GoPro HERO3+ Silver Edition
The Silver Edition won't have the new lens, SuperView, Auto Low Light, or things like 4K @ 15fps or 2.7K @ 30FPS. It will, however, have the new and improved battery, and it can now shoot 1080p @ 60FPS and 720p @ 120FPS.
GoPro HERO3+ Silver Edition: Smaller, 30% Better Battery, Improved Video, 4X Faster
Smaller, lighter, mightier still.
Smaller, lighter, improved video, better battery life. Everything you've wanted improved in the GoPro HERO3 Silver, you'll find in the GoPro HERO3+ Silver Edition. Mountable and waterproof up to 131 feet, record up to 1080p60 and 10mp photos at up to 10fps. With 4X faster WiFi, improved low light recording and 30% longer battery life the HERO3+ Silver Edition is a marked improvement over the earlier Hero3 Silver.
15% Smaller and Lighter
The redesigned HERO3+ Silver Edition case is more compact at 15% smaller and lighter than the previous Silver GoPro camera. Mounting on helmets and gear are now less intrusive than ever. Recording action videos for sharing has never been better.
Twice the Performance Over Previous Silver Edition
With a new video processor, the GoPro HERO3+ Silver Edition can record up to 1080p60 and 720p at 120fps videos and much improved low-light environment recording.
Amazing Video, Advanced Frame Rates.
GoPro's renown video quality made it by far the top action camera. This tradition carries on in the HERO3+ Silver Edition. HD video at 1080p 60fps, 960p/60fps and 720p 120fps frame rates gives you extraordinary pro quality videos and crystal clear slow motion so you don't miss a single action packed moment.
Gorgeous Still Photo Capture
The HERO3+ Silver Edition shoots stunning 10MP still photos at up to 10 fps so you never miss that rare fraction of a second moment. The HERO3+ Silver lets you shoot a myriad of different time lapse videos with the time lapse mode offering you 0.5, 1, 2, 5, 10, 30 or 60 second interval recording.
Enhanced low-light performance
Thanks to a vastly upgraded sensor, the HERO3+ Silver Edition delivers remarkable low-light performance and overall enhanced image quality.
Improved Sharpness With Reduced Distortion
A new sharper lens offers you noticeable video sharpness and reduced image distortion. The HERO3+ Silver Edition now gives you a 3x reduction in image artifacts.
Improved Sound to Match Improved Video
Quality sound and video go hand in hand. GoPro has upgraded the audio performance in the HERO3+ Silver Edition so that soft sounds and vocals come through as well as the roar of an engine or pounding of waves. A new wind noise reduction system lets you hear what's going on even when the camera is moving at a quick clip.
More Battery Life, More Better
A redesigned, longer lasting battery boosts the recording time by 30%. Longer recording time is something previous GoPro Silver users have asked for and GoPro listened. Now you can capture more amazing footage longer with the HERO3+ Silver Edition.
Control and Share Faster, 4X Faster
The new Wi-Fi chip inside the GoPro HERO3+ Silver Edition boosts the connectivity 4X faster. With the GoPro app you can control your camera's settings through your smartphone or tablet. You can also preview your video, play it back and share your favorite clips or photos via email, SMS, Facebook, Instagram and more.
Your smartphone GoPro App now works 4X faster previewing video in almost real time. Share your pics and videos faster too.
The 4X faster speed carries over to the Gopro Wi-Fi Remote (sold separately) which allows you to control of up to 50 cameras from up to 600 feet away.
