Small & Lightweight
The HERO3+ Black Edition is 20% smaller and lighter than the previous model, making it ultra-mountable, wearable and versatile. It is still possible, however, to use the HERO3+ in HERO3 housings and frames in case you want to use an accessory that specifically requires the HERO3 housing or HERO3 Skeleton Frame.
Professional Video Quality
High-resolution, high-frame rate 1440p48, 1080p60, 960p100 and 720p120 video modes result in professional quality footage and allow for liquid-smooth slow motion playback. Plus, 4Kp15 and 2.7Kp30 enable ultra high-resolution, cinema quality capture.
Powerful Photo Capture
The HERO3+ Black Edition captures 12MP stills at up to 30 frames per second - perfect for fast-action sequences. Time Lapse mode enables automatic photo capture at 0.5, 1, 2, 5, 10, 30 or 60 sec intervals. Continuous Photo shoots full-resolution stills at a steady 3, 5 or 10 fps when holding down the shutter button. You can even record video and capture Time Lapse photos at the same time.
SuperView Video Mode
SuperView Video mode allows you to capture footage with an immersive wide angle perspective. You'll be able to capture more of yourself and your surroundings in the shot, which will result in captivating and engaging footage. SuperView provides full widescreen playback as well. The twp SuperView settings include 1080p SuperView and 720p SuperView.
Auto Low Light Mode
Auto Low Light mode intelligently changes frame rates based on lighting conditions for enhanced low-light performance.
Sharper Images with Less Distortion
Enjoy crisper, clearer footage with reduced distortion. The HERO3+ Black Edition provides a 33% increase in image sharpness thanks to its sharper lens and 2x reduction in imaging artifacts.
Improved Audio
Sound quality is as important as image quality. The HERO3+ Black Edition features upgraded audio performance, capturing even the most subtle of sounds - whether you're recording voices, music, engine noise, etc. Advanced wind-noise reduction technology also keeps the audio clearer during high-speed activities.
30% Longer Battery Life
Featuring a 30% increase in battery life, you can go longer and capture more with the HERO3+ Black Edition.

The GoPro App makes it easy to control your camera remotely with a smartphone or tablet. Plus, you can preview, playback and share your favorite shots via email, text, Facebook, Instagram and more. You'll also be able to enjoy enhanced connectivity to the included Wi-Fi Remote, which enables control of up to 50 cameras from distances of up to 600' (180m).
Protune Mode
Protune is an advanced video mode that yields stunning image quality and cinema-caliber video optimized for professional productions, giving content creators more flexibility and workflow efficiency. Protune allows you to capture images with less compression for professional productions. It also features a neutral color profile that offers more flexibility during post-production color correction. Protune's log curve captures more detail in shadows and highlights. With Protune you'll also be able to record video in cinema-quality at 24 fps, allowing you to easily intercut GoPro content with other source media without the need to perform fps conversion.
White Balance Mode
White Balance mode adjusts video and photo color tones to match different lighting conditions. The settings include: Auto, 3000K for use in warm light (incandescent, sunrise/sunset), 5500K for use in slightly cool light (cool fluorescent, average daylight) and 6500K for use in cool light (overcast conditions).
Spot Meter
Spot Meter is ideal for filming within a dark space with the camera pointed towards a brighter setting, such as filming outdoors from within a car.
Looping Video
Looping Video records a continuous video loop that overwrites itself until you press the shutter button to stop it. It's ideal for saving space on your memory card while waiting to catch a moment of action.
One Button
Upon powering on, the camera automatically begins recording video or capturing Time Lapse photos thanks to the One Button feature.
