The all new GoPro Hero 4 Black Edition takes the incredible Hero 3+ camera and adds a whole lot more to it! Faster, sleeker and with much better performance, the Hero 4 Black Edition is the most powerful GoPro ever produced and is guaranteed to get all the action shots you've previously only dreamed of.
When GoPro released the Hero 3+ we were blown away with the performance it had. Once again GoPro have blown everyone else out of the water by producing the best camera EVER! Compared to the Hero 3+ Black Edition the Hero 4 Black is twice as powerful with video frame rates twice what it's predecessor had. 4K footage is now available at up to 30 frames per second and 2.7K has been boosted to a whopping 50 frames per second. This allows you to get cinema quality slow motion footage at home. 1080p Full HD footage also gets a boost up to 120 frames per second.
The more powerful processor also allows the Hero 4 Black Edition to rule the roost in the photo department too with a 12mp sensor capable of shooting in burst mode up to 30 photos per second. This can be used to produce incredible time lapse and stop motion videos. The faster processor has also allowed GoPro to beef up the software functionality including their awesome Protune settings. Protune can now be used for photos as well as videos and allows for professional grade tuning of colour, ISO Limit, white balance, sharpness and exposure by unlocking manual control of these features in the camera.
Other hardware upgrades include a powerful new audio system which captures clean, high fidelity sound with twice the dynamic range of previous GoPro cameras. A new integrated analogue to digital converter also means the GoPro Hero 4 is compatible with professional level low sensitivity external microphones for immersive stereo sound audio capture. Other hardware updates include Bluetooth for the first time ever on a GoPro camera. GoPro haven't replaced the WiFi though so now you get even more options for connection to PCs, Macs, smartphones and tablets. This means you can use your tablet or smartphone as a viewfinder or to playback footage and share it via social media, email and more.
An auto low light mode allows the camera to do the work for you, readjusting to give the optimal performance in lower light conditions. An after dark setting also allows you to capture Night Photo and Night Lapse meaning whether you're shooting the Milky Way or a campfire hangout the shots will look better than ever before.

Thanks for your feedback Ann. Our team all work extremely hard and care passionately about delivering excellent customer service - not just before you buy either! Our team of experts are more than happy to discuss GoPro queries as part of our after sales service. Occasionally things beyond our control do go wrong (lost in post, faulty products, etc). We have tried and tested systems in place to handle these situations but some customers get upset and do not want to listen to the proposed solutions, preferring to vent their frustrations on various review websites. Negative reviews tend to be from the same customer making the same complaint multiple times using a variety of aliases. We use Shopzilla to conduct independent reviews of our customer service and these reviews tend to be universally overwhelmingly extremely positive.
Awesome awesome awesome.
I've had a gopro hero wife for years an decided to upgrade to the hero4 silver when it got released. All I can say is WOW. what a cam. I use for motocross racing and mountain biking and the videos an amazing quality even with the lighting changing of going through trees etc the cam just keeps giving. Time-lapse mode is a great feature and I've used to much more than k thought I would. The quick recording feature is awesome for the sports I use it for with just quick to recording on the go. Rear LCD screen is flawless but does run the battery down if u fiddle with it a lot but that's to be expected. Endless features on the gopro and ultimately the BEST action cam on the market period.
GoPro Hero4 Silver
This GoPro Hero4 Silver exceeds all my expectations. Great quality, user-friendly with the touch screen, great camera ... don't wait anymore !
More than what it says on the tin!!
The performance of this product is nothing short of incredible. The technology that's packed into such a small camera is amazing. It's rugged and the pictures/video are superb.
GoPro Hero 4 order - excellent service
I purchased a Go Pro Hero 4 Silver in December. As I was visiting the Hemel snowdome I collected. The guy who served me said they had run out of the free 8GB micro SD cards but promised that he would send me one when they came back in stock which he did. I paid the normal price but the day I ordered it I found it cheaper elsewhere with a code. I made contact with your support outlining this with them issuing me a refund of the difference which was 15%. I'm extremely pleased with the service and have since recommended you guys to fellow ski and snowboard friends of mine.
Get the black edition unless you really can't stretch to it
We are a small media company and we film everywhere from the studio to mountaintops. To stay successful in today's market we need kit that is versatile and gives maximum bang for our buck. The GoPro4 Black Edition was an obvious choice. Once you've got the hang of the hard to read and navigate menu screen, (once you've used it a couple of times, it's dead easy) you've got a 120fps HD camera for slow-mo shots (the picture quality on 240fps format really isn't there yet, unless you can throw a LOT of light on the subject), a very versatile and weatherproof time-lapse camera, an HD underwater cam down to 40m, a fast-burst stills cam and a shock-proof action cam all for under £400. We do a lot of news and current affairs work where we don't know what to expect, so the little GoPro black lives in the kit bag and rarely is there a job where it doesn't come out at some point. Works great with Adobe After Effects and Premiere Pro.
