GoPro’s mobile app is now available for use with GoPro HERO3 cameras. The app lets you control your HERO3 cameras’ settings + features. Additionally, you can live preview your shots for easier framing.
A software update for the HERO3 White and Silver Edition cameras is required before using the GoPro app. You can find that update here on GoPro’s website.

You can download the new app here at the Google Play Store.
If you’ve ever had a cat, you’ve almost certainly spent an abnormal amount of time with a laser pointer in your hand as the cat chased it in futility. GoPro used some cats and laser pointers to show off its new GoPro HERO3 cameras and their powerful slow motion capabilities in its latest commercial, which you can see below.
The new GoPro HERO3: Black Edition serves as the flagship of the new lineup with up to 1440p at 48fps, 1080p at 60fps and 720p at 120fps, all of which aid in the slow motion prowess of the new camera.
B&H has the new GoPro HERO3 Silver Edition camera in stock and shipping. Check it out here at B&H Photo.
