SAN MATEO, CALIF. (Jan. 22, 2014)- GoPro, maker of the world’s most versatile camera and enabler of some of today’s most engaging user-generated content, announces the release of HERO3+®Black Edition/Music, a musician-focused version of it’s best selling HERO3+Black Edition camera. HERO3+Black Edition/Music includeseverything needed to capture professional quality photos and video of any music moment, from practice to performance. Debuting at The NAMM Show (Hall D #2484), HERO3+ Black Edition/Music makes it easy for musicians and DJs to mount the camera to instruments, turntables, mic stands and other stage equipment to capture immersive GoPro-style footage and unique points of view. Artists can also use the GoPro App on a mobile device to control the camera if it’s mounted out of reach, while GoPro’s free editing software, GoPro Studio, makes it easy to edit professional looking videos for self-promotion on YouTube™, Facebook®, Instagram™ and other platforms.

“This is a natural step for us, as music has been a huge part of GoPro for years,” said GoPro CEO and Founder, Nick Woodman. “From the inspiring soundtracks we feature in our videos to the immersive performances we’ve seen captured with our cameras, music is a big part of our inspiration here at GoPro and we’re fired up to help musicians of all levels capture and share their passion with the world.”

HERO3+ Black Edition/Music (MSRP $399.99) will be available this spring at retailers worldwide, including Guitar Center, Sam Ash and Sweetwater in the U.S. and Long & McQuade in Canada.

Instead of the waterhousing that is traditionally bundled with all GoPro cameras, the HERO3+ Black Edition/Music comes with The Frame, GoPro’s sleekest, lowest-profile camera mounting solution and the smallest, lightest way to mount a HERO3+ camera when waterproof protection isn’t required. The Frame provides easy access to all ports and full exposure to the camera’s microphone, delivering a superior audio recording performance. Along with The Frame, other new accessories packaged in HERO3+ Black Edition/Music include:

  • Removable Instrument Mount: Aneasy-to-remove, non-damaging adhesive mount that makes it easy to mount the camera to guitars, drums, turntables, keyboards and other instruments.
  • Mic Stand Mount: Convenient mount for attaching the camera to a mic stand. Compatible with standard U.S. 5/8”-27 mic stands. Includes an adapter for European 3/8”-16 mic stands.
  • Jaws: Flex Clamp: Opposable flexclamp that simplifies mounting the camera to cymbal stands, drum hardware, turntables and more. The opposable and removable neck delivers a wide range of camera-angle adjustability, and can be attached to the other included mounts for increased versatility.
