They should take their time before releasing the H4.
I would volounteer as a beta product user of the H4

My guess would be after the January 2014 Consumer Electronics Show. And a prediction that they will release a "bare" version (camera only) that will fit the cases and such that H3 users already own.

It would be very interesting to know what percentage of H3 owners are new to GoPro and how many upgraded from earlier versions. I suspect that most are new owners and that has an impact on the H4 launch, because nearly none of the new H4 owners would be very aware of the H3 problems. My H3 was a holiday gift and I guarantee my wife was then, and would be even now, unaware of the issues. It would be unusual for the mainstream new H4 owner to do any meaningful research and be very conversant with the H3 problems. That being said, no way are they gonna miss the 2013 holiday season. They have spent too much marketing $$ (didja see X-Games?) to miss the opportunity. Not many H3 owners would probably upgrade anyway as most do not utilize the camera's more sophisticated options anyway and would not really need the upgrade.

ARGGH buy a hero 3 and now talking about a hero 4 makes me sad

Hero 4 has been discussed since the Hero 3 got released. Don't worry about it. The H3 is so good anyway. I'll probably use the H4 release to get a cheaper H3BE unless the H4 is super special. I don't know what they can do to make it take better video, especially now that the firmware is 99.9% stable now. If you constantly wait around for the release of the next product, you'll miss out on capturing great moments
