GoPro Hero3 Silver Edition Review

 

The GoPro Hero 3's video quality is simply the best among the helmet cameras we tested, and we appreciate its compact design and waterproof case. However, the helmet mount is awkward. More than once, it hit the crossbar on the ski lift. Also, the...

GoPro Hero3 Silver Edition (11MP)

 

Lighter, smaller, sharper The GoPro Hero3 is 25 percent lighter than the previous-generation Hero 2's camera. It's also 30 percent smaller. However, all of that reduction manifests in reduced thickness with a new depth of only 20mm. The height and...

The GoPro Hero3 is smaller, lighter, and features built-in Wi-Fi connectivity. The Black Edition offers a number of ultra-high-resolution capture modes and high frame rates for standard HD resolutions; burst speeds for still photos has been greatly...

GoPro's control scheme has a longer learning curve than the simpler slide-n-go setup of the Contour cameras. Only 15fps on 4K video renders this selling point mostly moot for action videography.

The GoPro Hero3 Silver and White editions are strong contenders in the sports camera market, but the faster, more powerful Black Edition is head and shoulders the best sports camera on the market today.

GoPro Hero3 White Edition

 

Sharp 1080p video quality. Excellent value

Some purple fringing in footage. Narrow field of view in 1080p setting

GoPro's Hero3 White Edition takes over as our favorite action camera in the $200 price range, thanks to its sharp video quality and low price.

It's not the Black Edition

The latest iteration of the leading action camera builds on its already rock-solid reputation. Thinner, lighter and with more features it won’t disappoint seasoned users and will delight first time owners. It’s built for action but is even more refined...

"Great action cam for the enthusiast"

 

The GoPro Hero 3 White edition is a very affordable entry level action camera that is tough as nails and great at recording and capturing fun action shots. For the vacationer, the action sport enthusiast or the average person that wants to capture...

"The Go Pro Hero 3 White edition is a very good camera!"

 

Over all I think the Go Pro Hero 3 White edition is a very good camera for the price and would suggest it to people who want one for fun or even for actual photography!

Good video quality

Not as good as Black Edition

Consumer review by:

"Good camera, but not the best."

 

I got this Hero3 White edition as a Christmas gift. I lucked out, and got one that worked. I have read review in other places where the cameras lock up, and stop working. I have not had this with the White. I did have that problem with the Hero3 Silver...
