There's been a couple of conversations online elsewhere about the Gopro 3+ having a different lens that favors focus on objects closer than 3ft. The wide shots have been reported as softer. However I haven;t seen first hand whether this is the case or not. I have both cameras and will do a back to back in same conditions to test.

One thing I do know is the 3+ has much better battery life and also the wifi has better range.

I attach my remote on to the bar with zip ties. I have the velcro strap for it but I worry it will come off in a wipeout.

I'll be on the water again in a week so will post the comparison shots.

No case to fog and otherwise as good as the GP3 for 99% of people.

ION Airpro is Streamlined (no stupid plastic casing)
Better value for money
If you want even cheaper: Polaroid XS100 which is the low cost version
