Does this camera has or has not that issue with the lens focus ? want to buy it as my ion air pro let me down, cheers 2 Aug 2014
So far i didnt have a problem, so i think they fixed the problem already... i read in reviews few months ago about this issue and there was like a serie of gopro starting with some kind of serial number and they all had this problem... so i waited few months read again some reviews where people were saing that they dont have this problems anymore and than i got mine... so long version short... i think it is fixed now and my camera works 100%
Has anyone used it as a dashboard-mounted camcorder in a car? Is the depth of field satisfactory? 2 Jul 2014
I've used mine on a suction mount inside the w/screen and it is superb. DOF perfect clarity beyond reproach. Just waiting for handlebar mount on my motorbike.
Still for sale on the Go pro website..... so no idea why! Can only assume that it's about to be updated
Do you need to buy a separate charger for the battery? I heard the Wasabi battery is really good for Go Pros and extends their battery life... 21 May 2014
The GoPro comes with its own rechargeable battery and charger. I don't know about the Wasabi being better, but the GoPro battery seems to last for ages, plenty of time for filling the card with video/photos. If you are going to use the GoPro for longer periods then perhaps a second fully charged battery would come in useful, but in my experience so far, the GoPro's own battery could not be bettered. Another thing to mention is that I use my GoPro (Black edition) mainly with my Phantom 2 quadcopter and when the GoPro is connected to the quad it uses the quad's own battery power, thus saving the GoPro's own battery. However, if you wish to use the GoPro with sport I suggest you try the camera first before you spend any more money on another battery.
Yes this is the real deal. Full GoPro Hero3+ package. Full UK spec with Wi-Fi remote, 2 quick release buckles, 2 adhesive mounts and 3 way pivot arm. You get the waterproof casing and an extra back cover with vents when not using camera under water. You also get a battery and USB cables for charging the camera and one for the remote. The only extra you will need to buy to get going is a micro SD card. You can even use the mount that is part of the packaging as a table top mount. )You just need to remove it carefully with a craft knife by slicing through the foam mounts which attach it to the box lid :)
Is this mountable on front of a motorbike? Is there a mount? Is there a protective lens cover to stop stones, bugs etc damaging it while driving? 7 Jul 2014
Yes it is possible on a bike and there is xtra equipment, like protective, transparent covers to buy. You will love it :-)
Are there any issues with bright lights entering the lens when driving in traffic at night? (Can it damage the camera?) 18 Jul 2014
I used mine, mounted on the roof of my friends car at night. We drove both in the country and on the motor way and the footage was great. The camera deals with low light and high contrasts well and as far as I know light (of any kind) wont damage the camera.
I am thinking of using this (3+ black edition) for airsoft, does the protective casing cover the lens? Also how much memory will I need for 6 hours? 6 Nov 2014
The camera is inside a waterproof case so is completely sealed and covers the lens. I have a 32 gb card that records about 4 1/2 hours at 1080p 24fps. See here http://gopro.com/support/articles/hero3plus-recording-time-in-each-video-setting . You may need more batteries though as it lasts about 2 1/2 hours
