Professional Quality Video and Photos

Photo resolution is 5MP and the HERO3: White Edition can capture burst photos at 3 frames per second. Time-lapse photo capture mode enables automatic photo capture at 0.5, 2, 5, 10, 30 and 60 second intervals.
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 sound is as important as image quality, GoPro engineers completely redesigned the HERO3: White Edition 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.
The HERO3: White Edition features built-in Wi-Fi and is compatible with both the Wi-Fi Remote (not included) and the GoPro App. The Wi-Fi Remote (not included) is a waterproof, wearable remote control that can control up to 50 Wi-Fi-enabled GoPros at a time from a range of 600'. The HERO3: White Edition's built in Wi-Fi means it can also be controlled by iOS or Android smartphones and tablets running the GoPro App*. The GoPro App enables full camera control and live scene preview on any compatible iOS or Android smartphone or tablet.* A software update for your HERO3 camera is required before using the GoPro app. Full app compatibility with the HERO3 will be available WINTER 2012.
