There’s a few perks to being a team rider for GoPro. One of which would be getting the brand new Hero 3 before anyone else. Mike Escamilla is one of the lucky guys who got to put it to work already and he got plenty of good use out of it. Check out this video of him getting some riding time in and doing some sky diving and base jumping. This is rad!
Just when I’m about to drop a review of the HD Hero 2 with the new wi-fi pack and iPhone app, GoPro goes and ups themselves by announcing the new HD Hero 3 which comes in 3 versions, white, silver and black. I guess this version is smaller than the previous and obviously has even higher quality than before. It’s amazing how far technology has come…
Here’s the official press release.
“SAN MATEO, CA (October 17, 2012) – GoPro, maker of the world’s most versatile and durable cameras and producer of today’s most engaging content announces the release of its new HD HERO3 camera line up in White, Silver and Black editions. Each new edition retains the iconic look of the previous award winning HD HERO cameras but comes in at about half the size of its predecessors and has built-in Wi-Fi technology. At the top end of the new product line up, the HD HERO3 Black Edition is one of the most powerful camera systems available, delivering astounding 4K and 2.7K video resolutions all in the size of a small box of matches, making it easier to share your world.

Who’s getting one?
Holy hell. You cannot deny that this place looks fun as hell!

Ondra Slez recently pulled out his GoPro to film a session at his local park. He ended up coming through with a bunch of damn good clips that you won’t want to miss in this new video.
Mike Escamilla goes on a little solo mission to hit up a full pipe he’s had on his shit list for the last 15 years. He brought along a few GoPro cameras to document that adventure since he apparently doesn’t have any friends. I want to ride this spot!
“Shot 100% on the HD HERO2® camera from GoPro.com.
Mike “Rooftop” Escamilla fulfills his long time dream of riding a mysterious fullpipe in the middle of nowhere. Ride along with Mike as he captures photos and video of his BMX adventure – shot 100% by Mike himself using his GoPro Wi-Fi BacPac & Remote control.”
If you happened to see Big Air during the X-Games last week, there’s a chance you might have seen this clip from GoPro of Chad Kagy. They had him strap a couple of their cameras to him to give you an idea of what it’s like to run the Mega Ramp. That’s some scary shit.
