48FPS ! that works out great for 24, but no mention of 24fps at all, nor 25 for those who need that. Also dig that you can change the angle of view, no more  hacking cameras up to change the lens.

Also look close - the front LCD display has been updated to be vastly more useful then the wonky screen of the original.

If you read closely, there is a WiFi  back also coming. It would be crazy cool to be able to stream video to a nearby laptop or iPad to see what you are getting. that would be insanely good !

Nice work GoPro... now just give us 24fps please !
