By Posted 7 Oct 2013, 11:01

The GoPro Hero3+ Black Edition is a the new instalment from the Go Pro collection and today we are looking at this product being unboxed for a first look, along with a visual impression of what is contained within the packaging. According to reports some significant changes have been made compared to the previous version, so we are intrigued to know exactly what is on offer.

From the video embedded below this article we get the impression this version is 20% smaller than the previous edition and contains up to 30% more battery life. While the informative video stops just short of 12 minutes this is the ideal way to get a visual perspective of what’s inside the box and other improvements mentioned like the notion that the GoPro Hero3+ is 4 times faster when using the WiFi connection.

The YouTube video comes courtesy of Geekanoids and discusses how much lighter and smaller this is as well as the new SuperView wide angle and auto low light mode which comes with sharper optics. While some may say that the only size reduction here is the waterproof case that has been shrunk to fit the camera more snuggly, others may find this a vast improvement on the previous version.

In a recent article we discussed the previous GoPro HERO3 4K camera and mentioned how good the new 4K video looks, highlighting the arrival of this new product and its new hardware and software improvements. The new GoPro HERO 3+ camera upgrade is explained for those looking to upgrade, documenting the 4K video quality as well as the powerful photo capture of the 12MP stills and fast-action sequences at 30FPS.

Expected to be under £360 in the UK we are also interested to know if you will be intending to upgrade your current version to the new GoPro Hero3+ Black Edition?
