GoPro Hero4 Black's video still the best in the category

 

GoPro has taken a tiny box roughly the size of a Zippo lighter and turned it into something truly remarkable.

The GoPro Hero4 Black delivers best-in-class video at resolutions up to 4K at 30fps or 1080p at 120fps. Wide assortment of mounting options from GoPro and third-party manufacturers

Battery life can feel painfully short and due to a redesign you can't use older batteries with the Hero4. No option for in-camera digital image stabilization and it still needs a housing to be waterproof

The GoPro Hero4 Silver is still our top choice for most people, but if you need the best video quality with the most shooting options, the Hero4 Black is it.

GoPro Hero4 Silver takes the gold

 

For the past couple generations, GoPro's Black model has been the one to buy because like the majority of top-of-the-line models, it had the best features and best performance and was markedly better than the step-down model, the Silver.

The GoPro Hero4 Silver produces some great video for an action cam. Its abundant resolution and frame-rate options will satisfy beginners and experienced shooters. The built-in touchscreen makes previewing and reviewing and changing settings a breeze

It still needs a housing to be waterproof. Battery redesign means you can't use your old batteries and battery life will still be too short for some. No option for in-camera digital image stabilization

The GoPro Hero4 Silver takes everything we liked about the Hero3+ Black -- especially the solid video quality -- and adds in some handy new features including a touchscreen, making it one of the best little action cameras around.

GoPro Hero4 Black

 

The GoPro Hero4 Black is small enough to fit in the palm of your hand and only weighs 87g, or 152g with the protective case. Don't be deceived by its tiny size, this little camera captures amazingly vivid and sharp video. The lens has a fixed f2.8...

Ultra HD 30fps

Expensive

It’s an amazing piece of kit, but the GoPro Hero4 Black is overkill if you’ll never shoot in more than 1080p. Make sure you weigh it up against the Hero4 Silver and the cheaper GoPro models to find the best match for your requirements and your budget.

GoPro Hero 4 Silver Edition: Australian Review

 

For as long as there have been cameras, people have been pointing them at themselves doing stupid things. The best new way to do that is with the GoPro Hero 4 Silver.

Great image quality ; Enormous array of mounts ; Excellent all-rounder

Expensive ; Average battery life ; Non-standard charger

There’s no two ways about it: the GoPro range is pricier than ever. The Hero 4 Silver is $498 from Australia’s GoPro distributor.

Didn't regret buying this instead of Hero 4 Black

 

Bought this for holiday photos and videos. It was the best gadget I've ever purchased for a holiday. Very convenient for its light-weight and size. The LCD display was a big bonus when framing shots. The specs are slightly below the Black version but...

Great little camera - I no longer pack the bulky digital cameras

 

ty for such a small camera. Relatives have scoffed that such a small camera would be able to take quality photos when we got the family together for a reunion. The wide angle lense made short work of shuffling people in tight to make sure they were in...
