More Information

Professional video, stills, and sound

  • The HERO4 Silver Edition (SE) and Protune deliver minimally compressed, cinema-calibre video optimized for professional productions, capturing 4K15, 2.7K30, 1440p48, 1080p60, 960p100, and 720p120 fps. So whether you're racing to the finish line on your first full marathon, snowshoeing in the backcountry, or just capturing your road trip through Rockies, you've got the flexibility to capture high-definition video.
  • Get the creative freedom you need to expand your videos and photos. Protune gives you manual control over colour, ISO limit, exposure, and more so you can experiment and create truly original photos and videos.
  • The 12MP image sensor takes high-quality still images, perfect for taking selfies or group photos. Plus the HERO4 SE has a 30fps burst mode and a time lapse mode that takes photos at set intervals between 0.5-60 seconds for short, sharable videos. It's also great for gear-mounted photos when you can't reach the shutter button. Burst mode takes up to 30 photos in rapid succession so you can easily capture your friend's first successful free climb.
  • The audio system captures high-fidelity sound with incredible dynamic range. The system also features an audio algorithm that captures natural, smooth sound. The HERO4 SE is compatible with external professional, low-sensitivity microphones thanks to an integrated analog-to-digital convertor. That means you can easily record voiceovers, live music, or environmental sounds to add atmosphere to your videos for a more immersive experience.
  • Auto image rotation automatically adjusts capture orientation to right-side up when the camera is mounted upside down, ideal for when you're trying to get that underwater shot of the Loch Ness Monster.
  • SuperView captures the most immersive wide-angle field of view. So you know that shot of you standing in front of the Treasury at Petra captures you and the entire building in the photo.
  • Auto Low Light automatically adjusts frame rates for optimal low-light performance. Plus, Night Photo and Night Lapse mode let you customize your exposure settings. That means you'll get stunning images of the ice sculptures at the Harbin Ice Festival or capture the majesty of the Champs-Élysées at night.

Compact, light, and ready for action

  • You rely on the precision of your outdoor gear to get the best performance possible. Thankfully, the HERO4 SE is compact and lightweight so you can get images and video from all your adventures without the added weight of heavy camera gear.
  • Love the water? No problem. The rugged waterproof housing lets you take the camera on your watery adventures. Whether you're skimboarding at Laguna Beach or windsurfing at a lagoon off Boracay your HERO4 SE is protected to depths of 40m.
  • Get extreme video-capturing versatility with the functionality to wear and mount the GoPro HERO4 SE onto your gear. It comes with a quick release buckles, 1 curved adhesive mount, and 1 flat adhesive mount so you can easily attach it to a helmet, handlebar, or watercraft. Plus, the 3-way pivot arm gets you perfect angle you need to capture anything and everything.
  • There's nothing worse than running out of storage space or battery life when you're filming or photographing. Thankfully, the HERO4 SE has an expandable external memory card slot that supports Class 10 or UHS-I microSD cards up to 64GB. Plus the built-in battery delivers over up to 2 hours of record time. So you can easily capture your first BMX race in all its high-definition glory.

Controlled and connected

  • Built-in WiFi and Bluetooth let you connect your HERO4 SE to your smart device through the GoPro App or Smart Remote3 (sold separately). The apps give you easy access to all camera modes and settings, let you control the camera remotely, and make it a snap to view and share your content.
  • An integrated touchscreen display lets you preview photos, easily frame photos and video, play back your videos, and adjust settings all with a simple tap or swipe. The touchscreen gives you the flexibility to do more with your HERO4 SE when you can't take your mobile device with you.
  • A simple press of the shutter button turns on the camera and begins capturing video or photos automatically. With QuikCapture, you don't have to wonder whether or not your HERO4 SE is recording and question if you missed your friend's super sweet run down the mogul ski course.
  • A dedicated control button lets you quickly access and adjust camera settings. The menus are easy to navigate and very intuitive, meaning you spend less time setting up your camera and more time having fun. Plus, HiLight Tag lets you mark key moments while recording for easy playback, editing, and sharing.

It does what it is built for

I got this camera as a gift on my birthday and as a replacement to my old GoPro Hero 3+ white edition. It is an excellent sports/activity camera, very versatile and it does what it is built for but the battery life sucks, changing batteries in the middle of what you are filming (in a not very ideal circumstances) is my biggest challenge. And that helicopter sound when you are recording on wifi needs to be addressed. For the price, this camera should have been flawless. It serves the purpose though.

Great camera

I had previously purchased the gopro hero+ LCD and owned it for about 2 weeks after trying that one out I can say this camera is worth every dollar. The convenience of being able to remove the camera from the housing allowing for the storage of extra batteries is great! The video quality is also stunning and unless you really need the 4k30 then you will be more than satisfied with this camera!

Everything works except

Had an issue where there was a buzzing noise when the wifi is turned on while recording. Just got a second unit and still did the same thing. So I did some research and it turns out that this is a common problem. The solution is to keep exchanging it until you get one that works properly. I'm very disappointed with the amount of money it costs

Awesome Camer!

This is my first GoPro Camera so Im pretty impressed about it. The quality of video and pictures is outstanding. Battery life could be better anyway I would recommend to buy extra batteries if its planned to use it for long periods of time. In general term Im very happy. Best-buy delivery service it was pretty fast.

Steep learning curve

A beautifully made great camera with lots of options, most of which you won't use unless you're a real "Pro" photographer. Very fussy and may frustrate you when trying to connect to iPad or computer. Less is more.

Great for trips

I got this from my beautiful wife on our honeymoon while in Australia. Took it for a test run at an animal sanctuary in Sydney and was very impressed by the recording video and taking photos at the same time feature. The only downfall is that the battery life isn't too great so I would invest in another battery when you buy this. The led display also makes this thing easy to use .

Great Camera for all occasions

Got this camera for my Hawaii trip. quality of videos and pictures are amazing and I haven't even tried the 4K mode (need 4K tv to appreciate it). anyways the same is great, the screen though small is enough to let you preview things and makes going through the menu's much easier, battery life suffers because of the screen but you can extend it to certain degree playing with menus and all. I would recommend additional batteries and accessories. I shopped all that from Amazon got it for fraction of the price Go Pro charges. Its a pricey camera but its worth it, at least for me. PS: please do yourself a favour and buy Class 10 micro SD memory card that has more then 45mbps WRITE speed. (they often only advertise read speed which is always high) Cheers !!!
