Video: This is the New GoPro Hero 4; it’s Epic
I absolutely love my GoPro cameras. I have a Hero 3 and a Hero 3+, and they have made all the cool videos you have seen me make for the site possible. That Pike’s Peak run in the Miata race car, every single in-car review and even that Lego time-lapse were all created using this incredible and versatile camera. Today, GoPro just announced that there is an all-new model coming, and it is better than ever before.
Meet the GoPro Hero 4.
It takes the powerful GoPro Hero3+ and doubles its imaging power. It will now do 4K video at a full 30 FPS, it can take 1080p video at up to 120 frames per second for silky smooth slow-motion video and it has all-new photo modes to it as well. The GoPro 3+ was already the most capable camera I had ever used. Now it has only gotten better. Some new features include Bluetooth control for remotes and cell phones, a new dedicated settings button, and the Hero 4 now has an LCD screen built in (Silver models)!
Like every new camera, GoPro sent out a collection of these new imaging toys around the world to get some incredible footage. You can see the results for yourself above. The whole movie was also shot in 4K, so if you have a 4K monitor, this is a great chance to give it a solid workout.
