GoPro Announces Release of Hero3

GoPro, maker of durable cameras for capturing action footage, has today (October 17) announced its new HD HERO3 camera lineup.

At the top of the range is the new HERO3: Black Edition, delivering 4K and 2.7K ultra-definition video resolutions from a camera that is the size of a box of matches.

The most advanced camera ever produced by GoPro, the WiFi-enabled HERO3: Black Edition is 30% smaller, 25% lighter and two times more powerful than previous models.

Wearable and gear mountable, the camera is waterproof to 197' (60m), and can capture ultra-wide 1440p 48fps, 1080p 60fps and 720p 120fps video, along with 12MP photos at a rate of 30 images per second.

It comes with a WiFi Remote, and the unit is compatible with the GoPro app, meaning users can control it with an iOS or Android device.

The HERO3: Silver Edition boasts the same performance specs as the HD HERO2 camera, which it replaces, but comes with built-in WiFi and is 30% smaller and 25% lighter.

Just like the Black Edition, the silver model is wearable and gear-mountable, and waterproof to 60m. It can capture 1080p 30fps and 720p 60fps video, along with 11MP photos at a rate of 10 per second.

Replacing the original HD HERO camera, the HERO3: White Edition has built-in WiFi, a new user interface and is 30% smaller and 25% lighter than the other model.
