GoPro launches HERO3 video camera

GoPro, makers of those awesome little HD cameras called HERO’s, have launched their latest incarnation the HERO3.

The HERO3 is 30% smaller, 25% lighter and comes with a processor twice as fast as the HERO2.  It comes in 3 different versions – Black, Silver and White.  The Black edition captures video at 4K resolution, at 15fps, but also offers a variety of other quality settings, as well as 11 Megapixel stills.  The Silver Edition has 11 Megapixel stills and 1080p30 video, while the White Edition has 5 Megapixel stills.

As part of the launch GoPro shot a video showing off some awesome outdoor action filmed on the HERO3.  You’ll recognize a few familiar freedivers in the video – Erin Magee, Mandy-Rae Cruickshank, Kirk Krack and Ashleigh Baird. All of the freediving footage was shot with Performance Freediving International instructors on a secret mission in Tonga this past September. WATCH the video below.
