I don't know if this belongs here but anyway.
I would like to buy a gopro camera and saw the price difference between buying it here in europe or in Brazil is very big. At least online.

Could anybody confirm if you can buy the camera in stores in Brazil and if the prize for the new hero 3 black edition is around 400$ US? And the silver one around 300$ US?

I will be coming to Rio soon so if it is possible to buy it in a store it would certainly be a big price difference for me..

Thanks in advance

Hey Ruben,

Well, bad news for you.

First, GoPro Hero 3 is not legally imported to Brazil yet. Here we can only buy it if someone bring us from USA.

Second, the prizes here are way more expensive than Europe and USA. This price of U$ 400,00 for the black edition is only in USA. The cheapest place I know in Rio where you can buy the Hero 2 (as I told, the Hero 3 still doesn't exist here, legally) is here:

It's R$ 1300,00 what's around U$ 650,00.

Good luck!

Hey Daniel

Bad news indeed..
But are you sure you can't order it yet in Brazil? I tried on the gopro site and they let me order it with a brazilian adress. The shipping costs are quite a lot but the base price is the same..
