GoPro HD Hero3 Black Edition Camera

The Wi-Fi enabled HERO3: Black Edition is the most advanced GoPro, ever. No expense was spared during its development, resulting in a GoPro that is 30% smaller, 25% lighter and 2x more powerful than previous models. Wearable and gear mountable, waterproof to 197' (60m), capable of capturing ultra-wide 1440p 48fps, 1080p 60 fps and 720p 120 fps video and 12MP photos at a rate of 30 photos per second, the HERO3: Black Edition is the world's most versatile camera. Built-in Wi-Fi, GoPro App compatibility and the included Wi-Fi Remote make the HERO3: Black Edition all the more versatile, still.

RevZilla Store asked: Why did you choose this?
Andrew B: Bought this to make timelapses driving as well as motovlogs while riding. And of course, any other video which needs a small portable & mountable camera. It's a pretty awesome camera! Dec 17, 2013
jude g: I love the discounted price plus free shipping!!! Its a win win! :) Sep 14, 2013
Wilson L: Looks like the best all-purpose outdoor action camera, once you get the latest firmware update and use a Class10 or faster microSD card. Many, many mounting options from GoPro and other vendors. We'll see once it arrives. Note: I always use Delkin Devices memory cards in all of my cameras - never have had one fail. Buy the best cards and have no worries (Lexar or Sandisk will do in a crunch). Sep 13, 2013

A shopper asked: What are the range of angles the video can shoot? I move at supersonic speed and would prefer a video angle to be at most 53 degrees.

Thank You And Good Day

I hope Brian Connor has to answer this.

RevZilla: The GoPro HD Hero3 Black Edition Camera's Fields of View in degrees are as followed:

Ultra Wide - 150 degrees
Medium - 127 degrees
Narrow - 90 degrees

Not exactly optimal for supersonic speeds, but you'll be moving so fast that time and space should be able to adjust itself around you.
