  • "Hidden City of Heroes" a GoPro Film

    Monday saw the official UK launch of the new GoPro Hero 3 at Red Bull Studios, London. Ortis Deley of The Gadget Show fame was on hand to tell the assembled masses all about the GoPro Hero 3, as well as to unveil a new short film, shot exclusively on GoPro cameras that was commissioned by Madison for the UK launch of the Hero 3

     

     

     

    The film, entitled ‘Hidden City of Heroes’, was created by Vertigo Films, the iconic British film makers behind the new box office hit 'The Sweeney'. ‘Hidden City of Heroes’ takes you on a high speed journey across London through the lens of a GoPro. The edit takes in everything from iconic landmarks, to the lives of commuters around the city. Check out the “on deck” footage at the Southbank – We have sold all our Go Pro Black Editions already and are now taking orders for delivery mid November… roll on! 

     

     

     

    This film was created exclusively for the event and was shot entirely on GoPro cameras and features the latest addition to the GoPro UK athlete roster, Korahn Gayle. 

  • Go Pro Hero3 has arrived!

    If you thought the Go-Pro HD Hero 2 was unreal, here's something to blow your mind! Go Pro have released the HD Hero3 and it's INCREDIBLE!

    Ok, so what's the big deal about this Go Pro Hero 3? Well, in short it's smaller, lighter and 2X more powerful, again. The Wi-Fi enabled Go-Pro HERO3: Black Edition is the most advanced GoPro, ever. No expense was spared during its development, resulting in a GoPro that is 30% smaller, 25% lighter and 2x more powerful than previous models.

    Smaller, Lighter... Better
    Weighing in at a scant 2.6 ounces, the HERO3: Black Edition is 25% lighter and 30% smaller than previous models.

    2X Faster Video Performance
    The Go Pro HERO3: Black Edition captures professional, cinema-quality video at 2X the resolution and 2X the frame-rate of previous models while delivering 2X better low light performance. Slow-motion aficionados and industry professionals will love the HERO3: Black Edition's 1080p-60, 720p-120, WVGA-240, 960p-100 and 1440p-48 high frame-rate video modes while those desiring a cinematic look will appreciate the ultra-high resolution 2.7kp-30 and 4kp-15 video modes.

    3X Faster Photo Performance
    The Go Pro HERO3: Black Edition's photo performance is 3X faster, now boasting 12MP burst capture at a staggering 30 frames per second with 2X better low light performance compared to previous models. Still Photo and Time-lapse Photo modes remain the same but are joined by a new Continuous Photo mode that captures continuous 12MP stills at a steady 3, 5, or 10 photo-per-second rate, up to 30 photos at a time. And for those that like pulling still images from video, 4kp15 video mode captures 8+MP video at 15 frames per second making it perfect for pulling still images from video.

    Sharper Lens, Less Distortion
    The HERO3's reduced-distortion, 6-element aspherical lens combines with user-selectable Ultra-wide, Medium and Narrow field-of-views to deliver more perspective-capture options than ever before. Add the totally updated flat-lens waterproof housing that delivers stunning image sharpness both above and below water and you've got one of the most powerful and durable image capture solutions on the planet.

    Updated Audio System
    Understanding that sound quality sound is as important as image quality, GoPro engineers completely redesigned the Go Pro HERO3's audio system to be as adept at capturing the subtle, natural sounds of voice and music as it is at capturing the immersive sounds of sport. Also improved is GoPro's already famous wind-noise reduction, ensuring that you'll hear more of your passion, be it your engine or expletives, and less of the wind during high speed activities.
