Default Go Pro Hero3

Rich, I just got "The Frame" for my Hero3 from Amazon.
$40.00 list, and I paid $20.00. It's a genuine GoPro
accessory, and inside the box are TWO frames. One for a
plain Hero3, and one for a Hero3 with a "backpack". I don't have
a backpack yet, but it's nice of GoPro to include both! Also in the box
is a lens cover as the waterproof housing supplies lens protection
when the camera is installed in it, but the lens has no protection
when it's outside of the waterproof cover. Nice item to have as well!
There is also a "quick connect" attached to one of the frames with
an attachment bolt that can also be used for other mounts. One flat
adhesive mount, and one curved adhesive mount complete the
package. All in all, I feel like I really got my moneys worth on this
accessory. I also ran across a video that shows someone using one
of the LCD backpacks, and it looks to be MUCH simpler to manipulate
the camera with that than with the front panel LCD.
More info later as I find out more about the camera.............
Andy (The Budding Videographer............NOT! LOL)

Thanks Andy. Any chance you could put a link to that video using the backpack here so I could take a look at it?

The video I saw it in is........
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7GfZMtfTh_s
but it's mostly about customizing a Pelican case for the Hero3 with just
a little about the LCD backpack as a part of that video.

Here's a better one, and THIS one gets me thinking about getting one.

So many things to spend my money on, and so little time.........!

Yeah, that looks a lot more useful. But I have to wonder how much damage it will do to battery longevity, since it is apparently drawing power from the GoPro's battery when running.

I'm not sure, but I think you can shut the bacpac off after you set up the
camera and compose the shot. It looks like there is a power button on the
same side as the speaker and headphone jack.

I think the Hero3+ version is the latest one available. Supposed to have 30% more battery life.

This might be off the table for a while. Got something else going on that might sink the budget for a while.....

I was wondering if you could use the Hero3 as a dashcam and just keep
recording until you manually stop it. I sent a "contact us" request to the
Go Pro people and got a response back telling me that "YES, you can"!
They pointed me to page 35 of the manual which says..........

Looping Video mode allows you to record a continuously looping video that
overwrites itself until you press the Shutter/Select Button button to stop it.
Looping Video is not available if Protune mode is turned ON.
Looping Video options include:

OFF (Default)

Max video - Camera records until memory card is full, then overwrites
with a new video.

5 min video - Camera records for 5 minutes, then begins a new video,
progressively overwriting the previous 5 minute video.

20 min video - Camera records for 20 minutes, then begins a new video,
progressively overwriting the previous 20 minute video.

60 min video - Camera records for 60 minutes, then begins a new video,
progressively overwriting the previous 60 minute video.

120 min video - Camera records for 120 minutes, then begins a new video,
progressively overwriting the previous 120 minute video.

This looks interesting, and I just might have to play with this feature
a little bit.......
Andy

That could actually be right handy to set it up as a security camera.

I've been playing around with the camera again tonite and decided to try
using the GoPro APP on my iPhone to do the setup with. WHOA! MUCH
EASIER! It feels more "intuitive" when using the iPhone. You can do everything
on the iPhone that you can on that tiny LCD screen, only with less eye strain
and a WHOLE lot easier. Sort of makes having the LCD touch bacpac redundant.
I guess that if you don't have a phone that will run the GoPro APP, the touch
bacpac could be a necessity, but with the APP, you're good to go.

A screenshot of the initial GoPro APP.





A screenshot of part of the screen that comes up when you select the
"wrench" (setup) .



all of the fields can be selected and values chosen. MUCH better than the
LCD screen
