What's This?

Since introduction of GoPro cameras, it has been a hit especially among users who wished they could capture activities exactly the way they see and experienced it and GoPro has since continued to innovate and improve on their line up of products.  GoPro Hero 3 is no exception when it comes to jaw dropping performance results it delivers with size 30% smaller, 25% lighter than the Hero 2, offers 4k video capture at 15fps and  to top it off, it is also wi-fi enabled so you can live stream from the device.

Launched at the Redbull Studios in London with the help of Ortis Deley from The Gadget Show, were the Hero 3 Black Edition, the Silver Edition and the White edition.  Watching the video which was completely shot using GoPro Hero 3, I can’t help but feel like shopping for a trip for surfing or at least get myself a new BMX just to capture some awesome clips.  They have made so much improvement to the design like:

  • Flat lens housing
  • More secure locking latch
  • Function button, power/settings button and WiFi button
  • 2 x Faster image processor
  • 2 x Increased Low light performance
  • Now supports Micro SD Cards
  • Improved Sounds
