GoPro Hero3 Black Edition

Smaller, lighter and 2X more powerful, again. The Wi-Fi enabled HERO3: Black Edition is the most advanced GoPro, ever. No expense was spared during its development, resulting in a GoPro that is 30% smaller, 25% lighter and 2x more powerful than previous models. Wearable and gear mountable, waterproof to 197' (60m), capable of capturing ultra-wide 1440p 48fps, 1080p 60 fps and 720p 120 fps video and 12MP photos at a rate of 30 photos per second, the HERO3: Black Edition is the world's most versatile camera. Built-in Wi-Fi, GoPro App compatibility and the included Wi-Fi Remote (normally a separate $79.99 accessory) make the HERO3: Black Edition all the more versatile, still.

Smaller, Lighter...Better. Weighing in at a scant 2.6 ounces, the HERO3: Black Edition is 25% lighter and 30% smaller than previous models.

2X Faster Video Performance.The HERO3: Black Edition captures professional, cinema-quality video at 2X the resolution and 2X the frame-rate of previous models while delivering 2X better low light performance. Slow-motion aficionados and industry professionals will love the HERO3: Black Edition's 1080p-60, 720p-120, WVGA-240, 960p-100 and 1440p-48 video modes while those desiring a cinematic look will appreciate the ultra-high resolution 2.7KP-30 fps and 4KP-15 fps (Protune only) video modes.

3X Faster Photo Performance. The HERO3: Black Edition's photo performance is 3X improved, now boasting 12MP burst capture at a staggering 30 frames per second with 2X better low light performance compared to previous models. Still Photo and Time-lapse Photo modes remain the same but are now joined by a new Continuous Photo mode that captures continuous 12MP stills at a steady 3, 5, or 10 photo-per-second rate, up to 30 photos at a time.

Improved Sharpness, Less Distortion. The HERO3's reduced-distortion, 6-element aspherical lens combines with user-selectable Ultra-wide, Medium and Narrow field-of-views to deliver more perspective-capture options than ever before. Add the totally updated flat-lens waterproof housing that delivers stunning image sharpness both above and below water and you've got one of the most powerful and durable image capture solutions on the planet.

Redesigned Audio System. Understanding that sound quality is as important as image quality, GoPro engineers completely redesigned the HERO3 to be as adept at capturing the subtle, natural sounds of voice and music as it is at capturing the immersive sounds of sport. Also improved is GoPro's already famous wind-noise reduction, ensuring that you'll hear more of your passion, be it your engine or expletives, and less of the wind during high speed activities.

Built-in Wi-Fi (Wi-Fi Remote Included) - The HERO3 Black Edition features built-in Wi-Fi and includes GoPro's Wi-Fi Remote accessory. The Wi-Fi Remote is normally available as a $79.99 accessory but is included with the HERO3: Black Edition. The Wi-Fi Remote is waterproof, wearable and can control up to 50 Wi-Fi-enabled GoPros at a time from a range of 600'. The HERO3's built in Wi-Fi means it can also be controlled by iOS smartphones and tablets running the GoPro App*. The GoPro App enables full camera control and live scene preview on any compatible iOS smartphone or tablet. * A software update for your HERO3 camera is required before using the GoPro app.

Rated 5 out of 5 by If your're looking for the perfect action camera, look no further!! I could not be any more happy with this camera!! bought it to use on the bike and to go diving with, but ive ended up liking it a bit more than my bike. When gopro say its the most versatile camera in the world they really dont lie!!! ive crashed ans piled into the floor on it, not a scratch!! and better yet a few days ago i forgot to change the skeleton door and realised my mistake after my camera turned off under water and forced my to return to the surface! i took the battery and SD card out to find water pouring out of the camera. i went home, placed it in a bag of rice on top of the rad for three days and the camera works perfectly. i couldnt believe my eyes! also captures the most amazingly high def videos i could ever wish for!! chuffed!! gopro have hit it smack on the head! 03 January 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Very good Отличная камера. Куча режимов. Заказывал в феврале прошивка уже стояла последняя, как понял более стабильная. Так же сенсорный экран заработал без танцев с бубнами. Видео шикарное. Бывает зависает не в подходящий момент, но в основном работает нормально. Зимой не запотевает как предыдущие версии. Сама себя греет. От частого вскрытия бокса черная защелка треснула на железной оси и отвалилась. Но никто не запрещал паять пластмассу :) 5 минут и как новый, полет нормальный. - Мало площадок в комплекте идет(одна изогнутая и одна плоская). - Для режима Protune нужна быстрая карта памяти, невозможно писать.. тупо выключается запись через 30-40 сек. Карта 10 класса тоже разные. - Аккумулятор садится за час если не быстрее, лучше иметь пару запасных. 13 June 2013
Rated 4 out of 5 by Great camera Well I think it is fantastic the only reason it won't get a 5 star is you only get about an hour of footage from the battery. I will be getting another one to extend the footage even more. When you are out in the mud and covered you don't want to open the housing and let water or mud get in just to change the battery. Also remember the price you see is not what you pay as you only really get 2 sticky pads and you really need to buy a head strap approx. £13, Also if you use bikes around £20 for a bike mount, suction cap around £25 etc etc. So make sure you look into the total costs for what you are wanting it for. 27 May 2013
Rated 4 out of 5 by Impressive! This cam has good video quality, the battery is't that good.. in GoPro Hero 3 cams you need a class 10 card, if you have a slower card it won't work very vell. But over all.. Sick cam! four stars because bad battery life. Battery back pack is a good idea :))) -Mr Nukeproof Norway. 13 May 2013
Rated 4 out of 5 by Do not use a 64gb card with this camera as it won't work properly on the pc, tv or ipad. I changed to a 32gb and all appears to be fine. 06 February 2013
