GoPro Hero4 Black & Silver Editions

GoPro today unveiled their most advanced wearable video cameras. The new HERO4 line consists of the 4K Black Edition ($500) and 1080p Silver Edition ($400) with touch displays. In addition,  the company is releasing an entry-level $130 action camcorder just called HERO, which can capture high-quality 1080p video at 30fps and 720p video at 60fps.

HERO4 Black Edition delivers 2x the performance of its best-selling predecessor and now captures cinema-quality 4K video at 30 frames per second (fps), 2.7K video at 50fps and 1080p video at a blistering 120fps, virtually eliminating rolling shutter in most scenarios while allowing for time-bending slow motion effects. HERO4 Black also features an entirely redesigned audio system that captures high fidelity sound with 2x the dynamic range of previous models. Additional enhancements include improved image quality, low light performance, highlight moment tagging and an improved user interface that allows for easier discoverability and access to key features and controls.

  • Incredible ultra high definition 4K video at 30fps allows for life-like video capture as well the ability to extract 8.3 megapixel video stills to use as photos
  • Faster high resolution frame rates of 2.7K at 50fps and 1080p at 120fps
  • 12MP magazine cover-quality photos at burst speeds of 30 photos per second
  • Updated user-interface with improved discoverability and access to key camera controls
  • 50% faster Wi-Fi combined with Bluetooth delivers enhanced GoPro App performance and improved power management

“A common pain-point is deciding between capturing video or photos of an experience,” remarked Woodman. “Each frame of 4K30 video is similar to an 8.3 megapixel photo. The result is that users can simultaneously capture eye-popping 4K30 video and impressive 8.3 megapixel photo-like video stills at 30 frames per second when using HERO4 Black. It’s one of the many wild capabilities of this impressive new device.”

HERO4 Silver Edition delivers the same professional image quality as HERO4 Black less some of the higher performance video capture modes including 4K30, 2.7K50 and 1080p120. HERO4 Silver includes a brilliant built-in touch display for those who value convenience and ease-of-use over the no-holds-barred performance of the HERO4 Black.
