GoPro HERO3+ Black Edition
The most advanced GoPro yet.
Gopro’s latest offering is a significant upgrade to it’s predecessor the Hero3.
The biggest change is in the image quality, colour and detail have improved with the new glass lens, fixed at f/2.8 aperture, but the greatest change is in low light. The Auto Low Light mode automatically compensates, when shooting from light to darker regions.
The beautiful packaging contains the camera, the waterproof housing, wi-fi remote and various brackets, mounts, USB and charging cables and the remote.
When they say the Hero3+ is 20% smaller, what they mean is the waterproof housing is smaller, the actual camera is virtually the same size as the previous model.
The Hero3+ features video resolutions up to 4K, 12MP photos up to 30 frames per second, built-in Wi-Fi, SuperView™ and Auto Low Light modes.
The GoPro Hero3+ Black Edition
is smaller and lighter than previous models and is compatible with all existing GoPro mounts and accessories.
Smaller and lighter housing, and waterproof to 131feet (40m).
33% improved image sharpness and reduced distortion.
30% longer battery life.
Faster built in Wi-Fi for enhanced connectivity to the Wi-Fi Remote (included)
and GoPro App.
Super View video mode captures a very impressive wide angle perspective.
Well all of the features listed above.
Especially the battery life, very much improved.
The dynamic range of the camera is great. It captures both light and dark areas extremely well.
What’s not so good:
Some people have said the lens gives very sharp images up close, but leaves the background a bit blurry, but can’t say I’ve found it a problem.
If you want to be picky, some of the menu controls can be a bit confusing.
If you have the Hero3, then it’s probably not worth upgrading, but if you’re a new GoPro buyer, then go for it, you’ll love it.
My rating 8 out of 10.
