GoPro Hero 3 Camcorder – Edition, Hero 3 Black Edition

I purchased this camera on ‘black friday’ in late 2013 and made a massive saving. I’d already decided to buy the camera and the additional saving was a welcome bonus. All in all i am happy with the quality of the camera; it takes fantastic footage (i use it inside a milling machine as part of my job). The bluetooth remote control took some getting used to (initial connection seemed temperamental, but that could just be me). I would definitely recommend this camera to anyone looking for a top-notch unit capable of recording high quality footage in even the most hazardous environments.

Great price and well packaged.

I bought my ‘white’ edition in walmart in the states ($200 not £200), just before learning to scuba dive and going zip-lining. With little experience i found it worked as advertised straight out of the box, without fault and without any problems whatsoever. I did later upgrade the firmware, via the manual method, but this didn’t stop me using it straight away. Pros;- the original skeleton housing, suction cup and time lapse frame rates of 0. 5 or 1 second gave me some superb videos of driving up mt haleakla on maui, and the hana coast. Used underwater in the waterproof housing down to 90ft, provided no problem either (though i did find the red front colour correction filter trapped minute bubbles which needed to be cleared semi-regularly). Due to the extreme wide angle nature of the lens, what i though might be jerky video from a car bonnet seamed to be ironed out with no effort on my part at all. Sound quality was pretty good in the skeleton housing, and was even fairly good in the waterproof housing at depth too. Battery life was pretty good, well in excess of an hour and a half, using 1s timelapse photos, and you could easily get an average afternoons stop start video from it if turned off in between events.

Would be 5 stars except battery life. Make no mistakes the quality of the video recorded with my gopro surpass anything else i’ve ever used, including some pretty expensive canon slr’s. My primary reason for buying was to film 50-100 feet down from the boat and for that it is perfect, a little bit of editing with the supplied software to colour correct the video and i can’t imagine getting a better view of what is on the sea floor without going down myself. It works very well in low light conditions. The 3rd generation case doesn’t have the fish eye problems of the first 2 generations. I’ve also used it as a dash mount camera and on my head, in all instances the images captured are superb in their clarity, stability and colour reproduction. There are a couple of tiny niggles, for a start the door casing can be very stiff until you’ve used it for a couple of months, i was always scared of breaking it, a bit stupid really because it is very well made. The other is the hit & miss usb charging. It’s fine if you just connect it to charge but if you’ve been doing any data transfer before leaving it to charge it doesn’t always seem to work. Again a very small issue that takes seconds to fix (just disconnect and reconnect).

Out of the box and straight in to action the gopro hero 3 produces a pretty high quality image and certainly did not disappoint. The camera has a great focus underwater, which i found a huge benefit. The image is generally clean, it lacks some detail along sharp edges when focussing in and can return some flat pictures. I find the quality with photos comes from still shots taken from the recording feature. Through the night i tend to get soft edged photos the occasional washed out image, and pixel binning, but again, it worked well for what i needed it for. It has a great mountable design which allowed me to but it basically anywhere and position it well to get the best shots. The battery life is far better than i expected which again is a huge bonus if your out recording for long periods of time. I would definitely recommend getting a gopro to anyone, they work really well, small and easily mountable and return good quality images/videos.

Great item would definitely recommend for anyone wanting to catch life on the go.
I bought the go pro hero 3 black edition 3 years ago. I’ve always loved the design and it’s brilliant for someone like me who does a lot of outdoor activities (swimming, skiing etc) with moments you never want to forget. You need to consider what you actually will use the camera for, how often and what you’ll do with the videos after as to what camera will suit you. The reviews were brilliant and i have not been disappointed, it records perfect quality and i have not had a single issue in three years. I’d recommend this camera, plus, you can just keep buying add-on extras each birthday/christmas as a little present to yourself. The quality is perfect, at 4kp fps, 2. 7 kp 30 fps, 1440p48/ 1080p60/ 720p120 fps it’s brilliant. It’s realistically future proof for the long term, for the photos the 12mp 30fps burst is brilliant to ensure you get the picture you want. Especially when doing something crazythe wifi and wifi remote (built in on the black edition) are brilliant and have never let me down.

The battery that came with the gopro wasn’t the original battery and wasn’t as powerful, but apart from that, all was good.
