Professional video + photo quality.

The HERO3: White Edition captures high-quality 1080p30, 960p30 and 720p60 video and 5MP photos at up to 3 frames per second. Time Lapse mode lets you capture a series of photos at 0.5, 1, 2, 5, 10, 30 or 60 second intervals.

Incredible audio.

Sound quality is as important as image quality. The HERO3: White Edition is precision-engineered to capture even the most subtle of sounds—whether you’re recording voices, music or the roar of your engine on a spirited drive. Advanced wind-noise reduction technology keeps the audio clearer during high-speed activities.

Built-in Wi-Fi.

Featuring built-in Wi-Fi, the HERO3: White Edition is compatible with the Wi-Fi Remote (sold separately) and GoPro App. Control up to 50 cameras from distances of up to 600’/180m with the Wi-Fi Remote. Or use the GoPro App to control your camera remotely with a smartphone or tablet—plus preview, play back and share your favorite shots via email, text, Facebook®, Instagram™ and more.1
