I was fortunate enough to be able to attend the GoPro HERO3 launch event on Tuesday, October 16. I went out to San Francisco to represent Studio Daily and write up my experiences on their blog. On Friday I posted a piece all about the event and the fun we had testing the camera at Sonoma Raceway so if you haven’t seen it and are interested in this important update to the popular GoPro camera line then give it a read. My PVC colleague Jeff Foster was also at the event and he’s posted his own thoughts on the event and the new camera as well.

Here’s a couple of video comparisons between the Protune footage and a color graded version of the same footage.

This was a ride on the back of a MotoGP-style sport bike. I think it’s obvious which was color corrected:

This was a ride in a 2-seat race car from the racing school at Sonoma Raceway:

This footage was shot at the HERO3’s 2.7K resolution. In Google Chrome I’m able to choose the original 2K resolution from the YouTube quality menu. If you’ve got the right monitor and bandwidth give it a try:

Scott Simmons

Scott Simmons was born in rural West Tennessee and didn’t really realize that movies and tv had to be made by actual people until he went to college. After getting degrees in both Television Production and Graphic Design he was in one of the early graduating classes at the Watkins Film School in Nashville, Tennessee. During that time at Watkins he discovered editing. While most of his classmates in film school wanted to be directors, Scott saw real career opportunities in post production and took a job as an assistant editor after completing film school. In 1999, Scott took the leap into freelancing and in 2007 accepted a position as an editor at Filmworkers – Nashville. In 2005 Scott created The Editblog a website dedicated to all things editing and post-production which is now housed here at PVC. Someday he hopes to edit on a beach with a touch screen device, a wireless hard drive and a Red Stripe.
