Battery Life, Lens Improvement and Faster Wifi alone makes it worth the $70 extra bucks if you are using it for production.
For play... not worth it
very nice post to read first thing in the morning, just as i'm opening the packaging of my second hero 3, LOL. now i'm debating whether the improvements are really significant, beyond the marketing speak.
Auto Low Light records in variable frame rates, which is going to be a real pain for post production.
I hope they fixed the freezing issues. All the features in the world are meaningless when the camera freezes at key moments.
@Archie - Not sure what you mean, it's still the same camera, just about the same size (just slimmer). I don't think there will be any problems with the DJI.
Poor DJI.. so much was hardcoded to Hero3
If it can be mounted, they will mount it.... *straps gopro to blue whale's tooth*
this isn't saying the 3+ is 20% smaller and lighter than the hero3 is it? it's going to be invisible soon if it is...
