Smallest, lightest GoPro yet

The HERO3+ Black Edition is 20% smaller and lighter than previous models—making it the most mountable, wearable and versatile GoPro ever.

Professional video quality

Stunning video quality has made GoPro the world’s best-selling camera company, and the HERO3+ Black Edition continues this tradition. High-resolution, high-frame rate 1440p48, 1080p60, 960p100 and 720p120 video modes result in professional quality footage and allow for liquid-smooth slow motion playback. 4Kp15 and 2.7Kp30 enable ultra high-resolution, cinema quality capture.

Powerful photo capture

The HERO3+ Black Edition captures gorgeous 12MP stills at up to 30 frames per second—perfect for fast-action sequences. Time Lapse mode enables automatic photo capture at 0.5, 1, 2, 5, 10, 30 or 60 second intervals. Continuous Photo shoots full-resolution stills at a steady 3, 5 or 10 frames per second when holding down the shutter button.

Introducing SuperView

GoPro is proud to introduce SuperView, a video mode that captures the world’s most immersive wide angle perspective. It allows you to capture more of yourself and your surroundings in the shot—resulting in captivating, ultra engaging footage.

Sharper images, less distortion

Looks to me like the actual gopro unit is the exact same, and that it is the watertight housing that has been made less bulky.

You are correct. Case is smaller, but some items on the camera are different

So have they forgone the A9 chip?

Or will we see a GPH4 using that chip soon?

The intro of the GPH3+ just seems strange to me They've been doing more than that in the last year for sure!!!

Maybe they're having trouble with power consumption with the A9???

I love slow mo footage and the prospect of 1080p 120fps and 720p 240fps is very enticing
