After nine years, GoPro has launched Hero 4 camera specifically for pro athletes and sports aficionados. Measuring 1.4-inch and weighing 2.3 ounce (almost half the size of GoPro's flagship camera), the latest camera is the lightest and tiniest GoPro camera ever launched.
Hero 4 is designed in such a way that any amateur can use the camera. It features a single button to start and stop recording. The light weight also means that it can be mounted on bicycles or the existing GoPro mounts.
The camera sacrifices LCD screen and hence the clicked videos and images can only be seen when connected to a smartphone via GoPro app or GoPro smart-remote.
Hero 4 can shoot 2,560x1,440 pixel resolution video at 30 frames per second (fps), 1,920x1,080 pixels at 60fps and 1,280x720 pixels videos at 100fps. The latest camera can also shoot 8mp still images at 10fps in burst mode and time-lapse photographs in 0.5-60 seconds duration.
GoPro claims that the battery will provide two hours of 1,080p video @30fps in full charge. The Hero 4 will retail for $399.99 (over ₹25,000) and will be available from 12 July onwards across the world.
