Hi guys,

Just bought a Go Pro 3 black edition which has the Wifi and remote. Just bought a roll cage mount and a 16gbmini SD card to get it up and running with the aim to do some trackday filming plus other things.

I've read through the 67 odd page PDF manual a few times but really need some actual user advise from people who have done some trackday filming and loading onto YouTube.

It comes pre set on 1440hp which when I loaded a 10 second video onto the comp and viewed on real player it was 109mb for 10 seconds which is huge! Fill my card within minutes and to big to load onto YouTube.

I turned it down to 740hp and the quality is reduced but still pretty good and file size is much better.

Just after some user advise and what settings you've used as I don't want my sessions at FCS this weekend not watchable etc.

Thanks

I just popped into tesco and bought a 16gb card. Should be enough for 3 15 minute sessions on sat.
Have you used it on 1080?

Film it on 720P , the FPS are a bit higher then on higher resolution, and it gives a nicer movie, and still will be very big, but a lot less then on 1080


And the nicest setting i think if use the fisheye/ wideangle setting

Yeah mines now yet on 720 or 740, 100 FPS and on wide angle.

It looked ok, will fit it on the car tomorrow and have a rip up the road and see how it is

If you're running low on space then 720p at 24FPS should be fine. No point using 100FPS unless you plan on editing some super-slow-mos into the final video.

I'd recommend a 32GB card for piece of mind more than anything. More space is always useful Smile

I run mine at 960 48fps and manage to get plenty of footage (few hrs) on my 32gb class 10 card.

I use my silver edition on 1080p, I think 30fps. From memory it's the only one that let's me use the narrow recording setting, not a fan of the fish eye.
I think around 10 mins of recording uses about 2gb on them settings.

EDIT: I find most of the quality is lost when YouTube does its processing once uploaded.

Ive got the motorsport edition, and for just some fooling around theyre pretty good.

I love the fisheye mode when its attached inside to the sunroof, gives a very nice overview

I went for the 2HD, friends had way too many issues with their 3's.

Won't be using mine for cars though!

This is my GP2 Hero at 1080p 25fps

http://youtu.be/ubbydlK-DRo

At certain points around 100mph (didn't dare go any quicker with the wheel vibration) you can see the camera shake and blur as it does so. If I'd run 48fps and 720/960 this would not have happened.

In future I'll run lower quality, especially if there's lower light levels
