    What do you think guys about their new product? I like taking 3+ blacks when traveling etc. but not sure if its worth upgrading right now. They may realease 4+ version within next few months.

    I definitely am going to get a couple of Hero4's but I'm pondering about how many minutes can it record in 4k while Protune is turned off on a 64GB Memory card. It's a bummer they don't have support bigger memory and batteries. I gotta carry around a couple of them with USB Chargers and a monster battery bank. There are not many reviews available right now that talks about device heating.

    Yeah, they eat batteries pretty quick. New model probably won't be an exception as well. Thought it is about time to sell the previous generation ones while the sales have not yet started on eBay, Amazon...

    GoPro's are awesome and a ton of fun if you use them like they're intended.

    Honestly though -- they're business/marketing is even more interesting than the product.

    They really know how to sell through stories.

    Edit: Watched the video, so are they trying to pioneer the > 1080p movement for consumer video?

    My honest opinion is it sounds like the title of a porno.

    Agree, they know how to market their products. Yes, kinda same happended when they released their first hero with 1080p support. Full hd screens have not been widely used back then.

    haha micky. Seems like lately all you think about is sex, get laid dawg :D

    I think it is so siick. The Black edition is the only way to go. But I wouldn't buy one because it is 500 and I already have one, not worth it to me right now

    You can resell your, can't you? eBay, Amazon has not yet started selling it, so older generation still holds it's price...more or less
