The Hero cameras have always been awesome and great value, but the latest generation look seriously good, especially the Black Edition with it’s waterproof remote, simultaneous video and 12 megapixel photo mode, that can manage a 30 frame burst mode.
More details from The Verge…
The Hero3 line is in three models: the Black Edition, priced at $399, the $299 Silver Edition, and the White Edition, available for $199. All three can shoot video at 1080p — like GoPro’s HD Hero2 — though the Black Edition takes things one step further, allowing you to record 4K and 2.7K video. Doing so, it’s worth noting, will drop your frame rate to just 15fps for 4K and 30fps for 2.7K, though the Black Edition does support 1440p, 1080p, 720p, and WVGA at frame rates between 24fps and 120fps.
If you’re doing any traveller, just get one. Its that simple!
