Go Pro Hero 3+ Black Edition

Needs some help I'm thinking of buying one for this summer. I have no experience with these but see the displays for the last few years.

Any advice is appreciated. What to look for and where to buy? So far everyone seems to have the same price?

Also how often do they upgrade? I don't want to buy this one and a new one come out in two months.(like iPhones come out in the fall, when does Go Pro release a new model?)

One thing to consider for use on the boat is the floaty back door for use on the boat. Some on here have not and there are a few gopros at the bottom of a few lakes.

Got mine for Father's Day last year. And had the floaty on it. But first day I knocked it off the chest harness (stupid move on my part) and it sank. So now I use a tether on every mount. I made one myself out of a fishing leader line and there are some commercial ones you can by. I use a tether on every single mount.

They definately are fun toys. Give a different perspective and fun to experiment with.

They are in a pattern of releasing every Oct. lots of people think the 3+ silver is best bang for the buck if you have hesitation on the price of the black

I ended up getting my gopro and some accessories from a fellow TT member, twaibel. He gave me the best price out of all the places I checked. He has previously posted his number, 920-917-9566. Text him and tell him you are a TT member. I have no relationship with him or his company. He gave me a good deal so I thought I would give a fellow TT member a shout out.

Thanks, but I just ordered one earlier today. I'm looking forward to getting some great lake footage this year.
