heard loads of people saying no fogging problems but then here it looks like a problem?
even read somewhere that 1 guy sent his back as it fogged go pro fixed it and no more fogging issues, was a small leak or something on the seal?
just about to buy one but really hate the fogging. missed so much epic wave footage with my gp2 cause it was foggy and dont want to spend this much if still the same!
so is it just a few fogging issues and most people are happy with non fogging GP3 blacks?
or they all fog and i should keep my hard earned cash and get a new board instead?
I haven't had a significant fogging issues with any of my GoPros.
When I started to see some fogging on my GP2 last year, I started to use the fog strips that GP sells and it went away. The downside of those strips is they break apart and leave a lot of dust inside your case you have to clean out.
Maybe I don't use it as much as you guys, or maybe it is because I keep the case closed when not in use and I also let it acclimate to temperature before I use it. (i.e. I don't take it out of a cold air conditioned house and expect it to fire up with no issues in the tropics.)
But I could just be lucky. I don't doubt there are issues, I'm just saying they have not deterred me from using the camera.

thanks for your input
I have found that the GP3 Black does not have the wifi range to work via remote when kite mounted. Likely the line mount would be fine.
