  • GoPro HERO4 Black

    With the ability to capture 4K at 30 fps (4K30), the GoPro HERO4 Black allows you to move beyond HD when recording POV style footage either wearing the camera or mounting it in a number of creative ways. On top of 4K, the camera shoots 2.7K at up to 60 fps, Full HD (1080p) at up to 120 fps for high definition slow motion, WVGA (848 x 480) for upload-friendly files, and more. Plus, with the SuperView mode enabled, the camera maximizes its sensor area to give you an ultra-wide angle of view to enhance the POV feel of footage while encompassing as much of the scene as possible. The HERO4 Black's capabilities don't end with video, though. It can take 12-megapixel stills as individual shots, in intervals for stitching together time-lapse movies, or in momentary bursts of up to 30 photos per second - the latter helping ensure you catch fast action at just the right moment.

    For remote monitoring and operation, the camera is equipped with Wi-Fi and Bluetooth connectivity, letting you pair it with a mobile device or the separately available Smart Remote. There is also a USB port for file transfer, charging, or to connect the optional 3.5mm mic adapter. Further promoting its take-anywhere claim, the 131' Standard Housing is included, and not only keeps the camera dry, it adds an extra layer of protection. In addition to the bundled flat and adhesive mounts, the camera is also adaptable to a wide range of separately available mounts from GoPro and third-parties - with options to accommodate just about any scenario imaginable.

    2x Faster Processor than HERO3+ Black Edition
    The redesigned processor is twice as fast as the one in the HERO3+ Black Edition. This enables 4K30 recording as well as 2.7K recording at up to 60 fps, 1080p slow-motion recording at 120 fps, and 720p slow-motion at 240 fps

    Note: Please ensure your camera is updated to the latest firmware to take advantage of all of these frame rates
    Built-In Wi-Fi and Bluetooth
    Allows you to pair the HERO4 with a mobile device running the GoPro App, or use the separately available Smart Remote. With the app you can preview, playback, and share your favorite shots via email, text, Facebook, Instagram, and more. With the Smart Remote, it is possible to control of up to 50 cameras from distances of up to 600' line-of-sight. The advantage of using Bluetooth instead of Wi-Fi - where supported - is reduced power consumption
    GoPro App and Studio Software
    Expand your GoPro experience with the free GoPro App and GoPro Studio software. The GoPro App allows you to control your camera remotely using your phone or tablet, view and share your content, and watch "best of" videos on the GoPro Channel.

HERO4 Black Beginners Kit is rated 4.4 out of 5 by 28.
Rated 1 out of 5 by from Trash Don't buy this. I bought this from B&H last week and right out of the package it had problems. It was making a helicopter noise in all the recordings. I did a google search for Go Pro Helicopter Noise to see if it's a common issue and sure enough it's a HUGE common issues with the hardware. Youtube has a ton of videos with people sharing their stories about the problem and all the hoops GO PRO makes them go through just to get their camera replaced, and even the replacement cameras have the issue. What kind of camera company has issues with new equipment right away. I'm contacting B&H today to see what my options are for returning this piece of junk.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Ideal for beginners The camera is excellent to do movies and take nice photos with a wide angle. The card came in a very nice size to take photos and do videos non professionals and the handler is better then the gopro. the second battery i didn't use yet because you need to change the battery every time you need to recharge so i recommend to buy a wall charger for 2 batteries.
Date published: 2016-05-09
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good semi-pro camera I use the product mostly with the selfie stick or the head mount. It can capture moments which your regular camera/camcorder never can. The quality is at par. Best setting for videos would be 1080 60fps for this device. Pictures quality is OK.Good for taking wide angle shots.The battery is not very long lasting, consider buying a couple of extra batteries for filming long duration.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Perfect for it's purpose I finally got a GroPro to supplement my current professional gear. This will be my main camera to capture high quality video in central america without the added bulk of my usual gear. Image distortion is a minor issue. I won't use wide view. The only downside is the battery life. However,I have enough backup batteries for my purpose.
Date published: 2016-03-10
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect for my needs The quality of this camera is already profesional grade. So there's no point for me to get the Black model.. Perfect for my vacations and activities like snowboarding, longboarding, surfing or just chilling on the beach.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Hero4 Black beginner's issues I purchased the Hero4 Black from B&H Photo to complete a array of camera's project. First, no complaint about the service or price from B&H, it was the lowest and fastest I could find on line, and I was very happy with it. I was not happy with the poor user interface of the Hero 4 black. The other camera's in the array (Hero3 Black's) worked perfectly, however the Hero 4 black seemed to want to go to 4K time lapse mode as a default, and required much key interaction to get it into proper settings. It turned out that the camera could not be configured in time for the project. I think GoPro out smarted themselves in their design and forgot that ease of use and reliability of performance is more important than constantly hitting many buttons for countless times to get to where you need to be. (The cardinal sin of UX). Also the GoPro App had difficulty connecting to the Hero 4, and no problem with the Hero 3. To end on a positive note, The beginners Kit was very useful because I needed to use sound queuing, which would not have been possible with the sealed container. I was able to use the clamp mount from the kit with another flexible clamp mount to hold the camera to the wall.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great picture quality at 4K resolution The Hero4 Black comes with a standard housing, skeleton backdoor (for access to the camera), rechargeable battery, curved adhesive mount, flat adhesive mount, quick-release buckles, three-way pivot arm, and Mini USB cable. In shooting 4K with the Hero4 Black, there's a learning curve to master that's different from previous Heroes. There are now a total of 47 different resolution and frame rate combinations. All in all, we would still highly recommend the Hero4 Black for consumers. Even if you're not a pro-level shooter, or adept at color grading, the ability to capture motion in glorious 4K is a worthy investment since your footage will eventually live online from here out. It's always better to downscale footage now than upscale it in the future.
