Default Gopro Hero 3

Well gopro seems to be on verge of announcing the Hero 3. They posted on their FB page about "something new". Did a quick google search and came up with this:

GoPro HD Hero 3? - General Discussion - OpenPilot Forums

First Look: GoPro HD Hero 3 - Half the Size, More than Twice the Power - Features - Vital MTB

I still have my hd hero 1 and still works great, but this seems to have a crapload more features packed in. Don't really need it but figured if someone's in the market for one. And it's looking like the big companies (Sony, Polaroid, etc.) are trying to get it on this action too (no pun intended).

I bet it still looks retarded. It may be the greatest camera in the world, but I still think their form factor is just dumb looking.

I don't care about better vid quality at this point as the Hero 2 is already pretty stinkin good. What I would like is the wifi just so I can have the remote to start/stop, but I can't justify $100

speaking of gopros...anybody have any good telescopic poles that they would recommend?

Dam GoPro! I was so close to buying a Contour+2, but now I'm tempted by the GoPro HD Hero 3's better picture quality.

I totally agree with people saying the form factor on GoPro's is bulky and annoying though. Wish there was a camera with the HD Hero 3's recording capabilities in the Contour form factor.
