02 Oct GoPro Hero4 touchscreen or 4K recording at 30 frames per second
The rumor had skipped days ago with the emergence of leaked advertisements that look and specifications of the GoPro Hero4. The action camera is offered in two versions, Black and Silver, which we will have to decide for the two major developments in the camera.
One of the important points that were ahead, is confirmed, the new action camera is capable of recording 4K video at 30 frames per second. But it is a feature that remains in the Black model.
Updated: GoPro HERO, there is also room for a more affordable camera action
The other new item we have on your touch screen, for the first time in a household device. Again it is an option that has only one model, and here is the thing Hero4 Silver GoPro.
The third interesting aspect – that we had no doubt it would change – is compatibility with accessories and mounts above models, one of the strengths of the family of GoPro cameras. In this sense everything stays the same.
GoPro Hero4 Black
Clearly the most powerful model is the Black option, doubling the performance of existing models, with a processor twice as powerful. It is allowing duplicate frames per second at a resolution as high as 4K.
The operating modes are: the aforementioned 4K at 30fps, then spent a 2.7K to 50fps, 1440p at 80fps, 1080p at 120fps, 120fps at 960p, and 720p at 120fps. We see no way that dares to 240 images per second.
As for still images, the sensor is capable of capturing 12 megapixel snapshots in a few bursts of 30 frames per second. We comment that the sound capture system has also been improved, doubling the dynamic range.
The camera comes with a wide angle lens, with three modes: Ultra Wide, Medium and Narrow. There is possibility to switch to a manual configuration of parameters such as color, ISO, exposure, etc. We will expand when we have more information.
With the housing is able to withstand up to 40 meters deep. Nor have forgotten all existing connectivity such as WiFi or Bluetooth. The ability to mark important moments in the video, to find them easily afterwards introduced.
GoPro Hero4 Silver
The Silver model no Hero4 GoPro 4K recording at the same level, and we were in the current 15 images per second. Yes, the touch screen that gives us the ability to control the camera with gestures is introduced.
In operating modes we find: 4K at 15fps, 2.7K to 30fps, 1440p at 48fps, 1080p at 60fps, 960p at 100fps, 120fps at an 720p. Again we can record a 12-megapixel snapshots.
GoPro Hero4, when?
GoPro has not yet ruled on the product on any of their channels of information, but it is rumored that the new GoPro Hero4 be formalized on 8 October. We look forward to new information.
New accessories, such as housings with matte finish for better camouflage, new extra batteries and double boots, and water resistant remote control, better grip also expect.
