The Camera That Started a Movement
Born from a passion to capture your adventures from your perspective, the completely redesigned HERO3: Editions line of cameras are the most advanced GoPro cameras, ever.
Shockproof and waterproof to 197′ (60m), and proven in heavy surf from Tahiti to Northern California and everywhere in between, GoPro cameras can handle it thanks their highly engineered polycarbonate exoskeletal housing. Ready for action—from scuba diving to dirt track racing, and tough enough to take a spin across the asphalt or launch into space, GoPros are built to take a beating and keep filming. Replacement lens kits and housings are available, so there’s little worry while going for glory—even while diving with sharks.
GoPro mounts enable you to capture a fully immersive experience of your most exciting moments while ensuring your camera is securely attached and with you for the ride. Helmets, poles, boards, vehicles—and even yourself—whatever you’re into, there’s a GoPro camera mount that will help you get the perfect angle and POV ( Point Of View ) for your most epic adventures. The HERO3 comes with a few basic mounts to get you started.
Redesigned Audio System
As you know that the Go Pro 1 and 2 had sound issues, during high speeds the wind sound would over power the sound of some action sports. GoPro Hero 3 had this understanding in mind that sound quality is as important as image quality, GoPro engineers completely redesigned the HERO3: White Edition / Silver / Black Editons, to be as adept at capturing the subtle, natural sounds of voice and music as it is at capturing the immersive sounds of sport. Also improved is GoPro’s already famous wind-noise reduction, ensuring that you’ll hear more of your passion, be it your engine or expletives, and less of the wind during high speed activities.
Improved Sharpness, Less Distortion
The HERO3: White Edition / Silver / Black Editon’s reduced-distortion lens combines with the completely redesigned HERO3 flat-lens waterproof housing to deliver stunning image sharpness both above and below water.
