Brand new - Still in box.

GoPro has been leading the field in action cameras for a while now, despite spirited attempts by contenders including Ion Air Pro, Swann Freestyle HD and Contour Roam. The Hero 3 is now split into three different flavours — starting with the budget White Edition, then the Silver Edition, and with the Black Edition at the top of the range. This one is the Silver Edition and, according to the spec sheet, it is essentially the HD Hero 2 slimmed down and with Wi-Fi built in, but there have been further refinements that we’ll cover in a bit.

The new case looks similar to the last version but its flat, square lens window solves the problem that the old version had with focus in underwater footage. It also has a slightly raised surround that means you’re less likely to put scratches in it as we did our Hero 2 when mounted to skis. The catch on top is also vastly improved, now with a much more reassuring action and a sprung locking mechanism to keep the sensitive electronic bits safely inside.

The Silver Edition comes with Wi-Fi capability built in, meaning that you no longer have to buy a separate ‘Wi-Fi BacPac’ unit to bolt on the back. This is turned on via the new button on the side and lets you use it with the Wi-Fi remote (sold separately) or with the GoPro App that turns your smartphone into a remote with viewfinder. However, at the time of testing GoPro hadn’t released the firmware update required to connect with the app.

Out of the housing, the camera unit itself is much improved – it now looks like a proper bit of tech, rather than the plasticcy toy of previous iterations. It has a knurled rubber edge and is equipped with bigger, easier-to-push buttons, translating to easier operation with the case on too. In the name of miniaturisation, the SD card slot has been replaced with a Micro SD card slot. A six-element glass lens with 170 degree field of view produces a wide enough picture to capture all the action.
