Product Description
gopro Twice as powerful as the previous HERO, the GoPro HERO3 Silver Edition camera is the smallest, lightest, most powerful HERO camera ever. Smaller and lighter than its predecessors, the GoPro HERO3 Silver possesses built-in Wi-Fi and remarkable high-definition performance with waterproof durability.

Weighing in at only 2.6 oz., the HERO3 is wearable, gear-mountable, and waterproof to 197 ft. (60m). The HERO3 Silver Edition captures ultra-wide video at 30 frames per second (1080p), 48 fps (960p), and 60 fps (720p), all at WVGA-120 resolutions and frame rates. It also captures crisp, clear 11MP still photos at a rate of 10 images per second with burst mode or time-lapse photos at 0.5, 1, 2, 5, 10, 30, or 60 second intervals. The reduced-distortion, aspherical lens works in 1080p with user-selectable ultra-wide, medium, and narrow fields of view to deliver a variety of perspective-capture options. Additional camera settings include looping video, continuous photo, manual white balance control, Protune mode, and simultaneous still/video capture, so you can shoot like a pro.

The HERO3 also includes built-in Wi-Fi allowing you to control it remotely from the optional Wi-Fi remote (not included) or from practically any iOS/Android smartphone or tablet using the free GoPro App. The GoPro App is available for free download at the GoPro website and enables full camera control and live scene preview on any compatible iOS or Android smartphone or tablet.

The HERO3 redesigned audio system is as adept at capturing the subtle, natural sounds of voices and music as it is at capturing the immersive sounds of action sports. Its improved wind-noise reduction helps ensure that you'll hear more of your passion and less of the wind during high-speed activities.

HERO3 connect options include a micro HDMI port, USB port, and a port for an optional 3.5mm stereo mic adapter or composite A/V adapter (adapters not included). The HERO3 also supports class 10 microSD cards (not included) up to 64GB for plenty of memory storage. The HERO3 is fully compatible with Windows Vista, Windows 7 and later, and Mac OS X 10.5 and later.

The HERO3 flat-lens housing is waterproof for stunning image sharpness both above and below the water. It also works with all GoPro mounting accessories and 1st generation BacPacs, the newer generation LCD Touch BacPac and the 2nd generation Battery BacPac (all sold separately). The HERO3 includes a rechargeable lithium ion battery, QR and J-hook buckles, 3-way pivot, curved and flat adhesive mounts, assorted mounting hardware, and a USB charging cable.

      Comments about GoPro HERO3 Silver Edition Camera:

      Camera is AWESOME! Didn't quite need the resolution of the black nor the remote. Note - the Android/iOS App performs same function as the remote AND gives you a preview of what is recording. Therefore I wouldn't factor the remote in when considering Silver vs Black.
