    The GoPro Thread

    G'day guys.

    Well Santa was kind and I scored a GoPro HERO3 Silver. Niiice!!

    It seems that there are a few of us that have this great bit of kit and I think we need a thread for them.

    Let's chat GoPro!

    What do you like, any little tricks to help me with my toy?

    Any decent links to eBay adds?

    Anyone want to do a group buy of stuff out of USA and save some postage-???

    Cheers MR

    Would be interested in seeing any short movies that you guys have shot on your GoPros?? Maybe we need a GoPro Footage thread too?

    This is going to be great!

    The only good thing about an 80 series is..... the front end?? Wrong!!, the Engine?? Wrong!! the Full Time 4WD system?? Wrong!! Its the NissanPatrol.com.au stubby holder fitted over the transfer lever.

    Daz use your iPhone as a remote for the camera, download the gopro app and go from there. Read the instructions on the gopro booklet thing though because its a pain to set up

    A mate was saying the App is good but you have to set the thing up every time you use it and if you shut the App down or time out you have to go through the pair setup again.

    He also said he liked the remote in the car and mounted it to the middle of the steering wheel for easy access. Still thinking of grabbing it.

    I like the App instead of the LCD rear screen though? What are your thoughts on that?

    That's not true mine fires up straight away every time. Yeah having the LCD screen seems like a big waste of battery to me. There is about a 3 second delay to the app but really it's no big deal if its just using it to frame a picture or something.

    I used mine couple weeks ago out wheeling, got a mount on my bull bar next to the winch that the camera clicks into. Got some good footage of some hill climbs and decents . Also mount it to the quad bike too. I have an android app so what i do is mount my phone on my dash and can view what the camera sees. Very techy way to 4x4!

    Awesome. He has a Hero2 and maybe a little different as that needs a Wifi dongle to operate.

    The remote is ok the app is good however when you have them on you need wifi on and that means alot less filming time as batt runs flat quicker
