GoPro HERO4: Pro-quality capture. Simply the best. #HolidayGiftGuide #GoPro

“The featured product was provided free of charge to facilitate my review, but all opinions are 100% the opinion of the Coupon Savvy Sarah family.”

Our family shares a love a photography and we are always taking pictures, especially being a blogger - it comes with the job. Rose has been taking pictures since she was about nine and I still remember the shocked look at people's faces when I handed our daughter our expensive camera and set her loose. I wasn't concerned because the rule was that both hands had to be on the camera and the strap always around her neck. She takes some amazing pictures and it is awesome to see things from her perspective because she thinks to capture shots I wouldn't have. Now pair our love of photography with my daughter and husband's love of martial arts? I am always trying to capture action shots of spinning crescent kicks, breaking boards and other moves but since I am always at a distance in the crowd so I can't capture all the moments! 

I have been dreaming about owning a GoPro Hero camera for over a year because of the amazing shots I have seen it can capture - Simply amazing! With the GoPro Hero4 you won't miss a moment by capturing everything with that speed. 

What makes the HERO4 Black stand out above the rest?

  • HERO4 Black takes Emmy Award-winning GoPro performance to the next level with their best image quality yet, plus a 2x more powerful processor that delivers super slow motion at 240 frames per second. Incredible high-resolution 4K30 and 2.7K60 video combines with 1080p120 and 720p240 slow motion to enable stunning, immersive footage of you and your world.
  • 4K30, 2.7K60, 1080p120, 720p240—HERO4 Black is the first camera of its kind to feature ultra high-resolution, high frame rate video as powerful as this. Once the exclusive domain of large, costly cameras, HERO4 Black delivers truly professional video quality in a tiny package. Stunning clarity. Liquid-smooth slow-motion playback. Cinema-quality capture.
  • With 12MP Burst photos at a blistering 30 frames per second, HERO4 Black helps you capture the moments you don’t want to miss. Capture single photos, or choose Time Lapse mode to shoot photos automatically at set time intervals from 0.5 to 60 seconds—great for gear-mounted shots when the shutter button is out of reach.
  • Capture the night sky in a whole new way. New Night Photo and Night Lapse modes offer customizable exposure settings of up to 30 seconds for single and Time Lapse photos. Whether you’re shooting the Milky Way or a campfire hangout, Night Photo and Night Lapse allow you to you capture ultra low-light scenes like never before. 
  • HERO4 Black features built-in Wi-Fi and Bluetooth, allowing you to connect to the GoPro App, Smart Remote2 and more. The GoPro App transforms your phone or tablet into a live video remote for your camera, offering full control of all functions and settings, easy shot preview and playback, plus sharing via text, email, Facebook and more. The Smart Remote allows you to control multiple GoPro cameras from distances of up to 600’ (180m).  
  • Be ready to capture the moment at a moment’s notice with new QuikCapture mode. It turns your GoPro into a one-button camera, allowing you to power on and start recording automatically with the press of a single button. Press once to record video, press and hold for 2 seconds to capture Time Lapse photos. Never worry again about missing an epic shot. 

Our Thoughts:

Some of my favorite features on my GoPro HERO4 are the simplified menus - makes it easy to navigate the camera. The free GoPro App and GoPro Studio software are awesome (and did I mention free?). There is built-in Wi-Fi + Bluetooth connectivity for the GoPro App and the app allows you to control your camera remotely using your phone or tablet, view and share your content and the GoPro Studio allows you to create and share your own videos - even amazing time lapse videos from photos you have captured. The different light settings are pretty incredible too - you can basically capture high quality, premium shots in any light. Oh - and it's waterproof too (up to 131 feet). GoPro has a wide array of accessories such as the handy tripod mount that I really like - especially since I can use the smart remote and control the camera from up to 600 feet away. You will need to purchase a memory card for the the camera because it's not included.

The GoPro HERO4 camera is available at most major retailers nationwide like Best Buy, Walmart and Target, in addition to being online through their website and on Amazon.
