GoPro Announces New Faster & Smaller HD Hero3

GoPro launched their new HD Hero3 with this video, which was filmed entirely on the new device.

This is what I wish our POV films looked like. Maybe I need to get one?

Overall I am impressed by how great the videos look especially compared to the HD Hero that I have. GoPro has seemingly eliminated the annoying fisheye effect!

The Black edition retails for $399 and is described as

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. Wearable and gear mountable, waterproof to 197′ (60m), capable of capturing ultra-wide 1440p 48fps, 1080p 60 fps and 720p 120 fps video and 12MP photos at a rate of 30 photos per second, the HERO3: Black Edition is the world’s most versatile camera. Built-in Wi-Fi, GoPro App compatibility and the included Wi-Fi Remote (normally a separate $79.99 accessory) make the HERO3: Black Edition all the more versatile, still.

There are also a White Edition and a Silver Edition that cost $199 and $299, respectively, that have fewer features than the Black Edition. You can preorder now and expect shipping in mid November.

What do you think? Is this going on your Christmas list?
