Half Moon Bay, Calif. – GoPro has
introduced the 3D Hero System, a waterproof 3D expansion kit for its 1080p HD Hero
The 3D Hero System is available
and is shipping to GoPro retailers worldwide with a $99.99 suggested retail.
The system has what GoPro called
an industry-first modular design that enables consumers to combine two 1080p HD
Hero cameras to form a single 1080p 3D camera.
Waterproof to 180 feet, the 3D Hero
System can be worn on the body, mounted on gear and vehicles, and used as a
handheld camera. A dual-camera, polycarbonate waterproof housing holds the two
cameras together, and a synchronization cable plugs into the back of each
camera, enabling them to function as a single camera. A single shutter button
controls both cameras.
The 3D Hero System housing is 5
inches in length and 2.5 inches high and is compatible with existing GoPro
The 3D Hero System includes
waterproof housing; synchronization cable; skeleton door, which allows for
optimal sound capture in dry environments; three pairs of 3D anaglyph (red/blue)
glasses; helmet front mount; two flat and two curved adhesive mounts; and a
free download, the GoPro CineForm Studio 3D editing software.
GoPro’s 1080p HD Hero cameras are
not included with the 3D Hero System and are sold separately, starting at $259
