GoPro Hero3+ Black Edition

 

Though the updates might seem minor on paper, the GoPro Hero3+ is most definitely more than the sum of its parts, proving that it's still the king of action cameras.

Smaller waterproof casing, with buttons that are easier to press ; More mounting options than ever ; Improved auto white balance, with the option to adjust it yourself ; Fast Wi-Fi ; Improved sound recording

4K recording is only at 15p ; Waterproof casing latch can be hard to open

While the updates to the bestselling Hero camera may not seem like a lot, the Hero3+ is definitely greater than the sum of its parts. It's the small things that make a big difference — faster Wi-Fi, a longer-lasting battery and better white balance...

GoPro Hero 3

 

The GoPro Hero 3 Silver and White editions are strong contenders in the sports-camera market, but the faster, more powerful Black Edition is head and shoulders the best sports camera on the market today.

Smaller, lighter than previous Hero 2 ; Built-in Wi-Fi ; Black Edition offers a number of ultra-high-resolution capture modes and high frame rates for standard HD resolutions ; Burst speeds for still photos has been greatly improved

Control scheme has a longer learning curve than the Contour cameras ; Only 15fps on 4K video renders this selling point mostly moot for action videography
