An overview of the HERO3: Black Edition - Available end of November!

Smaller, Lighter…Better
Weighing in at a scant 2.6 ounces, the HERO3: Black Edition is 25% lighter and 30% smaller than 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 frames per second (fps), 720p-120 fps, WVGA-240 fps, 960p-100 fps and 1440p-48 fps video modes while those desiring the highest possible resolutions will appreciate the 2.7KP-30 fps and 4KP-15 fps video modes. 4Kp-15 fps video mode also represents a powerful still image capture mode in that it can be used to capture continuous 8MP+ video stills at a rate of 15 frames per second.

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 and 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 £79.99 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′. 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 with support for Android smartphones and tablets coming Winter 2012.
