The rumours of GoPro launching a new camera before Christmas have been confirmed! Most of those rumours have been talking about a GoPro Hero 4 being launched but instead of jumping to a new level GoPro have knuckled down and focused on improving their already-awesome Hero 3 model and launching the new and improved Hero 3+ camera.

What’s new about the GoPro Hero 3+ Black Edition?

  • The battery life has been extended by a further 30%
  • A new auto low light mode which greatly improves the indoor and night time image quality 
  • The new sharper lens gives 33% better image sharpness 
  • Yet again, the microphone has been improved to give even better sound 
  • The Hero 3+ gives the option to film in Super View which combines wide screen and tall screen for the ultimate HD screen size

The new smaller waterproof case is waterproof down to 40m whereas the previous Hero 3 models came with a 60m waterproof case. As the camera itself is the exact same size a diver wanting to go down to 60m can just use the original Hero 3 waterproof case with their 3Plus Hero camera.

The new GoPro 3+ Battery is also the same size as the battery for the previous Hero 3 which is good news for Hero 3 users wanting to buy the 3+ Battery as they can use it seamlessly with their GoPro.
