Product Detail
HERO4 Black features improved image quality and a 2x more powerful processor with 2x faster video frame rates, taking the Emmy® Award-winning GoPro performance to a whole new level. Incredible high-resolution 4K30 and 2.7K604 video and high frame rate 1080p120 video enable stunning, immersive footage of you and your world. New Protune™ settings for both photos and video unlock manual control of Color, ISO Limit, Exposure and more. Waterproof to 131’ (40m) with 12MP photos at a blistering 30 frames per second and improved audio,1 HERO4 Black is the ultimate life-capture solution.

With a 2x more powerful processor, 2x faster video frame rates and even better image quality than its best-selling predecessor, HERO4 Black delivers footage that’s sharper, richer and more detailed.  Combined with powerful new features and technologies—and improvements to audio, usability, wireless connectivity and more—HERO4 Black is the most advanced, highest-performing GoPro ever.

From fun summertime peelers at your local break to perfect almond-eye barrels in Indo—the included Surfboard Mount allows you to capture immersive POV footage of your session. The FCS plug mount can be used to attach the camera to an FCS center fin socket, while the camera tether adds an extra layer of security in heavy surf.



Featuring a powerful new audio system, HERO4 Black captures clean, high fidelity sound. Its cutting-edge microphone delivers nearly 2x the dynamic range, while a best-in-class audio algorithm ensures your recordings sound smoother and more natural than ever.1 Plus, with its new, integrated ADC (analog-to-digital converter), HERO4 Black is compatible with a wider variety of professional low-sensitivity external mics3 for immersive stereo audio capture and enhanced performance, whether recording voices, an acoustic jam session or a live show.
