There are other brands in the market as contesters, but still lack in some areas (story for another blog). Recently, GoPro took their already great device to a new level.

Their newest edition named the Hero3+ labeled to be smaller, sharper, and more powerful than it’s predecessors.

  • Changed to a new f/2.8 lens, which makes everything sharper than previous models.
  • Added ”SuperView” to re-size videos.
  • Added low-light modes to help you maximize your image quality.

  • Each model has 25% longer-lasting batteries.
  • Black Edition comes with Wi-Fi remote.

  1. Question – The Hero 3 can capture interesting movies very clearly, all right. But HD quality MP4 files are large and WordPress has a limit of 1 gig upload. Also, thinking of our readers’ bandwidth – what is the best way to make a smaller picture size – or put another way – preferred editing software / approach for a Mac ?
