    It's such a long, cylindrical object though, how can you tape/clamp it upright at a right angle and how do you keep it fixed and stationary? I'm guessing placing the stick stop/underneath the headstock, about halfway along the shaft length (oo er!) and then haphazardly yet heavily duct-taping it in place.

    Watch me do this and then find a pre-existing mount is on sale!

    Really good advice, guys. I didn't even search to begin with as there was nothing on the market the last time I checked a couple of years ago.

    Hey man!
    I don't own a Hero 3, but have been working with a variety of DSLR filming, as well as a number "action" type cameras, and have experienced exactly your issue.

    These cams are hungry for light!!!

    This is actually pretty common on these types of cams. They do daytime outdoor environments very well as they have auto ISO and white balance, but indoors with less than optimal lighting, the ISO ramps up very high, hence the excessive noise in the picture....especially at 60fps.
    So providing very good lighting on the subject youre shooting is key.

    So yes...it is shooting in HD, but the picture quality negates the expected results.
    A lot of this lies in the fact that a smaller lens inherently lets in less light than a larger one, and the 3 had not yet employed a cleaner ISO system to copen sate for less optimal lighting....much in the same way phones were prone to horrible low light quality not too long ago really.

    Heres an example....Take my Lumix G4...with the smaller 18-55 F4 Sigma lens I use for gatherings, ...indoors, i often have to use quite a bit of additional lights, or sacrifice picture quality somewhat, and set the ISO at no less than 800 to 1600 to film at a decent brightness at 24 FPS! Swap in my Canon 50 F2 .5 ....even if i set the lens to F4, I can still shoot at 400 and often get a decent result because the front element is much larger. You could try 30 FPS.....this allows more "exposure" time on the sensor, and the ISO should auto adjust accordingly.

    Hopefully this helps you a little.
    Take care man, and Happy New Year to all the Linkers!
