With 1080p30 video and 5-megapixel still recording, the GoPro HERO3 White Edition Action Camera features a versatile design that includes compatibility with a wide range of mounts for use in all sorts of contexts. The Standard Housing is included, featuring a depth rating of 131', plus it helps protect the camera from sand, dust, mud, dirt, and more.

The HERO3 White Edition records internally on microSDHC/SDXC memory cards, with support for capacities up to 64GB. At least Class 4 cards are required for all but one setting, while for the 0.5 second time-lapse mode a Class 10 or faster card is required. There is a mini-USB port to transfer data off the card and charge the battery. The USB port also provides connection for the separately available AV adapter and 3.5mm mic adapter.

Multiple HD Recording Modes

The HERO3 White Edition records in the following:
  • 1920 x 1080 (1080p): At 30 or 25 fps
  • 1280 x 960 (960p): A 4:3 setting recording at 30 or 25 fps
  • 1280 x 720 (720p): At 60, 50, 30, or 25 fps
  • WVGA (848 x 480): At 60, or 50 fps

Shoots 5-Megapixel Still Photos with Burst and Time-Lapse

Not just a video camera, the HERO3 White Edition also takes 5-megapixel JPEG stills in either single shot or a burst of three photos in one second. There is also an interval photo mode that takes a still every 0.5, 1, 2, 5, 10, 30, or 60 seconds. This mode can serve as an automatic way to take photos when the camera is placed out of reach or can be used to create time-lapse videos

Ultra Wide and Medium FOV Settings

The HERO3 White Edition features two field-of-view settings, depending on the resolution. In 1080p mode it uses the Medium FOV setting while in all other video modes it uses the Ultra Wide setting. A third, intermediate setting is used for the 5MP still mode: Wide

Wi-Fi Enabled

Built-in Wi-Fi allows you to control the camera remotely using the separately available Wi-Fi Remote, and enables full camera control plus content preview, playback, and sharing with a smartphone or other mobile device that has the GoPro App installed. The Wi-Fi remote works at a range of up to 600' and is able to control up to 50 cameras at once

Audio Acquisition

The HERO3 White Edition features a built-in microphone designed to capture both subtle and loud sounds, including voices, music, or the roar of an engine. Wind-noise reduction technology is employed to help keep the audio clearer during high-speed activities or when recording in a windy environment. For external microphones or other separate audio there is also a 3.5mm to mini-USB adapter cable available separately

Spot Meter

Ideal for filming within a dark space with the camera pointed towards a brighter setting (such as filming the outdoors from within a car). The auto exposure isolates a small spot in the center of the frame that it uses to determine the exposure setting

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

Optional Accessories

Optional accessories available from GoPro that are compatible with the HERO3 White Edition included:
  • LCD Touch BacPac: A touchscreen LCD that mounts on the back of the camera
  • Battery BacPac: An external battery that attached to the back of the camera for extended battery life
  • Mounts: In addition to the included curved and flat adhesive mounts, there are a range of separately available mounting solutions that can adapt the camera for use in nearly any scenario
  • 3.5mm Microphone Adapter: Allows a standard 3.5mm mini jack microphone to be connected via the mini-USB port

question

I have this camera and love it. it was dropped by mistake and unfortunately the part of the case that attaches to accessories broke off. Is there anyway to replace the outside shell because it is currently unable to attach to anything?
Asked by: Sean
I am afraid there is nothing that can be done by you or B&H in repairing your camera. Please contact GoPro directly for repair or replacement. <a href= http://gopro.com/help target= _blank >gopro.com/help</a>

question

Was trying to find a red filter to fit the Hero. Everything I find says only compatible with the hero4/hero3+. Do they make them to fit the Hero ?
Asked by: Cindy W.
Sorry, no external filters are available for the HERO Action Camera. I was able to come up with two options. 1. Rosco E-Colour+ #779 Bastard Pink (21 x 24 ) Sheet B&H # ROE779S for $34.75. (You will have a lifetime supply.) Cut a piece to size and apply with duck tape. Be sure to leave one edge open allowing water to get in so you do not get water lines. 2. Buy a GoPro that takes filters.

question

How can I use this model with a slefie stick?
Asked by: Seraj B.
Any selfie stick with a 1/4 -20 screw or GoPro style mount will take the camera. Unfortunately, there is no known way to snap the shutter of the Hero Action. You would have to get a more advanced version of GoPro cameras like the Hero Session and use the Smart Remote.

question

Are there led displays on the gopros?
Asked by: Anonymous
There is an LCD display on the front for settings. Normally GoPro's do not have LCD displays on the back for viewing. We do have two kits that offer rear viewing screens. GoPro HERO+ LCD B&H # GOHPL and GoPro HERO4 Black and LCD Touch BacPac Kit B&H # GOH4ABLCDTK (B&H Kit).
