GoPro Hero3+ Black Edition review: Top-of-the-line action cam improves on excellent predecessor

 

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.

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 HD Hero3+ Black Edition

 

The plastic housing is also smaller and lighter than that of past versions, yet Paul Davies of The Telegraph describes it as "nigh on indestructible." The same applies to the mounts; TheWirecutter.com's Brent Rose says they're "notoriously tough,"...

Superior video quality, Lots of shooting options, Wide variety of mounts, Sturdy build

So-so battery life, May produce blurry distance shots

A solid upgrade

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 Hero3+ Black Edition review

 

Smaller, lighter, faster, better

Excellent build quality ; High quality footage ; Improved lens quality ; Faster Wi-Fi

No built in preview screen ; Case can be fiddly to use ; Menu takes time to navigate

It might not have the good looks of some of its competitors, but the GoPro is simple to use, offers a huge array of mounting options, most importantly, enables you to capture some incredible footage.

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+ 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 £80 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
