The GoPro HERO3 Black Edition camera is an even better, more bad-ass version of the mighty GoPro camera that should be a must-have for any serious outdoor person. The small package hides the big results this camera delivers and the new GoPro HERO3 Black Edition does not hold back any punches. Not only is this version lighter and smaller but it is twice as powerful as the previous version. Click through for more details and a stunning video shot with the new camera.
The new camera is 30% smaller and 25% lighter plus it is wearable or mountable to your gear and waterproof up to 197 feet. The tiny camera can certainly capture great images and video shooting in ultra-wide angle 1440p at 48 frames per second, 60 fps in 1080p and 120 fps in 720p HD video. Want some still shots? The GoPro HERO3 Black Edition snaps off 30 pics per second at 12 megapixels.
For the tech geeks out there and camera aficionados, the GoPro HERO3 Black Edition uses a six-element, aspherical lens combines to create sharper images with less distortion. Audio was also taken into consideration to reduce wind noise and capture more of the action around you — from a subtle noise to the roar of the crowd.
Add on top of the size and performance, the camera is WiFi enabled that includes a WiFi remote to make it even more versatile. Not that any of us are likely to own many of these but the WiFi remote allows you to operate up to 50 GoPro’s within a 600-ft. radius. Plus the ability to use the GoPro app from iOS and Android smartphones and tablets allowing you to have full camera control and live scene preview on any compatible iOS or Android smartphone or tablet.
The GoPro HERO3 Black Edition retails around $399.99 and even comes in a surf edition with surfboard mount.
