60 fps in 1080 is awesome, especially for car vids. On my Hero 1, I kept it at 720 60fps to avoid the "jello" effect when using a higher resolution with a lower fps for high action scene.
The night videos on hero 3 is a massive improvement over hero 1 and 2 cameras. I am looking to understand the black edition hero 3 and it's benefits when using protune (true potential for the camera).
edit: I am talking strictly black edition hero 3. The other versions are shown to be just gopro 2 cameras with wifi built in.
Iv used the wifi remote...I guess it depends on the user but I think its completely useless and plus for another $110 for he remote, Ill say no thank you. (putting the complete package over $600 plus taxes with remote)
For the money I spent (and how much ill use this thing) the hero 2 works perfect for me.
