Ok, so as most of you probably already know, there is a ALL NEW GoPro HERO 3 coming out soon.

Faster, Smaller, Lighter, Better Quality, Built In Wi-Fi..etc..etc.

This Post is a General Discussion on what your opinion on the Two Models coming out of HERO 3.

They have the SILVER SERIES, which is is basically an updated HD Hero 2 camera with WiFi built in, the thinner size and and improved housing.
1080p/30fps, 960p/48fps, 720p/60fps
11MP photos
Up to 10 shots per second in photo burst mode

And then for $100 MORE.. They have a BLACK SERIES, Which includes the WiFi Remote ($80 value) and a better Camera
4K/15, 2.7K/30, 1440p/48fps, 1080p/60fps, 960p/100fps, 720p/120fps
12MP photos
New photo burst modes with up to 30 shots per second

There are hundreds of way to use and mount a GoPro. But, the most common, is Mount on your Bike, or Mount on your Helmet.

In these situations, it's a TOTAL PITA to have to (POWER ON, Make sure it's on, START. Recording, STOP Recording, POWER OFF, Switch to Camera Mode, Take some Rapid Shots, Switch Back to Video, Change Video Settings...etc..etc..)

That's where the WiFi Remote comes in. You strap it to your wrist like a Watch, and it has a MATCHING LCD Screen to exactly what your Camera is doing. Plus, a Big ON / OFF and Record Button.

So what's your opinion on what GoPro is doing ?

Is it worth spending $100 MORE for the Better Camera and the WiFi Remote ?

or would you just use your iPhone, or Droid device as a remote instead . and save the $100.?

Once again, just a General Discussion on these models. This isn't to debate GoPro vs. something else, or what they sell for.... etc. JUST Discussion on GoPro's Decision to have these two models.

If I was going to buy one, I'd spring for the extra $100. Using my phone wouldn't really be feasible without springing for some new gloves that will work with a capacitive touchscreen, and even then I'm usually using it for GPS and leave it in the ch

If I was going to buy one, I'd spring for the extra $100. Using my phone wouldn't really be feasible without springing for some new gloves that will work with a capacitive touchscreen, and even then I'm usually using it for GPS and leave it in the chest pocket of my jacket, not on the bike.
