I just purchased the Hero 3+ Black Edition one month ago. When the Hero 4 came out I had to try it and I ended up returning my Hero 3+. Why did I get the Hero 4 Silver over the Hero 4 Black and the Hero 3+ Black?

Three Reasons:

1. The Hero 4 Black is $499 and does not come with an LCD (because of heat issues from 4k they could not put on an LCD).
So really if you bought an LCD BacPac for the Black edition, it would cost you a total of $579 compared to the $399 of the Silver. This is a $180 difference!

2. The two models BOTH have improved sharpness compared to the Hero3+ Black.
This video compares the sharpness of the Hero3+ Black, to the Hero4 Silver, and the Hero4 Black:
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=07Y2iTSNy8g&list=UUTs-d2DgyuJVRICivxe2Ktg

Watch this video to compare the Hero4 Black to the Hero3+ Black:
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BacBT268-pQ&list=UUTs-d2DgyuJVRICivxe2Ktg

Then watch this video to compare the Hero4 Black to the Hero4 Silver:
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aNazYkq4omY&list=UUTs-d2DgyuJVRICivxe2Ktg

As you can see the sharpness between the Hero 4 Black and the Silver is the SAME. They both have the same upgraded sensor/lens and it's definitely improved over the 3+ Black. Yes, the 4 Black can do 4k at 30 FPS, 2.7k48, and 1080p120 while the 4 Silver can only do 2.7k at 30 FPS, 1080p60 (it can do 4k 15 FPS but that is not really usable for most purposes). But to be honest, that is the only improvement and it is a $180 difference! At this moment I cannot justify 4k for that much of an additional increase. I am happy with what the 4 Silver offers AND I get an LCD which is extremely convenient.

This is the first time I've ever had a high quality camera, so I will write from that perspective. I'm not going to compare it to prior models or break-down a comparison to other action cams. This review is just about the camera itself and how to possibly get the most of it.

First and foremost let me say that the quality of the video is absolutely stunning. I think GoPro cameras are mostly meant for video but even their snap shots can be quite amazing too. I have always liked photography but could never justify spending $600+ on a camera I probably wouldn't even use that often due to bulk and lenses. As a mountain biker, I've found myself craving to get some of the stuff I do on video. I've been wanting to get a GoPro for some time and have put it off until my birthday finally came around and my wife bought me the recently released Hero 4 Silver. I didn't order it on Amazon because I didn't want to wait 2 days to get it haha. We went to a local store and we almost bought the Hero3+ Silver edition but my wife convinced me to get the Hero4 instead and boy am I glad she did!

Let me say off the bat some of the problems I've experienced so far:

1. The battery life absolutely sucks. One battery is not enough to get you through almost any activity. I think it lasts even less time if its hot. You will need at minimum 3 batteries. I will be ordering a Wasabi dual battery charger with 2 extra batteries later today.

2. When uploading your vids and pics to the computer it will ask you if you want to clear the SD card. ALWAYS say no. I've lost pictures and videos that have failed to upload TWICE already. I have no way of knowing if it was due to the software not downloading it or if it just failed to record.

A lot of people ask themselves if it's worth to buy the GoPro 4 because the GoPro 3+ also seems to be a very good choice. I've had the GoPro 3+ and now I bought the GoPro 4 so in this review I'm going to help decide.

To start off with, the Menu system of the GoPro 4 is a lot easier and faster to navigate. Selecting menu options doesn't require scrolling then selecting then exiting to choose it. Also, a one touch "settings/tag" button replaces the Wi-Fi button which works great because you don't need to scroll through the menu to find it. The "Quick Capture" feature which allows one touch recording when the camera is OFF, is a great feature since it takes less than 2 seconds to begin recording. The LCD menu system is also much quicker and easier to navigate. Also very high frame rate at 4K/15 and 1080/60 which is incredible. WVGA/240 is still available which wasn't disclosed in the advertised specs that I read. The LCD for the GoPro 3+ works fine with the GoPro 4. The cameras are the same physical size therefore all GoPro3+ accessories work except for the battery. You can also look at the GoPro 3+ page to see some more differences: http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00F3F0EIU/ref=as_li_tl?ie=UTF8&camp=1789&creative=390957&creativeASIN=B00F3F0EIU&linkCode=as2&tag=newcams-20&linkId=DUJPZ2WT4XFGJIDX

I recommend the GoPro 4 over the GoPro 3+ so spend the extra money if you want to capture near professional quality video with a camera which is and faster and easier to use.

(test videos below) I went into the store today to buy the Hero3+ Black edition and they were out of it. This was just released so I decided to get the Hero4 Silver Edition because it is basically a small upgrade to the Hero3+ Black (from what I could read). This is also my first GoPro and the first camera of any quality in a long time. I also purchased a 64gb Pixtor SanDisk Class U3 microsd card.

I'm really enjoying this product so far. Having never had a GoPro, the touchscreen seems like the only way you could control this camera. It seems like it would be difficult with buttons. It seems to respond very well. It times out as you are shooting video. At first, I didn't realize this and I thought the camera went off or it stopped shooting, but if you tap the screen the picture will come back. I'm sure this saves on a lot of battery.

It took me a little to get used to the Wide and SuperWide len, but I think I'm starting to get the optimal range for shooting. You have to be pretty close obviously to get good shots. You can put the camera in Medium or Narrow focus on some resolutions (around 720p is when you get the Narrow option), but I haven't played with it all that much.

Without the housing, the camera is tiny. The lens protrudes a bit so you will have to be careful carrying it around without a case. It feels solidly built. The hdmi and usb port is covered by a tiny piece of plastic that I'm no doubt going to lose. I will just have to be careful about where I set this little piece down.

So far I've shot two videos and edited them in the GoPro Studio software that I downloaded (free). I shot one in 1080p30fpsSuperWide (https://www.youtube.com/watch?
