open topic, for anything cycling related.
If you buy direct from GoPro they also slug you with a ~$65 or around that (possibly $85, I can't remember) 'shipping fee'. You can double check how much it is by going to the shipping section of the checkout process with the camera in your shopping cart.
If you need to send the camera back due to warranty issues just remember that you'll have to wear the international post fee (in excess of $13) to send back to the USA instead of sending to a local place.
Those are also considerations when purchasing direct or from an Australian seller.
That being said I purchased my Hero3 Black direct from GoPro because it was cheaper at the time than purchasing from an Australian dealer (even factoring in the huge shipping fee).
I bought my Class 10 32GB micro SD card from JB HiFi.
All I want is a camera with a frikkin' laser attached to its head.
Now that would be cool!

Haven't had any trouble with my gopro silver, Concerning the fogging if you can sit the camera with the bike for a while to try and get the temps the same before closing the case it seems to help a bit. Otherwise the anti fog inserts are suppose to work.

Just swap the back door depending on the weather. Even in wet conditions I run the skeleton door but when when it starts to get to solid rain I'll wack on the waterproof door. Its easy to change at a set of lights.
Unless you're placing your camera under water, you should use the skeleton back for the case. It stops the fogging. I use it regularly when it is raining heavily and the rain does not get in to the camera.

Thanks for the idea, I'll try the skeleton tomorrow. I've always been too paranoid but keen to get improved audio if possible.
Noticed yesterday that the H3B with firmware 2.39 and the battery bacpac no longer has the flicking light issue on the bacpac. The light is now in sync with the camera lights. Yay.

I didn't read the comparison chart on the GoPro web site properly , because the RRP is $400 not $300, so once you include the SD card the price difference with HTA isn't that much.
What's the deal with these Hero 3 Black lockouts I keep reading about? That's making me have 2nd thoughts about buying one.
I was talking about KonaCommuter's comment above about the camera locking up, plus I've read other comments about it too.
I read somewhere that locking can be caused by slower sd cards and 64gb cards. I'm using a 32gb class 10 card and I haven't had the problem however I've not used it much (also only ever used it qith the latest firmware).
OK, thanks. I've also been reading the GoPro forums, and at least if I get locking occurring, I'll know that the particular card I use with it may be the cause.
Have any of you seen this? Sandisk Extreme Pro 32GB Class 10 SDHC card. According to the GoPro forums, this may be a good choice for use with the Hero 3 Black. These Extreme Pro cards must be very new in the 32GB capacity, too, because a post earlier this month on the GoPro forums said they only went up to 16GB.
VRE - you need a micro SD card for the GoPro Hero3 Black. Unless I'm blind (which is quite possible) that link was to a standard SD card.
I use a Sandisk Ultra 32GB class 10 micro SD card. Haven't had any SD card issues whatsoever.
Sorry, my mistake, I know the micro size is needed, but didn't properly read the web site I just quoted .
Don't worry - I bought an SD card all ready for when my lovely Hero3 arrived... Only to have to take it back to the store for a refund as I didn't know that the camera only took micro.
One of the major attractions of the GoPro was the ability to take a 64gb card. I'll pare back to a 32 if that'll sort it. Fwiw I've got a class 10 card sourced through HTA at time of buying the camera.
I'm just a bit over buying stuff that doesn't work as advertised. Even paying a premium doesn't appear to ensure quality

Went for a mountain bike ride this morning. Stopped to tighten up the stem bolts as there was a bit of play in the bars relative to the steerer tube. Jumped off, grabbed the multi-toolout of the bag, tightened them up and took off again. Arrived in at work and noted that the bars weren't perfectly aligned. Went in the bag for the multi-tool again....missing. Crap, must have left it on the trail.
Reviewed the footage by way of the jumbo 808 on the helmet, watched myself tighten up the stem bolts then jump on the bike. Just as I take off I must have looked down and in the corner of the frame is the multi-tool sitting in the grass on the edge of the trail. Now I know exactly where I left it and hopefully it'll still be there in the morning, when I get out there again. If I find it, the camera has effectively payed for itself in saving me from buying a new multi-tool.
I tried that a while ago when my light came apart and dropped the lens end and batteries. Turns out it slipped just out of camera range as it rotated downwards around the bars before falling apart. Could only narrow it down to about 10min riding. Lucky it was only a $15 light that was of dubious reliability.

Ended up going back next day and found it too. So happy about that.
Although, I tried to upload a video to YouTube a couple of days ago which somehow failed as i left it go overnight. Now for some reason the camera won't power on when not plugged in.
Anyone had any experience trying to get a jumbo 808 to power on after it failing to?
Try plugging it back into a computer. When mine got wet and died, it only came back to life once I plugged it in.
