Professional video quality.
Stunning video quality has made GoPro one of the world’s best-selling camera companies, and HERO3+ Silver continues this tradition. High-resolution, high frame rate 1080p60, 960p60 and 720p120 video modes result in professional quality footage and allow for liquid-smooth slow-motion playback.
Powerful photo capture.
Along with professional video, HERO3+ Silver captures gorgeous 10MP photos. Choose from a variety of modes to nail the perfect shot. Burst shoots up to 10 photos in one second, perfect for fast-action sequences. Time Lapse automatically captures photos at set time intervals from 0.5 to 30 seconds. It’s great for gear-mounted shots when the shutter button is out of reach, or capturing a series of photos so you can pick your best shots.
Control, view + share with built-in Wi-Fi.
HERO3+ Silver features built-in Wi-Fi, allowing you to connect to the GoPro App or Smart Remote. The GoPro App transforms your phone or tablet into a live video remote for your camera, offering full control of all functions and settings, easy shot preview and playback, plus sharing via text, email, Facebook and more.

HERO3+ Silver features excellent audio performance, capturing even the most subtle of sounds whether you’re recording voices, music or the roar of your engine on a spirited drive. Advanced wind-noise reduction technology keeps the audio clearer during high-speed activities. The included Skeleton Backdoor enables enhanced audio capture during low-speed activities in dry, dirt-free environments.
Small + lightweight.
At just 2.6 ounces, the super small HERO3+ Silver camera is ultra portable and perfect for low-profile mounting. Its compact design means you can wear it or mount it to your gear and barely know its there as you capture your favorite activities, or slip it in your pocket or bag to take anywhere.

OUT OF THE BOX
First out is the camera, as it's nicely mounted in the glass container at the top of the box. It's already obvious the new housing for the Hero3+ is noticeably smaller and more compact than the older one. The housing buttons are larger and easier to press, but everything else was downsized. The latch no longer requires an extra tab to slide over, yet still feels very secure and tight when closed. The front covering over the lens has become simplified as there are no longer rivets or a large bezel adding to bulk.
There is some concern this could reduce durability, but short of throwing it into a wall, I'm going to just base this on look and feel. Which is to say it appear to be just a solid and durable as the old one. Otherwise the camera itself is identical in size to the old one, so everything is interchangeable. Extra batteries and cables will work just fine with both. You can check the product description to see what exactly is included, but it's just the basics. A few basic mounting brackets, stickers, mini-USB cable, etc. No charger is included.
After charging, the first step will be to supply a micro-sd card. I did run into an issue where my 32GB Sandisk Class 10 card wouldn't work. I just got an Error on the display. Despite manually cleaning and formatting the card to the specific exFat file system the camera required, it was never happy. At least not until I found the menu option within the camera itself to format the card for me (trash can icon). After that, it's been working great.Read more ›
I'm writing this review in a rather disappointed mood. I bought this camera for both action shoots and time-lapse no-scope astro-photography.
* The camera is tiny: much smaller and lighter than the pictures would let you believe. It comfortably sits on the palm of your hand.
* Wi-Fi is a battery vampire. In my tests, it will cut published battery life in about half. And unless you have the live view BackPack, you are going to need it together with the GoPro app.
* Without a heavy investment on accessories/harnesses/handles/leashes, you will find yourself with a $300 paperweight, for all action videography intents and purposes.
* The ultra-wide has quite a bit of barrel distortion at the edges, but this is normal for this type of lens.
As mentioned above, I had two purposes in mind for this camera: 1) I wanted a good under-water and action/rugged video and still camera to tote along when we go on family trips. 2) I like doing no-scope, time-lapse astrophotography and this is where this camera falls flat on its face. I ran several tests with good light and "night" light. time-lapses of clouds and of stars. And anything out in infinity came very soft, even at the center of the frame. This was a disappointment because my bud's GP2 takes much, much, much better pictures and time lapses than this much newer model. Then as some suggested, I took still pictures of myself and people standing within 10-15 feet were also soft-focused and not in a good way. Another disappointment that I mentioned above is that Wi-Fi will suck the life out of the battery really, really fast. On a full charge, I took about 32 minutes of video and about 17 still pictures before GP3+ battery dies on me.
All in all, these issues are simply too important for me and am returning the camera as we speak.
The extreme wide angle lens captures anything in front of it - the inherent distortion of the lens can be countered by using the excellent lens profiles available for Adobe Photoshop and Lightroom -
The Hero 3+ Silver edition includes a tough housing, waterproof and durable, which allows for a myriad of mounting options, from head and chest straps to tripod heads and adhesive mounts.
I've been using mine for a week and although the hardware has worked flawlessly, I have had problems with my camera's wireless connection. The problem was easily solved, but be aware that the mobile app is not 100% reliable.
Otherwise, I am delighted with this item.
WiFi iPad App allows 100% remote control.
