From the Manufacturer


The Camera That Started a Movement

Born from a passion to capture your adventures from your perspective, the completely redesigned HERO3: Editions line of cameras are the most advanced GoPro cameras, ever.

Versatility

Unprecedented Durability

Shockproof and waterproof to 197' (60m), and proven in heavy surf from Tahiti to Northern California and everywhere in between, GoPro cameras can handle it thanks their highly engineered polycarbonate exoskeletal housing. Ready for action—from scuba diving to dirt track racing, and tough enough to take a spin across the asphalt or launch into space, GoPros are built to take a beating and keep filming. Replacement lens kits and housings are available, so there’s little worry while going for glory—even while diving with sharks.

Wear it. Mount it. Love it.™

GoPro mounts enable you to capture a fully immersive experience of your most exciting moments while ensuring your camera is securely attached and with you for the ride. Helmets, poles, boards, vehicles—and even yourself—whatever you’re into, there’s a GoPro camera mount that will help you get the perfect angle and POV for your most epic adventures. The HERO3 comes with a few basic mounts to get you started.

HERO3: The Most Advanced GoPro, Ever.

Notes
  1. Extreme cold temperatures may decrease battery life. For use in these conditions it is suggested to keep camera in a warm place prior to use.
  2. To maximize HERO3 battery life when shooting longer duration activities, it is best to use camera without LCD Touch BacPac attached and make sure Wi-Fi is turned OFF.
  3. Using protune mode will increase power consumption. May vary per mode and camera edition.

Before the HD Hero3 I've already owned the original Hero camera, the HD Hero 2 camera, and now the third generation HD Hero3 in Silver Edition. I've used mine for almost a year now, here's my updated review.

Smaller Camera
Compared to the Hero2, the Hero3 is about half the thickness of the Hero2, but more importantly the Hero3 is noticeably lighter, both in hand and when mounted to things like helmets or handlebars. The reduced body thickness also makes the camera easier to position and get to the perfect angle - especially when using the Chesty harness mount or the handlebar mount.

New Case
The new sealed splash-proof case is obviously thinner like the camera, but features the same spring-loaded buttons just like the Hero2 has. If you have a large selection of Hero2 mounts and accessories, they will still work with the Hero3, including the LCD BacPac (though the newer version is in black to match the Hero3 color scheme), the Battery BacPac (newer version gets the same color treatment) and the redundant WiFi BacPac (which you won't need since WiFi is built into the Hero3). The new lens cover is rectangular, and the replaceable lens piece is now recessed behind the frame - much better than the bubble-eye Hero2 lens piece that was easily prone to getting scuffed or scratched because it stuck out. One little "improvement" that is actually a little annoying is the new 2-step release clamp at the top. Whereas with the Hero2 case you had to tug at a tight-fitting latch, on the Hero3 case you have to slide a small tab with one hand, then you can lift the latch open with the other hand.

Amazon took down my first review of the Hero3 Silver. I don't know why. I got one (not ordered through Amazon) for my birthday back in November 2012 and it didn't work. I took it back to big box retailer and got a replacement. It also didn't work. Then I got a third one. For the third time, it didn't work. I bought two San Disk cards, a 16GB and a 64GB, both are the models recommended by gopro, and updated the firmware on all three of the cameras to the most recent (it was the 12/15/2012 FW, which was still the most recent available in February 2013). Everytime, after 20-40 videos, the memory card would get corrupted, the camera would lock up, and I'd lose all my stored videos. At that point the camera would start corrupting the memory card almost immediately every time, even after I reformtted it in the camera. Because the issue takes so many videos to occur, even though I use them a lot (surfing, in my truck and on my motorcycle), it took me 3 months to burn through the three cameras. And because it took so long, the big box retailer where I bought it would only give me store credit in the end.

I think that gopro has been proactively trying to bury these problems (and that is why my first review was taken down and the average review is now 3 stars instead of 2 1/2 like it was when I wrote it the first time). I will keep an eye on this one and see if they take it down as well. I'm an Amazon Prime member and and software engineer. I have written probably two dozen product reviews on Amazon and too my knowledge, only the gopro one has been removed. This gopro camera has serious problems, I believe it is do to a hardware issue with the memory card controller and that it cannot be fixed with firmware updates. At least not any of the updates available to me in February 2013.

This camera is great! Pics, video, and sound are all top notch! However, many people are reporting their Hero 3 cameras freezing up after a few mins of use. Unfortunately, I've got one of the bad batch.

This camera is essentially a paperweight until GoPro releases a patch or update to the firmware of this camera. Until they do, I cannot, in good conscience, recommend this product.

Hi Andrew,

Sorry for such a late reply and to learn of the trouble endured. If your camera is still experiencing any freezing issues, please make sure you have updated the camera's firmware to the most recent version available on our website. Please also be sure to use a recommended SD card, with a class 10 write speed rating, and that the SD card has been formatted for the camera by using the delete ALL function in the setting menu (**save any footage you have on the SD card first because this will erase the card).

We hope this helps get you back out there to record some awesome footage, but if you are still having any trouble please reach out to our support team.

Just received the new GoPro Hero3. We updated the firmware as they suggest. Now the camera freezes on power on. I should have looked at other websites for feedback as this is not an uncommon problem. I have their older cameras and they work great. This model isn't ready for prime time yet. Once they fix it, it will be a great product. It's just not ready now. The Hero3 is going back to Amazon on Monday.

I ordered our GoPro HD Hero3 Silver in advance of a family ski-trip out west. First thing you notice is buying a GoPro is just the beginning -- there are no end of accessories you'll end up tempted by (we got the Chesty harness, a 64GB SanDisk MicroSD card, and eventually bought more curved surface mounts at a local shop).

We tested the camera out over a couple of days at our home resort in NH, and were immediately impressed with the image quality it's capable of producing. With just a little editing, you're producing some fun action video to share with family and friends. In this regard, the GoPro meets expectations -- it's simple to operate, and it shoots amazingly high quality video.

At home and over the first few days of our vacation, we played around with different placement and angles (you do have to aim the camere somewhat carefully in "medium" view, or you end up looking at the ground a lot). We successfully (though not without glitches) have used the iOS and Android apps to manage setup and aiming. And we took some really compelling video of storm-riding at Steamboat, where the wide-angle and high resolution made simply beautiful shots. We also took it with us -- in its waterproof housing -- to the famous natural hot springs outside Steamboat. It was great fun taking the camera right in the water, and the first few pictures and short video I took were cool.

And then it happened -- I am guessing something glitched when changing between camera and video modes -- but the unit stopped recording altogether. Oh, it looked like it was recording, and the video / image counter incremented... but nothing was actually stored on the MicroSD card, and the counter reset when you shut the camera off...
