    Go pro 3,2, black, silver, white edition???

    There are too many options here and I'm reading bad reports from the newest GP black 3....

    I want to buy one but would like some real world experience on the different models before I pull the trigger.

    Anyone??

    Get GoPro 3 Black if you have got money.
    Get GoPro 3 Silver if you need small and light camera, but you don't have enough money for Black.
    Get GoPro 2 if you don't care about the size and weight too much and you want to save money for some accessories.

    I went from a Hero HD (1) to a Hero 3 Black... No issues with the latest firmware. Video quality is amazing!

    I have a pretty much new Hero 3 Silver for sale if you're interested. I used it up on a trip to Copper Habor in late June, and am deciding to get rid of it. I have SD cards, chest strap, few extra batteries ect. PM me if you're interested.

    GoPro Hero 3 Black is on sale for $329 right now on most online retailers. I just had Pricepoint.com price math theirs for me but I think the extra $30 is well worth the additional features you get with the black model. You get 1080 p AND 60 frames per second and a handy dandy remote you can mount on your bike or clothing so you don't constantly have to take it off. Other features too.

    My bro had some very annoying problems with the new gopro black. It would just turn itself off, and also just wipe everything off the memory card!
    It seemed to go bad for no reason then be fine the next time it was used. Very unreliable.

    I would check the latest firmware update. No issues as of yet with my Black model.
