I liked that video so much, I had to watch it twice. I kept looking for time lapse footage. Was it there or did I miss it again? In any case it was all shot with the GoPro Hero3+.
The GoPro HERO3+ Black Edition primary improvements include:
- 20% smaller in the underwater housing, lighter too and waterproof to 131’/40m.
- 33% improved image sharpness and reduced distortion
- Faster built in Wi-Fi for enhanced connectivity to the Wi-Fi Remote (included) and GoPro App
- Super View video mode captures wide angle view. GoPro claims this is the world’s most immersive wide angle perspective, but I doubt the part about world’s most
- 30% longer battery life. This is a welcome improvement as previous models go through batteries quickly.

Another says that with that many frames it’s easy to produce slower motion by using a slower time line using their included software.
