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 HD Hero 3 Silver Edition review

 

A slimmed down HD Hero 2 with Wi-Fi? Yes please. But is there enough in this Silver action-cam to stop us waiting for the flagship Black Edition?

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

It's not the Black Edition

The HD Hero 3 Silver Edition continues to defend its crown as the first choice in action cameras, but expect it to be outclassed by the Black Edition.

GoPro Hero3+ Silver Edition review

 

The best action cam to buy isn't always the most expensive and feature packed, as this GoPro proves

Best value GoPro of the range ; Smooth 1080p footage @60fps ; Wider range of mounts than other brands ; Matchbox design squeezes into small spaces

Screen is ₹8,000 extra ; Main unit is vulnerable when not in waterproof housing ; Tiny buttons, fiddly in use

Not the most user-friendly, but certainly the best value action cam out there

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

Camera works well but...

 

I like the quality of video but you have to really like the wide angle look for everything you shoot. One trick pony and not a replacement for a camcorder.

Just what I was looking for

 

I use the Hero +3 as a 2nd camera for most shoots.

Love the GoPro

 

We had the original GoPro, thought this would be a nice upgrade. Both my husband and I dive, and loved using the original GoPro.

Small package big results

 

Small camera but packs a big punch. Couldn't afford the more expensive 4 hero but this meets all my needs. I like the GoPro App which allows you to sync up your Smartphone to use as a screen to see what you are shooting.
