1. Is it worth upgrading from the 3 to the 4? Short answer: mostly likely. Long answer: see below.
2. Which version of the 4 should I get? Short: Are you a pro? Black. Otherwise, the HERO or 4 Silver.
3. What else do I need? Short: a really fast microSD. Long: probably also some extra batteries
On upgrading - I used to own the 3+ Black. While the increased slow motion capabilities interested me, the big selling point is the 4K. In daylight, a GoPro with protune is actually surprisingly comparable to a dSLR (I do aerial cinematography for film sets). The only weak point of the 3rd generation was the softness / lack of sharpness. Now, I can film in 4k, downscale to 1080p, and it's sharper than my Canon 6D! If you have paying clients, or are seriously building your portfolio, you should upgrade. But if you already own a version of the 3, and just film things for fun....save your money for adventures :)
If you do decide to upgrade (or this is your first GoPro), you have three good options BESIDES the Black:
The $130 barebones HERO: http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00NIYNUXO/ref=as_li_tl?ie=UTF8&camp=1789&creative=390957&creativeASIN=B00NIYNUXO&linkCode=as2&tag=todmedblo-20&linkId=6RGQWHRXFRZSLFPY
The $300 HERO3+ Silver: http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00F3F0EIU/ref=as_li_tl?ie=UTF8&camp=1789&creative=390957&creativeASIN=B00F3F0EIU&linkCode=as2&tag=todmedblo-20&linkId=74K5GFVCEONUONTG
The $400 HERO4 Silver: http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00NIYJF6U/ref=as_li_tl?ie=UTF8&camp=1789&creative=390957&creativeASIN=B00NIYJF6U&linkCode=as2&tag=todmedblo-20&linkId=UMGB6UAI466WOP6K
The GoPro website has a huge spreadsheet comparing all their features... but here's how I think about it:
If you're using the GoPro to just capture memories, save your money for the memories and get the HERO.
If you /think/ you're interested in using your GoPro to make more serious footage (but don't have any experience yet), pick the version of the Silver that best suites your budget. Note that the 4 Silver has a touchscreen back to help you frame your shots - that alone is worth the $100 if you can afford it.
And if you're already a heavy GoPro user (or filmmaker in general) with paying customers or past successes, get the Black. If you have a once in a lifetime trip approaching, and you have deep pockets, you might also consider the Black - but, for a lot of people, there are more meaningful things you can do with that extra money :)
Especially if you're filming in 4K protune, you're gonna want the fastest card you can get your hands on. I've been using this SanDisk without issue: http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00M55BS8G/ref=as_li_tl?ie=UTF8&camp=1789&creative=390957&creativeASIN=B00M55BS8G&linkCode=as2&tag=todmedblo-20&linkId=UVLMTWAPOPKC6RT3
It also gobbles through batteries. I seem to get about an hour of battery life, and that's only filming about half the time. Thankfully, Wasabi once again has our back with a dual battery set w/charger for just $24: http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00OAAUZO2/ref=as_li_tl?ie=UTF8&camp=1789&creative=390957&creativeASIN=B00OAAUZO2&linkCode=as2&tag=todmedblo-20&linkId=O67BCZ56CZ4ABYS2
Contacted GoPro.. they made me shoot a Proof-clip to demonstrate the problem. ok fine.
They acknowledged there may be a problem..
Then they needed All my info purchase date, receipt info, shipping address so they could "begin the process" ..ok..
I sent all this info.
Then weeks of silence.
Contacted customer service chat.. OBVIOUSLY a BOT. -- programmed responses.. some answers make Zero sense.. Bot.
Bot tells you it as been handed over to "the specialty team" or some such.. and to wait another week.
..waited.. Still Nothing
got in touch with them Again..
Was AGAIN told to wait.. because they needed to "Review my case".... Really?
bottom line- Do Not buy a Go Pro. product is questionable, and customer service is almost Non Existent.
Follow up- Been 4 months of attempts on my part for resolution. have received ZERO response or resolution from GoPro
DO NOT BUY.
They are like shady used car salesmen.
New update- 9 months- STILL NO Resolution or reply
1. SD card errors - Alright. Your getting a very powerful, very fast camera with the Hero 4 Black, and you need a very powerful, very fast SD card to match. I would NOT recommend buying the GoPro Recommended SD card if your planning on getting the Hero 4 Black. You might have issues with the most extreme filming rates, such as 4K (4K = 4X the resolution of 1080p HD), even though it specifically claims it can handle 4K, my experience differs. Get an SD card that can actually handle 4K and also says it in it's product description. Sandisk makes a very good one (Extreme Pro), and although it's more expensive, I believe it's what is truly needed for 4K, and it's 100% worth it to not have any issues at all, and to get flawless performance out of your Hero 4 Black at all times.
2. Battery Life - Yes, the Hero 4 Black does use battery faster than the previous models, but that is because of the updated features included in it (faster processor, faster frame rates). Go Pro batteries are very cheap (official GoPro batteries - $15, just as good knockoffs - $8-$10), and all you have to do is get an extra few batteries for more extended use. If your problem is you don't want to (or can't because of what your filming) switch out batteries like that, then just get the GoPro Battery BacPac (the new, 15% more capacity one) and you will basically double your battery life. You can even plug certain power banks into your Battery BacPac to keep it constantly running on that. Huge convenience.
3. The camera heating up - This camera is incredibly small, and can handle incredibly fast rates such as 4K and 2.7K, which a lot of bigger cameras can't even do, and this of course will heat up the unit while it's in use. This is true with almost any electronic with a battery (your smartphone, tablet, laptop, etc.) GoPro has a safety feature that will shut down your camera if it happens to get too hot, so that it can't possibly do any damage to your camera. I don't know what the exact temperature level is that it shuts down at, but it must be real high, because i've gotten mine really hot filming outside in the summer sun and it still performed flawlessly and didn't shut down. My opinion - I wouldn't worry too much about the overheating issue. It's way overblown in some of these reviews in my opinion.
*NOTE* It's a good idea to take the battery out of your camera while it is not in use. There's a bug GoPro hasn't patched yet that can possibly turn your camera on by itself if the wi-fi is left on, but I have only found this happen once. The simple fix - turn off your Wi-Fi before turning off your camera.
Here are some of the prime features of the Hero 4 Black:
-simplified menu, easy to scroll through and change settings.
-New Auto Low Light settings.
-built in Wi-Fi and Bluetooth, for easy viewing and sharing.
-Super slow motion frame rates - 1080/120fps, and 720/240fps.
-QuikCapture - turn on and start recording by pressing top button, turn on and take time lapse photos by holding top button for 2 seconds.
-HiLight Tag - My favorite. put a marker in your footage so you can easily take out/retrieve the part you want, just by pressing the side button during playback.
-Greater audio performance - The Hero 4 Black has 2x the dynamic range, and the built-in microphone is MUCH better than the previous models. Sound is crisp and clear.
- The Hero 4 Black also has another built-in feature that enables it to be used with a greater range of professional microphones than it's predecessors.
Now, onto the actual review of the camera.
Right out of the box, it doesn't come with much. Just the camera, dive housing, a charging/sync cable, and a manual. It DOES NOT come with a micro SD card, so your gonna have to purchase one when you purchase the camera if you want to be able to use it. Turning on the camera, it powers up in about 2 seconds and is ready to go.
One of the only cons i've noticed is the connection between the camera and the GoPro App (for live video streaming) can be spotty at times. It hasn't given me enough problems to take a star away or mess up any of what i've filmed, but it was kind of annoying (until I got the LCD BacPac - now I have no issues). The App also cannot live stream the faster frame rates, such as 4K and certain 2.7K rates (or at least won't over my connection).
Something I really love about the Hero 4 Black (and I guess GoPro in general) is the way the camera gets updated. You will get a little notification on your phone that an update is available. All you do is turn on your camera, turn on the camera's Wi-Fi, click on the notification, and it will update through the Wi-Fi. No plugging up to the computer for updates anymore! I also love that with my update, I received new ISO settings (low light), as well as the ability to edit short clips directly on the LCD BacPac. Every update increases the camera's performance and even gives you new settings to be able to film better. Can't beat that.
In my experience, this camera is 100% worth the money, and you will love every minute using it. There are hundreds of accessories for the GoPro now, so you can really get the most out of your camera. It truly is a professional action camera, so I wouldn't recommend it to anybody who has no previous camera experience. You're gonna want to know something about manual settings for cameras and what they do when you manipulate them. This camera exceeded my expectations and more, and I would recommend it to anybody and everybody, especially those who are looking for a high quality camera with tons of capabilities.

In attesa di capire come sarà la 6, mi sento di dare questo giudizio.
La qualità delle immagini e dei video è unica. Ha un'infinità di accessori che la rendono utilizzabile praticamente ovunque e con in qualsiasi situazione.
Non sto a elencarvi le caratteristiche tecniche che potete trovare direttamente sul sito Gopro o in descrizione del prodotto Amazon.
Ho avuto sia la Hero 3 sia questa sia la Hero 5 black. La 3 e la 5 le ho rivendute, per tenere questa.
Due difetti: la batteria che dura all'incirca 1 ora a 1080p 60 fps. Troppo poco. Se poi ci aggiungete il display posteriore ancora meno. L'altro è il microfono, dentro il case non si sente niente, con il frame si sente poco. Diciamo che necessita di un microfono esterno.
Questo non mi fa abbassare il numero di stelle perchè a mio avviso su una action cam display e microfono non servono. Se volete usarla per filmare tenendo la GoPro in mano, allora compratevi una videocamera classica con zoom, display e microfono migliore.
Io la utilizzo sul casco, attaccata alla macchina o a un'asta sott'acqua, tutte situazioni in cui serve riprendere solo il video. E in questo è la migliore videocamera che esista.
Oh, and guess what: in order to plug in the external microphone you need to buy a 6 inch adapter cable (worth about $2) for around $25.
One big plus with the GoPro is not in the device itself but in the size of its user base which makes it easy to find all kinds of accessories as well as help with virtually any issue that comes up.
The only difference in the US Version is that it does not have French on the packaging. The product is the same as the Canadian GoPro HERO4 in all other points.
Totally worth the cost of the unit. Does everything it should and the picture and video quality are excellent.
Funziona perfettamente ed è arrivata il giorno indicato.
Se non avete una gopro ve la consiglio perchè secondo me questa (o anche la versione silver, se volete uno schermo integrato) è la migliore gopro di sempre, con prestazioni ottimali e attuali nonostante sia ormai un modello vecchio di 4-5 anni.
-Helmet mounted(chin guard), there's low vibration
-I am using a modified Deyard(brand) case with a hacked up back door for a battery eliminator and the wind noise isn't too bad. but its definitely there if you get a cross wind or turn your head. Might try a sock on the back of the case.
-with a power bank and a batter eliminator cable you could record all day with a 128GB card.
Sehr zu empfehlen. Das es keinen Display hat ist vollkommen ok. Den braucht man nicht wenn man mitten in der Action ist.
This is the most powerful GoPro yet! 4K at 30fps and 1080p 120 fps is impressive!
To many settings for me to explain it all now but there is a lot of information on the GoPro webpage for you to check out
I would also like to say that if you just capture ''home videos'' the hero 4 silver would also be a great choice with the build in screen.
- 1 star for the defective camera.
