Each new edition retains the iconic look of the previous award- winning HD HERO cameras, but comes in at about half the size of its predecessors and has built-in Wi-Fi technology.

At the top end of the new product line up, the HD HERO3 Black Edition is one of the most powerful camera systems available, delivering astounding 4K and 2.7K video resolutions all in the size of a small box of matches, making it easier to share your world.

The White, Silver and Black editions are available for pre-order at and are shipping to specialty retailers around the world for MSRP $199.99, $299.99 and $399.99 respectively.

The Wi-Fi enabled HERO3 Black Edition is the most advanced GoPro, ever. No expense was spared during its development, resulting in a GoPro that is 30% smaller, 25% lighter and 2x more powerful than previous models.

Wearable and gear mountable, waterproof to 197′ (60m), capable of capturing ultra-wide 1440p 48fps, 1080p 60 fps and 720p 120 fps video and 12MP photos at a rate of 30 photos per second, the HERO3: Black Edition is the world’s most versatile camera.

The HERO3’s reduced-distortion, 6-element aspherical lens combines with user-selectable Ultra-wide, Medium and Narrow field-of-views to deliver more perspective-capture options than ever before.
