The WiFi-enabled Hero3 Black may be roughly half the size and 25 percent lighter than the Hero2, but its upgraded resolution, fps rates, and photo modes are meaty. It shoots 15fps with 4k Cinematic (works for slow-pan shots), but running 1080p at 60fps is the real killer – on rainy rides, the Black caught everything more clearly than any other cam. Bonus: It snaps still shots while recording video. [$400; gopro.com]
