GoPro Hero4 Silver takes the gold

 

With excellent video quality, a long list of video, still and time-lapse options and a built-in touchscreen, the Hero4 Silver is the GoPro we'd pick to shoot with.

The GoPro Hero4 Silver produces some great video for an action cam. Its abundant resolution and frame-rate options will satisfy beginners and experienced shooters. The built-in touchscreen makes previewing and reviewing and changing settings a breeze.

It still needs a housing to be waterproof. Battery redesign means you can't use your old batteries and battery life will still be too short for some. No option for in-camera digital image stabilization.

The GoPro Hero4 Silver takes everything we liked about the Hero3+ Black -- especially the solid video quality -- and adds in some handy new features including a touchscreen, making it one of the best little action cameras around.

GoPro Hero 4 Silver Edition: Australian Review

 

For as long as there have been cameras, people have been pointing them at themselves doing stupid things. The best new way to do that is with the GoPro Hero 4 Silver.

Great image quality ; Enormous array of mounts ; Excellent all-rounder

Expensive ; Average battery life ; Non-standard charger

There’s no two ways about it: the GoPro range is pricier than ever. The Hero 4 Silver is $498 from Australia’s GoPro distributor.

Didn't regret buying this instead of Hero 4 Black

 

Bought this for holiday photos and videos. It was the best gadget I've ever purchased for a holiday. Very convenient for its light-weight and size. The LCD display was a big bonus when framing shots. The specs are slightly below the Black version but...

Great little camera - I no longer pack the bulky digital cameras

 

ty for such a small camera. Relatives have scoffed that such a small camera would be able to take quality photos when we got the family together for a reunion. The wide angle lense made short work of shuffling people in tight to make sure they were in...

Great Action Cam

 

The touch screen is a handy feature on this camera, the Video quality is great better than I thought it would be. The Gopro app and connectivity work well on my Samsung S5 but the battery life is quite poor. All in all I love my action Cam I would...

Little beauty!

 

Purchased in July 2015 and been using it almost every weekend since! Great product with its handy touch screen at the back in my opinion is much better than the Black edition. Video quality is powerful enough with 15fps 4k (which isnt really needed), i...
