GoPro has just launched its new HERO3+ cameras, which essentially improve on its already impressive HERO3 compact cameras. In line with this, the company has updated its official iOS app to support the new devices.

GoPro’s new HERO3+ line is led by the HERO3+ Black Edition:

Capture and share your life’s most meaningful experiences with the HERO3+ Black Edition. 20% smaller and lighter than its best-selling predecessor, it delivers improved image quality and powerful new features geared for versatility and convenience. SuperViewâ„¢ is a new video mode that captures the world’s most immersive wide angle perspective, while Auto Low Light mode intelligently adjusts frame rate for stunning low-light performance. Combined with 30% longer battery life, faster built-in Wi-Fi and a sharper lens, the HERO3+ Black Edition is the most advanced GoPro yet.

You can see the HER03+ Black Edition in action in the video below. And I do implore you to watch the video because it is truly awesome.

GoPro’s HERO3+ line also includes the HERO3+ Silver Edition, which is said to be twice as powerful as the HERO3 Silver Edition.

Both the HERO3+ Black Edition and the HERO3+ Silver Edition are now available at GoPro.com and at select retailers for $399.99 and $299.99, respectively.

As mentioned, the new HERO3+ cameras are now compatible with the newly updated GoPro App for iOS. As a result, you can now use GoPro App to preview video in near real-time for HERO3+ cameras. Also, you can now control the HERO3+ Black Edition’s advanced camera settings, including SuperView, Auto Low Light, and 2.7K Medium FOV Video.

Also including a new option for updating a connected camera’s Wi-Fi network name and password, the new version of GoPro App is available now in the App Store for free. The app is compatible with iPhone, iPod touch, and iPad running iOS 6.0 or later.

And just to reiterate: please do yourself a favor and make sure to watch the video, which, as I’ve said, is truly awesome.
