Earlier this week, Go Pro announced three new cameras at three different price levels: the new flagship Hero4 Black, which can shoot 4K video at a full 30 frames per second, the new Hero4 Silver, which is an updated 1080p camera with a touchscreen display, and a new entry-level Hero camera that costs only $130. Now everyone can afford a fancy HD camera to take anywhere.
The New Hero 4 Black
The top end is the Hero4 Black edition. At $500, it’s the most expensive piece of hardware in the new line-up, but also the most serious. It shoots 4K video at 30 frames per second.
Taking one step down, the $400 Hero 4 Silver maxes out at 1080p resolution at 60fps, but offers something that’s more useful to the average user: a built-in touchscreen display.
GoPro Go Cheaper
The newest “cheap” camera from the company is simply called the Hero. It maxes out at 1080p resolution at 30fps, and if you want to shoot in 60fps, you can only do so at 720p resolution.
Below you can see videos of the 4K beast in action, some new features in all models of the Hero4 are:
– Faster Frame rate
– Night photo and night lapse
– Improved UI
