Are these figures below correct with a standard battery that comes with the Go Pro
Recording time will vary according to the resolution setting used and the card capacity. Here are the average recording storage times for a 32GB SD card:
•1080p (30 fps): 4h 21m
•960p (30 fps): 5h 26m
•720p (60 fps): 4h 21
•720p (30 fps): 8h 09m
•WVGA (60 fps): 8h 09m
Are these figures correct in any way shape and form
Any real time data would be great as i have read that at 1080p the battery can die in less then 1 hour.
Also I was looking at purchising a Vented helmet strap to attachto the Go Pro to my Merida Road Bike. Can some please advise if you have mounted the Go Pro elsewhere on the bike facing forward and how did you find it along with the audio.
Any advise appriciated
On my GoPro Hero 3 Black, running at 1080p with 25fps, the battery lasts 1 hour 40 minutes maximum, less in colder weather. The battery life is worse than on the original Hero 1 (I've had one of those for several years). You can extend the battery life to a maximum of about 3 hours 20 mins, but only by using the clip-on 2nd battery which adds 50g to the weight (a bit of a nuisance if you're mounting it on your helmet).
Regarding your previous post about light-sensitivity, the Hero 3 Black has very good low-light performance, one of the main reasons I bought it.
