GoPro Hero3+ review (Black Edition): your action videos never looked so good

 

Got an adventurous spirit? A love of video? If either of those apply to you, then you're likely well-familiar with GoPro. Heck, if you nodded "yes" to

Even better HD video footage ; More compact ; Expanded recording options

This form factor isn't for everyone ; Certain accessories can be expensive

Although it's more revision than revolution, the Hero3+ maintains GoPro's position at the top of the action cam market.

GoPro Hero3+ Black Edition

 

Best video quality we've seen on an action camera. Versatile shooting modes. Capable of shooting 4K

Expensive. Battery drains quickly with Wi-Fi enabled. Poor still photo quality. Menu is still frustrating to navigate

GoPro's Hero3+ Black Edition shoots the best 1080p footage we've seen on an action camera.

GoPro Hero 3+ Black

 

The GoPro Hero 3+ Black is the best action cam on the market. See why in our review.

It has unmatched image quality for an action camcorder, and there are tons of available accessories

Menu navigation is frustrating unless you use the smartphone app

The GoPro Hero3+ Black is the best action camcorder available.

GoPro HD Hero3+ Black Edition review

 

Just over a year ago GoPro unveiled the Hero3, a dinky mountable camcorder-like device that - and just like its earlier Hero models - made waves among its users. But as if that wasn't good enough, the company has refreshed the model in the form of the...

An extra squeeze of battery life, small size and trimmed-back waterproof housing, quality results in variety of conditions, crop-in options for different angles of view (up to 1080p only), Wi-Fi enabled, new clip lock preferable

Battery life still not good enough, it's a minor update over the original Hero3 (not worth upgrading but good for first timer buyers), fussy user interface, 4K frame rate too low, touchscreen sold separately

There’s no doubt that the GoPro HD Hero3+ Black Edition is the best GoPro action camera yet. It’s an enabling device, one where you’ll be capturing amazing shots in no time. But it’s a subtle push compared to the earlier Hero3 model, not a giant leap...

GoPro Hero3+ Black Edition review

 

The king of the action cams returns - but will it still rock our world?

Excellent video quality Huge range of mounts 4K and slow-mo modes

Lacks a proper screen 4K mode only 15fps

Another fine action cam from GoPro that'll please plenty of exteme enthusiasts

GoPro HERO3+ Black Edition

 

GoPro's latest upgrade improves image quality and battery life

Improved image quality over original HERO3 ; Improved battery life ; SuperView mode

Relatively expensive ; External microphone requires USB adapter ; LCD screen an optional extra

The housing buttons are also bigger, and the mechanism for securing the rear door shut has been made simpler. There is now no extra button to push to open the catch securing the door, which in theory makes it less secure, and is probably a major reason...

Excellent for underwater adventures

 

Comes with all the items you need to capture amazing videos. I used a lot of the 2.7K 30fps video on a trip to Hawaii and it handled sand, water, rocks, and mud perfectly well. The quality of the video and photos is very good too. It's a great way to...

Battery does not last long. You will want to buy some extra batteries and a charger

Gopro 3+

 

Versatile, fast, creative, unbelievable image and video capture. Easy to operate. WOW WOW WOW. No ends to the ability to create exiting content. Created great videos right out of the box. No experience required. Easier than a standard SLR

Battery life is a little to short. Most venue it is probably fine mine use requires a longer operating life
