The GoPro HERO3: Black Edition Camera is smaller and lighter than its predecessor. It's also Wi-Fi enabled. The HERO3 is designed for recording action sports and it comes with a rugged housing that is waterproof down to a depth of 197' (60 m). The camera captures 4K Cinema, 2.7K Cinema, 1440p and Full HD 1920 x 1080p video. It also captures 960p, 720p and 480p video as well. Plus, it supports NTSC and PAL, and it can record up to 240 fps. For still images, the HERO3 supports 5, 7 and 12-megapixel photos.

The HERO3 includes the GoPro Wi-Fi Remote and it's compatible with the optional LCD Touch BacPac and Battery BacPac (both sold separately). The Wi-Fi Remote has a range of up to 600' (180 m). Plus, it's waterproof down to 10' (3 m) and it can control up to 50 cameras at a time. The camera features an ultra wide angle, 6-element aspherical lens, a 12-megapixel low-light image sensor and a microSD card slot that accepts up to 64GB cards. There's a USB 2.0 port, a micro HDMI output and a port for optional accessories including the 3.5mm Stereo Mic Adapter and Composite A/V Adapter (both sold separately).

To ensure you get the best shot possible, the HERO3 is equipped with advanced camera settings including video looping, continuous photo, Protune, manual white balance controls and more. Plus, it supports 12-megapixel burst shooting at 30 fps and time-lapse recording at 0.5, 1, 2, 5, 10, 30 or 60 second intervals. The HERO3 also supports picture in video, which allows you to simultaneously capture video and photos. The camera's battery is a 1050 mAh rechargeable lithium-ion battery.


Please note
: The HERO3: Black Edition is compatible with all GoPro mounting accessories and older generation BacPacs along with the newer generation LCD Touch BacPac and 2nd generation Battery BacPac. However, as all HERO3 cameras have a new size and shape they require HERO3-specific Wrist, Skeleton and 3D housings so be sure to check for HERO3 compatibility when purchasing any new housing accessories.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from BEST small camera out! this is one of the most versatile cameras in my kit when trying to get that shot you just could not before

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Must download upgrades With the red filter, the images were spectacular. However, we found that the camera's would not work right out of the pack. We were on an island with limited internet connection and we were finding that files were becoming corrupted without the upgrades. However, once the upgrades were in place, it worked well. The best version of GoPro to date.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This is an awesome LITTLE camera setup ! This is an awesome little camera and with the waterproof housing makes it so safe to take anywhere.
In the first week it has been SCUBA Diving, Snorkeling, Kayaking, surfing and hiking and hasn't missed a beat.
The slow motion video when shot at 720p at 120fps are amazing to watch.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great camera terrible battery life Great quality camera for its size but with the power within its difficult to get 1.5 hours of footage and changing a battery when you're on the go or set up for a long timelapse is too difficult.
