GoPro Hero3+ Black Edition

 

Depending on whom you ask, GoPro's action cameras are the best available or they're all marketing.

The GoPro Hero3+ Black Edition produces some of the best -- if not the best -- video we've seen from an action cam. Its abundant resolution and frame rate options will satisfy beginners and experienced shooters.

Navigating the on-camera settings menus still isn't the best experience. Battery life can be brief depending on the features you're using. Plan to buy accessories including a microSD card.

Like the Hero3, the GoPro Hero3+ Black Edition's strongest attributes are its excellent video quality and impressive list of shooting options. If that's what matters most to you, this is the action cam to get.

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.

The best gets (a little) better.

A solid upgrade

Expert review by:

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...

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'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
