GoPro HERO3: Black Edition
- Initially, my fingers were constantly in the picture, and only after a long exercise (missing viewfinder!), The motives were centered.
- But my Hollow Dive movies were very noisy – nominally worse action cams are better.
- The GoPro3 also delivers sharp images while moving, with colors that look quite pale and low in contrast (especially underwater).
- To switch to photo mode, it is difficult to set up WiFi remote control.
- It provides a very good picture, is equipped with an excellent wide-angle and can also be extended very diverse.
- The biggest shortcoming, however, is the battery life, which does not increase significantly despite the expensive extra battery pack.
- The low-noise 4K recordings have an outstanding sharpness.
- Unfortunately, the 4K video recording jerks a bit due to the 15 fps.
- In addition, the camera can be attached to almost any surface.
- Their sharpest competitors still come from the same house: The Silver and White Edition of Hero 3.
- Although these offer no 50 fps in Full HD and no simultaneous videos, but also provide very good picture quality.
- I chose the Black Edition because it gives me more options outside of model flying.
- However, if I lose the camera at some point while flying in a corn field, then the financial loss would be quite painful.
- Expensive, but washed with almost all waters, makes the GoPro Hero 3 in the Black Edition the market leader all honor.
- Anyone looking for a universal talent will definitely not miss out on this action cam.
- The manufacturer worked very hard on the improvements of the models, so that the results in professional use are even better and presents three new models.
- Technical featuresThe three new models of the Hero3 are called White, Silver and Black Edition.
- However, this does not mean the color of the walking-gear, but rather the technical features, which are clearly different from each other.
- All three have different resolving sensors, although they guarantee all the pictures in full HD with 1080p at least 30 frames per second.
- However, the Black Edition takes it one step further as a top-of-the-line model, offering 60 FPS (frames per second) in the usual Full HD resolution and increasing the resolution to 2.7k at 30 FPS.
- Whether the maximum resolution of 4k at 15 FPS still makes sense, is left up to each and is also dependent on the purpose.
- The also new aspherical lens ensures less distortion and significantly more sharpness during the video recording.
- The audio system has been completely redesigned to better suppress wind noise and filter out the comments of the camera camp or the surrounding noise.
- Further equipmentThe WiFi remote already presented in the summer is offered as an optional accessory, but is included in the Black Edition.
- This waterproof remote control can control up to 50 camera units, even if the maximum distance of 180 meters is reached.
- Of course, the action camera can also remotely control with an iPhone or iPad.
- Despite the many technical improvements that give Hero3 a great deal of professionalism, the camera has been designed to be 25 lighter and around 30 percent smaller, which significantly improves comfort.
- The controls are also easier to print and are supported by the new underwater housing accordingly.
- Much more usable 60 frames per second, however, the camera delivers at a resolution of 1920 times 1080 points.
- And the 120 frames per second, which are interesting for slow-motion playback, reaches the Hero3 with a resolution of at least 1280 by 720 points.
- The 4K recording mode is best left out, as it is unsuitable for action shooting at 15 frames per second.
- Interesting is the 2.7K mode, which creates the scope for additional corrections such as image stabilization.
