Re: GoPro HD3 October ???

Anyone seen their credit card charged that have ordered the new camera? I was going through my account last night and looks like they have charged mine.

Hopefully we will start seeing them in the wild next week.

From where did you order the housing with 25 foot cable ? I am thinking of using this to film kingfishers diving for fish from an overhanging perch.

Hi Neil... it's this one.
Eye Of Mine Underwater Video Out Housing GoPro

I just got it today. Looks good. Of course this means the housing is a lot bigger than the standard housing. But it does allow a cable to be connected to the camera.

The 25-foot cable is very pliable, with an RCA plug at the end.

I saw 32 GB Sandisk class 10 cards at Costco About $26. These are the same cards sold on the GoPro website.

Best Buy has a few.
There is a charging bug showing up in a lot of cameras and I haven't heard anything good about the WiFi yet. IQ is good and so far protune is behaving.

Re: GoPro HD3 October ???

At the risk of sounding like a whiner, wee bit annoyed that they did that big release night with the countdown timer on their site, which I stayed up till 2am for and spent an additional hour dealing with the site timing out/crashing to get my order in and it's showing up in stores before mine has arrived. Actually don't even think they've even shipped it yet.

Re: GoPro HD3 October ???

My wifi worked briefly, but as soon as I tested out the remote, the option on the camera to connect to the GoPro app disappeared for good.

Re: GoPro HD3 October ???

Hi Ian,

After I updated the firmware I was able to enable the GoPro app in the camera's menu. No live preview, but the controls worked. Next I tried the wifi remote and it worked, but the menu option to enable the GoPro app. disappeared when I did this.

Now the only options under wireless controls are for the remote.

Re: GoPro HD3 October ???

Sorry Kevin, things changed again, just realised this,

For HERO3:
App compatibility with the HERO3 will be available for White and Silver Editions on November 12, 2012, and for Black Edition Dec 14th 2012. A software update for your HERO3 camera will then be required before using the GoPro app.
