Well after 1 1/2 months I can tell a bit about my experience with GoPro Hero 3 Plus Camcorder – combined : I am very excited .
+ The smallness of the camera : you’re at the car or on a helmet they can be mounted almost anywhere very good. And it just does not carry weight .
+ The mounting system is easy to use and conceptually very well : I have to increase the flexibility still a lot to buy , such as the suction cup or the handlebar clamp . Everything keeps very well. Of course, these things cost each additional – but these supplements have so far always been found to be very useful and functional.
+ Film quality : the depth of field is very good – even objects are further away very sharply – in stark contrast to the negative reviews – but possibly it is just on the newer production batch ( of course I can not prove ) . With my camera, it ‘s just very good. I also like the ” vibration damping ” , if I may so express it amateurish – especially for motor vehicles vibrations are anyway available and are strongly damped . For close-ups the GoPro is also very good.
+ Photo quality : Test, I have a few photos shot – from near to far: here I would close photos with 4 stars , the vast 3 mark – much better than the iPod camera, but comes to a “real” camera the GoPro not approach – but that’s not the area that it exercised by me.
+ Sound: even with a closed outer shell very clear recording (eg voice signals) – wind and engine noise occurs just very prominent (but this problem I knew of other cameras as well) . When you play here later with the filtering , but this can largely be solved .
+ GoPro App : best, I think , the camera can be operated ( from your iPod with me) with the app . Easy to handle and all adjust very functional and easy – just even if you can not directly to the camera.
+ Wi-Fi: The error that the Wi-Fi ( in the sheath ) is not on / off leaves , or partially fails, it never gave me. The time delay in the live broadcast is slightly more than 2 seconds.
Two small problems I would like to mention with GoPro Hero 3 Plus Camcorder :
– For the darkness I have not found a good attitude : to prove events or actions, the camera is sufficient proof – even in little street lighting. But good quality should we not expect . But again, this is not the added thought of my main application .
– The batteries do not last too long – especially, of course , if you have the Wi-Fi turned on.
GoPro Hero 3 Plus Camcorder is just good.
My favorite recording setting : 1080p , 50fps , FOV medium.
My Memory Card: SanDisk microSDHC 64GB Extreme Plus .
