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

 

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

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

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

With three Hero3+ cameras to choose from (Black, Silver and White), price shouldn't be much of an issue. Nor should quality. GoPro's taken a leaf out of Apple's book and released its "best ever" camera, even if it's just an incremental update over the...

GoPro Hero3+ Black Edition

 

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

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.

Included is a handy remote that lets you control recording if the camera is mounted on, say, a helmet. The remote also changes modes, and it has large buttons to make it easier to use with gloves. It's a nice extra.

GoPro Hero3+ Black Edition pumps impressive video

 

The incremental update brings better Wi-Fi and battery life, a new lens, and a couple added shooting features, and keeps its predecessor's great video performance.

The ; 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 Hero 3+ Black Edition Review

 

Other camera companies may deny it, but GoPro created the action-cam market. With so many competent knockoffs out there now, the onus is on GoPro to prove its action cams still rule the roost. And the California-based company hopes to prove that with...

Latch can be a little tough to open/close; 4K only supports 15fps; gets hot under load

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

The world's most versatile camera and the world's most popular smartphone lineup join forces thanks to the official GoPro app for iOS. Built-in wireless connectivity, stunning picture quality and a stellar lineup of accessories make the GoPro Hero3+...

Built-in Wi-Fi and an improved iOS app make this a great pairing with iPhone or iPad ; Great construction and durability paired with fantastic picture quality for action videos ; Accessories, mounts and attachments for the GoPro lineup are abundant.

iOS file format support is limited, but that's a problem Apple must fix. ; 4K video maxes out at 15 frames per second. Still, it's 4K video. ; Available for ; - Amazon.com

If you make sure to record footage in an iOS-friendly format, the possibilities with the GoPro Hero3+ are nearly limitless. Apple's iPhoto and iMovie are great on-the-go tools for making quick edits on either iPhone or iPad. That means there's no need...

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...

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. The GoPro Hero 3+ is by no means the leap that we...
