The Verdict
The GoPro Hero4 Black is sure to become a market leader and the benchmark by which the competition will be judged. The picture quality is amazing in such a small camera and is its major selling point: 4k and HD footage with ¼ speed available for slow-motion viewing is a giant step forward in action cameras.
