The GoPro HERO3+ Black Edition with Car Charger and Battery Eliminator is a bundle from B&H that, along with the GoPro HERO3+ Black Edition action camera, provides the connectivity required to power the camera and charge the battery from a car cigarette port or another 12V battery that has a cigarette connector.
The GoPro HERO3+ Black Edition Camera is 20% smaller and lighter than its predecessor, the HERO3. It also features faster built-in Wi-Fi than the HERO3. The HERO3+ is designed for recording a variety of adventure sports and it comes with a rugged housing that is waterproof down to a depth of 131' (40m). The camera captures 4K Cinema, 2.7K Cinema, 1440p and Full HD 1080p video. It can shoot 960p and 720p video as well. The camera supports both NTSC and PAL video systems, and it can record up to 120 frames per second (fps) when shooting in 720p mode. For still images, the HERO3+ supports up to 12MP photos with a burst rate of up to 30 fps.
The HERO3+ includes the GoPro Wi-Fi Remote and it's compatible with the optional LCD Touch BacPac and Battery BacPac (both sold separately). The Wi-Fi Remote has a range of up to 600' (180m). Plus, it's waterproof down to 10' (3m) and it can control up to 50 cameras at a time. The HERO3+ camera features an ultra wide angle glass lens, a low-light image sensor and a microSD card slot that accepts up to 64GB cards. 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, White Balance and Protune mode. Plus, it supports panorama SuperView wide angle photo capture and 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 Auto Low Light mode and a rechargeable lithium-ion battery, which lasts 30% longer than the HERO3 battery.
To extend the range of available powering options, this bundle includes the GoPro Auto Charger with Dual USB Ports, a cigarette lighter to dual USB adapter which not only works with the GoPro but any other device that can be USB powered. In addition, the Switronix GoPro Battery Eliminator with USB is included, and offers an alternative way to connect the GoPro to the Auto Charger or another USB power source and features a 10' integrated cable. The advantage of the Battery Eliminator is that it features a DC coupler that fits securely in the GoPro's battery slot, and cannot be easily yanked out. To use the Battery Eliminator, the Skeleton Housing or Skeleton Back Door must be used so the power cable can pass through. This means the Battery Eliminator is not suitable for applications that require the GoPro to be fully waterproof.
