Sneaky Game Changer - GoPro HD HERO3!

Typically announcements from GoPro are mercilessly leaked and rabidly anticipated months prior to the eventual release.

In the case of the new GoPro HD HERO3, it seems to have slipped under the radar only to have unleashed with a phenomenal bang on October 17 2012. Now one of our most asked-about cameras, this industry fireball is available for preorder with the first shipment expected in Mid November.

This generation comes in Black, Silver and White editions. The Black Edition is the pièce de résistance, a GoPro that is 30% smaller, 25% lighter and 2x more powerful than previous models. It comes with the waterproof Wi-Fi remote for ultimate control at a distance, and perhaps the most amazing feature is the ability to shoot 4K Cinematic Video at 12fps. Nope, that's not a typo; your adventures will be reproduced in the most stunning detail and colours yet (and also munch a lot of the memory on your MicroSD cards).  You can also shoot gorgeous 12 megapixel still photos and a lot more, but we're still getting over the 4K video.

The Silver Edition offers a similar diminutive body packed full of performance, but leaves the video at a still-respectable HD 1080p/24, while incorporating built-in Wi-Fi (though you'll have to buy the remote with this one) and 11MP stills with 10fps continuous shooting.

The White Edition is the entry-level, basically offering similar specs to the Original HD HERO in a smaller, lighter Wi-Fi enabled package with the brand new User Interface.

All editions of the HD HERO 3 are compatible with the insanely fun GoPro app for smartphones and tablets, allowing live video preview and control right from your device. They also support most mounts and accessories in the existing range.
