GoPro shipws 3D Hero accessory for $100
GoPro on Monday released an add-on for its 1080p HD Hero camera. Called the 3D Hero System, it attaches to the 1080p camera to create a system capable of recording 3D images. Included is a polycarbonate, waterproof housing that holds the newly formed device that uses a single shutter button to control both cameras.
Also bundled with the add-on is a synchronization cable, three pairs of anaglyph glasses and a helmet mount. Two flat and two curved adhesive mounts are also present. A skeleton door built into the case allows for better microphone reception in dry environments. As a bonus, users get a free download of GoPro's CineForm Studio 3D editing software.
The 3D kit costs $100 and requires a 1080p HD Hero camera that is available separately for $260.
