    The differences are clearly specified on the GoPro website. The Black is an all-round better camera, if you can afford the extra cost.

    IMO

    One important difference to me was/is with the Black you Can take Video & Stills at the Same Time. (Can't do this with the Silver.) And the resolution of the black is better but 1080 gives excellent videos.

    Since I didn't investigate the difference and I had some Bass Pro Gift cards I'd been sitting on for 9 months, I went to our local BPS. They only had the Silver in stock so I got it. I'm Now trying to justify the Black. :twisted: The guy who hooked me on the Phantom 2 is a fisherman here. After I'd bought the Silver he told me, "Should'a bought the Black and sold the remote on ebay for $65.00" which helps justify the Black.

    Overall I'm satisfied with the Silver but I would Like to take Stills at the same time.

    thanks for the replys.

    yes i looked on the website but id prefer to hear it from customer reviews. tend to get a more accurate and in depth input.

    i mainly want it for shooting videos stills not really my thing upto yet anyhow.

    appreciate the feedback
