    Go with an actual GoPro. They have editing software that you can download with the go pros serial number. A 3+ is a nice camera but it isn't u4k. They can be bought used from eBay. If you plan on a new one buy straight from GoPro.com

    Go GoPro. The black is a great camera - 4k as posted, but I wouldn't start there. The Hero 4 Silver is $100 less, and does the job better then any tv or computer in this house. And to upload to YouTube, just fine. Amazon has great accessories - non GoPro branded, but identical. I have two silvers, and a black, and am very happy with them. I use after market batteries, again from Amazon, much cheaper and longer life. 64gb memory cards are reasonably priced. I have a ton of accessories that I could mount to anything if needed. PM if you want more info.
