  • Smallest, lightest Silver Edition yet: The HERO3+ Silver Edition is 15% smaller and lighter than previous models—making it the most mountable, wearable and versatile Silver Edition GoPro yet.
  • 2x more powerful: Boasting 2x the performance of its predecessor, the HERO3+ Silver Edition captures high-quality 1080p60 and 720p120 video and offers dramatically improved low-light performance.
  • Professional video quality: Stunning video quality has made GoPro the world’s best-selling camera company, and the HERO3+ Silver Edition 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: The HERO3+ Silver Edition captures gorgeous 10MP stills at up to 10 frames per second—perfect for fast-action sequences. Time Lapse mode lets you capture a series of photos at 0.5, 1, 2, 5, 10, 30 or 60 second intervals.
  • Enhanced low-light performance: Thanks to a vastly upgraded sensor, the HERO3+ Silver Edition delivers remarkable low-light performance and overall enhanced image quality.
  • Sharper images, less distortion: Enjoy crisper, clearer footage with reduced distortion. The HERO3+ Silver Edition boasts increased image sharpness and a 3x reduction in imaging artifacts.
  • Improved audio: Sound quality is as important as image quality. The HERO3+ Silver Edition features upgraded 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.
  • 30% longer battery life: Featuring a 30% increase in battery life, you can go longer and capture more with the HERO3+ Silver Edition.
  • Control, view, share—4x faster: With 4x faster (1) connectivity to the GoPro App, you can preview content in near real-time (2), and share your photos and videos quicker than ever. The GoPro App makes it easy to control your camera remotely with a smartphone or tablet—plus preview, play back and share your favorite shots via email, text, Facebook®, Instagram™ and more (3). Also enjoy enhanced connectivity to the Wi-Fi Remote (sold separately), which enables control of up to 50 cameras from distances of up to 600’/180m.
