Last month, we wrote about GoPro’s CES announcement highlighting upcoming firmware Hero4 updates. Well, it’s here, folks. It launched on February 4th. Get the most out of your GoPro HERO4 with this latest software update. Here’s what you can expect once you make the update:
New Modes + Features
Time Lapse Video mode added
Auto Image Rotation added
30 photos/6 seconds Burst rate added
720p240 video mode added (Narrow FOV only) – Black Edition Only
2.7K60 video mode added – Black Edition Only
Changes Protune default video ISO to 1600
Adds Reset option for camera Wi-Fi settings
Displays Night Lapse shutter time on the camera status screen
LCD Touch BacPac Improvements
Delivers the ability to add HiLight Tags during playback
Adds new gesture to display the last photo or video captured
Automatically locks the display after the camera goes to sleep
General Improvements + Bug Fixes
Night Lapse stability improvements
One of the most interesting features has to be the addition of 720p240 video mode to allow for slow-motion. With GoPro's image quality already being top-notch, slowing things down will make for some seriously impactful footage.
Here's an example of what it looks like.
Do you have a HERO4 and have made the update? What's your favorite feature? If you have interesting footage, we'd love to see it!
Customer Cla Tschenett recently shared the final video showing the construction and capabilities of his family’s company, Tschenett AG. They decided to build a new hall/workshop in their village of Müstair, Switzerland to have more space for the daily business: roof constructing, plumbing and heating installations. The new hall is large enough to allow growth to a new offering: Waterjet cutting.
