Smaller & Lighter
The HERO3+ Black Edition has shrunk by 20% and is lighter than previous GoPro cameras making it even less cumbersome and weightless when wearing on helmets or personal gear. However, it retains complete backward compatibility to previous mounts and accessories so if you're upgrading from an earlier GoPro, your investment is still sound.
Best Video Ever
What made the GoPro cameras the de facto standard for action video was it's renown video quality and recording options. The GoPro HERO3+ Black Edition carries on the tradition of stunning video and versatile frame rates and resolutions.
Professional HD quality video footage and liquid-smooth slow motion playback is what you get at these high frame rates. If cinema quality capture at ultra high resolutions is your thing, the GoPro HERO3+ Black Edition's 4Kp15 and 2.7Kp30 should satisfy your need for super detail.
HD resolution multiple frame rates include:
An Extraordinary Still Image Camera
The HERO3+ Black Edition has still photo capture features that beat full frame DSLR's costing thousands of dollars. Stunningly crisp, 12MP stills at up to 30 frames per second! Never miss those high speed perfect moments again. Advanced time lapse recording modes enable interval recording at 0.5, 1, 2, 5, 10, 30 or 60 second rates.
Hold down the shutter button to get continuous still photo shoots in full resolution at 3, 5 or 10 frames per second.
SuperView™ - Extra Wide, Pulls You Into The Picture
The GoPro HERO 3+ Black Edition introduces SuperView, a unique video mode that captures wide angle yet still captures more of the environment in the frame resulting in an immersive, exciting "in your face" video.
Self Adjusting For Low Light - Auto Low Light Mode
Auto Low Light mode automatically adjusts for low light recording scenes. It does this by changing frame rates based on lighting conditions. This mode automatically slows the frame rate to capture more light during low illumination situations.
33% Sharper Images
Get even sharper and clearer video with less distortion than the previous GoPro HERO 3 Black. A new sharper lens and 2x reduction in image artifacts gives you awe inspiring footage.
Audio With More Punch
The HERO3+ Black Edition improves sound quality over previous GoPro cameras with a new advanced wind-noise reduction system. Better voice recording and overall improved audio performance captures more of everything from nuanced music to thrilling sports sounds of roaring engines or smashing waves.
Yes! 30% More Battery Life, Record Longer
While the GoPro HERO 3 was much love, some users did wish it could record longer on a single standard battery. GoPro listened. With the GoPro HERO3+ cameras, they boosted the mAh from 1050mAh in the HERO 3 to 1180mAh in the HERO3+ along with software adjustments. The new, more powerful battery boosts recording by an extra 30%. You can now record longer in a smaller GoPro cam.
4X Faster Wi-Fi
A new WiFi chip inside the GoPro HERO3+ Black boasts faster speed for all wireless communication. Interactions with the GoPro smartphone App such as controlling camera functions, previewing video and sharing photos and videos via email, sms, Facebook or Instagram are all faster.
The included GoPro Wi-Fi Remote allows you to control up to 50 cameras from distances of up to 600’/180m. Now do it 4X faster.
