Summary: GoPro cameras have been our go-to action cams since we were knee-high to a snowboard, so we're pretty stoked about the arrival of the Hero3+ Black Edition. This radical little box of tricks promises a better lens, longer battery life and faster wireless operation than the previous Hero3, while still packing such epic treats as 4K video and 30fps stills.
Pros: Excellent video quality, Huge range of mounts, 4K and slow-mo modes
Excerpt: Just over a year ago GoPro unveiled the Hero3, a dinky mountable camcorder-like device that - and just like its earlier Hero models - made waves among its users. But as if that wasn’t good enough, the company has refreshed the model in the form of the Hero3+.
Pros: An extra squeeze of battery life, small size and trimmed-back waterproof housing, quality results in variety of conditions, crop-in options for different angles of view (up to 1080p only), Wi-Fi enabled, new clip lock preferable
Cons: Battery life still not good enough, it's a minor update over the original Hero3 (not worth upgrading but good for first timer buyers), fussy user interface, 4K frame rate too low, touchscreen sold separately
