GoPro has announced the immediate availability of of their new HERO3+ lineup. It includes new Black and Silver models, which feature a 20% smaller and lighter design and 30% increase in battery life. The new GoPro+ models also include an improved lens and convenient new shooting modes. The GoPro HERO cameras have become the gold standard for action enthusiasts everywhere to capture and share their adventures:

In addition to being the best-selling camera globally in consumer markets*, GoPro’s HERO3 camera has also been the best-selling camera to professional production companies, on a volume basis. The National Academy of Television Arts & Sciences recently awarded the HERO3 camera an Emmy for its contributions to filmmaking and television production.

Along with the new cameras, GoPro is releasing new accessories that will make it even easier for users to bring their GoPros wherever the action may take them. Some of the new mounts and accessories include:

  • Jaws: Flex Clamp – A quick way to clamp your GoPro camera to a variety of objects. Use the optional opposable neck to achieve a wide range of camera positioning and adjustability. Jaws securely grips irregular shapes and super slim objects thanks to its innovative design.
  • Junior Chesty (Chest Harness) – A smaller version of our adult-sized Chest Harness. Perfect for kids ages 3+, the Junior Chest Harness is great for capturing immersive footage of a child’s world from their perspective—from skiing and skateboarding to slides and swings.
  • Headstrap + QuickClip – The QuickClip is a new accessory that now comes bundled with GoPro’s Headstrap. The QuickClip enables ultra-compact, low-profile mounting to baseball hats, belts and other objects ranging in thickness from 3mm to 10mm.

GoPro is also shipping GoPro Studio 2.0, free software for the Mac or PC that allows GoPro enthusiasts to easily edit and share their favorite footage. The new GoPro HERO3+ Black Edition is available now for $400, while the HERO3+ Silver Edition will set you back $300. Both models are currently in-stock at Amazon and ready to ship free. If you don’t find the new features compelling enough to shell out retail price, you can grab a previous generation GoPro HERO3 Black Edition for just $330. You can even save a few bucks off retail for the new mounts and accessories by purchasing through Amazon.
