Katie from the GoPro booth at CES 2013 gives me the full scoop on the GoPro HERO 3 White, Silver and Black Editions. With so many of my readers asking about all three of the new GoPro HERO 3 Editions, how they compare and how they differ from the GoPro HERO 2, Katie really helps out as she clears the air on which might best serve to suit your action cam needs.
The Wi-Fi Bac Pac and Remote are both compatible with the FREE GoPro App, which is available now. The Black Edition of the GoPro 3 come with the Wi-Fi Remote. You can also remote into your camera via your mobile phone with the GoPro App. Your GoPro WILL need Wi-Fi capabilities for this. All of the 3′s have the Wi-Fi feature, the HERO 2 does not.
Another add-on option to the GoPro HERO 3 is the touch LCD backpack. This option allows the ability to control the camera via touchscreen and also adds a 3.5mm headphone jack. I find this really useful for setting up shots and accessing the menus and viewing my settings quickly.
And last, an exciting feature from GoPro that can be used with both the HERO 3 and 2 is the GoPro CineForm Studio. This firmware offers higher bit-rates and flat cine style image curves that are better suited for post-processing. When you shoot with a very flat color space, you have more latitude to push in post.
