Stuff Singapore - - Apple vs. Android -

It’s small, it’s tough, it’s pow­er­ful, and it’s con­nected. GoPro HERO cam­eras are here to stay. Even with the slew of com­peti­tors out there, the ac­tion cam­era that spawned the cat­e­gory it­self is still hold­ing its ground as king of the prover­bial moun­tain users have been shoot­ing their ex­treme ac­tiv­i­ties on. Three gen­er­a­tions later, the lat­est HERO4 lineup of GoPro cam­eras has just ar­rived in style, pack­ing twice the power and ca­pa­bil­i­ties into the same lit­tle pack­age.

The cam­eras in the new HERO4 line share some ex­cit­ing new fea­tures, such as a semi-man­ual mode called Protune for users to ad­just set­tings like colour, sharp­ness, ISO limit and ex­po­sure. The first gen­er­a­tion of GoPro cam­eras were used like so: check for red flash­ing light; point in gen­eral di­rec­tion of in­ter­est; and down­load the videos on your com­puter to see them in High Def­i­ni­tion glory. How­ever, you now get to see what you’re shoot­ing or cap­tured in­stantly, as the HERO4 SIL­VER comes equipped with a built-in touch dis­play. You can now con­trol the cam­era the way you’ve been con­trol­ling your smart­phone for even greater ease of use.

How­ever, the most im­me­di­ately use­ful ad­di­tion is prob­a­bly Quik­cap­ture, which al­lows you to go straight into ei­ther im­age or video record­ing when you power on the cam­era, per­fect for times some spon­ta­neous ac­tion takes place.

Of course, you won’t know which HERO4 suits your needs best if you don’t try them out, so pop on down to Out­door Sports Travel to give them a go.
