GoPro Hero4 Black's video still the best in the category

 

It's expensive, the battery life can be brief and the design might not be ideal, but GoPro's top camera continues to lead in video quality.

The GoPro Hero4 Black delivers best-in-class video at resolutions up to 4K at 30fps or 1080p at 120fps. Wide assortment of mounting options from GoPro and third-party manufacturers.

Battery life can feel painfully short and due to a redesign you can't use older batteries with the Hero4. No option for in-camera digital image stabilization and it still needs a housing to be waterproof.

The GoPro Hero4 Silver is still our top choice for most people, but if you need the best video quality with the most shooting options, the Hero4 Black is it.

GoPro Hero4 Black

 

The GoPro Hero4 Black is small enough to fit in the palm of your hand and only weighs 87g, or 152g with the protective case. Don't be deceived by its tiny size, this little camera captures amazingly vivid and sharp video. The lens has a fixed f2.8...

Ultra HD 30fps

Expensive

It’s an amazing piece of kit, but the GoPro Hero4 Black is overkill if you’ll never shoot in more than 1080p. Make sure you weigh it up against the Hero4 Silver and the cheaper GoPro models to find the best match for your requirements and your budget.
