GoPro With a New Smaller HERO3+ Cameras, Still No 3D Accessory

I has been about a year since GoPro has announced the HERO3 action camera and now they just announced a new version called GoPro HERO3+ in Black and Silver edition and only the White edition did not get an updated version. The new GoPro Hero 3+ cameras are a bit smaller in size and lighter and offer better battery life and finally glass optics long with faster WiFi. That is essentially what the improvements are, along with some new accessories, however there is still no official 3D camera accessory either for the older HERO3 or for the newer Hero 3+ camera, so apparently official 3D support for GoPro is not on the list of important things to have as a feature. The good thing is that we are seeing various community developed solutions to use two GoPro HERO3 cameras to record 3D video mostly due to the very compact size that a 3D rig using two GoPro cameras can provide. The good thing about the new GoPro HERO3+ cameras is that the solutions used for shooting 3D video with HERO3 will most likely also work, so imagine using a mini 3D mirror rig using two GoPro HERO3+ cameras for shooting stereo 3D…

GoPro HERO3+ Black Edition

    Check GoPro’s website again – they have announced a new 3D holder/connector accessory just in the last few days!! Fits the Hero 3 and Hero 3+.

    I’ll be getting them this summer for sure.
