GoPro HERO4 Revealed! 4K Video at 30FPS and the First Built-In Touch Display

The rumor mill is abuzz with speculation, but we have the first full scoop on the GoPro HERO4.
As many have reported, the two big features that are appearing are 4K video recording at 30FPS and a built-in touch display.

Unfortunately, these two features won’t be appearing in the same camera. Instead, there will be two models: the HERO4 Black (shown above) and the HERO4 Silver (shown below).

HERO4 Black
The HERO4 Black is a powerhouse action camera that doubles the performance of the previous GoPro (yet again). Touted as “the most advanced GoPro ever,” it has improved image quality and a 2x more powerful processor.
The Black will capture 4K video at 30 frames per second, up from the 15fps of previous GoPros, allowing for extremely high-quality footage that’s much more usable for a wide variety of applications.
Here are the available resolutions and frame rates: 4K at 30fps, 2.7K at 50fps, 1440p at 80fps, 1080p at 120fps, 960p at 120fps, and 720p at 120fps. It appears the…

Unveiled: Canon EOS 7D Mark II

The wait is over. Canon has just announced the update to the groundbreaking EOS Canon 7D DSLR, which has been the Canon APS-C workhorse for over five years. The new EOS 7D Mark II DSLR Camera, with a number of significant improvements, is sure to please 7D shooters looking to upgrade or those ready to make the move to one of the best crop sensor DSLRs available.

For starters the APS-C CMOS sensor on the 7D Mark II has been bumped up to contain 20.2MP of effective pixels compared to the 18.0MP of the 7D and the processors skip a generation to include dual DIGIC 6 image processors. These two processors give the 7D Mark II its impressive image quality and low light capability in video as well as stills, and also provide its very fast performance speed which includes continuous full resolution shooting up to 10 fps. The sensitivity range has also been expanded for minimized noise in low-light capture; it runs from ISO 100-16000 but can be expanded to an ISO 51200 equivalenc…

Our specifications for the EOS 7D Mark II look to be confirmed. You can get our full specification list here. There’s nothing really new here, other than the max ISO being 16000, which we thought this was a typo in our information and changed it in our spec list. The other new feature we see is the intervalometer. I expect to see this camera announced on Monday with availability in late October or early November.
