Low bit rate uploaded and crappy cloudy water viz but it did very well, the HD3 black.
In a 100 foot viz, that whale spinning footage in HD3 official video can be improved for its IQ ( my opinion ), because at that time 2.7K was not ready yet according to Abe the Chief video editor of GP.
My Inon H100 alone to get similar HD2 MEDIUM FOV 1080p for my RX100, cost 25% more than the entire HD3 Black he he he and will be almost equal if thrown in a URPRO-SRP color correction filter + UL ball mount & GoPro tripod adapter . URPRO-SRP will be available soon after DEMA.
This micro baby for wide angle will be nice.......damn, mine has not arrived yet.

Many issues and it seems bad reviews are popping up on amazon with same problems and a few other issues I did not have. Contacted customer support 3 times and never heard back so they seem to be backed up dealing with these issues.
My problems were, speaker picks up internal electronic noises during video that pulses along with the on and off blinking record light.
Video automatically segments itself not allowing for videos longer than 17:26. I can combine segments PP but should not have to
At $399 plus $80 lcd screen and more $ for a micro memory card I expected a better product

Video file automatically segmenting itself to max 4GB or that 17:26 you get.... is Microsoft limitation for FAT32 , you should know that if you have played with memory card based camcorder, google it. Some cameras will set limit lower, 2GB.
1st batch HD3 seems to have issue, usually freezing though not the noise you mentioned.
I hope my coming HD3 Black will be a later batch.

No manual white balance "more of a manual CHOOSE your white balance before recording from white balance presets or go Auto white balance"
Options for white balance are..3000K 5500K 6500K or cam raw
