Go-Pro Hero 4 Silver Review

The Bottom Line

The GoPro Hero4 Silver takes everything we all liked about the Hero3+ Black especially the ridged design and solid video quality, then adds in some new handy features such as:

– Free App / Editor (very easy to use and complete film edit templates included)

– Touchscreen (Added 3-second hold slide to open, so none of those accidental clips missed)

– Waterproofed housing to 131 feet (40 meters)

– 4K Filming with time-lapse mode and 13MP still camera

– Housing buttons to easily film by the touch of a button

The Con's

Unfortunately compared to the Hero 4 Black it still needs housing to be waterproof however, I found the housing not too bad. The housing makes sound very distorted with not much room to work with in terms of audio when editing. 

 

There seems to be no option for in-camera digital image stabilisation.

The Pro's

The GoPro Hero 4 Silver produces some amazing 4K video footage for an action camera… It is most certainly my number one bit of kit to have if you are a creative photographer or action extremist. With its aesthetical design, resolution and frame-rate options will more than satisfy beginners all the way to experienced shooters. The built-in touchscreen makes previewing, reviewing and changing settings so easy it’s like having a mini smartphone and even has a FREE app to connect, plus free studio editor!

5/5
