REI has a 20% off sale for members, plus I have some gift cards so I thought the GoPro3 Silver might be a good idea.
Not sure if they will let you use that for the Hero, would be great. LMK if they do have $200 plus in divs to use.

Yeah, I called about that. The first person said it had a built in GPS so I couldn't use the 20% off, I said I didn't think so.....another person got on and said I could use it. Still looking into what I want.

Bringing this thread back up.....

Best Buy has a Black Friday Weekend deal on the Go Pro Hero 3 Black Edition. Normally $329 on sale for $249. The line last night was out the door and around the corner at 6pm for the $499 55" LG TV and the Go Pro. There was no way I was waiting, so I went back over at 10pm and of course they were all sold out of both. (Still had to wait to get in the store)

I drove over to the Best Buy at 25 and Colorado this morning, the parking lot was half full and there was hardly anyone in the store. As soon as I walked in the 55" LG was stacked 10 high on sale from $1099 to $499 and Go Pros were stacked 30 high. No lines, no waiting, no tickets needed.

I got the TV and ended up getting the Hero 3+ Black Edition instead of the regular HERO3 Black. I probably paid for the hype, but battery life and sound quality were big improvements on the 3+. Plus, I wanted the long range Wifi and remote. If you're in the market for a HERO 3 Black Edition and a really nice TV, there are still some to be had.

I am considering upgrading from the original Hero to a Hero3+...

Going to strap the original on my side kick, Ben.. I picked up the chesty mount this year, works great, we have been using our Hero a bunch this ski season.

Stan have you used yours much? I am curious about the firmware issues I have read about with the 3+, sounds like the 3+ has sharper image, 12mp photo vs. 5mp with the 3 and 30 minutes more battery life.

I'm actually pretty happy with it Chris. The movie editing software isn't my favorite though. I usually use something else to edit the videos. Video quality is good, the Super View is all hype though, I never use it. It's just over stretched video that distorts at the top and bottom.

The ability to control and view everything right from my iPhone is VERY cool. I can preview and view real time with sound right from my phone. I can even change all settings. Battery life stinks, but I ordered a Wasabi battery kit and charger from Amazon. It was only $20 and included 2 extra batteries and home/car charger. Now I can keep rotating them through with one always being charged, one in the camera, and one standing by.

This was probably the coolest upgrade. I was really happy when they came out with this. I use it all the time on trail runs or skiing.

My stepdad is a pro photographer and uses this function on his octocopter setup every shoot. It's amazing to see first person view on that thing.
