The GoPro Hero4 Black Edition builds on the success of the GoPro Hero3 and 3+ with the additions of 4K UHD recording at 30fps, high speed slow motion frame rates of up to 120fps at 1080HD and advanced manual controls including changing colour, ISO, white balance and exposure.
The GoPro Hero4 Black Edition is the most high-performing GoPro so far. It boasts a 2x more powerful processor and 2x faster frame rates plus better image quality than its predecessors.
The Black Edition is capable of recording 4K at 30fps, 2.7K at 50fps and 1080p at 120fps, all in an incredibly small camera body. Using the GoPro Hero4 Black Edition it is also possible to shoot 12MP photos at 30fps. This can be achieved either as single photos or in Time Lapse mode which shoots photos automatically at set time intervals from 0.5 to 60 seconds.
The GoPro Hero4 Black Edition has new Night Photo and Night Lapse modes which offer customisable exposure settings of up to 30 seconds for single and time lapse shots, allowing a user to capture ultra low-light scenes.
The GoPro Hero4 Black Edition features built-in WiFi and Bluetooth allowing connection to the GoPro App, Smart Remote and more. The GoPro App (which is free!) allows remote control of the GoPro Hero4 Black Edition from your phone or tablet, with full operation of all functions and settings, preview and playback and sharing via text, email, Facebook etc. The Smart Remote allows control of multiple GoPros from distances up to 180m.
Superview is a new, GoPro exclusive video mode that allows a GoPro Hero4 Black Edition user to capture more of themselves and their environment in a wider-than-before shot. (4K UHD Superview 3840 x 2160, 2.7K Superview 2704 x 1520, 1080HD Superview 1920 x 1080 and 720HD Superview 1280 x 720).
Auto Low Light changes frame rates based on lighting conditions for optimal low-light performance. This allows the movement of the GoPro Hero4 Black Edition between bright and dark environments without the need to adjust camera settings.
The QuickCapture function powers up the GoPro Hero4 and starts recording automatically with one button press. Press once to record video, press and hold for two seconds to capture time lapse photos.
The GoPro Hero4 Black Edition features a new audio system delivering 2x the dynamic range and clean, high-fidelity sound. The new, integrated ADC (analog to digital converter) means the GoPro Hero4 is compatible with a wider variety of external mics.
HiLight Tag is a new mode that allows a GoPro Hero4 Black Edition user to mark key moments while recording for convenient playback, editing and sharing.
The GoPro Hero4 Black Edition incorporates ProTune delivering minimally compressed, cinema-calibre video optimized for professional productions plus advanced manual control for photos and video, including manual settings for colour, ISO limit, white balance, sharpness and exposure.
The GoPro Hero4 Black Edition also features a new dedicated button allowing quick access and adjustment of the camera’s settings, plus simplified menus make navigating settings easier.
