GoPro Hero3+ Silver Edition

 

As the highest-end model in GoPro's camera lineup, the Hero3+ Black Edition gets all the attention. At $299, however, the Hero3+ Silver Edition is the one more people will consider buying.

The GoPro Hero3+ Silver Edition combines excellent HD video with recording options up to 1080p at 60fps and the same design as the company's other cameras so you have access to a large selection of accessories and mounts.

The $100 savings from the Black Edition costs you many shooting options and some video quality, particularly in low light. Battery life can be brief depending on the features you're using. Plan to buy accessories, including a microSD card.

If you like GoPro's camera design and just want solid HD video, you might be able to save yourself $100 and get this instead of the $400 Black Edition.

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+ 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

Consumer review by:

Great camera

 

I am really happy with my camera. I wish I had more opportunity to use it!

Consumer review by:

Something different in a very small package.

 

This is not a typical camera, so if you are looking for something new in a tiny package that produces great photos and video, this camera is for you. I recommend purchasing the optional rear screen, which make the camera much easier to use.

Consumer review by:

Great camera for underwater adventures!

 

I just moved to Maui and wanted a camera that I could take anywhere, and this is it! Great both underwater and above.

Consumer review by:

I would only recommend this camera for first person view of an extreme experience like skydiving scuba diving biking etc.
