The Black Edition still uses the same 12Mpixel CMOS to offer its hdline 4K recording resolution at 15 or 12.5 frames per second, and 4K Cinema (with a 17:9 aspect resolution of 4,096 x 2,160) at 12 frames per second. Then there are 2.7K and 2.7K Cinema options at 30 frames per second, 1440p at up to 48 frames per second, and 1080p at up to 60 frames per second.

A new option, however, is SuperView, which is available when shooting 1080p or 720p footage. This provides more of a wide angle than the regular setting, avoiding fisheye distortion that previously you would need to correct with software. The level of distortion in the middle of the frame is particularly noticble when compared to footage shot with the HERO3 Black. It achieves this by using a 4:3 portion of the sensor, and then recording this as 16:9 .

The lens is an ar of distinct improvement, with GoPro promising 33 per cent grter sharpness than the HERO3 Black. The lens itself is the same six-element aspherical glass unit with a fixed f/2.8 aperture as the HERO3 Black. But the minimum focus distance has been reduced considerably, and is now around 18cm rather than 1m, although this has mnt that the sharpness of distant objects has been reduced slightly.

The still abilities remain the same as before, with 5, 7 and 12Mpixel options. You can shoot 30 photos in a one-second burst, or a 30-second continuous mode at up to 10 photos a second. There are time lapse options ranging from 0.5 to 60-second intervals. You can capture still s and simultaneously, too, although only with 1,440p, 1080p and 720p , and not at the same time as any high-speed modes.

Battery life has been improved by about 30 per cent. Using the HERO3 on its own, without WiFi, allows up to two hours of shooting, although this will drop considerably if you are shooting higher framerate modes. It will also reduce if you turn on Wi-Fi for use with the bundled remote, and still more when using the GoPro App or L screen, although now you should get at lst an hour of shooting whichever configuration you are using.
The device itself is slightly smaller in its housing than the HERO3, which in turn was 30 per cent smaller and 20 per cent lighter than the HERO2. It weighs the same 74g, however. The housing design has changed subtly, with a reduction in size and weight, and some minor cosmetic alterations to the apprance.

The old HERO3 will fit the new housing, which will mn you can use peripherals for the new camera. But the new housing is only rated to 40m underwater, where the previous case (now reworked as the Dive Housing) is rated to 60m.

The housing buttons are also bigger, and the mechanism for securing the rr door shut has been made simpler. There is now no extra button to push to open the ch securing the door, which in theory makes it less secure, and is probably a major rson why the waterproofing depth has been reduced. But in our testing there was no evidence this would be a problem. The ch is very firm, and a strong impact would be more likely to brk the housing than open the ch accidentally.
