GoPro Hero3+ – Big things from little(r) packages


With the plethora of POV action cameras on the market these days, it’s hard to keep ahead of the competition.  GoPro, the defacto standard in the industry, has just released their GoPro Hero3+ Black and Silver line of cameras. The new Black Edition is 20% smaller and lighter, has 30% longer battery life, better audio, and has 4X faster built in WiFi  compared with its current Hero3 counterpart. Of course, none of this is any good without good image quality, and the Black Edition now includes a sharper lens, a new Superview immersive wide-angle mode, and auto low-light mode that intelligently adjusts the frame rate during low-light performance.

Along with the cameras, GoPro has also released a whole new range of mounting options.

Pricing starts at $299.99 for the Hero3+ Silver Edition, with the Black Edition (available in a “normal” and surf edition) at $399.99

    From what I see, there has been some nice improvements without a price increase. The extended battery life is foremost. It’s nice to see some vendors (ie: HumbleOutdoors) are still offering free bundle upgrades.
