Hi fellow GoPro Enthusiast
this is a good POV camera for action and sports capturing your moments. GoPro1 and 2 have the same body so their accessories are mostly interchangeable. The GoPro3 is a new body altogether so you would need to upgrade some of your old accessories (ie LCD bacpac....) Good news ithey still use the same back case and the mounts are still the same!
I've used it as an in-car camera (Good wide angle of view though battery life will suck) and for biking trips.

comparison between GoPro2 vs 3

blue_line 24-12-2012 02:20 PM

I am deciding between a Gopro Hero 3 Silver and Black edition.

Anyone can give any advise?

Ultrafire 25-12-2012 09:50 PM

is it cheaper to get from say amazon ?

blue_line 27-12-2012 11:19 PM

definitely. just ordered a gopro hero 3!

blue_line 31-12-2012 11:16 AM

anybody wants to share shipping for wasabi battery pack?

Amazon.com: Wasabi Power Battery (2-Pack) and Charger for GoPro HD HERO3 and GoPro AHDBT-201, AHDBT-301: Camera & Photo

got some quite good reviews online.

Maybe can merge this thread with the one from EDMW

Streamcast Asia has a shop at Alexandra Retail Center, Outdoor Sports Travel. They usually will have stock even when other retailers (eg Harvery Norman, Cathay Photo) run out of theirs.

facebook: https://www.facebook.com/OutdoorSpor...ref=ts&fref=ts
website: Home page

You can get a $30 discount coupon for $500 purchase from their retail shop which you can use to buy from their online shop. Purchases above $100 comes with free delivery.

Local RRP for addition accessories:

LCD Touch Bacpac/ LCD Bacpac: $134
The Frame: $64
New/Old suction Cup mount: $53
Hero 3 Battery Bacpac: $88
Replacement battery: $35 (coming soon in Jan, price was quoted by salesperson)

I still dunno why they are selling the old/new lcd bacpac/suction cup mount at the same price.

It's definitely cheaper to buy from Amazon, though you have to ship back for repairs/warranty purposes. Maybe you can buy the camera locally and the mounting accessories from Amazon (accessories won't be faulty)

Between Silver and Black edition, it's better to buy the Black as it comes with the WIFI remote.

Local Silver + WIFI remote: $469 + $129 = $598
Local Black = $599

You can get the frame and access the usb port to charge the camera using in car charger. Did you set your camera to video looping mode?

I'm kinda interested. We can get free shipping right if we order 2 sets? How much do you think it will be after converting to SGD?

blue_line 31-12-2012 03:15 PM

yea we will have free shipping.. can expect exchange rate to be usd1=sgd1.26 that is based off a transaction I did one week ago.

Still need to add in the vpost delivery. I don't expect it to go more than SGD40 though.

Ah, thats still a better deal compared to $35 for 1 original HD3 battery without the chargers.

There's some promo codes for Credit/Debit Card on Vpost, $10 off for purchase above SGD 40 valid till 31st Dec.
