  • It cost an extra $30 to get pre-roll, which is 4 seconds of extra (black and white) video before the event starts recording. This should be standard on any new Ring. This has to be a software update not hardware, so why the extra money? If you need extra money to cover that cost of the software (I doubt it) then increase the Price of the Ring 3 by $10 and include the pre-roll. That and then no 3 Plus and you will make even more money off of the small increase because you will sell more.
