Re: [scottd818] GoPro 3 on Preorder

Release dates:
Silver - In 2 weeks
Black - Late November

I'll answer the below as far as the black edition is concerned.
Quote:
How many seconds will the photo burst mode (30fps) work? What resolution?
1 second burst / 12MP. However if you use continuous you can shoot at x frames per second until it reaches 30 frames. Good for landings or exits.

Quote:
How does the simultaneous photo/video feature work and what kind of resolution can you shoot while using both?
(Photo ever 5seconds, 10, 30, 60 or manually triggered)
One 12MPixel still while recording video in 1440p24 fps
One 8MPixel still while recording video in 1080p30 fps
One 8MPixel still while recording video in 720p60 fps

Quote:
Does it perform better in low light situations?
"Better" - Still don't know but the sensor is more sensitive according to the sell sheets

Quote:
Can you change the lenses now to make it less wide/fisheye?
Just like the gopro 2 you can change the FOV. However, on the black you have a nice piece of glass that allows you to do this with less distortion (according to the sell sheets)
