So if you have a Hero4 Silver or Black in hand (GoPro makes a more affordable Hero, but the Silver and Black let you adjust settings that help with low-light shots), and want to try out the nighttime modes, here are some of Custer’s tips on how the GoPro team does it. While the Hero4 Silver and Black’s settings can be adjusted using buttons on the camera, it’s far easier to shoot at night if you use the GoPro app for iOS, Android and Windows Phone. Once you feel comfortable with your single shots, Custer says you can elevate to shooting nighttime lapses. One feature Custer says GoPro hasn’t talked about yet is a night-lapse interval that lets you take one photo every hour.
Custer is proud of the work GoPro’s engineering team did, requiring little-to-no post editing for most users. GoPro may be expanding their line of highly-popular wearable video cameras with the new GoPro Hero 4. While nothing official has been announced yet regarding the GoPro Hero 4, fans of the devices have speculated that the new model may be arriving as early as this October.
The camera is said to weigh 100 grams and feature the same GoPro ruggedness users have come to know and love, including improved impact-resistance and water-resistance of up to 60 meters, allowing users to record footage underwater.

I remember October 2013, when we were all excited to hear that GoPro Hero 3+ has been released. There were arguments about the technical specs, features and the appearance of GoPro Hero 4.
But before October 2014 ends, I am able to share a detailed GoPro Hero 4 Black Review with you. For detailed product reviews and scuba tips that will help you make more comfortable and safe dives, you can subscribe to our e-mail list by using the form located on the upright of this page. First of all, I want to introduce you the features of GoPro Hero 4 Black, those make it better than the whole GoPro family members.

There will be Mic Stand Mount and musical instrument mounts for Music edition in addition to the list. Below are the FAQs that you possibly have the same questions in mind before buying a GoPro Hero 4 Black.
As you can see, you can take professional looking photos and videos with such a little sized camera. Below are the pros and cons of GoPro Hero 4 Black, based on my personal GoPro Hero 4 Black experience. I want to introduce you a couple of accessories that would be handy for you for your GoPro Hero 4 Black. The company is run by CEO Nicholas Woodman and around 300 employees, many of which are extreme sports fanatics which is great as they are able to give hands on and credible feedback to each new camera as it is released. Type Go Pro into YouTube and you will see footage from skydivers, scuba divers, snow-boarders, skiers, surfers, bikers, drivers, mountain bikers and many more sports people. So, now you know who uses these cameras, let’s talk a bit more about the camera itself. I am only going to review the Black Edition Go Pro HD hero 3 here as that is what I have but please not that there are two cheaper editions, the Silver and the White Go Pro’s, that also have lesser specifications. Built-in Wi-Fi enables remote control via included Wi-Fi Remote or live video preview and remote control on Smartphones and tablets running the free GoPro app. New advanced camera settings: Looping video, Continuous Photo, Manual White Balance control, Protune Mode, allows to shoot photos while recording video and more.
My first thoughts when I took the Go Pro HD Hero from the box were “that is small”! As a stills camera, and after taking a few shots, I can take it or leave it…too random in its exposures and white balance for me although it works brilliantly as a time lapse camera. I have found that you really need to shoot stills in a well and uniformly lit environment to get the most out of it.
One of the first things I wanted to try, much like many who will buy this camera, was the 4k video albeit shooting at just 15fps. Alas, the only Micro SD card I had at first was a puny 2GB class 6 card which wouldn’t allow more than a few seconds recording at these super high resolutions.
After reading stories of how the old rear case once came undone and a naked Hero 2 fell to earth from 10,000 feet (and survived), I was pleased to see that there is now a 2-point mechanism for opening the rear door. Next thing was to try the camera out real-time which leads me neatly into the rest of this hands on review. I have read in a few forums that people are saying the difference in low light is barely noticeable and not worth the upgrade and cost. Well, I have done a quick comparison in the video below to show just how different these two cameras are. I honestly think I could use this little camera for ad-hoc, quick blog entries without the hassle of setting up all my usual kit.
Here is some more footage of the camera attached to the front of my car in very low light at dusk in Weymouth.
I can safely say, judging by the results, that the narrow view footage is just as clear as the wide footage…nice one! If you are doing time lapse, you only need to use the 5mp setting unless you really want the wide angle. However, this camera does have a tiny sensor and packing 12mp into that sensor should tell you not to expect great things as a photographer from this camera.
After working on these pics in Photoshop, amazingly the image pulled from HD footage was way better than that of the 12mp still! For me, the image pulled from footage is much more useable than the actual still image in some cases (which also has some purple fringing) as there is more detail all round…food for thought! If you use a larger image size for time lapse, you have more room to zoom in and out during processing to give a great impression of camera skill and trickery even when the film is processed at 1080p…nice.
I use slo mo quite a bit in my work and after the disappointment of not seeing 1080p 60fps with the new Canon EOS 5D Mark III, I was delighted to see it on the Go Pro HD Hero 3.


Not only that, but the addition of 720p at 120fps and WVGA at 240 fps had me hitting the “buy now” button quicker than a rat up a drainpipe! This was achieved by taking 30 images and then performing ancient skulduggery in Photoshop.
2.7k at 30fps is much more usable but why I hear you say when we still only have 1080p TV’s?
Of course, like its predecessor, you can also operate the HD Hero 3 via your smartphone, Android or IOS.
The waterproof remote control unit comes with the Go Pro HD Hero 3 so no extra purchase is necessary although the Hero 3 is substantially more expensive than the Hero 2. Having the Wi-Fi built in to the already tiny body will be a bonus for those wanting to keep the camera as small and light as possible. Whether you are an extreme sports fan, amateur videographer or professional imaging geek, this camera should find its way into your kit bag at some point…it would be rude not to!

The constant innovation of cameras has given birth to various ways of taking pictures and recording videos. Just when you think video cameras won’t get any better, the best action camcorders were introduced. The VIRB Elite retained the excellent quality of the original device, but with added features.
Featuring a dome-shaped fixed lens, this camera is capable of recording a 360-degree fisheye view of the surroundings. The SP360 has a compact and rugged design that is also freezeproof at up to 14 degrees Fahrenheit. It features a 13.5MP sensor and 170-degree wide-angle lens that sets it apart from the rest. From the name itself, you can pretty much guess that this camera is designed for the rugged terrain and rough handling. What makes Drift HD one of the best action cameras, despite the low waterproof feature (3m only)?
If you’re looking for a camera that you can use on any terrain, JVC’s Adixxion cam would be it. But after a day spent capturing epic heli-skiing runs in the Alps or supernaturally fast motorcycle-racing on the Isle of Man, the Hero assumes another role when the sun goes down. GoPro set out specifically to see if a small-sensor camera so sensitive that it can capture night scenes and the Milky Way.
Night Photo and Night Lapse were marketed as new features, and customers seem to have taken a shine to them.
Once users get the hang of shooting in low-light, he recommends they try the Protunes mode in the Hero4 Silver or Black, which is a semi-manual feature that lets you tinker with settings like ISO and color temperatures, especially if they want to move into fun shots like light painting. It’s useful if you want to cover a multi-day event, say a concert festival, and you want to document everything from the setup to teardown, and in-between. If you’re doing a night lapse, I definitely recommend video so you can combine those scenes together.
I got the Ferris wheel and the whole dock in the frame, but I want the Ferris wheel to be what I expose for.
I can probably find a spot off a rail that’s nearby and use a Jaws clamp, which are really handy, versatile, and maneuverable. Because our camera is pretty sensitive, dropping ISO lower means that I have more time to play with. For longer exposures, like we did a 24-hour one, we plugged in a battery brick using USB – you just keep that guy running the whole time. The GoPro cameras are favorites among those who desire hands-free wearable recording devices in rugged or extreme conditions, such as skydiving, biking, and boating, or even recording in hostile environments such as war-zones or disaster areas. As the Hero 2, Hero 3, and the Hero 3+ cameras were all released in Q4 of previous years, it stands to reason that the company may roll out its next model around that time.
Rumored tech specs include a 13-megapixel camera, a 1GHz dual-core Cortex A9 processor (previously said to be an A7 processor), an improved lens, and the ability to record video in 4k resolution at 30 frames per second. This is the latest offering from a dynamic company that started 10 years ago with a vision of creating the world’s most versatile camera, and I think they are just about there!
Also, check out any episode of Top Gear in the UK and you will more than likely see a Go Pro attached to one of the cars as it speeds around their track. Even Felix Baumgartner had one strapped inside his Space-Suit when he leapt 128,100 feet back to Earth from Space in October 2012. I also have some crazy, inspirational and off-the-wall ideas for the future using my Go Pros. Go to Go Pro’s website for more information on those (personally, I would stump up the extra cash for the Black Edition…oh yes, I did)!
I can’t believe that Go Pro have packed so much into this tiny little camera which is about the same size as a matchbox, it is now 30% smaller, 25% lighter and 2x more powerful and it shows. I would rather pick stills from footage and use those for the web than use the camera in most instances. Also, shooting at 2.7k 30fps will be exciting as it will allow me to stabilize or crop footage and still get to 1080p resolution. I ordered and have now received a 32GB SanDisk Ultra Micro SDHC-1 Class 10 card from Amazon and will be using that from now on.
Obviously smaller than the Hero and Hero 2 casings but now fashioned with a nice flat port for the lens which will allow for much clearer, sharper footage underwater. Once you get used to it…a piece of cake and quite reassuring although admittedly I have never had a problem with the old housings.
I also tested the three different focal lengths (or fields of view), namely wide, medium and narrow as someone had asked if this was a genuine focal zoom or simply a digital zoom and crop. This may be because I am a pro photographer and more used to the quality from the Canon EOS 5D Mark II but it is unfair to make any comparisons. Well, as you saw above, the 4k cin Pro Tune mode is good for pulling stills and also gives you 12fps.
I suspect this is because in order to get such fast fps, a fast shutter speed is needed which will produce darker images once the aperture is wide open in certain lighting conditions…I think.
Well, I for one, sometimes stabilize my footage in post production and by doing this, you need to crop out some of the image. This means you can add the extra battery pack AND have Wi-Fi without having to make the compromise.


All I would like to see now is live streaming added as a possible firmware upgrade at some point like the top of the range Contour. New cards required, and make them class 10 or higher as larger resolutions and quicker frame rates won’t work so well with slower cards.

Well it depends on your budget and what review you read, have a look at our Top 10 HD Action Cameras that are available today. With more settings and functionality that are packed into a single device, anyone can now shoot as far or as close to a subject and still get amazing clips.
These are video equipment that lets you record the most action-packed adventure and then upload them online for everyone to drool over.
But because GoPro never fails to disappoint where enhanced features are concerned, expect the 3+ to be even better.
A whole range of sensors was added to accompany its 16MP 1080p video recording and Full-HD video. In addition to that, it comes with multiple modes to show how an image is unfolded and viewed. It is also waterproof up to depths of 197′ and it comes with a variety of mounting accessories. Add to this the accompanying case that will transform the device into a shock, water and dust-proof equipment, the AS100V trumps some the best action cameras, GoPro Hero 3+ Black Edition included. It may not be as impressive as Geonaute’s 100m waterproof feature, but the 60m waterproof and 1.5m shockproof combination is a killer. It is equipped with an audio technology that reduces wind interference, resulting in crisp and crystal clear sound input.
It has proofing for just about any type of external elements, such as water, shock, dust and snow. Take into account the kind of adventure you want to indulge in while filming, to help you make the right choice. According to GoPro’s own metrics, night photography is the third most popular use for its Hero4 Black and Silver cams, beating out regular time-lapse and burst. Kevin Custer, a product manager for GoPro’s Media Production division who works on low-light photography, recalls the team’s earliest efforts. Without prior knowledge of shooting night photography, Custer says, casual users are still able to capture great-looking shots (albeit with some experimenting and trial-and-error). So I always recommend, if you’re completely new to night photo long exposures, start fiddling with Night Photo Auto and up to 2-second exposures – that just means the exposure will be open for a full 2 seconds. I use the Hero4 Silver quite often when I’m doing light painting because while the app is really handy, sometimes it’s nice to review off the camera. Dropping ISO down to 100 means I can start busting out 10 to 15-second long exposures, and probably start there. The GoPro cameras are popular among extreme athletes, adventurers, and journalists alike, and are also frequently used for professional applications such as military and law enforcement. So, if you were at an event with fast action, you are better off shooting at 15fps 4k and pulling stills in my opinion. When shooting 1080p footage, this means when I render out, I either need to render to 720p or lose some clarity and detail at 1080p. The trouble with the Hero 2 was that I had to choose one or the other depending on the shoot.
I think this is one of the most exciting and advance gadgets to hit the market in years and if you use your imagination a little, the possibilities are amazing (how about shooting 360 degree footage with 4 Go Pro’s?). If you reside in an EU member state besides UK, import VAT on this purchase is not recoverable. It is small and lightweight by 20%, has a clearer audio, SuperView shooting mode perfect for wide-angle shots, and a better battery life. On top of these, the VIRB elite is now capable of recording GPS, identifying altitude and measuring speed.
The viewing options include: 360-degree panorama mode, full circular fisheye view, dual front 180-degree and rear 180 degree mode for capturing POV and reactions. Its wide-angle lens can film a video in1080p at 60fps, which can be uploaded through Wi-Fi. And because it doesn’t have additional housing, you can shoot a full 1080p HD video with ease through the Super-Wide Lens.
I can turn on the spot meter and point the camera at the Ferris wheel, so my exposure and the brain in the camera is prioritizing the Ferris wheel over anything else.
I can shoot a night-lapse and see the light trail, and see it stop to let people get off and get back on. I take one photo, wait for it to encode, scope it out, and if the exposure is looking good, and I like the trails that are being created, I’d probably use those modes. On the second dive, I turned off the Wi-Fi and I was able to record my dive for 1 hours and 10 minutes.
If you look at the review and watch some of the tests you will be able to see the difference for yourself. But with the new Actioncam S-50 from Rollei, you won’t have to feel like getting a massage after filming.
As for the quality itself, the Air Pro 3 boasts of 1080p video at 60fps and super-wide 160-degree lens. And, whatever footage made will be viewed instantly through its 2-inch LCD screen that is made of tough Gorilla Glass and other scratch-proof materials.
This is because the equipment just measures 25mm, with a design that is intended to fit in your pocket.
The only downside is that it has to be mounted to a helmet or something that will hold the camera according to its shape. Its wrist-worn remote also allows you to hit record, stop, save and play, among others.Moreover, the Drift HD comes with a Wi-Fi where you can change the settings, and Android and iOS apps that let you share video and content. Really elegant interface – simple filters but a lot of powerful tools to really edit and customize the look of your pictures. It’s also integrated with a Wi-Fi and extra-slim lens that make underwater shots look razor sharp. With all these amazing features, it’s no wonder that the Actionman S-50 remains one of the best action cameras. Too bad there’s no simple sliding mechanism to turn it on and off with a lock, or rotating lens that gives you any angle you want. Different cases, mounts, floaties, poles, adhesives, angle mounts, extra batteries, separate charging cable because its not a microusb.
