SMALLER, LIGHTER, MORE POWERFUL, AND WI-FI ENABLED
IT’S THE GOPRO HERO3:
BLACK EDITION

You usually only get one chance to catch the perfect wave or race down the course in record time – and you want to be sure you captured it without fail. Thankfully, the GoPro HERO3: Black Edition is tough enough to come along for the ride.

The GoPro HERO3: Black Edition is the most advanced GoPro camera ever. It’s smaller, lighter, and offers twice the video performance of any GoPro before it. Just about everything has been improved – it delivers enhanced sharpness with less distortion in your footage, and captures audio with better wind-noise reduction for high-speed sports. You can also snap 12MP burst shots at 30 frames per second with improved low-light performance.

Built-in Wi-Fi gives you the freedom to control this action camera with the included GoPro Wi-Fi Remote accessory. Plus, Wi-Fi and a downloadable GoPro App give you total control with your iPhone, Android smartphone, iPod touch, or iPad.

The GoPro HERO3: Black Edition is surprisingly small and yet...

TWICE AS FAST, TWICE AS POWERFUL
FOR BETTER VIDEOS AND PHOTOS

Life doesn’t slow down so your camera can keep up. That’s why the GoPro HERO3: Black Edition’s image processor has been engineered to perform faster than ever, so you’ll never miss a thing.

This HERO3 has the power to record professional-style footage with twice the resolution and twice the frame-rate of its predecessors. Even in low light, you’ll capture all the action with perfect clarity the second that it happens. Mud will look muddier, stunts will come through clearer, details will pop with vibrant colours, and all your footage will look so realistic, even those who weren’t there to witness it will wince at every hard-hitting spill.

Photo performance is faster too. It’s 3x improved so you can snap stunning 12MP burst shots at a staggering 30 frames per second. There’s also a new Continuous Photo mode that captures stills at a 3, 5, or 10 photo-per-second rate.

GO WIRELESS WITH WI-FI
AND THE INCLUDED REMOTE CONTROL

With built-in Wi-Fi, you’ll have the freedom to control your GoPro HERO3 – and 49 others – from up to 180 metres away using the included Wi-Fi Remote. So go ahead: mount it anywhere and you’ll be to control every shot.

Small enough to fit in the palm of your hand, the wearable Wi-Fi remote accessory lets you control your HERO3 camera with ease. It features a screen that displays on/off, camera settings and buttons to give you full control. It’s also waterproof down to 3 metres deep.

Wi-Fi also lets you control the GoPro HERO3 with your Android smartphone, iPhone, iPod touch, or iPad. Just download the GoPro App and you’ll get a live scene preview that mirrors what your camera sees so you will always be able to get that perfect shot. It also allows for simple camera setting adjustments right on your phone.

WEARABLE, MOUNTABLE
BASICALLY INDESTRUCTIBLE

Whether you wear it on your body, mount it to your handlebars, or strap it securely into its waterproof housing, the GoPro HERO3 was built to go just about anywhere.

The HERO3: Black Edition comes ready for adventure right out of the box. The waterproof housing offers a tight fit for your camera so you can dive as deep as 60 metres and capture a whole new world of underwater adventures. It also comes with assorted mounts and accessories so you can attach it to your helmet, gear and more.

It’s also compatible with all GoPro mounting accessories, so you can take your camera to new heights. There are USB and microHDMI ports so you can connect to your peripherals, as well as a port for optional accessories such as a 3.5mm stereo mic adapter or composite AV adapter. Pop in a microSD card and store all the action.
