Memory card comparison: Hero3 vs. Hero1

I got thinking about this and until I got to mess with my 3 a little more I got a little confused. I have a 32gig Lexar class 10 I use in my Hero1 and get close to 8 hours on it, now I got a Hero3 and using the same gigabyte memory card I get less time using the same setting. The only difference I saw is that the 3 records only in 60 of 120fps while the 1 only had a 30fps mode. Does that 30fps addition really make that much difference that it cuts the record time in half??? I also checked my settings and the Protune is shut off. Anyone.....

The Hero3 Black's sensor

The Hero3 Black's sensor captures MUCH more detail everywhere, even in shadows and highlights. More detail = bigger file size. If you're using Protune, it'll cut down even more space by significantly increasing the bitrate for super high quality.

just to reply.....

As in my first letter, I am not using the protune at all and going from over 8 hours to a smidge over 3 is quite a bit to lose.
