GoPro HERO4 features

The GoPro Hero 4 is a small camera that takes the best qualities of point-and-shoots and camcorders and packs them into a rugged frame that’s smaller, waterproof, and virtually indestructible. There are two versions of the GoPro HERO 4, silver and black. The Silver version has a built-in touchscreen — a first for a GoPro camera, but the Hero 4 has the edge when it comes to resolutions, frame rates, and bit rates.
