GoPro, the popular mobile camera that has been used to capture video of everything from spectacular mountain bike crashes to shark encounters under the sea, was at the recent Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas.

GoPro showed off the Hero 3 Black edition, which is 30 percent smaller and 20 percent lighter than the previous model. The new Black Edition has a 12 MP sensor and can shoot 4k at 15 FPS. While shooting video users will also be able to tap a button on the camera to grab a quick still image. There are also dual mics and a photo-burst mode.

The new version will retail for $399 and include a WiFi remote. The camera is available for purchase now.
