Default Is Current GOPro Being Replaced

Went to pick up the Go Pro at Best Buy and they only had one that was an open box. Kid at the store said that inventory was gone because they are releasing a new model this month to take the place of the existing HD helmet cam. Anybody else heard that?

I think the GoPro HD is going to have a LCD screen on the back so you can see what your filming. I have a add-on for it. it is nice!

I would hold of on buying a POV cam till later this summer. There is a new brand coming out that is unbeilivable! I had a chance to demo it while i was skiing. It will be released in August/September. I will be running it on my boat all season. Stay tuned!

I've also heard there are some better ones coming out soon. Smaller, lightweight ones with more features & easier to use.

The photo guy said to wait, that he had seen demo units and the next generation will blow you away. He was talking GoPro only I think, but it makes sense if one gets it, they all get it

WTF &%)#H %&FS* %#^g I bought 1 Friday

Just like when in the 80's I payed $1200.00 for my suitcase cell phone and the next month you got the same one at Big Boys with a burger and fries combo meal for free.Then a few years ago when I bought my 10K 50" plasma and 1K DVD burner. Today you get both for free if you buy a cheap 3 piece living room set. My 9 and 10 year old daughters have better electronics than I do and theirs were pennies on the dollar to what I paid.
