Camera Review - GoPro HERO4 Silver Action Camera

GoPro HERO4 Silver Edition GoPro HERO4 Silver Edition

GoPro HERO4 Silver Action Camera Price: RM1,899.00 Special Price: RM1,799.00 Overview

Second only to the HERO4 Black Edition in terms of video quality, the HERO4 Silver brings award winning video quality and an LCD Touchscreen which has it reigning supreme as the most versatile action camera on the market.

Everything about the GoPro and what it comes with speaks of the company's attention to detail and emphasis on quality. While you will pay more for a GoPro than it's competitors, the general consensus is that it's well worth the money, which is what you would expect of a company with 15 years of experience in building action cameras and counting.

Footage - 9/10

Hands down, the Silver has the best image quality. GoPro is still overwhelmingly the choice for professional level production tasks. Though it's close with the VIRB we always see that the GoPro manages to capture more detail and Protune is highly desirable for getting the most out of footage in the editing phase.

Usability - 9/10

The HERO4 Silver sets the standard for action cameras, but also embodies all the shortcomings that action cameras have in the limit of having so few buttons. Having a touchscreen is good in theory but we find ourselves mostly using the physical buttons because the touchscreen has some input latency. Compared to everything else, it sits head and shoulders above the competition when it comes to sheer number of photo and video settings.

Accessories - 8/10

Comes with a generous number of accessories in the box and has been around long enough that the market offers a wide range of accessories that will adapt it to anything a user needs it to do.

Value 8/10

Overall, the Silver is expensive but arguably worth every cent but the vast majority of users will never use most of what a HERO4 Silver is capable of.

If you believe in the principal of "buy nice or buy twice", the GoPro is the camera for you.
