GoPro today announced a collection of accessories and software designed to provide users with new ways to capture more unique shots and easily edit and share video and images. GoPro HERO3+ and HERO3 users can get excited about a number of new housing and mount options including a matte-finish housing, compact frame and versatile flex mount. The stealth Blackout Housing delivers low-profile shooting, featuring a non-reflective black matte finish and LCD concealment stickers to ensure low visibility and eliminate light reflections. Two additional accessories, Gooseneck and The Frame, are designed for maximum ease of use and greater versatility in shooting. For more advanced shooting, the Dual HERO System will enable HERO3+ Black Edition users to record synchronized 2D videos and convert to 3D files using the free GoPro Studio editing software. The Dual HERO System will also allow users to simultaneously capture video with one camera and shoot time-lapse photos with the second. For those who like snorkeling and diving, the brand has also announced a new Dive Housing that’s waterproof up to 197 feet (60 meters).
Improvements to camera software unlock a number of new modes to give HERO3+ Black users greater control of capture settings, including new SuperView modes at 1080/60 and 1080/50, as well as new Auto Low Light modes that support higher frame rates. Additionally, new Protune settings offer new customization options, enabling users to manage color, ISO limit, sharpness and exposure in addition to white balance. HERO3+ Silver users will also enjoy a wider field of view in all camera modes with the new software update. Several of the new products are now available at GoPro’s online store with the remaining items arriving later this spring.
