    Boke down and bought the GoPro Hero 3 Silver yesterday. Bought the roll bar mount and got it installed on the tower. Can't wait to get out and really try it.

    Did they change the fisheye lens on the 3?

    I bought the Hero2 last year and was dissapointed with the fisheye lens. Had it on the tower first, then moved it to the rear grab bar.

    I am looking to get another video recorder, maybe one of the new waterproof JVCs, but may just get a regular (non-waterproof) recorder with a good lens for the tower and use the Hero2 mounted directly to the boards or the kid's helmets.

    Yes, it still looks like the fish eye lens, IMO. I will just have to see how it does. I definitely like it waterproof.

    I hope to use it soon but this weekend is going to be in the 40's. I am hoping to be able to wetsuit out this month and then try it. I want to use it for looking at my turns skiing and boarding.

    The fish eye lense on the 3 is not as drastic as the 2 so the 3 has much less distortion

    I have heard of this happening with the Black edition. My Silver has not frozen yet.

    I just really haven't gotten to use it much yet. What I have videoed so far looks pretty good to me, I have the silver also so hope it wont freeze up. I know I am going to freeze up when I get in that water here shortly.
