Small, lightweight design.

Weighing just 2.6 ounces, the tiny HERO3+ Black Edition camera ensures it’s your performance, not its presence, that holds your audience’s attention. Its small size makes it ideal for mounting to instruments and low-profile capture onstage.


Professional video quality.

Stunning video quality has made GoPro the world’s best-selling camera company, and the HERO3+ Black Edition continues this tradition. High-resolution, high-frame rate 1440p48, 1080p60, 960p100 and 720p120 video modes result in gorgeous footage optimized for professional productions. 4K15 and 2.7K30 modes enable ultra high-resolution, cinema quality capture.


Brilliant performance in low light.

Capture gorgeous video even in dimly-lit settings. The HERO3+ Black Edition features a new Auto Low Light mode that intelligently adjusts frame rates based on lighting conditions for enhanced low-light performance. So whether you’re at a late-night festival or jamming in your garage, you’ll walk away with crisp, clear footage of your performance.


Ultra wide angle lens.

Fit the whole band in the frame thanks to the HERO3+ Black Edition’s ultra wide angle lens. It’s great for capturing large groups in small spaces—like a cramped rehearsal room or crowded club—and delivers an expansive field of view for dynamic, engaging footage.


Powerful photo capture.

A variety of photo options enable you to capture high-quality 12MP stills for all your production needs—from creating album art, to documenting life on tour. For fast-action shots, like drum solos and fancy fretwork, capture up to 30 frames per second so you never miss a moment. Or set the camera to Time Lapse mode to capture photos automatically while you play.


Flexible audio capture.

Record audio with the built-in microphone, or attach an external microphone (sold separately) using the included 3.5mm stereo mic adapter.


Introducing SuperView.

Only the HERO3+ Black Edition features SuperView™, a GoPro-exclusive video mode that captures the world’s most immersive wide angle perspective. It’s great for instrument-mounted shots, and allows you to get more of yourself and your gear in the frame. Plus, SuperView makes for gorgeous wide-screen playback on your computer or TV.

With speedy built-in Wi-Fi, you can control up to 50 cameras remotely from distances of up to 600’ (180m) using the Wi-Fi Remote (sold separately)—the perfect solution for operating multiple cameras mounted to instruments and equipment onstage. Or use the GoPro App for full remote control of all camera functions plus content preview, playback and sharing.1


Extended battery life.

With 30% longer battery life compared to previous models, the HERO3+ Black Edition makes it possible to capture the entire set, including the encore, on a single charge.


Wireless camera updates.

Conveniently update your camera on the go using your smartphone or tablet2 and the GoPro App. You’ll get the newest features and best performance from your GoPro by keeping it up to date with the latest software.

SuperView Settings
SuperView Mode Video Resolution
1080 SuperView 1920 x 1080

Protune™

Advanced video mode that yields stunning image quality and cinema-caliber video optimized for professional productions, giving content creators more flexibility and workflow efficiency.

  • Captures images with less compression, giving content creators higher quality for professional productions.
  • Protune enables manual control of White Balance, Color, ISO Limit, Sharpness and Exposure for advanced control and customization of your video footage.
  • Records video in cinema-quality 24 fps, allowing you to easily intercut GoPro content with other source media without the need to perform fps conversion.

White Balance:

White Balance adjusts the overall color tone of videos.

White Balance Setting Recommended Lighting Conditions
3000K (Default) Warm Light (incandescent or sunrise/sunset lighting)
5500K Slightly cool light (cool fluorescent, average daylight)
6500K Cool light (overcast conditions)
Cam RAW Industry standardized optimized color

Color

Color allows you to adjust the color profile of your video footage. There are two Color options: GoPro Color (default) and Flat. GoPro Color delivers the same great color you get when Protune is turned OFF. Flat results in a neutral color profile that can be color-corrected to better match footage captured with other equipment, offering more flexibility in post-production.

Color Setting Resulting Color Profile
GoPro Color (Default) GoPro color-corrected profile
Flat Flat, neutral color profile

ISO Limit

ISO Limit adjusts the camera’s sensitivity in low-light environments, and creates a balance between brightness and resulting image noise. A higher ISO Limit will result in brighter footage, but you may experience more noise. A lower ISO Limit will result in darker footage, but will deliver reduced noise.

ISO Limit Setting Resulting Video Quality
6400 (Default) Brighter video in low light, increased image noise
1600 Moderately bright video in low light, moderate image noise
400 Darker video in low light, reduced image noise

Sharpness

Sharpness controls the sharpness of your video footage. There are three Sharpness options: Low, Medium and High.

Sharpness Setting Resulting Video Quality
High (Default) Ultra-sharp video
Medium Moderately sharp video
Low Softer video that allows for more flexibility in post-production

Looping Video

Records a continuous video loop that overwrites itself until you press the shutter button to stop it. It's ideal for saving space on your memory card while waiting to catch a moment of action.

Exposure

Exposure compensation affects the brightness of your video. Adjusting Exposure can improve image quality when shooting in environments with contrasting lighting conditions.
