GoPro Hero3 Black Edition Review

18 November 2013
  • Conclusion: Nearly all of the issues we had with the GoPro Hero3 were the result of us being complete rookies with the camera. Guilty. Yes, we should have known that we would need additional accessories if we wanted to attach the camera to a bike.
  • Pros: Small size, Crisp images in nearly all lighting conditions, Durable waterproof case can survive almost anything, Wi-Fi remote control, Smartphone app, Protune mode for cinema-style images
  • Cons: Battery life is dismal, No off-camera battery charger, Lots of small pieces that are easy to lose, Getting started isn’t straightforward for newbies, Included mounts won’t cover all activities
