#324652 GoPro Hero 3 Black, Suprise, it's decent

Posted by ronscuba on 17 January 2013 - 01:27 PM

I sold my beloved Sony FX7 and Gates housing last year. Having dove and shot video in Galapagos and Indonesia, I felt my days of big exotic scuba trips were in the past, so I sold my system.

Just got back from a trip to Belize and was surprised by the GoPro Hero 3 black. It's no FX7, but for $400, this things shoots decent video.

Here is something I quickly threw together. Shot mostly at 2.7k resolution, protune on, camraw WB setting. Cheap drop in gel filter. Very limited correction in editing. Mainly just contrast and brightness adjustments. A few clips shot with 1080k protune off and auto WB. The small size makes shooting steady a challenge. Rendered to 720 for online.
