The GoPro Hero 4 release date is expected to fall around mid-October and should be the best action camera yet. These expectations are not only thanks to the GoPro boss hinting at this being the biggest launch to date, but also thanks to the rumored GoPro Hero 4 specs hinting at a really nice upgrade perfect for surfing.
There’s plenty of alternatives to GoPro, but surfers trust the action camera more than any other. This includes attaching the extreme sports camera to RC helicopters, RC planes, and also surf mounts. This is why the new GoPro Hero 4 model will be of interest to surfers around the world.
The new GoPro Hero 4 specs are expected to include the ability to record 4K video at 30fps (up from 15fps), 720p at 240fps (up from 120fps) and 1080p at 120fps (up from 60fps). The latest hardware should include a new SoC Ambarella A9 1GHz chip and FPU accelerator, which allows for streaming effortlessly in social media and with wireless connections.
You should find many advancements within the GoPro Hero4 specs like a 13MP photo sensor, improved MCTF, electronic image stabilisation, HDR WDR tone mapping and Multi-Exposure along with a new lens for capturing footage at night. We are hearing about remote viewfinder playback featuring as well with the new product.
