GoPro Hero3: Black Edition

Available Today

The default WiFi password on our GoPros is “lensrentals”. If that password isn’t working with the camera, you will need to re-install the firmware so you can set up your own password. To do so, you will need a computer. Follow this link for the firmware update, and instructions. We understand this may be inconvenient, and are working on a better solution. In the meantime, please plan accordingly.

The Wi-Fi enabled HERO3: Black Edition is 30% smaller, 25% lighter and has twice the low light ability of the HERO 2. The HERO 3: Black offers enhanced 2.7K (30fps) and 4K (15fps) shooting modes, while providing full HD video capture, still shooting, and time-lapse modes.

Waterproof Housing. The HERO3 waterproof enclosure offers enhanced durability and the ability to shoot at depths up to 190ft. The newly improved flat-front lens on the housing allows sharp image quality above and below water.

Wide Field Of View. An ultra wide field of view of 170° gives this camcorder great vantage in tight spaces as well as a wide depth of field; ensuring the image you capture is clear. Normal and narrow field of view modes are offered but not recommended as they are achieved through a sensor crop.

Wi-fi Capable. Download the GoPro app to control the camera via your smartphone, or use the provided wi-fi remote.

Please Note: The HERO3 is not compatible with all of our GoPro accessories. We’ve made clear notes at the top of each page, but if you have any doubt, please ask first! We will not issue a refund if you order the wrong item!
