We Found a GoPro Hero 3 Killer… The GoPro Hero 3+

To be perfectly honest, the GoPro Hero 3 Black Edition is way ahead of most, if not all, other action cameras on the market. Well it appears that GoPro doesn’t know how to quit while they’re ahead, creating their own competition by releasing the GoPro Hero 3+. GoPro listened to the feedback from thousands of people that already use and love the Hero 3 and created a product that probably won’t be de-throwned until the company gets restless again.

Why is the NEW GoPro Hero 3+ better than the OLD GoPro Hero 3?

GoPro never fails to make promotional videos that make my heart pump and my eyes water. I can’t seem to look away from the screen yet I’ve never wanted to jump out of my computer chair and onto my bike more. I don’t know how GoPro makes their videos so mind-blowingly awesome. They must shoot them with some fancy camera or something.

Shot entirely on a Go Pro Hero 3+ Black Edition… woah.
