I've been using a Hero 3 Silver (they were out of the black when I got it at Best Buy). It's great in bright light, but in low light the noise is just too bad. By low light I don't mean dusk, I was trying to shoot a climb that came out of a cave during a cloudy day, and there was no way to get a decent shot.

Is the black model that much better in low light? If not, do you know any relatively small cameras with better sensors? (preferably for under $700)

Yes if you can still return the silver I would. The 2.7K protune mode of the black is actually very good in low light. If you shoot at 24 FPS cinema or even 30 FPS widescreen it will hold its own in low light. I have tried the 4K at 15 FPS mode and it doesn’t do as well as the 2.7K mode.

You need a hefty computer/video card to edit 2.7k video though.

All of the wide angle video after this point in the video below is 2.7K @ 30 FPS. This gym has terrible lighting.
