GoPro Hero 3 launched!

A couple of weeks ago we go invited to the official launch for the all new, all singing and all dancing GoPro Hero 3 and it’s amazing… If you’ve ever used earlier incarnations of the device, you’l already be stoked, but the new version absolutely wipes the floor with them.

There are three versions of the camera in various guises, starting at just £199.99 and rising to £359.99, but naturally the one that you’ll want is the most expensive…

White Edition (£199.99)

  • 1080p30 / 960p30 / 720p60fps
  • 5MP / 3 fps Burst
  • Wi-Fi Built-In
  • Wi-Fi Remote + App Compatible
Silver Edition (£279.99)
  • 1080p30 / 960p48 / 720p60fps
  • 11MP / 10 fps Burst
  • Wi-Fi Built-In
  • Wi-Fi Remote + App Compatible
Black Edition £359.99
  • 1080p60 / 720p120 / 1440p48 /4kp15 / 2.7kp30 / WVGA-240fps
  • 12MP / 30 fps Burst
  • Wi-Fi Built-In
  • Wi-Fi Remote Included
  • GoPro App Compatible
  • Pro Low-Light Performance

If you opt for the top end Black model, you can record in 720 HD at 4 x slow motion, shoot 12mp stills at 30 frames per second, control the device with the included wifi remote and get enhanced low light recording into the bargain, something that virtually no other video camera can offer, especially at this price. Even at the low end, you get slow motion at high definition and wifi control via the GoPro app.

Everything is smaller, lighter and built better – check out the picture at the top that shows the old model with attached wifi pack on the left and the new GoPro 3 with built in wifi on the left… It’s amazing what they’ve done. We can’t stress enough how good this camera is!
