Looking for the ultimate Father's Day gift for your active hubby? If he skis, cycles, bungee jumps, skydives, snorkels, or races anything, knock his socks off with the GoPro HERO3 Black Edition!
GoPro makes the world's most popular action cameras, and the HERO3 Black Edition is the San Mateo, California-based company's most advanced model – 30 percent smaller, 25 percent lighter, Wi-Fi enabled and two times as powerful as previous models. It's a remarkable achievement, considering the device only weighs 2.6 ounces and is about one-third the size of a bar of soap.
The HERO3 Black Edition is wearable and gear-mountable, waterproof to 197 feet, and capable of capturing ultra-wide 1440p 48fps, 1080p 60 fps and 720p 120 fps video and 12MP photos at a rate of 30 photos per second. The camera captures professional, cinema-quality video at 2X the resolution and 2X the frame-rate of previous models while delivering 2X better low light performance.
Slow-motion enthusiasts will love the HERO3's 1080p-60, 720p-120, WVGA-240, 960p-100 and 1440p-48 video modes while those desiring a cinematic look will appreciate the ultra-high resolution 2.7KP-30 fps and 4KP-15 fps video modes.
The new camera also provides 12MP burst capture at 30 frames per second with 2X better low light performance compared to previous models. Still Photo and Time-lapse Photo modes remain the same but are now joined by a new Continuous Photo mode that captures continuous 12MP stills at a steady 3, 5, or 10 photo-per-second rate, up to 30 photos at a time.
The reduced-distortion, 6-element aspherical lens has user-selectable ultra-wide, medium and narrow field-of-views, and the updated flat-lens waterproof housing delivers stunning image sharpness both above and below water.
The GoPro HERO3 Black Edition sells for $399.99 and includes the camera, a waterproof housing rated for 197 ft., Wi-Fi remote + key ring, remote charging cable, rechargeable Li-ion battery, quick-release buckle, J-hook buckle, 3-way pivot arm, curved adhesive mount, flat adhesive mount, assorted mounts and hardware, and a USB charging cable.
