Its super sick!..... but.... (not to be a hater) they are putting the technology in the wrong hands Its gonna be the same as the 2, Kids are gonna buy them and still throw some crappy vids together. that will still have terrible quality. The people that I know that shoot with a go pro DO not have any if the neccesary equipment to edit 2.7k!?
I definately think it is a pretty big but unfortunately it is used for the wrong doing.... I'm no professional and I can be blamed for using the gopro with dubstep and getting shaky shots.... and I agree you have to start somewhere but I just dont think they should be exposing these people to unrealistic things.
That would be like making a tricycle with rockets and then still having kids "step up" on to a regular bike. (if that makes sense)
Mayb I just have the wrong idea about it and I should think about the positive effects that profesionals can use it for or what it might bring in development for other cameras (dslrs and similar) but right now I see it as a bad thing :(
