GoPro HERO3+ Black Edition

 

GoPro's latest upgrade improves image quality and battery life

Improved image quality over original HERO3 ; Improved battery life ; SuperView mode

Relatively expensive ; External microphone requires USB adapter ; LCD screen an optional extra

The housing buttons are also bigger, and the mechanism for securing the rear door shut has been made simpler. There is now no extra button to push to open the catch securing the door, which in theory makes it less secure, and is probably a major reason...

GoPro Hero3+ Black Edition review

 

The king of the action cams returns - but will it still rock our world?

Excellent video quality ; Huge range of mounts ; 4K and slow-mo modes

Lacks a proper screen ; 4K mode only 15fps

Another fine action cam from GoPro that'll please plenty of exteme enthusiasts

GoPro HD Hero3+ Black Edition review

 

Just over a year ago GoPro unveiled the Hero3, a dinky mountable camcorder-like device that - and just like its earlier Hero models - made waves among its users. But as if that wasn't good enough, the company has refreshed the model in the form of the...

An extra squeeze of battery life, small size and trimmed-back waterproof housing, quality results in variety of conditions, crop-in options for different angles of view (up to 1080p only), Wi-Fi enabled, new clip lock preferable

Battery life still not good enough, it's a minor update over the original Hero3 (not worth upgrading but good for first timer buyers), fussy user interface, 4K frame rate too low, touchscreen sold separately

There’s no doubt that the GoPro HD Hero3+ Black Edition is the best GoPro action camera yet. It’s an enabling device, one where you’ll be capturing amazing shots in no time. But it’s a subtle push compared to the earlier Hero3 model, not a giant leap...

GoPro Hero3+ Black Edition review

 

Smaller, lighter, faster, better

Excellent build quality ; High quality footage ; Improved lens quality ; Faster Wi-Fi

No built in preview screen ; Case can be fiddly to use ; Menu takes time to navigate

It might not have the good looks of some of its competitors, but the GoPro is simple to use, offers a huge array of mounting options, most importantly, enables you to capture some incredible footage. The GoPro Hero 3+ is by no means the leap that we...

GoPro Hero3+ review (Black Edition): your action videos never looked so good

 

Although it's more revision than revolution, the Hero3+ maintains GoPro's position at the top of the action cam market.

Even better HD video footage ; More compact ; Expanded recording options

This form factor isn't for everyone ; Certain accessories can be expensive

With three Hero3+ cameras to choose from (Black, Silver and White), price shouldn't be much of an issue. Nor should quality. GoPro's taken a leaf out of Apple's book and released its "best ever" camera, even if it's just an incremental update over the...

GoPro Hero3+ Black Edition

 

GoPro's Hero3+ Black Edition shoots the best 1080p footage we've seen from an action camera.

Best video quality we've seen on an action camera. Versatile shooting modes. Capable of shooting 4K.

Expensive. Battery drains quickly with Wi-Fi enabled. Poor still photo quality. Menu is still frustrating to navigate.

Included is a handy remote that lets you control recording if the camera is mounted on, say, a helmet. The remote also changes modes, and it has large buttons to make it easier to use with gloves. It's a nice extra.

GoPro Hero3+ Black Edition pumps impressive video

 

The incremental update brings better Wi-Fi and battery life, a new lens, and a couple added shooting features, and keeps its predecessor's great video performance.

The ; produces some of the best -- if not the best -- video we've seen from an action cam. Its abundant resolution and frame rate options will satisfy beginners and experienced shooters.

Navigating the on-camera settings menus still isn't the best experience. Battery life can be brief depending on the features you're using. Plan to buy accessories including a microSD card.

Like the Hero3, the GoPro Hero3+ Black Edition's strongest attributes are its excellent video quality and impressive list of shooting options. If that's what matters most to you, this is the action cam to get.
