Anyway, FYI- I sold out all my positions in GoPro stock when it broke $93 a share and made some really great returns over the summer. It's getting so close to the lockup expiration now, I'm afraid to get back in. The stock is still in the low 80's and based on it's earnings should be no higher than $40. Been a crazy ride. I do hear the new model is selling out at $499 too. I think that is crazy but they have some great marketing and have a cult like following now, often compared to the iphone icon.
What is the center to center IA on your GoPro Housing?
Well, Amazon delivered the Gopro 3D housing setup this afternoon. Here's some preliminary info. The IA is 1 & 5/16ths. This, by the way, is exactly the same as the JVC- TD1. I haven't
got a chance to shoot any test clips yet, but will do so tomorrow. I had a couple of phone conversations with their excellent customer support people. Not in India- very refreshing☺
So, here's the really weird part. Had to talk to Gopro support since I couldn't believe this should be happening. When the cameras are synced with the cable and in the housing, they are both powered on simultaneously with either the wifi remote or the physical power button on the housing. There is only 1 power button on the right of the housing since the right camera is the primary one. HOWEVER, when you push the button, or remote to turn them off, only the right/primary camera shuts off. To turn off the left camera, you have to open the housing, remove the left camera and push the button. When synced with the cable, only the right camera wifi is active also. I told them that a firmware update is badly needed here. This 3D no love red headed stepchild thing just never ends. Ah, but we're a tough lot, used to abuse. Don, congrats on that stock trade. Well done! When the public, with the millions of 3D buyers out there, finds out about this issue, the stock will tank for sure- lol!
