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.
Weighing in at a scant 2.6
ounces, the HERO3: Black Edition is 25% lighter and 30% smaller than
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
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 scene preview on any
