GoPro Hero3+ Silver Edition review

 

The best action cam to buy isn't always the most expensive and feature packed, as this GoPro proves

Best value GoPro of the range ; Smooth 1080p footage @60fps ; Wider range of mounts than other brands ; Matchbox design squeezes into small spaces

Screen is £80 extra ; Main unit is vulnerable when not in waterproof housing ; Tiny buttons, fiddly in use

Not the most user-friendly, but certainly the best value action cam out there

GoPro Hero3+ Silver Edition review: GoPro design, solid HD video

 

As the highest-end model in GoPro's camera lineup, the Hero3+ Black Edition gets all the attention. At $299, however, the Hero3+ Silver Edition is the one more people will consider buying.

The GoPro Hero3+ Silver Edition combines excellent HD video with recording options up to 1080p at 60fps and the same design as the company's other cameras so you have access to a large selection of accessories and mounts.

The $100 savings from the Black Edition costs you many shooting options and some video quality, particularly in low light. Battery life can be brief depending on the features you're using. Plan to buy accessories, including a microSD card.

If you like GoPro's camera design and just want solid HD video, you might be able to save yourself $100 and get this instead of the $400 Black Edition.

Small camera, big possibilities.

 

The GoPro 3+ is a solidly built professional camera that can stand up to a lot of harsh activities. The picture quality is amazing and can be adjusted for whatever you need to record. The microphone quality is okay but it can't pick much up in a fully...
