3 Reasons For

GoPro Has Excellent Reviews for Its Camcorders

Based on 2,741 expert and user reviews, GoPro has excellent reviews for its video cameras. GoPro also has excellent reviews specifically for its camcorders.

Full HD

Full HD

The GoPro Hero 3+ is Full HD, unlike most of the other comparable spec camcorders that came out around the same time as the Hero 3+ which are not Full HD.

We think you might also be interested in some of the other Full HD video cameras currently available including a cheaper video camera such as the ee Ee 4GEE Action Camcorder[plb_2962232_price] or you might consider a higher scoring video camera such as the GoPro Hero 4[plb_2666283_price].

If you would prefer a camcorder that is Full HD then you might want to look at the Canon Legria HF R57[plb_2666037_price].

8 Reasons Against

Does Not Have an Image Stabiliser

The Hero 3+ does not have an image stabiliser. Most of the other camcorders of this type and age also do not have an image stabiliser.

We compared this camcorder to all the other video cameras with an image stabiliser and we think the Veho MUVI K-Series K2[plb_2962223_price] is also worth considering.

There are a number of other camcorders which also have an HDMI port which you might want to consider including the Sony PXW-FS7[plb_2829469_price], or the Veho MUVI K-Series K2[plb_2962223_price].

Most video cameras of this age and spec do not have an interchangeable lens. The Hero 3+ is no exception to this as it too does not have an interchangeable lens.

We compared this camcorder to all the other video cameras with an interchangeable lens and we think the Sony PXW-FS7[plb_2829469_price] is also worth considering.
