Being able to connect via my iPhone is key. You can totally manage the gopro through your phone, over bluetooth. There is about a 3 second delay, but it's key to be able to see what you are recording. The camera is smaller too, which is nice. The video quality has improved too.
Overall a great update.

The beauty of the GoPro HD is that it's very small and High Def (HD). So you can literally take it anywhere and get amazing videos, and the occasional good picture. They have designed the case so that it's water and shock proof. I ski with, I mtn bike with it, I run with it. The only attachment I use is the head mount for skiing. I've tried the head strap and the chestie while running and the video turned out slightly more wobbly than if I had just had it in my hand.
It works best when the sun is out, and is worthless in bad lighting. Photos seem to be even more sensitive to poor light. For pictures there is no view finder, so you simply hold it out, in the direction of what you want to take a photo of. The other huge glaring issue is that because it's so very small there is virtually no room for user a friendly interface, so we're all left to learn (often the hard way) the language of the OS.
So, it's good for actions shots in good light. It's bad for almost everything else.
So far I've tried all the new Montrails this year. I like the Rogue Racer and the Bajadas.. but I LOVE this Rogue Fly. Super light, just protective enough for a long run (I'm running Pocatello 50 in them tomorrow) and even Outside Magazine Pays Homage with BEST shoe of 2012.
