I've had this camera for roughly over a week and made two serious videos on my motorbike. With no experience on this camera and having not read the manual well, I was surprised by how well it worked. Just mount it, press the shutter button and you're all set.
Despite the lower resolution compared to Hero 3+, the videos were quite well shot and the colours were saturated.
But one thing about GoPros that you need to be aware of are it comes with many mounts and they are not cheap.
So, if you're planning to get this camera factor in a cost of around Rs 2000 for some mounts. You'll need them.
Using the default stick-on mounts on your helmet (that's the only reasonable place you could attach it to, assuming you don't want to have a sticky-mount on your bike) is likely to attract unwanted attention, so you're left without a choice.
Overall great camera.
Flipkart delivered it ahead of the scheduled delivery too.
Best in class

this official link for gopro hero 3 (shop.gopro.com/cameras) quotes its price at $199.99 which comes to be around Rs. 12600 and here at flipkart its price is above 16 grands... i dont understand the reason... @ Rs. 12600 the camera still seems reasonable but at 16k its gross...
