The GoPro HERO3 is smaller and lighter than its predecessor. It's also Wi-Fi enabled. The HERO3 is designed for recording action sports and it comes with a rugged housing that is waterproof down to a depth of 197' (60 m). The camera captures 4K Cinema, 2.7K Cinema, 1440p and Full HD 1920 x 1080p MP4 video. It also captures 960p, 720p and 480p video as well. Plus, it supports NTSC and PAL, and it can record up to 240 fps. For still images, the HERO3 supports 5, 7 and 12-megapixel photos.

Media Composer, frequently referred to as "The Avid" is wildly used for professional film and video editing. For example, we would like to use Avid Media Composer to edit MP4 media from GoPro, Sony XDCAM EX MP4 camcorder videos, etc. in order to get better videos or more wonderful video files.
