New GoPro Captures Extreme Footage


GoPro cameras are known for their durability and wearability, broadening the filmmaker’s perspective. The company released its latest camera Wednesday, along with an action-packed video that shows extreme perspectives from nearly every element.

The video goes from one extreme sport to another, featuring a number of notable athletes, like Kelly Slater, Tom Wallisch and James Rispoli. All of the footage was filmed on the new edition of the GoPro family, the Hero3.

The Hero3 is the first Wi-Fi-enabled GoPro camera. It’s 30% smaller and 25% lighter than the former model, and according to GoPro, more than twice as powerful.

Check out the video above to see what GoPro’s new camera is capable of.
