“The most epic news in GoPro history drops tonight. Ready to be blown away?”

GoPro Hero3 Tease

That’s a quote from GoPro’s Facebook page about a half hour ago.  It has already accumulated over 4000 likes and 700 comments from GoPro fans teeming with excitement.

Recall the recent rumors of the GoPro Hero3.  Again, we have no word on specs at the moment, but it will surely have powerful WiFi features built-in to take advantage of the new GoPro app for smartphone compatibility (which already works with the Hero2).

Likewise, we would expect some resolution and frame rate improvements to (at least) match what Sony has done with its new Action Cams.

Stay tuned for the big news tonight!

UPDATED: Details on the GoPro HERO3 are here.

    Here is a rumor roundup video from YouTube it covers many of the rumors for the rumored GoPro HD HERO3

    “The HD Hero 3 is a huge step ahead of the HD Hero 2. People are going to love these cameras. We will offer three models; the HD Hero 3 White Edition, Silver Edition and Black Edition. We will have three price points, and all three models have WiFi Built into them. They all share a new form factor which is the same rectangular shape (which lends itself to be mounted anywhere, including the Chest), but it’s much thinner than the HD1/ HD2. The HD Hero 3 + Backpack is the size of todays camera by itself. All three models will come shipped with the new housing which incorporates an underwater lens into the housing and an improved locking latch. The camera needs to work as well under the water as above the water since it’s waterproof. We did have to go to the Micro SD Card format since SD Card Trays are way to big for this camera. There are ton of other improvements; I’ll send out a Camera Comparison Sheet once we have that and are allowed to send images.
