GoPro Hero 4 has two variants- silver and classic black.
GoPro Hero 4 is the camera for the adrenaline junkies who love to document their adventures. It is portable and handy, which makes it easy to carry and access. Apart from being compact and portable, GoPro Hero 4 has a great battery life that enables the user to record for up to two hours and more.
The camera allows recording at 4K resolution, with a speed of 30 frames per second. GoPro Hero 4 is expected to have 1080p at 120fps (classic black variant) and 720p at 240fps (silver variant) with a 13 megapixel photo sensor. The 13MP photo sensor enables users to take videos and photos in poorly lit and dark areas. It also has Wi-Fi and Bluetooth and Protune for photos and videos.
GoPro Hero 4 will be highly approved by water sport enthusiasts as it is expected to be water resistant, allowing users to capture underwater activities with precision. GoPro Hero 4 will be waterproof at up to 131 feet or 40m. The camera is expected to support different file formats such as MJPEG, BP, MP, H.264 and HP Level 5.1.
Both variants of GoPro Hero 4 cameras, silver and classic black, allows the users to shoot HD videos and play them on HD TVs easily. GoPro has stepped up by providing LCD and an improved audio system that is two times superior to the dynamic range of its predecessors.
Priced at an introductory offer of $450 for the silver variant and $550 for the black, GoPro Hero 4 continues to beat all other sports cameras in the industry as it gains additional attention for its top shelf specs and incredible features.
There are several accessories available in the market, like the dog harness, GoPro three-way Grip Extension Arm, apart from the common helmet harness that makes capturing videos with this camera, far from thrilling and interesting.
GoPro Hero 4 silver will have the same specs at Hero 3+ while GoPro Hero 4 classic black will have the 4K variant. There is already a huge rush of reviews online, as GoPro Inc. keeps updating their info.
