Manufacturer's Description

Capture life’s more extreme moments with the smaller, lighter and sharper GoPro Hero 3+ Action Camcorder.

Small but mighty
The Hero 3+ is 20% smaller and lighter than its predecessor, making it easier to capture thrilling moments.

A wide array of mounting options mean it’s perfect for filming cycling, snowboarding, motorsport track days and anything else traditionally difficult to film from a point of view angle.

From snow capped mountains to rough waters, the Hero 3+ is the most mountable, wearable and versatile GoPro yet.

4k Ultra HD video
Capture and relive the exciting footage in cinema quality 4k resolution and playback the action in dramatic quality with stunning detail.

Like other GoPros this camera will capture Full HD and standard definition too, but if you have an Ultra HD TV to watch it back on, 4k resolution will truly amaze.

The GoPro Black Edition features plenty of high-resolution, high-frame rate filming options: 1440p 48 fps, 1080p 60 fps, 960p 100 fps and 720p 120 fps video modes allow you to capture footage for liquid-smooth slow motion playback.

12-megapixel stills
Shoot a selection of high-quality images to go with your awesome action footage. Powerful photo capture means you can shoot beautifully crisp 12 MP photos at up to 30 fps – so you’ll never miss that fast-paced action moment.

A remarkable Time Lapse function enables automatic photo capture at 0.5, 1, 2, 5, 10, 30 or 60 second intervals – capture the bustling city or a gorgeous sunset in breathtaking form.

You can also hold down the shutter button and continuously fire full-resolution shots at 3, 5 or 10 frames per second.

SuperView
The GoPro Hero 3+ features a new SuperView video mode that shoots those incredible moments in the most immersive wide angle perspective. This fantastic field of view enables you to capture more of yourself and the surroundings, leaving you with a captivating and awe-inspiring video.

More improvements
The GoPro Black Edition boasts an Auto Low Light mode that intelligently changes frame rates based on lighting conditions for an enhanced low-light shooting performance.

A sharper lens and reduction in imaging artefacts has resulted in a 33% increase in image sharpness for a clearer and crisper shooting.

The Hero 3+features completely redesigned audio that captures everything from subtle, natural sounds to voices and music, while GoPro’s wind-noise reduction removes the hiss from outdoor filming and high-speed activities.

Enjoy longer shooting sessions too – this GoPro action cam boasts a 30% increase in battery life from previous models.

Shoot and share
A speedier WiFi connection delivers 4x faster video previewing and faster sharing while the included WiFi remote allows you to control up to 50 cameras from distances of up to 180 m.

The GoPro App makes it easy to operate the Hero 3+. Enjoy full remote control of the functions, see what your camera is shooting, view photos and videos and effortlessly share your favourites with friends and family.

With brilliantly sharp image quality, a tough shell and a seamless control, the GoPro Hero 3+ Action Camcorder is the way to capture that ocean dive, surf expedition, motocross race, skiing holiday or anything the world throws at you.
