GoPro Hero3 Black Testing

I’ve been keeping an eye on these for a few years now and whilst the Hero 2 was very tempting I held off to see what was on the horizon. Late in 2012 the Hero3 BLACK was announced. Apart from the weatherproofing the 2 things that stood out for me was the ability to shoot video at Full HD 1080 but at double the frame rate ( 50fps –  Frames per second,  ( PAL ) whch for America and their NTSC TV system is 60fps ). This is double the normal Telecast frame rate so you can drop down to half speed and it will looks good with no dropped frames.

The BLACK version also does 100 fps or 120 fps in NTSC settings but only at a 720p Semi Full HD resolution but running at  ONE QUARTER SPEED.

Here is some of the footage I took

    The new Go Pros are certainly a step up in quality and ability. The Go Pro 2, that I have are amazing, have had mine for a year or so.
    I am keen to get the GP3, but cannot justify the additional expense, love the 60fps slo mo ability, very easy on the eye.
