GoPro Hero3 vs. iPhone 5
DxO Labs has released a comparison of the GoPro Hero3 action camera and the advanced iPhone 5 smartphone. Contrasting the rugged, sports-enthusiast-endorsed GoPro with the popular, fragile touchscreen phone is actually quite appropriate as both boast impressive video/photo capturing technology.
The Apple iPhone 5 surpassed the GoPro when it came to taking stills; the iPhone produced more accurate colors with better exposure and contrast. Regarding video recording, however, the GoPro was the clear winner. The Hero 3 HD won in every category except stabilization, which can be forgiven thanks to its ability to capture high-speed videos and its available accessories designed for stabilization errors.
