New GoPro Hero4 Silver

I’ve had a standard definition GoPro since probably summer of 2011 when the company first produced a digital version.  Their first small cameras actually used film!  My little GoPro didn’t get too much use because about the same time, everything else was going High Def (HD) so I purchased a Sony cam corder that was about the size of the palm of my hand and shot awesome footage.

But now, I’m all about the GoPro again.  The company has done a ton of development and has gained customer base in just about all the sports and crazy things folks do around this globe.  Yes, there are several competitors out there including Sony who has a very small and capable wearable camera.

Once the GoPro guys were able to capture 2.7K HD and do it at 60 fps, I had to take a look.  This coupled with the pretty much unlimited supply of mounting options (all my old mounts would work with this new camera too), I was in.

I used some Health Points from a work program and turned them into a Amazon Gift Card worth $200.00, combined that with $139.00 and I had a GoPro Hero 4 Silver on the way with Prime 2-day shipping to boot!  Sweet!

The newer GoPros have a LED back panel for viewing the shot live and also replaying existing footage and also for the menus. It’s a touch screen. Very handy

There will be many more post as I learn the ins and outs of this little gem, but I’ll leave you with this quick video of a winter sun-set in northern VA.  Until next time, take care all!  – Clay
