The Hero 3 is a great camera. I use it for biking, skateboarding, water sports, a lot of things. And it handles everything I've thrown at it. Great pictures and video. But I wish I had waited a little to get the 3+. I guess it's like that with just about any electronic gadget. The next one is the always going to be the one you want. But the weaknesses of the 3 were addressed somewhat in the 3+, especially battery life. Poor battery life is the biggest problem with the 3, which is the primary reason I rated it mediocre for performance and durability. I have to constantly turn the unit on and off to preserve batteries, and I even take several fully charged batteries with me. Plus, charging the batteries takes forever. It's really an overnight venture. Huge hassle.

I'm looking forward to trying out the newer Hero 4. Hope to get my hands on one soon and letting you know how I like it.
