I receive a couple of emails each day asking about the GoPro Setup that we currently have running, so here is an update.
I use both a GoPro Hero 3 Black and 3+ Black editions. Both have there firmware updated every time there is a new release.
All of my GoPros are fitted with a GoPro Floaty Backdoor when they are used on my boat or helmet. The OEM floaty backdoors are supplied with a door and float. The door will fit all of the currently available Go Pros (Update: will not fit the recently released GoPro Hero 3+). But I have also been trying out a float that I have attached to one of the doors I already have. This seems to be working well and is half the price. They also all have a leash system fitted as a backup.
I find the WiFi system useful and although I own a GoPro Wifi Remote it is rarely used. I tend to use the iOS app more than anything else but this will only connect with one camera at a time. However I do plan to use the Wifi Remote a little more when I am lining up shots for multiple cameras and setting them “off” at the same time.
All of my cameras also have a GoPro Anti-Fog Inserts fitted. I’ve tried various alternatives but find (reluctantly) that the GoPro ones are the best.
I tend to carry at least one spare battery and have opted for the Wasabi Battery for GoPro 3+ It has a little more umphh than the OEM unit and is cheaper!
The GoPro Caps and Doors has been a great investment. They help protect the lens on both the camera and the case so are well worth the money.
I use a flat mount on the bow of each of my boats and a curved mount on my helmet. It’s useful to have a GoPro grab bag of mounts kicking around.
