A few quibbles are worth overlooking to get a high resolution camera you can mount anywhere. Pros: + can produce really great video. + small size and flexible mounting options allow you to record some stunning things. Cons: + the front lcd is small and not backlit. It’s like the kind of display you would get on a £10 casio watch in the 1980s. Impossible to read in low light and hard to use even in ideal conditions. Makes the use of the smart remore or at least the smartphone app almost necessary. At higher resolutions, i get a little over an hour out of mine. If your plan is to start it running and then record a bunch of pov footage, that will run out quickly.

A technical step up from previous generation gopro’s with good ease-of-use. I’m writing this review for the hero 4 black. Annoyingly amazon has grouped all reviews together despite the hero 4 products all being very different. As a user of the hero 3 black and now as a user of the hero 4 black, i have some knowledge of the progression of that has been made with the hero 4 black so will be reviewing on this basis. Os menu operation:the os on the hero 4 series is a much more user friendly system to use which makes scrolling through the gopro’s menu much easier. Previously to change from video to photo mode, or more usually, to change video settings or system settings (i have never used the gopro’s still camera mode on purpose) it had been a two button affair, one to cycle and one to select which meant that you had to click to cycle through the various menus and sub menus. When cycling through, if you missed the option you wanted you had to go all the way through the options again which was a real pain. So now with the hero 4, operating the menu is done via 3 buttons. One to select, one to scroll and one to cycle. Now if i’m on the video menu, i just press the side button (the dedicated ‘settings’ button) which brings up the appropriate settings menu allowing me to switch resolutions, view perspective or frame rate instantly etc.

Chosen as it was £50 cheaper than anywhere else at the time, just so happens i needed motorcycle mounts too. Works well with a 4k tv too.

Product seems good, still learning how it all works. Fast delivery, product seems good, still learning how it all works.

There are plenty of other reviews out there on which one to get and why and on the similar or better alternatives. But there is a lot to say about being one of the de facto standards in any market, not least the 3rd party kit options. This is where the gopro has a lead over its rivals. The 3rd party options for the others will catch up, no doubt, but for now when you think action camera gopro is still the answer. Well the 4 is cheaper, everything still works, firmware update/downloads are still pushed out by gopro at the moment even though it’s missing from the line up on their website. All the apps and software still work (if you use them) and it’s just as good as the hero5, so is the price hike worth the minimal incremental features the 5 gives you?.

Extremely reliable durable camera. Having used this nearly every day on professional shoots i have to say i love this camera. As an action camera it has to be durable but this has withstood being hit by titanium at high speed, dropped from impressive heights and even extreme humidity, and works perfectly.
