    I really need to do a little reading up on this camera to see what other users are saying and their uses for it.

    GoPro made a worthy improvement with the Hero3, I, ordered mine (HumbleOutdoors w/free 32GB mini SD card) two days ago. For me, it’s the integrated Wi-Fi and new slimmer dimensions.
