Gopro hero 3 sensor
The 12-megapixel Sony IMX117 image sensor can be easily detached from the motherboard, but not before removing some tape, four screws, and an additional connector. Inside the camcorder you can find a 1050mAh 3.7 V battery, which is 50mAh smaller than the one found inside the previous generation. In order to tear apart the Hero3, a user will need a heat gun or a hair dryer, metal spudger, Phillips #0 screwdriver, plastic opening tools, an extra regular spudger, tweezers, and T4 Torx screwdriver.
Still, the GoPro Hero3 performed better than other camcorders and iFixit was pleased with the final result. The purpose of this action is to give users an idea of what is inside the assembled package and how easy it is to repair the camcorder or to replace some of is parts, if the owners somehow manage to break the device.
A special adhesive is keeping together the front cover, while four 8.1mm T4 Torx screws are keeping the midframe in place. The successor of the highly-popular Hero2 is called Hero3 and the camcorder has finally received the teardown treatment from iFixit.
Once the owner has the required tools to dismantle this camcorder, he can begin tearing this thing apart, following the footsteps of the iFixit team.
