needs better battery life We have the hero 3. I mount it onmy mirror of our 2010 Goldwing. Drove across Nebraska t 75 and no problem. We hit a mule deer in Colorado at 35 mph. The Gopro hero 3 took the crash like a champ. I got busted up bad. Sorry Gopro didn't have it on when we hit the mule deer. Thanks Jim ( aka The Condor) Wisconsin December 11, 2013
Great camera, not sure about the price After much research, I went with the gopro silver. It's a great little camera. The only 2 things that suck is the price (it's good but I don't know about $250 good). And the battery is awful. I expected a low battery life out of it, at least 2 hours on a full charge. I ended up only getting two 20 min track sessions out of it (and that was turning it on pulling away from the pits and turning it off pulling in). And yes, I charged it overnight the night before. Still figuring out all the video adjustments on it.. I'm not the most video tech savvy person around so it's taking some learning and playing around to get use to. But so far I'm happy with it. I like the variety of mounts that you can get for it. Been able to get some good shots. October 14, 2013
Everything you want in an action cam I purchased the gopro hero 3 silver to mount to my helmet so that I can document my trips to share on YouTube and also to record videos of upgrades and reviews of the upgrades that I've made to my bike. It works great! I'm learning more about it every day and ordering through revzilla was flawless. September 23, 2013
Get one This is an awesome camera, really light and small. I attached it on top of my helmet. The quality and sound is excellent. I tried it at speed more than 70mph, under the rain and even in the lake. I also recorded a live band playing - awesome hd. And for the teamzilla, thanks for fast shipping and zilla cash.. .

Cool camera but overpriced Decent camera but I truly think it's priced way to High for what it is, revzilla was top notch as always in order process and shipment. Camera does what it's supposed to do , I kept it for a week then sold it. Guess i was expecting more but probably just hyped it up to myself to justify the purchase price. I'd buy again for around the 80 or 100 price range but not for 300 + Battery life is laughable April 29, 2013
Good product Hello, I am very satisfied with the purchase of this product is very good and fun. thanks April 22, 2013
Great Camera for motorcycle touring I had previously owned the Hero 2 with WiFi backpack and remote but liked the size and weight of the new Hero 3. Bulk and weight wise this is an easier camera to wear on you helmet. On-board WiFi works great using the remote or a smartphone. March 11, 2013
Wow One word, "Awesome" Only drawback, I can't listen to music and use my iPhone to control the camera. Music will not continue in the background. March 11, 2013

A shopper asked: I have a new GoPro2 that has never even been outside but once much less used on my new bike yet. I think hearing about the 3 blk is the first I've been bummed about new tech.
I know the pics don't go with the question. I just wanted to share with you guys.

RevZilla: The GoPro mounts will work with all generations of GoPro Camera housings. However, the Camera Housings are specific to each generation of Camera. For example, you can use any existing mount (such as the suction cup from the Motorsports edition) with any GoPro. But the case for each camera will not work with a newer or older model camera (IE the case for a Hero 3 will not accept a Hero 2 camera).

PS: Awesome Fireblade!

A shopper asked: What's the difference between the silver (now available) and the black version (coming in spring 2013)...other than the $100 price difference? Dec 9, 2012

RevZilla: The GoPro cameras are all awesome units that come with the ability to record any action that you might want to cover. The main difference between the Black Edition and the Silver edition is that the Black Edition includes the Wi-Fi Remote, works better in low light, and has a higher resolution for videos (1080p at 60 frames per second vs 1080p at 30 frames per second) and photos (12mega-pixels vs 11mega-pixels). Otherwise, both units will include one flat mount and one curved mount, a three way pivot arm, and a quick release mount.
