"Decent camera for sunny outdoors and no need for sound"2.0 starson by tofurr
Pros: Light, cheap-ish, just works...usually. Armored case is well made.
Cons: EXTREMELY poor low light performance with the white edition, far worse than the admirable job the Hero 2 did. Electrical noise using internal microphone. Proprietary external mic adapter.
Summary: I bought this camera after borrowing a friends Hero 2, which which I was HUGELY impressed, thinking that the Hero 3 would be better. I was greatly disappointed, and returned two in a row thinking there must be something wrong with the camera. Now on my third camera (from a different store), it turns out that the white edition is just crap.
1. Horrible low light performace: In bright sun, between 6 inches and 5 feet, it's crystal clear and beautiful. Beyond that, it starts getting fuzzy. In a normally lit room indoors, forget it; its blurry and grainy at all resolutions.
2. While using the built in microphone, if you have the wireless enabled, there's a constant low ticking noise. Using an external microphone seems to lessen the effect.
3. The GoPro app frequently refuses to connect, requiring that you restart the wifi on the camera, but....
4. The wifi will not turn off. No combination of button pressing will make the wifi turn off consistently. Instead, I have to pull the battery out to restart it.
