GoPro defines the action camera category, and its latest HERO3+ range of cameras fortify its lead in this niche market. The GoPro HERO3+ Black Edition is the newest flagship model that showcases the advanced features that make the brand and camera so endearing to its fans.
The video camera is 20% smaller (3.9 x 3.9 x 9.7 inches and 1.4 pounds) than its predecessors HERO and HERO2. It comes with a lighter housing which is waterproof to 131’/40m, improved image quality and sharpness from its 12MP sensor, improved audio capture, auto low light mode, 4 times faster built in Wi-Fi, Super View mode for wide angle perspective and 30% longer battery life.
The GoPro HERO3+ Black Edition supports video frame rate at 4Kp15, 2.7Kp30, 1440p48, 1080p60, 960p100 and 720p120. It is the only HERO3+ model supporting 4k video capture. It is capable of high 30 fps burst rate for still photo, making it ideal also for sports still shots. The GoPro HERO3+ Black Edition is priced at $399 that comes bundled with a Wi-Fi Remote controller, though more likely you’d interact with the video camera via GoPro app on your iPhone.
