I wasn’t a massive fan of the early GoPros but the latest GoPro 3 is a very useful tool for when there simply isn’t space or time to use anything else.
The new version boasts a much sharper picture, less distortion and truer colours.
Using the ‘ProTune’ setting you can reduce the amount of internal processing, improving contrast handling and digitally sharpening the image. ‘ProTune’ also raises the bit rate your video is recorded at, up to a maximum of 45mbps.
I also have modified Black Editions with improved lens options, offering less distortion and vastly improved optics compared to the stock GoPro.
