GoPro Hero3 Black Edition, Helmet Cam and Audio Test

First test with the GoPro Hero3 Black Edition. 1080p @ 30fps. At a glance, the video quality is stunning! What caught me off guard is the file size.

With my old HeroHD, an hour of video is roughly 1GB at 720p/30fps. The Hero3 doesn't have a 720p/30fps mode, the closest settings are 720p/60fps and 1080p/30fps. With either of those, I'm getting roughly 10 minutes at 1.2GB!! HUGE difference. Had I realized that, I would have bought a 64GB sd card instead of the 16GB I got.
