GoPro has the sort of cachet in the industry that others can only dream of. It's a name that has become synonymous with action cameras, and the latest version, which comes in three flavours, only looks to reinforce this association even more. After being announced in the US last month, the GoPro will be coming to Australia in just a couple of weeks.

The GoPro Hero 3 will come in black, silver and white editions, with each sporting slightly different internal features:

  • Hero 3 Black Edition: built-in Wi-Fi and the Wi-Fi remote accessory, waterproof housing, 1080p video at 50/48/25/24fps, 12-megapixel still images — AU$489.99

  • Hero 3 Silver Edition: built-in Wi-Fi, 1080p video at 25/24fps, 11-megapixel still images — AU$379.99

  • Hero 3 White Edition: 1080p video at 30fps, 5-megapixel still images — AU$269.99.
