GPH3forCWAnybody using the (relatively) new GoPro Hero 3 out there?

We’re just about to spring for one and were wondering what fly fisher folks were thinking about the camera.

Battery life seems to be the issue drawing the most jawboning, though obviously folks have been discussing the operating system (much improved it appears after the first post-release firmware update), large file sizes and overheating issues as well.

Overall looks like a nifty piece of gear.

Several of our favorite photographers have updated their sites (or are in progress) or posted some great stuff lately. Here’s a few you shouldn’t miss…

Adam Barker, one of our fav fly fishing / outdoor / mountain / skiing / all around photographers based out of SLC recently published a very good post on his blog – We’re Back. Well worth a read for those thinking I’ll kick the cubicle gig this year and become a professional photographer. And AB’s blog is full of useful tips and advice.

Bryan Gregson has recently updated his site, is cranking out great work as always and blogging a bit. BG is heavily involved in the Utah Access fight ongoing.

Jimmy Chin, arguably the most prolific and talented climbing photographer and videographer in the game today has updated his site recently as well. Not a lot fishy here but the mountain imagery is stunning.

And finally, Zack Williams, friend and champion fly caster has just returned from 5 weeks in Argentina. He’s presenting a slide show of his trip at the Gig Harbor Fly Shop tomorrow morning at 10AM. This was Zack’s second time down and he and Kelly hit some places most anglers don’t see. Well worth a trip in if you’re close by.
