My friend Dave Dugdale just posted a great review on the Go Pro Hero 3 Black Edition. Something that is important about this video is that Dave mentions a lot of the problems users are going to run into, including:
- Poor Battery Life
- Variable Shutter Speeds
- Lens gets finger prints easy
- Locking up due to firmware issues (this is a big one).

I have yet to play with mine, but I sure hope I don't have any issues with it. Ill let you guys know.
