GoPro 3D Hero

The Sell: DIY 3-D video.

The Test: Like the HD Hero cameras it ­houses inside, the 3D Hero System—a waterproof case with a sync cable—is difficult to master. Do so, though, and you’ll be amazed by what you see. We merged our 1080p videos (and 5-mp stills) using the conversion software and then donned our 3-D glasses. The results? Pretty damn cool.

The Verdict: Complicated, but a great first foray into 3-D. Video Quality: 4. Ease of Use: 2.5.

Brand: GoPro $640
