Art_mtl Yeah it takes me just about 2 batteries, without turning off the camera to fill up the card. And wasabi come 2 in a box with wall and car charger.

Agreed on batteries, and the little wall brick charger too. 32gb will do over 2 hours at 1080/60, but it will take 2 or 3 battery packs to get there.

If you are only going to have one battery, then 16gb is large enough.

The 3+ upgrades are not huge. All I would say is get the 3+ if you can afford it. If the 3 price better suits your budget/what you want to spend, it is a great camera, particularly if like you said it wont be super high use.

Well then, that's good to know. Thanks!

Yep, spot on advise above. 32GB is perfect. 64GB is only really needed if you're doing the 60fps of the Black. Even if your on a strict budget a 16GB is actually decent amount, particularly if you're doing a day or weekend type footage (and not filming every single run mind you), does the job. ie the battery will die before you fill the card.
Also make sure you order Micro SD card too, not standard SD card...since you mentioned your new to it all just thought worth adding to the post above. Hero 3 family made the shift to Micro SD, from SD.

But I'm sure my kids will be.

Just wondering what size memory card would work well. I don't need mongo,
I use a 32gb.

Also recommend the Wasabi batteries on ebay/amazon. Get a couple, plus a charger for less than 1 gopro battery
