    Go Pro Hero3 White

    I bought one of these not too long ago. I tried it out for the first time yesterday and the video quality was horrible. My Hero 2 is better. My Hero 3+ black shoots very nice and sharp video.

    Does anyone else have experience with this model?

    I first connected it by HDMI to a 40 inch lcd. Then i tried on my laptop. I use VLC for playback. I did 720p 60fps. The picture is fuzzy. Im going to try holding the 2 side by side and taking the same recording and see if i can tell a difference to get a comparison to my Hero 3+ black.

    okay the [email protected] should be fine but i would bump it to [email protected] that might make a difference with playback.

    when i mentioned render i should have been more specific. i meant what are you using to edit the footage? if you are on a PC the files should play in windows media player. when editing the footage down try gopro studio since its free.

    once you have made a video if you use gopro studio (its all i use) be careful on what format you choose to render in. some are not that good. i typically go for youtube settings.
    once you upload it to youtube it can take a while for it to be available in HD. it is watchable as soon as its uploaded but only in 480 which doesnt look that good.

    Straight out of the camera connected to my TV it looks really grainy and not sharp. The quality from my Hero 3+ Black is stunning on the same TV. I have read in other places that the White is basically the original Hero just in a smaller package, and the 3 Silver is basically the Hero 2 in a smaller package. My Hero 2 makes a nicer picture than the Hero 3 White. I may just return the Hero3 White and go for the new Garmin when its available.

    Hrm... i wonder if the new hero would be better than the white. it will go [email protected] just no removable battery.

    i had thought the white was a stripped down version of the silver which is a striped down version of the black with all 3 having more or less the same HD ability just not all the fancy settings.
