GoPro’s New Hero 3+ Has Some Slight Improvements


The action camera that everyone has always loved has been upgraded today. The GoPro Hero3+ contains some slight improvements over its predecessor, but doesn’t seem to be as jaw dropping as when the original Hero 3 dropped. The 3+ has upgrades in the form of being 20% smaller in the Black Edition, 33% image sharpness according to the company, a new auto-low light mode that will adjust the frame rate (though one of the big rules of videography is that you never touch your frame rate) and 30% better battery life. The company’s silver edition (which isn’t as fancy pants as the black) can shoot 1080p at 60fps, and 720 at 120 fps.

The Hero3+ are available now for pre-order with prices starting at $299 for the Silver, and $399 for the black.
