I’ve been using both the OEM GoPro and Wasabi batteries in my GoPro 3 with great success. However this triple pack (at under £15) from Duragadget are also doing really well. Reviews from across the net are confirming my findings that they are definitely up to the job and are superb value.
I also have a GoPro battery BacPac in for test, to date this is working really well. I don’t like the additional weight when wearing the unit on my helmet, but when it’s on the boat or tripod it is spot on.
I own a couple of GoPro Hero 3’s including Black and Silver editions. All have been updated with the latest firmware. I always format the card and take one photo before using auto update on the GoPro support site. Not following the instructions to the letter can lead to your GoPro not being updated correctly/fully.
I had another chance to take my Wavesport Recon 93 out for a spin at the Tees Barrage International White Water Course.
[UPDATE: GoPro have released the Hero 7 Black Edition. You can find more about it here.]
My black edition Gopro Hero 3 arrived in the UK a couple of weeks ago. The form factor will be familiar to all who have seen or already own the white or silver editions.
Looking at the different cameras (I have silver and black editions) the “3” within Hero3 is coloured to match the cameras edition. That is the Black edition’s 3 is black and the Silver Editions 3 is silver etc. But what really makes the white, silver and black editions different to one another is what goes on inside.
My GoPro Hero 3 Black edition arrived this week. The form factor is identical to that of the Silver Edition I already have, as it’s the internals that are different.
One of the new GoPro “The Frame” mounts landed yesterday.
The mount is designed to house the new GoPro Hero 3 series (white, silver, and black). The images below show the mount being used with a Silver series HD3. Continue reading
