GoPro HERO3+ launched
It goes without saying that companies should not be complacent, with their products requiring a refresh from time to time in order to keep up with the proverbial Joneses. Hence, we are already up to the Samsung Galaxy S4 and also the iPhone 5S, so it also makes plenty of sense that GoPro’s HERO has now arrived as the GoPro HERO3+, delivering a new era of personal content capture as well as sharing. What makes the GoPro HERO3+ so special from its predecessors? It is said to be 20% smaller and lighter in design, where there is also an improved battery life of up to 30% better compared to previous models. These upgrades will work in tandem with an improved lens and convenient new video capture modes, resulting in the most advanced and easy-to-use GoPro to date.
Not only that, GoPro also knows that a device cannot live alone and requires accessories these days, which is why they have also introduced a bunch of new mounting accessories which will further enable immersive content capture regardless of the activity that you are involved in at the moment.
Other hardware specifications include 4x faster Wi-Fi connectivity to deliver a quicker transfer and playback of photos and videos from your HERO3+ camera to your mobile device when one is using the GoPro App. There is also SuperView, which is a new video mode that can capture the world’s most immersive wide-angle perspective. In addition, an Auto Low Light mode would be able to intelligently adjust the frame rate for different lighting conditions, while a new lens delivers sharper video and improved image quality. The asking price of the GoPro HERO3+ Black Edition stands at $399.99.
There is also the GoPro HERO3+ Silver Edition which is has a 2x faster image processor which also enables 1080p60 and 720p120 fps video. The HERO3+ Silver Edition camera will be more affordable at $299.99 a pop.
