Default GoPro

I have the original go pro and love it, use it quite often...I just don't know if its really worth my money to upgrade it if it still works fine.

Only worth it if you upgrade to the Black edition since the Silver is basically a Hero2 and the White is basically a HD Hero.

By original do you mean the first HD Hero?

If you go for a new GoPro definitely go the Black. The Silver and White and just GoPro HD Hero2's in new casing, so no major recording quality upgrades from the last generation - although it'll still be an upgrade for you since the original Hero's were a decent step below the Hero2.

The Hero3 Black is a different story though - definitely worth a good look since it records at 60fps at 1080p.

Picture quality on the Black is amazing, only downside is short battery life (bout 1 and a half hours on slope recording at 1080 / 60 fps).
