GoPro need no introductions, at the forefront of miniature camera technology and the number one choice for extreme sports enthusiasts, it just got even better. Say hello to the all new GoPro Hero3.
The GoPro Hero3 is slimmer, sexier, cooler and more action packed than ever before, and for the first time ever it will come in a variety of options to suit all budgets. Coming in at just 20mm thick, it’s 30 per cent smaller and 25 per cent lighter than the current GoPro HERO2 and all models will be fitted with Wi-Fi as standard. Only one option (the Black) will come with a wi-fi remote but it isn’t an essential though, all cameras will work with their inbuilt wi-fi when paired with the new iOS GoPro app for wireless streaming and the like.
All will feature a new sharper lens, enhanced low-light performance and improved sound (which shouldn’t be too hard bearing in mind it is not existent on the HERO2…). Interestingly the Mini SD has been dropped in favour of a Micro SD. We understand why, but thats another expensive if you want to upgrade your old HERO2.
Individual options below:
GoPro Hero3 Black $399.99
The top of the range GoPro Hero3 Black features pretty much every you could want, and more from a mini extreme camera. Bringing professional level video to the average user. Featuring 4K video capture (at a near juddery) 12 frames per second, and a processor boasting double speeds, it will also video 2.7K at 30fps and 1080p at 60fps.
Not only will you get a wi-fi ready GoPro Hero3 Black in the box, you will also get the Wi-Fi remote which will allow you to control up to 60 wi-fi enabled GoPro’s up to a range of 600 feet should you want to take over the world, heavily CCTV your batcave or whatever…
GoPro Hero3 Silver $299.99
The Silver version is pretty much the current HERO2 but in the new GoPro HERO3 body. Featuring 1080p video at 30 frames a second and 11MP stills.
GoPro Hero3 White $199.99
The entry level GoPro Hero3 drops us down again, this time to 5MP stills and the same 1080p video at 30 frames a second.
All in all it’s an impressive line up with the new GoPro Hero3 range, you will also find new accessories such as the new skeleton body, well more of a clamp only for when housing isn’t needed, and I am sure there will be more in the near future.
