GoPro Hero3 Silver vs. Hero3+ Silver While looking at this new camera, I’m also going to focus on my comparison between the GoPro Hero3 Silver and the new Hero3+ Silver. What’s different, how does it work on its own, is it worth an upgrade? Let’s find out.OUT OF THE BOXFirst out is the camera, as it’s nicely mounted in the glass container at the top of the box. It’s already obvious the new housing for the Hero3+ is noticeably smaller and more compact than the older one. The housing buttons are larger and easier to press, but everything else was downsized. The latch no longer requires an extra tab to slide over, yet still feels very secure and tight when closed. The front covering over the lens has become simplified as there are no longer rivets or a large bezel adding to bulk.There is some concern this could reduce durability, but short of throwing it into a wall, I’m going to just base this on look and feel. Which is to say it appear to be just a solid and durable as the old one…

Great camera with two deal-breaking issues (for me) GPH3+ Silver Edition (1.09 firmware):I’m writing this review in a rather disappointed mood. I bought this camera for both action shoots and time-lapse no-scope astro-photography.Some Observations:* The camera is tiny: much smaller and lighter than the pictures would let you believe. It comfortably sits on the palm of your hand.* Wi-Fi is a battery vampire. In my tests, it will cut published battery life in about half. And unless you have the live view BackPack, you are going to need it together with the GoPro app.* Without a heavy investment on accessories/harnesses/handles/leashes, you will find yourself with a $300 paperweight, for all action videography intents and purposes.* The ultra-wide has quite a bit of barrel distortion at the edges, but this is normal for this type of lens.The disappointment:As mentioned above, I had two purposes in mind for this camera: 1) I wanted a good under-water and action/rugged…

Excellent addition to any camera arsenal. The GoPro Hero 3+ camera is a nifty little device. It fits easily in the palm of your hand, or in a pocket, but don’t let the size fool you. This camera is big on the inside! Its simple point and shoot function is improved by an excellent wireless app for mobile devices that expands on its function making editing and transfer of images simple and flawless.The extreme wide angle lens captures anything in front of it – the inherent distortion of the lens can be countered by using the excellent lens profiles available for Adobe Photoshop and Lightroom -The Hero 3+ Silver edition includes a tough housing, waterproof and durable, which allows for a myriad of mounting options, from head and chest straps to tripod heads and adhesive mounts.I’ve been using mine for a week and although the hardware has worked flawlessly, I have had problems with my camera’s wireless connection. The problem was easily solved, but be aware that the mobile app is not 100% reliable…
