Re: GoPro HD3 October ???

I cut my teeth on double system sound. So to "return to those thrilling days of yesteryear" (1960s and 70s for me) makes no sense.
The whole point of POV cameras is to be self-contained. Why force people who want ultra-portable gear to also have to carry and operate and maintain a recorder and then spend time and energy later syncing up? It's the entire camera manufacturing culture these days who say, "Why have good audio when you can "cover it up" with music? Or lug around more equipment?"
Frankly, I'm hard pressed to think of a GoPro video I've seen that isn't mostly a music video.
Implementing better audio isn't asking much. Just give us clean circuits. We can then worry about better mics.
Obviously I'm in a minority here.

Re: GoPro HD3 October ???

I think many people will be grateful for that small addition, altho' it remains to be seen what they mean by "improved." Less AGC? Cleaner sound? Better in-camera mic? We'll know soon enough, I guess.

Re: GoPro HD3 October ???

I would like a real-time monitor that would allow me to see what the camera sees at the end of a stick.

Preferably the connection would be waterproof enough to be submerged. Looking forward to seeing more about this new addition to GoPro's lineup.

SOUND QUALITY - FROM THE GOPRO HD3 SPECS

Understanding that sound quality is as important as image quality, GoPro engineers completely redesigned the HERO3 to be as adept at capturing the subtle, natural sounds of voice and music as it is at capturing the immersive sounds of sport. Also improved is GoPro's already famous wind-noise reduction, ensuring that you'll hear more of your passion, be it your engine or expletives, and less of the wind during high speed activities.

Re: GoPro HD3 October ???

The footage from this camera on YouTube is just incredible.

The GoPro Hero 2 with Cineform is really nice. The Hero 3 is just amazing. The underwater footage has great color and terrific dynamic range.

I worked with three other POV cameras. None come close to this. Wow.

'Has anyone been able to purchase? Waited for the countdown where it said you would be able to but none of the new stuff's "Add to Cart" buttons don't seem to work on any of them.
