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...
