GoPro Hero3 Interview: Not just for Biker Films Anymore

Videomaker by Brian Teal

And you thought it was only used for adventure sports... What the GoPro Hero3 is heading toward and how it is being used within a whole other market.

After hearing about the long awaited release of the new GoPro Hero 3 Black Edition, we at Videomaker were eager to sit down and discuss this exciting new product with GoPro's own David Newman, Senior Director of Software Engineering, and Kevin Bourke of BourkePR. However, we were very surprised and impressed as to where the interview actually went.

Once you think you've seen it all, a new emergence has surfaced with the latest offering from GoPro. Not just limited to weekend adventurers wanting to show their friends how hard they play, the new GoPro Hero3 Black Edition achieves a new level of stature among videophiles and professionals alike. With the new design, the GoPro Hero3 Black Edition offers 12MP photos (up to 30 photos per second), 1080p 60fps, and a wide-angle 1440p 48fps to capture a wider view range, all while reducing any previously criticized fish-eye effects. Because of this, professional videographers are now using multiple GoPro cameras during filming for blockbuster movies as well as capturing action shots during reality television such as Survivor, Mythbusters, Top Gear, and various other television shows; a true device for both consumers and high-end broadcasters.

The GoPro3 is gathering more information than what web or television is able to display. read more...
