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...

Small and compact, Excellent video quality, Sturdy and waterproof case, More affordable than competing cameras

Sticks up awkwardly on helmet, Short battery life

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 HD Hero 3 Silver Edition review

 

Sharp underwater focus, Slicker build, Wi-Fi with remote control, Bigger, less fiddly, buttons

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...

"Works good if you get one that works"

 

I received the Hero3 White edition for a Christmas present. It works without any problems. So, I decided to buy another one. This time, I bought the Hero3 Silver edition to have a higher quality still photos. I got home and downloaded the firmware...

"Fantastic!"

 

A great camera that is well worth the price. Image quality was very good (even 60 feet underwater). The free companion app is very useful; you can adjust all of the camera's settings, take photos with a live preview, etc.

Easy to use

'Port door' is not attached, so it might be easy to lose track of.

Should have red it carefully

 

Good camera. Wish it had more FPS options, and I wish it balanced light better, but I like it.

Great camera. Versatile, lots of accessories. I love the Wasabi power batteries, had some leftover from my last hero (got stolen)

I should have read the title more carefully. I thought I was getting a Hero3+ instead of a Hero3. This was my fault
