GoPro Announces the Hero+ Models

GoPro has announced new models of their Hero line that are smaller and offer improved image quality, though rumors of 4K at 30fps proved incorrect; the new Black model goes to 15fps (up from 12fps on the current Black model.) Most people will probably want to shoot in the Black's 2,7K mode.

GoPro also announced new accessories including a new LCD Touch BacPac, new Battery BacPac, and a variety of new mounts.

Availability is quoted as "limited" at the moment.

  • HERO3+ is 20% smaller than the HERO3 and it features a lighter housing that's waterproof to 131'
  • SuperView video mode allows you to capture an immersive wide angle perspective
  • Auto Low Light mode intelligently adjusts frame rate for improved low light performance
  • The HERO3+ features 33% improved image sharpness and reduced distortion
  • The HERO3+ features faster built-in Wi-Fi for enhanced connectivity to the included Wi-Fi Remote and downloadable GoPro App
  • The HERO3+ provides 25% longer battery life than the HERO3
  • Wireless camera software updates via the GoPro App
  • The HERO3+ has been equipped with upgraded audio performance
The Black and Silver models have the same list price as the previous versions, though you can buy the current Black model for $329.99 and the Silver for $249.99.

Pre-order the GoPro HERO3+ Silver Edition Camera $299.99
Pre-order the GoPro HERO3+ Black Edition Camera $399.99
