  Here's a review on the GoPro Hero 4 Silver camera.

GoPro Hero 4 Silver Review.  

GoPro is the ultimate brand for innovated action cameras. This brand is at the top in this niche market and very successful at innovating their cameras year after year.  GoPro action cameras make creating videos accessible to anyone at any level! I wanted to review my first GoPro I ever purchased because it's been around the world with me capturing epic experiences.


The new GoPro Hero series has come with a major update. The GoPro Hero 4 series (Silver and Black) now come with a touchscreen LCD screen. This is a game-changer for the action camera brand and for the many dedicated users who've been wanting to see this part of their camera system design for quite some time now. This will help novice users record with ease and see what their capturing. Prior to this update you had to sync your GoPro with the app to see what you were recording and hoping you captured what you wanted. With the LCD screen you can now frame your shots properly and have peace of mind you got the shot you had envisioned.


When it comes to the battery life, it's not the best. I would recommend purchasing a few batteries to have as back up when planning to record. I've talked to other people who had earlier versions of GoPro cameras and they also complain that the battery life on those cameras weren't great as well. Hopefully this will change with future updated GoPro cameras.


So as mentioned there are two cameras within the GoPro Hero 4 series, the black and silver. What makes the GoPro Hero 4 Black different from the silver is that the Black can record 4k resolution video at 30 fps and 1080 at 120 fps compared to the Silver that records 4k at 15 fps, which ups the price on the Black camera!


Price.

The Go Pro Hero 4 Silver retails at $399 and the GoPro Hero 4 Black retails at $499. Of course you have factor in if you plan to purchase additional microSD cards, batteries, and selfie sticks/tripods, and GoPro accessories. You can purchase straight from GoPro or at Best Buy retailers.

My Thoughts.

I purchased this GoPro in 2014 and it's been on many of my travels across the globe. This camera was my entry into GoPro action cameras and its now a staple in my camera bag when going to shoot something. I initially bought it to capture under water photography and videography but I also have used it in other situations. It's such a versatile camera and I love the small size. It easily can fit into any of bags without taking up much space. The GoPro Hero 4 Silver has added a fun element into my videos and photography when I create content while traveling. I would see many creators use this camera in Youtube videos or see awesome photos on Instagram. I'm so glad I finally bought one after being a fan for many years! It's easy to use and worth the money in my opinion. There many videos online that help you with settings and tutorials on how to shoot unique photos and videos with this camera. You'll find endless resources to help guide you maximize the use of your GoPro!
