I see a GoPro Hero3 White with Wi-Fi Waterproof to 197 at our neighborhood Target, priced at $199.99, plus a $40.00 Target Gift Card with the purchase. I am a novice and want to buy it for daughter & soon son-in-law for Honeymoon to the oceans. What are your quick thoughts? Any problems?, has 1080p Video capture, is gear mountable, why cheap-ish? -compared to another? THANK YOU for Ask-an-Expert!!!
Does this Hero 3+ plastic housing require the black lower mounting piece shown to remain in place? If using for scuba diving I would think it would be in the way in handling underwater.
We ride (motorcycle) a lot and want one to use for that purpose, which is better, HERO3+ or HERO3?
I have seen the displays in stores, and the quality of the imagines is incredible for above water and very, very shallow water. The ad says it performs well in low-light situations…but how does it do on a reef at 80 feet where everything is blue? I am leery of not having an external light… Is it available with any light attachments?
The blue look you refer to has little to do with depth and just about everything to do with the distance from the subject the shots or video is shot at. Even the clearest and brightest waters will produce "blue" shots if you are more than a few feet from your subject. It performs as well as any other current production underwater camera in low light conditions. Digital cameras do compensate a bit for low light, but adding a strobe or LED Video light will always help with color correction and light enhancement on any underwater camera.
Does the current offer include an extra battery and remote (as implied by the ad) or is the ad just referencing the battery and remote that come standard with camera (Hero 3+ Black)?
Unless Im missing something, this offer seems quite deceiving!! It says buy this (Gopro Hero 3+ Black), get this (wifi remote, flat adhesive mounts) free. The items scuba.com is mentioning as free (wifi remote and flat adhesive mounts & battery & usb cable) come standard in ALL Gopro Black Edition sets priced everywhere at $399.99. Its like saying, by this car, get four wheels free... the ones on it! So, will ask again, with the supposed free additional items, how many wifi remotes (total) and how many adhesive mounts (total) come with this offer?
Which Go Pro cameras come with a viewing lense so I can see what I am taking a picture of or do I have to order this as an accessory? If so, how much does it cost? Thanks Jim
None of them do. That would be an Add On item for a GoPro. That would be the LCD Touch BacPac http://www.scuba.com/scuba-gear-540/168311/Gopro-Hero-3---Hero-3+-LCD-Touch-BacPac.html
Says it comes with a SD card. What class SD card is that?
