Gear Preview: GoPro Hero 4 Black

When GoPro came out with their Hero4, the action sports world practically fainted with excitement. Promising cinema-quality video and a plethora of creative mounting options, the Hero4 can turn any kayaker into a filmmaker overnight.

While the 4k/30fps frame rate has all the ultra-high-definition beauty you want at a wide angle, using the 2.7k/24fps at the me- dium lens angle means you can shoot dreamy action sequences. The matchbox-sized camera also features Night Photo and Night Lapse to capture après-paddle time-lapse sequences by the camp- fire. All the camera’s features can be controlled by a smartphone using GoPro’s free app.
