GoPro Hero 3. It appeared in three versions to be able to adapt without problems to the wide variety of market users.
The queen of risk sports (and those who are not) could be achieved in Silver, Black or White version.
The three had a minimalist design without breaking the line of the brand and did not differ practically in anything, visually speaking.

Regarding the previous model there was an increase in dimensions and weight that did not overshadow the reasons for their existence at all.
You were giving us more capacity, functionality and image quality.
One of the novelties brought by the third version of the GoPro was Wifi connectivity that allows us to connect the camera wirelessly to a smartphone or to the official control.
These allowed us to shoot remotely or capture impressive images.
The largest of the versions has 12 MP resolution, the Hero3 +, matching the following model camera
3+ models added improvements to the image. The Black camera has 4K recording and burst mode of up to 30 shots and thanks to its micro HDMI connection we can enjoy our images without having to transfer them to a computer.
All other versions also include in micro HDMI port but not the recording capacity of UHD. The 30 images of the burst mode are also lost, changing to 10 (Silver) with a resolution of 11 MP.
In the menu settings we can choose at what resolution we want to capture the images. Using a very high image quality we will soon have storage problems on our memory card and, possibly, also battery.
