If motion isn't your thing, the Go Pro Hero 3 Black Edition Surf also acts as a still camera which takes high quality 12 megapixel still images with every press of the button. Or you can get a burst of high quality pictures at a staggering 30 frames per second. The HD Hero 3 supports time lapse photography, taking a photo every .5 second with a Class 10 speed microSD card. But what is great video without sound? GoPro has redesigned the audio system on the Hero 3 to improve wind-noise reduction and capture those subtle, natural sounds of voice and music. Encased in a durable polycarbonate exoskeleton, the Hero is built to take a thrashing. Change the open back to the included waterproof backing and the HD3 is waterproof down to 197 feet! Now with a flat lens cover on the Hero3's housing, no matter the field of view you select, there's less frame distortion than on previous GoPro models.
Gone are the Wi-Fi Bacpacs of old, as the GoPro Hero3 Black Edition now has WiFi built in! That means you can use the included Wi-Fi remote to remotely control your GoPro without ever touching it, even underwater! Or if you have an Android or iOS device, you can download an app to control the camera and preview what you're shooting. This GoPro system comes with a surfboard mount that keeps the camera on a board or kayak wave after wave. Like its predecessor, the housing of this video camera is compatible with all other GoPro mounts, so whatever situation you want to capture video from, be it the hood of a jeep on a bumpy trail, the handlebars of a bike as you race down a mountain, or to capture the sunset from your wrist, there's a way to do it. Whether your goal is to capture yourself carving a sick wave or just a casual day on the big blue, record your world like never before with the GoPro HD Hero 3 Black Edition Surf Video Camera.
