Weighing in at a scant 2.6 ounces, the HERO3: Silver Edition is 25% lighter and 30% smaller than the HD HERO2 camera it replaces.
The HERO3: Silver Edition captures professional quality video at 1080p-30, 720p-60, 960p-48 and WVGA-120 resolutions and frame rates.
The HERO3: Silver Edition captures 11MP still photos and has a burst capture rate of 10 frames per second. Time-lapse photo capture mode enables automatic photo capture at 0.5, 2, 5, 10, 30 and 60 second intervals.
The HERO3: Silver Edition's reduced-distortion aspherical lens combines with user-selectable 1080p Ultra-wide, Medium and Narrow field-of-views to deliver more perspective-capture options than are available on the White Edition camera. The totally updated flat-lens waterproof housing delivers stunning image sharpness both above and below water.
Understanding that sound quality is as important as image quality, GoPro engineers completely redesigned the HERO3: Silver Edition to be as adept at capturing the subtle, natural sounds of voice and music as it is at capturing the immersive sounds of sport. Also improved is GoPro's already famous wind-noise reduction, ensuring that you'll hear more of your passion, be it your engine or expletives, and less of the wind during high speed activities.
The HERO3: Silver Edition features built-in Wi-Fi and is compatible with both the Wi-Fi Remote (optional accessory) and the GoPro App. The Wi-Fi Remote (not included) is a waterproof, wearable remote control that can control up to 50 Wi-Fi-enabled GoPros at a time from a range of 600'.
