GoPro, maker of the world’s most versatile cameras and enabler of immersive life-experience capture and sharing, announces global availability of its new line of next generation HERO3 cameras. Debuted earlier this month to global media, the HERO3 is now shipping worldwide and is available in three models.
GoPro’s flagship model, the HERO3: Black Edition, is the most advanced GoPro camera ever. With no expense spared in its development, the HERO3: Black Edition is 30% smaller, 25% lighter and 2x more powerful than previous models.

The HERO3: Black Edition can also capture 12MP photos at a staggering rate of 30 photos per second. Built-in Wi-Fi, GoPro App compatibility, and the included Wi-Fi Remote (normally a separate $79.99 accessory) make the HERO3: Black Edition a powerful and versatile solution for capturing and sharing immersive and engaging footage of your favorite life experiences.
Whether worn on the chest while skiing, mounted to a motorcycle to record a spirited ride, or worn on the head to document the birth of a first-born child, the HERO3: Black Edition captures stunning hands-free footage of your life experiences with professional quality normally seen only in professional productions.
Collectively more professional athletes, filmmakers, and creative artists are using GoPro than any other camera in the world to capture everything from competition footage to television commercials to feature-length films. As a result, GoPro has captured 95% of the global wearable camera market and over 32% of the global small form-factor video camera market, making GoPro’s HERO line of cameras the best selling small video cameras in the world.The HERO3: Black Edition is available for US $399.99 and includes GoPro’s Wi-Fi Remote accessory, normally a separate US $79.99 accessory, at no additional cost.
The HERO3 also is available in identically sized HERO3: Silver and White Editions, all sharing the same iconic look of the HERO3 and all sharing the same built-in Wi-Fi technology:
