GoPro has released its new HD HERO3 camera line up, with three cameras all significantly smaller than previous models and featuring built-in wifi technology.

The White, Silver and Black editions are available for pre-order and are shipping to retailers around the world for MSRP £199 (White), £279 (Silver) and £359 (Black).

At the top end of the new line up, the  Black edition is 30% smaller, 25% lighter and twice as powerful than previous modelsl. It captures professional, cinema-quality video at 2X the resolution and 2X the frame-rate of previous models and delivers 2X better low light performance. It features 1080p-60, 720p-120, WVGA-240, 960p-100 and 1440p-48 video modes or the ultra-high resolution 2.7kp-24 and 4kp-12 (Protune only) video modes. It is waterproof to 197' (60m).

For photos,  it now has 12MP burst capture at 30 frames per second with 2X better low light performance compared to previous models. Still photo and time-lapse photo modes remain the same but there is also a new continuous photo mode that captures continuous 12MP stills at a steady 3, 5, or 10 photo-per-second rate, up to 30 photos at a time. Its reduced-distortion, 6-element aspherical lens combines with user-selectable Ultra-wide, Medium and Narrow field-of-views to deliver more perspective-capture options than before. It also has an updated flat-lens waterproof housing and a redesigned audio system.

The White edition is also 30% smaller and 25% lighter than its forerunner, the Original HD Hero. It is also waterproof to 197' (60m), and is capable of capturing 1080p 30 fps and 720p 60 fps video, plus 5MP photos at a rate of 3 photos per second. Time-lapse photo capture mode enables automatic photo capture at 0.5, 2, 5, 10, 30 and 60 second intervals.

The White Edition's reduced-distortion lens combines with the redesigned HERO3 flat-lens waterproof housing for use both above and below water. The audio system has also been upgraded.

The Silver edition is also 30% smaller and 25% lighter than its predecessor and waterproof to 197' (60m). It is capable of capturing ultra-wide 1080p 30 fps and 720p 60 fps video, plus 11MP photos at a rate of 10 photos per second. It also features the flat-lens waterproof housing and the audio system has undergone an upgrade.
