Ok, verdict on the GoPro Hero 3.....DON'T WASTE YOUR MONEY. First thing, when you open the GoPro box you have to update the firmware on the device. A harmless task. The problem is after you install the firmware. I tried recording a my first video and the device froze. And the only way to unfreeze it is to take out the battery and reinstall it. Even when you do that, 3 seconds after you start the device, it freezes. :facepalm: After about 2hrs, of somehow fixing the freezing issue, now it doesn't want to recognize that I have a memory card in the device, "SD ERR". And yes, I did have the correct memory cards that the GoPro requires plus recommended. Tried 3 different memory cards, formatted them, still no luck. After 2 more hrs of researching and trying to fix the "SD ERR" issue, I said f*ck it. This is going back to Amazon.
GoPro for your crap azz Hero 3. Still love your Hero 2's though. Apparently the freezing and memory card issue is common with the Hero 3's.
