GoPro, maker of the world’s most popular action video camera, has released its latest and greatest—the GoPro HERO4.
The new camera is a massive technological leap from what was already considered the best camera of its kind in the HERO3+, to the tune of twice the image quality, twice the processing speeds, and twice the video frame rates.
According to CNET, the new camera’s processor allows you “to record at up to 4K resolution at 30 frames per second. It can also do 1080p at 120fps, which can make for some very smooth video when shooting fast-moving scenes, as well as nice slow-motion clips.”
We can only assume that means good things for capturing your adventures at the racetrack, on the streets, or on your next off-road adventure.
The new GoPro camera comes as both a Black and Silver edition.
The Black edition is the camera that provides all of the new tech and innovations and costs $499.99.
The Silver edition is a step-down model priced at $399.99. It records video at up to 4K at 15fps (frames per second), 2.7K at 30fps, and 1080p at 60fps—the same specs from the HERO3/3+ Black. It’s also the first GoPro to offer a built-in touch display.
