Other options are:
Ion air pro (pro 2 model being released soon)
Replay XD1080 --> I really like this one, seems perfect for boarding and pretty small. Not technically waterproof... I emailed them with some questions and they never responded so I said fuck it.
Here is a list of 10... hero3 black is in the top spot:
Best Action Cameras to buy in 2013 | Geonaute 360-degree action camera | T3
wow dude i really like the Contour ROAM2 and ion speed pro, circular shape really look nice
but hero 3 comes first, i wonder where silver will go in this list, I mean from what I can tell difference isn't that much just 1mp more and lens is different, which makes a difference I know, lens is all about a camera.
i found a gopro silver brand new never opened box, buying it today for 250, that's like 70 in savings
he says it's never opened in box so we will see
