    Details

    Free Shipping in AustraliaThe HERO3: Black Edition is the pinnacle of sports action cameras. No expenses were spared nor shortcuts taken when developing this technological masterpiece. Coming in at 30% smaller, 25% lighter at around 75g and 2X more powerful than previous models, GoPro have been working hard to bring you the new benchmark. Wearable and mountable, 60m waterproof and able to shoot in ultrawide 1440p 48fps, 1080p 60fps and 720p 120fps video and 12MP still shots up to 30 photos per second, the Hero 3: Black Edition bears amazing credentials. The world of new possibilities is opened through integrated Wi-Fi, connecting the user to the GoPro app on Apple and Android as well as GoPro’s own Wi-Fi remote, allowing live streaming and wireless control.

    2X Better Video Performance
    Capture professional, cinema-quality video at 2X the resolution and 2X the frame-rate of previous models while delivering 2X better low light performance. Slow-motion enthusiasts and industry specialists will love the HERO3: Black Edition’s 1080p-60, 720p-120, WVGA-240, 960p-100 and 1440p-48 video modes while those desiring a cinematic look will appreciate the ultra-high resolution 2.7kp-24 and 4kp-12 (Protune only) video modes.

    3X Faster Photo Performance
    3X better, now capable of 12MP burst capture at a amazing 30fps with 2X improved low light performance in comparison to preceding models. Still Photo and Time-lapse Photo modes remain the same but are now joined by a new Continuous Photo mode that captures continuous 12MP stills at a steady 3, 5, or 10 photo-per-second rate, up to 30 photos at a time.

    Improved Sharpness, Less Distortion
    The sharply refined reduced-distortion, 6-element aspherical lens combines with user-selectable Ultra-wide, Medium and Narrow field-of-views to bring about more perspective-capture choices than ever before. Don’t forget the totally updated flat-lens waterproof housing that provides spectacular image clarity both above and below water and you’ve got in your hands one of the most sophisticated and technologically advanced image capture devices on the market.

    Redesigned Audio System
    As video comprises of both visual and audio aspects, GoPro recognised the need for new and improved sound recording technology to harness the subtle, natural sounds of voice and music as well as capturing the immersive sounds of sport. As for wind interference, GoPro’s already famous wind reduction technology has received an upgrade too.

    Built-in Wi-Fi (Wi-Fi Remote Included)
    The HERO3 Black Edition features built-in Wi-Fi and includes GoPro’s Wi-Fi Remote accessory. The Wi-Fi Remote is normally available as a $79.99 accessory but is included with the HERO3: Black Edition. The Wi-Fi Remote is waterproof, wearable and is caable of controlling up to 50 Wi-Fi-enabled GoPros at a time from a range of 180m. The HERO3′s built in Wi-Fi means it can also be controlled by iOS or Android smartphones and tablets running the GoPro App. The GoPro App enables full camera control and live scene preview on any compatible iOS or Android smartphone or tablet.

    The HERO3: Black Edition is compatible with all GoPro mounting accessories and older generation BacPacs™ along with the newer generation LCD Touch BacPac and 2nd generation Battery BacPac. However, as all HERO3 cameras have a new size and shape they require HERO3-specific Wrist, Skeleton and 3D housings so be sure to check for HERO3 compatibility when purchasing any new housing accessories.

    Best price or good service?
    Techrific have it listed for $352, but I don't trust them, they've had a few warranty problems. I think they've sorted it now and offer free delivery and returns, but still don't know about buying from them.

    where as Pushys I keep hearing good things about and they're the cheapest other than Techrific, so I'd rather go with a good company and spend a bit more rather than wasting half a week chasing up any problems.

    Yeah they are impressive, a friend of mine got the Black after the Silvers kept stuffing up.

    Also with Contour going bust the GoPro should get an even greater market share.

    Oooh I'd get it from JB if you had a choice, there have been a few failures in the 3 that I know of friends didn't seem to have any dramas with the Hero's.
