It comes with two mounts to get you started, but it's also compatible with a variety of mounting accessories for most outdoor adventure and action sports. The HERO3+ camera features an ultra wide angle glass lens, a low-light image sensor and a microSD card slot. There's a built-in mono microphone and a port for optional accessories including the 3.5mm Stereo Mic Adapter and Composite A/V Adapter, which are both sold separately.

To ensure you get the best shot possible, the HERO3+ is equipped with advanced capture settings including Looping Video, Continuous Photo and White Balance. Plus, it supports time-lapse recording. The HERO3+ also works with the improved GoPro Studio 2.0 software, which allows you to easily create professional-quality videos with your GoPro content. The camera's other features include enhanced low-light performance and a rechargeable lithium-ion battery, which lasts 30% longer than the HERO3 battery.

Small & Lightweight

The HERO3+ Silver Edition is 15% smaller and lighter than previous models, making it ultra-mountable, wearable and versatile.

2x More Powerful

With 2x the performance of its predecessor, the HERO3+ Silver Edition captures high-quality 1080p/60 and 720p/120 video. Plus, it offers dramatically improved low-light performance.

Professional Video Quality

High-resolution, high-frame rate 1080p/60, 960p/60 and 720p/120 video modes result in professional quality footage and allow for liquid-smooth slow motion playback.

Powerful Photo Capture

The HERO3+ Silver Edition captures 10MP stills at up to 10 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.

Enhanced Low-Light Performance

Thanks to a vastly upgraded sensor, the HERO3+ Silver Edition delivers remarkable low-light performance and overall enhanced image quality.

Sharper Images with Less Distortion

Enjoy crisper, clearer footage with reduced distortion. The HERO3+ Silver Edition provides increased image sharpness and 3x reduction in imaging artifacts.

Improved Audio

Sound quality is as important as image quality. The HERO3+ Silver 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+ Silver Edition.

Control, View & Share 4x Faster

With 4x faster Wi-Fi connectivity to the GoPro App, you can preview content in near real-time and share your photos and videos quicker than ever. 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 optional Wi-Fi Remote, which enables control of up to 50 cameras from distances of up to 600' (180m).

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.
