An improved audio system now increases the dynamic range, and the built-in analog to digital convertor and compatibility with various microphones will ensure that the sound captured is to your liking.
The Hero 4 Black edition also addresses one of the major issues we have had with cameras: a single button not only turns it on, but also starts recording the moment you press it, ensuring that you don’t miss a moment. In addition to a quick start, the Black edition can capture still images at 12 megapixels at 30 frames per second speed.
It does not stop here. The Hero 4 Black edition now has the capability to adjust from a dark scene to a bright scene automatically, and the improved sensor handles low-light situations so amazingly well that you can even use it to capture the night sky and the Milky Way.
The Black edition unit comes with the camera, as also a standard housing unit, a rechargeable battery, curved and flat adhesive mounts, plus a 3-way pivot arm. You will need to buy a high-speed microSD card separately, though. Its bilt-in Wi-Fi and Bluetooth feature allow you to use your smartphone as a trigger, or use a Bluetooth remote control. If you like having a screen on top of the camera, the LCD comes at an additional $79.99.
The huge range of mounting accessories that are available for the GoPro allow you to take it anywhere and mount the camera on almost anything— on a pole, on the dashboard of your car, or on your headgear—to capture all your outdoor moments.
