GoPro, maker of the world’s most versatile camera and enabler of some of today’s most engaging user-generated content, announces the release of HERO3+® Black Edition/Music, a musician-focused version of its best-selling HERO3+ Black Edition camera.
The HERO3+ Black Edition/Music makes it easy for musicians and DJs to mount the camera to instruments, turntables, mic stands, and other stage equipment to capture immersive GoPro-style footage and unique points of view. Artists can also use the GoPro App on a mobile device to control the camera if it’s mounted out of reach, while GoPro’s free editing software, GoPro Studio, makes it easy to edit professional looking videos for self-promotion on YouTube™, Facebook®, Instagram™ and other platforms.
Instead of the waterhousing that is traditionally bundled with all GoPro cameras, the HERO3+ Black Edition/Music comes with The Frame, GoPro’s sleekest, lowest-profile camera mounting solution and the smallest, lightest way to mount a HERO3+ camera when waterproof protection isn’t required. The Frame provides easy access to all ports and full exposure to the camera’s microphone, delivering a superior audio recording performance. Along with The Frame, other new accessories packaged in HERO3+ Black Edition/Music include:
Removable Instrument Mount: An easy-to-remove, non-damaging adhesive mount that makes it easy to mount the camera to guitars, drums, turntables, keyboards and other instruments.
Mic Stand Mount: Convenient mount for attaching the camera to a mic stand. Compatible with standard U.S. 5/8”-27 mic stands. Includes an adapter for European 3/8”-16 mic stands.
Jaws: Flex Clamp: Opposable flex clamp that simplifies mounting the camera to cymbal stands, drum hardware, turntables and more. The opposable and removable neck delivers a wide range of camera-angle adjustability, and can be attached to the other included mounts for increased versatility.
The HERO3+ Black Edition/Music captures professional production quality photos and video in the challenging low light environments that musicians and DJs are accustomed to. Artists can now self-capture stunning video up to 2.7K and stills up to 12MP wherever they may be performing. The HERO3+ camera’s ultra wide-angle, low-distortion lens captures expansive images ideal for music performances, and built-in Wi-Fi enables artists to control their camera via the GoPro App running on their mobile device or using GoPro’s Wi-Fi Remote (sold separately). The HERO3+ Black Edition/Music was also engineered to last as long as the jam, recording up to 2 hours of video footage at 1080p at 30 frames per second. The camera also records impressive audio with a built-in microphone and features an external mic input and a 3.5mm mic adapter, allowing for the use of external microphones.
