Summary: Great camera. Some will say there is little difference between the HERO3 White and the HERO but that's not true. The HERO3 has the added benefits of wifi (enabling you to use the GoPro app and remote), LCD backpack compatibility, and time lapses at intervals other than .5s.
Summary: This item does NOT include a 197'/60m dive case. It's the 40m case instead that actually has small holes to better capture audio. Pay $20 lass and get the Hero3 white that is actually labeled correctly.
Great when it works. GoPro support is awful though. Good luck getting help if it fails.

Summary: I know this can be a great camera, but the case leaked the very first time we used it and the water killed the camera. So we paid hundreds of dollars for nothing. When we complained to gopro they would not do anything to help. No refund, no repair, nothing.
Summary: Impulse buy...now I will never go without one. Works perfectly. I guess the newer ones already have the firmware updated because mine had no paper saying to update it first, like I saw on some video reviews. The video is surprisingly steady when mounted to my motorcycle for track day sessions.
It will be nice when we figure out how to stream this to ...

Summary: It will be nice when we figure out how to stream this to a tv 100 feet away. We bought it for that purpose and have spent the last 7 months trying to make it work. Amazing how slow some projects can go when we don't want to hire capable help (that means $3,000 worth anyway.
Summary: Very rugged, great images, highly versatile. Can be very finicky to work with. The battery life is not what I would expect and for my purposes of recording track sessions I switched to a hard wired set up. The remote (sold separately) is highly variable as well.
Summary: I purchased this as a gift. It worked fine when we got it. Then it started deleting videos and not recording. Light shows it is but nothing is recorded. We thought product needed updating we updated same problem. if it does record the clips are no longer than 7mins....any one having this issue??
Summary: I am loving this little camera that can take a beating. My main use is capturing footage during mudding and it performs perfectly. The waterproof case is truly waterproof and you can throw this off a cliff and I'm sure it'll survive.
Superb product. Too bad the newest edition is actually a step backwards.

Summary: I used this GoPro HERO3: White Edition on a week long dive trip to Roatan. The video is superb and the wide angle is excellent with no visual distortion. I bought this older edition because the new White Edition is only waterproof down to 131' vs this which is waterproof down to 197'.
