Nice! Once you go black.

Tip* - Best accessory purchase so far, skeleton case. Charge / connect to screen whilst using in dry / clean conditions.

Get the Go-pro app Ric, makes framing the picture and setting up the go-pro easier......

Already done. Runs fine on my HTC Desire, once I went to the GoPro website to find out what the default wifi password was ;)

They're not that expensive! Hah.
Download GoPro Cineform Studio on to your pc, plug in your GoPro and remote and it'll tell you to update. Easy..

It's pretty easy. The main part is putting the camera into "Wireless RC" mode so the remote can find it.
If you have a smart phone, the GoPro App is an essential extra tool. Just be aware the camera can only be in either "App" mode, or "Remote Control" mode, not both at the same time.

Does the app have remote functionality? That'd be cool!

What's the cheapest place to get a Hero3 Black? Seems online is quite a bit cheaper than locally but are there any sites that aren't dodgy?

Are cheapo mounts off eBay any good, or should I look for a package type thing?
