The GoPro Hero3 Black Edition has been replaced by a newer model with fancy 4K video functionality, the GoPro Hero4. If you aren’t in the market for 4K video footage, though, last year’s model has held up pretty well, even if you might struggle to find one. Sadly, unless you manage to stumble across some old stock, the Hero 3 Black Edition is no longer available to purchase, so if you’re considering purchasing a GoPro, you’re basically trapped with the latest design, which isn’t actually a bad factor. The gold version is still doing the units too, yet the cost has been pulled up somewhat, so I’d say you’re better off adhering with the Idol 4.

GoPro Hero3 Performance
The Hero3 White Edition’s video quality surprised us; it’s sharper and clearer than the Hero3+ Silver Edition, which is $100 more expensive. The Hero3+ Silver Edition employs a newer 10-megapixel sensor compared with the White Edition’s 5-MP sensor. However, GoPro’s older sensor is tried and proven. The 10-MP sensor seems to be a new addition to GoPro’s component library, as the company used its 11-MP sensor in the Hero2, which was then rebranded to become the Hero3 Silver Edition. We’ve achieved out to GoPro for feedback regarding the 10-MP indicator and the obvious low-quality movie it catches, and we’ll publish an upgrade as soon as we listen to back; either way, the White-colored Version catches an outstanding movie as is.
