Smaller, lighter and 2x more powerful, again.

The Wi-Fi enabled HERO3: Black Edition is the most advanced GoPro, ever. No expense was spared during its development, resulting in a GoPro that is 30% smaller, 25% lighter and 2x more powerful than previous models. Wearable and gear mountable, waterproof to 197'/60m, capable of capturing ultra-wide 1440p48, 1080p60 and 720p120 video and 12MP photos at a rate of 30 photos per second, the HERO3: Black Edition is the world's most versatile camera. Built-in Wi-Fi, compatibility with the GoPro App and an included Wi-Fi Remote make the HERO3: Black Edition all the more versatile, still.

Smaller, lighter, better.

The HERO3: Black Edition is 25% lighter and 30% smaller than previous models—making it more mountable, wearable and versatile than ever.

2x faster video performance

The HERO3: Black Edition captures professional, cinema-quality video at 2x the resolution and 2x the frame-rate of previous models while delivering 2x better low light performance. Slow-motion aficionados and industry professionals will love the 1080p60, 720p120, WVGA240, 960p100 and 1440p48 video modes, while those desiring a cinematic look will appreciate the ultra-high resolution 4KP and 2.7K video modes.

3x faster photo performance

The photo performance of the HERO3: Black Edition is 3x improved, boasting 12MP photos at a staggering 30 frames per second plus 2x better low light performance compared to previous models. Time Lapse mode enables automatic photo capture at 0.5, 1, 2, 5, 10, 30 or 60 second intervals. Continuous Photo shoots full-resolution stills at a steady 3, 5 or 10 frames per second when holding down the shutter button.

Improved sharpness, less distortion

The HERO3's reduced-distortion, 6-element aspherical lens combines with user-selectable Ultra Wide, Medium and Narrow field-of-views to deliver more perspective-capture options than ever before. The totally updated flat-lens waterproof housing delivers stunning image sharpness above and below water, making the HERO3: Black Edition one of the most powerful and durable image-capture solutions on the planet.

Redesigned audio system

Understanding that sound quality is as important as image quality, GoPro engineers completely redesigned the HERO3 to be as adept at capturing the subtle, natural sounds of voice and music as it is at capturing the immersive sounds of sport. Also improved is GoPro's already famous wind-noise reduction, ensuring that you'll hear more of your passion, be it your engine or expletives, and less of the wind during high speed activities.

Built-in Wi-Fi

The HERO3: Black Edition features built-in Wi-Fi to support connectivity to the included Wi-Fi Remote and free GoPro App. Control up to 50 cameras from distances of up to 600’/180m with the Wi-Fi Remote.1 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.2
