Comments about GoPro HERO3 Black Edition Wide-Angle Helmet Cam - Motorsports Package:
I own the original Go pro and went from that to this. HUGE HUGE jump of course. Love how small it is compared to the old model. Only issue I see with it is the battery life is short but reading reviews about it before buying it knew it was a issue.
Otherwise is it a excellent product and would recommend it for people who are avid video and photography gurus
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend
