See the new Epic video promo is the usual GoPro style of embracing life as a constant adventure, a prospect, which made the cameras so popular among sport & outdoor fanatics.

GoPro HERO4: The Adventure of Life in 4K (make sure to watch in 2160p for highest quality)

It’s great to finally see a 4K/30p capable GoPro, but the fact that they gave the Touch-display to the Silver edition instead of the Black edition, which is more expensive and more geared towards professional usage is a bit baffling to me. I wish they come up with a similar solution in the future, until then we have to get LCD backpacks for the Hero4 Black in order to see what’s in frame. There’s some significant audio improvements in the cameras apart from improvements in the video acquisition side such as higher resolutions (4K/30p, 2.7K50p) but also 1080p/120 and substantially reduced rolling shutter.
