The HERO3: Black Edition:
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. 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 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 the previous models.
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:
The HERO3's 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 separate 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 ft. 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 live scene preview on any compatible iOS smartphone or tablet. Please note, a software update for your HERO3 camera is required before using the GoPro app.
