  • 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.

  • Kelly Slater joins the Go Pro team!

    We're excited about the news Kelly Slater has joined the Go Pro team! Seriously looking forward to checking out the footage he films (and pretending we can do better!!).

    c/o Go Pro: GoPro, maker of the world’s most versatile cameras and producer of some of today’s most engaging content, is excited to welcome 11 time Association of Surfing Professionals (ASP) World Champion, Kelly Slater, to its team of athletes.

    “I’m stoked. I’ve had a lot of fun with the GoPro camera and in just the few sessions I’ve had so far with it, I’ve gotten more images than I have in a long time,” said Kelly Slater.

    Slater has dominated the sport for two decades, becoming both the youngest (at age 20), and the oldest (at age 39) surfer to win the ASP title. He joins GoPro’s team of surf athletes that include Mark Healey, Alana Blanchard, Sunny Garcia, Jamie Sterling, Kelia Moniz, Harley Ingleby, Monyca Byrne Wickey, Hughes Oyarzabel, Anthony Walsh, Kalani Chapman and Chuck Patterson.

    “Working with Kelly takes me back to why I started GoPro,” says GoPro’s Founder and CEO, Nicholas Woodman. “We began as a wrist camera for surfing company with a vision to help the average surfer capture photos that made him or her look like a pro…like Kelly Slater. Now GoPro is helping Kelly, himself, capture and share his own experience with fans around the world and it’s blowing my mind. I guess this whole GoPro thing is kind of working out…”

    In addition to competing on the ASP world tour, Kelly spends much of his time traveling the globe in search of the best surf. Photos and videos captured by Kelly during his travels will be broadcast on The GoPro Network at GoPro.com, GoPro’s Facebook page and on GoPro’s YouTube Channel.

    Check out his 'welcome to the team' You Tube video from this link : http://youtu.be/fjoF55NAo_c

  • Hawaii surfer reunited with GO PRO camera after a year!

    A Hawaiian surfer is reunited with a lost Go Pro camera after a YEAR! Dennis Curry lost the Go Pro action camera (which he had borrowed from a friend) a year ago while surfing when a strong wave took it out, along with his watch that also broke off. He later found the watch in a reef, but had written off ever finding the camera.

    A year down the line Army Chaplain Don Eubank was returning from a night dive and noticed the case of the Go Pro washed up on South Shore of Oahu. Amazingly, despite being under water for such a length of time, the camera still worked and Eubank discovered 51 video clips of a mystery guy surfing.

    He posted a screenshot of the guy in the clips on Craigslist and was contacted by Robin Bond Jr, wanting to help with the search to find the mystery surfer in the videos. With an extensive friend list of surfers on Facebook, Bond posted a plea out on his profile and within hours the photo had been matched up to Dennis Curry.

    Reunited with the camera he never expected to see again, Curry vows to use a leash and floatation device (Go Pro Floaty Back Door) next time he takes out the camera for a surf!
