GoPro Hero3 Black

GoPro's Hero3 Black Edition is easily one of the most interesting video cameras of the year—and not only within the helmet-cam category. If you were hoping for big advances in video imaging, here they are, and they are impressive indeed: an advanced sensor capable of shooting 1080P footage at 60 frames per second, or 2.7K Cinema at 30 frames per second, or an incredible 4K picture at 15 frames per second, all of it captured using an innovative hybrid RAW codec called Protune.
