Today’s reader question:
I noticed you have a GoPro 3 Black. After using it, would you recommend it to other snowboarders?
Honestly I was going to save answering this question for the full review, but I figure this will be a good way for me to get some feedback on what you guys want me to cover in the GoPro 3 Black review.
Firstly… yeah, I’d recommend the GoPro 3 Black BUT you have to be willing to put up with some random freezing issues in the current software. The latest software update *may* have fixed it, but I haven’t fully tested it since I updated the software today.
At the moment, here’s how the GoPro 3 Black stands in my eyes:
- Best picture quality out of current action cameras
- Best features and low light performance
- Kinda glitchy and buggy software that freezes/lags frames on the odd occasion
So yeah… awesome picture quality and settings, but crappy software that I hope they fix soon. I’ll talk about this more in the full review, but for now my recommendation comes with a huge warning that it can/will freeze on you once in awhile.
I’d still buy it since the picture quality still beats everything else and I can deal with the rare freezing issue, but be warned that it does have issues with the software.
One more thing…
What do you want me to cover in the GoPro 3 Black review? Are there specific questions you want me to answer? Anything snowboard specific you want to know? Let me know because I’ll be writing up the review + video for it this within the next week.
