference.

    I wonder if Amazon still has the sale on hero3+ gopros. Last time I checked they're discounted up to $80.

    Better check 'em out guys!

    That's one huge discount considering that the Hero3+ Silver is regularly priced at $299.99.

    ROX in BGC and Glorious Ride Bike Shop sells Go Pro as well as accessories. Though selection of accessories I think Glorious has lots of it. You can check their Facebook

    Yup. Stocks are limited though. Got one for my brother from Digital Walker MOA last night. Only one unit came after two weeks of waiting. Went there asap after work.
