There are a few products I get excited about and the GoPro is definitely one of them. It seems like yesterday when they blew us away with the HEREO2 and now they’ve just announced the HERO3.

Why do I love to GoPros so much? Because their promotional videos make me think I can do the same thing, when in reality all I can cut together on a road bike is this (shot on the HERO1). They sure have come a long way in three years…

Now in white, silver or black to differentiate the different models and features (find out more here):
