New GoPro HD Hero3 adds Wi-Fi and slims down

New GoPro HD Hero3 adds Wi-Fi and slims down

The GoPro HD Hero3 builds on its predecessor, packing wireless connectivity into a smaller frame.

The marvellous GoPro HD Hero2 camera now has a successor unsurprisingly known as the GoPro HD Hero3.

Like its predecessor, the HD Hero3 is designed for filming extreme sports and other dangerous activities – but this time it has a few new tricks up its sleeve. Built-in Wi-Fi connectivity allows you to send photos and video straight off onto your home computer without a cable – and yet somehow the device is 30 per cent smaller and 25 per cent lighter, making it even more inconspicuous when attached to a helmet or on your handlebars.

Instead of being sold in packages based around your extreme sport of choice – as with the HD Hero2 – the GoPro HD Hero3 comes in White, Silver and Black Editions, each one denoting the level of performance.

The top of the range Black Edition has the ability to record 4K video, and comes with a waterproof remote for controlling multiple cameras, erm, remotely. Then there's the doubling of frame rates at lower resolutions, improving quality quite substantially.

Jump down a notch and the Silver Edition shoots 11MP stills and 30fps 1080p video, while the budget White Edition shoots 5MP stills. All come with the standard accessories but the daddy of the range also comes with the premium ones, too.
