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


goprohero4
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).

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 these cameras are no longer capable of 240fps.
For still images, you’ll be able to capture 12 megapixel photos at 30 frames per second.

Audio capture is also improved, with the new system capturing 2x the dynamic range.
On the front of the camera is an ultra-wide angle glass lens, and the camera can be set to three different field-of-view settings: Ultra Wide, Medium, and Narrow.
There will be new manual settings for both photography and videography — controls such as color, ISO limit, exposure, and more.
The camera is waterproof down to 131 feet (40m). Other features include built-in Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, exposure settings for nighttime shooting, a “HiLight Tag” feature for marking key moments in footage, a QuikCapture feature for powering up and recording with one button press, and auto low light features.
Regarding the issue of backward compatibility, the Black and Silver will both be compatible with all GoPro mounts and accessories.

HERO4 Silver

On the video side, the Silver will be able to capture 4K at 15fps, 2.7K at 30fps, 1440p at 48fps, 1080p at 60fps, 960p at 100fps, and 720p at 120fps. 1080p60 and 720p120 video.
For still photography, the Silver will match the Black with 12 megapixel photos at 30 frames per second.
The other features (e.g. Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, HiLight Tag, QuikCapture, waterproofing) are pretty much the same as the HERO4 Black.

Other Accessories

Other accessories to be announced alongside the HERO4 include: a blackout housing that gives your camera a matte black finish for stealthy and low-glare shooting, a removable battery pack that gives your GoPro more juice, a dual battery charger for juicing two packs simultaneously, a wearable waterproof remote, and a grip that keeps your camera afloat.

Pricing and Availability

We haven’t heard anything in terms of pricing and availability, but our source tells us that the official announcement date for the GoPro HERO4 cameras will most likely be October 8th, 2014.

20.2 Megapixel CMOS (APS-C) sensor and ISO 100–16000
The EOS 7D Mark II has a newly designed 20.2 Megapixel sensor that delivers high-resolution image files with stunning detail and impressive clarity. Optimized for low-light shooting, the EOS 7D Mark II’s sensor captures images at up to ISO 16000 (expandable to H1: 25600, H2: 51200) with remarkably low noise, thanks to its improved, higher sensitivity design. Phenomenal for stills, the EOS 7D Mark II’s sensor is equally up to the task for movies, delivering Full HD capture even at rates of up to 60p.

Dual DIGIC 6 Image Processors
The EOS 7D Mark II’s sensor works seamlessly with its Dual DIGIC 6 Image Processors for advanced image processing across the board. These image processors help the EOS 7D Mark II capture up to 1090 JPEG, 31 RAW, and 19 RAW + JPEG shots in a single burst for amazing action photography. Further, they enable the camera’s powerful image processing on-the-fly: lens aberration, variances in peripheral illumination and image distortion can all be corrected in real time thanks to the EOS 7D Mark II’s Dual DIGIC 6 Image Processors.
7d23
High speed continuous shooting up to 10.0 fps allows you to capture fast action
With a new, rugged shutter designed for 200,000 cycles, the EOS 7D Mark II can shoot up to 10 frames per second to capture all the action. With super quick AF and exposure systems complementing the shutter’s 55 msec shutter release time lag, the EOS 7D Mark II is tailored to meet and even exceed the speed of the action. Refined mechanics like a newly designed, more efficient shutter-drive motor and a vibration dampened mirror drive mean impressive performance for high caliber image quality, fast.
Sophisticated Mirror Control System
The EOS 7D Mark II camera employs an advanced mirror vibration control technology that enables the camera to support its speedy, continuous shooting capabilities while ensuring great image quality. The system uses a motor to help reduce the vibrations caused by high-speed shooting. By reducing the vibrations, the camera can achieve accurate and precise autofocus to provide steady and clear action shots at up to 10.0 frames per second.
65-point* all cross-type AF system for high-performance, accurate subject tracking with EV -3 sensitivity (center point) for focusing in extreme low-light conditions
An EOS first, the EOS 7D Mark II features 65 all cross-type AF points* for high precision AF at remarkable speed. Cross-type AF points ensure stable AF that is not influenced by the subject’s shape or color. On the EOS 7D Mark II, the AF points are spread over a wide area of the frame, enabling faster AF, wherever the subject lies. With a central dual cross-type AF point of f/2.8, AF is enhanced with lenses faster than f/2.8. And thanks to this new system, AF is possible even in dim lighting as low as EV-3.
Canon’s innovative Dual Pixel CMOS AF enables you to shoot video like a camcorder with smooth, fast, and accurate autofocus and lets you enjoy instant and precise autofocus even when shooting stills
The EOS 7D Mark II features Canon’s revolutionary Dual Pixel CMOS AF, a milestone in AF speed and accuracy that unlocks the potential of Live View shooting. This advanced technology has truly changed what is possible with a DSLR camera. Dual Pixel CMOS AF involves a sophisticated rethinking of the CMOS sensor. Traditionally, image sensors have one photodiode per pixel for recording, but the CMOS sensor on the EOS 7D Mark II has two photodiodes per pixel, 40 million in total, enabling each pixel on the sensor to both perform phase-difference detection autofocus and capture light. With phase-difference detection AF, autofocus is achieved quickly and easily on the camera. This unique AF system enables autofocus on approximately 80% of the image plane, vertically and horizontally, and helps ensure virtually no loss in image quality.
Stunning Full HD video with custom Movie Servo AF (speed and sensitivity) for continuous focus tracking of moving subjects,
multiple frame rates including Full HD recording at 60p in MOV and MP4 formats and uncompressed HDMI out
While offering performance improvements across the board for still photography, the EOS 7D Mark II is also an incredibly capable HD movie camera. Taking advantage of its Dual Pixel CMOS AF capabilities, the EOS 7D Mark II has customizable Movie Servo AF options: not only can AF location be defined, AF speed and tracking intervals can be specified too, for fluid, smooth focus transitions. The EOS 7D Mark II delivers refined and detailed image quality with Full HD 60P recording at ISO values up to 16000, has an HDMI output and records to both SD and CF cards for versatility and security during important shoots.
7d22
Intelligent Viewfinder II provides approximately 100% field of view for shooting ease
The EOS 7D Mark II’s Intelligent Viewfinder II makes it easy to both shoot, change and confirm camera settings and shooting modes all without looking away from the viewfinder. Displaying approximately 100% of the composition, the viewfinder can show settings like shooting mode, exposure level, white balance, drive mode, AF operation, metering mode, recording format, even an electronic level and more. All of this information can be displayed by or superimposed easily over the image for review while shooting, and multiple views are customizable through the EOS 7D Mark II’s simple user interface.
Improved custom controls and built-in intervalometer and bulb timer for expanded creativity
An EOS first, the EOS 7D Mark II offers time-lapse fixed-point shooting and long exposures without the need for a remote control. The EOS 7D Mark II’s interval timer takes from 1 to 99 shots at preselected intervals, ideal for shooting flowers as they bloom or clouds drifting through the sky. Its built-in bulb timer keeps the shutter open for a designated amount of time, perfect for night photography, or to capture the flow of traffic on a street corner.
Magnesium alloy body with shutter durability up to 200,000 cycles and enhanced dust and weather resistance
The EOS 7D Mark II is constructed of the highest quality materials, and to exacting standards that ensure unfettered performance at all times. For example, the shutter can shoot at speeds up to 1/8000 sec. for up to 200,000 cycles, the chassis is built of lightweight and rigid magnesium, and the camera’s seals are built to resist water and dust. This combination makes the EOS 7D Mark II ready for almost anything.
EOS Scene Detection System features a new 150,000-pixel RGB+IR Metering Sensor for improved precision
The EOS 7D Mark II has an amazing iSA Intelligent Subject Analysis system that employs an independent RGB light sensor with approximately 150,000-pixel resolution. This sensor enables Canon’s intelligent Tracking and Recognition system (iTR AF) that detects and tracks subjects, automatically switching the AF point to optimize tracking. With new tracking algorithms tailored to recognize faces and colors, this system serves as a brilliant foundation to the EOS 7D Mark II’s AF system.

Anti-flicker shooting
The EOS 7D Mark II features a new flicker detection system that not only alerts the user in the viewfinder, but with the camera’s Anti-Flicker Shooting function can compensate for flickering light sources, taking shots only at peak light volume. This feature is useful for minimizing disparities in color and exposure, especially during continuous shooting in sub-optimal lighting situations.

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 equivalence.
The processors help the Mark II capture up 31 RAW, 19 RAW + JPEG, and over 1000 JPEG images in a single burst and it works to make real-time corrections of lens aberrations and distortion. Shutter lag is reduced to 55 milliseconds and refined mechanics improve shutter efficiency and dampen vibrations, which improves autofocus accuracy and overall image sharpness.
The focusing system takes a major leap to include 65 all cross-type AF points, up from 19 on the 7D, therefore enabling improved focusing precision, especially when tracking moving subjects. The AF points are spread over a wide area of the frame enabling faster AF wherever the subject lies, and -3 EV sensitivity at the center dual-cross type point allows for accurate AF in low light. When working in live view, the Dual Pixel CMOS AF sensor with phase-difference detection provides smooth camcorder-like autofocus, which is fast and precise for stills and video. The metering sensor has also been upgraded and now offers 150,000-pixel RGB+IR sensor. This sensor enables Canon’s intelligent Tracking and Recognition system (iTR AF) that detects and tracks subjects, automatically switching the AF point to optimize subject tracking. New tracking algorithms for face and color recognition also serve as a foundation point for the 7D Mark II’s AF system.
Full HD video capture is a calling card of the 7D series and the upgrade in the Mark II includes 1080p capture at 60 fps in addition to 30 and 24 fps at full HD. Lower HD and SD-resolution video is also available and both MOV and MP4 formats are supported as is uncompressed video to an external recorder via the mini-HDMI terminal. The Dual Pixel CMOS AF system is particularly beneficial in video recording and noticeable in live view when switching between subjects and, in combination with Canon’s Custom Movie Servo predictive AF, when tracking moving subjects. ISO sensitivity in video mode parallels stills mode to 16000 and video, as well as stills, can be recorded to both SD and Compact Flash cards in the dual card slot.
The rear monitor on the Mark II is a 3.0” Clear View II LCD with 1,040k-dot resolution, which provides easy-to-see image composition and playback. Its resin-coated cover minimizes reflections, and the extremely helpful comparative playback function lets you compare two images (or sections of images) on the same screen. The 100%-coverage Intelligent Viewfinder II improves upon the original optical pentaprism viewfinder with faster overlay of a number of displays which offer camera settings information and options such as grid display, AF point display and an electronic level.
Advanced custom controls allow you more ways to set the camera buttons for just what you need, and a first for an EOS is time-lapse fixed-point shooting and long exposures without the need for a remote control. The EOS 7D Mark II’s interval timer takes from 1 to 99 shots at preselected intervals, ideal for shooting flowers as they bloom or the transition of daytime passing into nighttime. Also, a built-in GPS receiver provides digital compass, location and altitude information and coordinated time. For enhanced connectivity, a USB 3.0 terminal offers fast transfer to PCs and printers, as well as to Canon’s new WFT-E7 (Version 2) for wireless transfer and Wi-Fi compatibility.
Physically, the Mark II maintains the durable magnesium alloy build of its predecessor and adds improved water and dust seals. The shutter system, with a maximum shutter speed of 1/8000 of a second, has been tested to complete 200,000 actuations. It provides a built-in flash plus hot shoe for external flash and PC terminal.
The 7D Mark II is compatible with EF and EF-S lenses and in addition to the 7D Mark II camera body, Canon is releasing a kit with the Mark II and a zoom lens. The EOS 7D Mark II DSLR Camera with 18-135mm Lens combines the DSLR with a highly versatile EF-S 18-135mm f/3.5-5.6 IS STM lens. This lens built for APS-C sensors, provides the full frame focal length equivalency of a 28.8-216mm lens for comprehensive wide-angle to telephoto coverage. Aspherical and UD lens elements minimize aberrations for sharp, color-accurate imaging throughout the frame. Optical Image Stabilization offers four stops of compensation against the blur caused by camera shake, and Dynamic Image Stabilization is optimized for video and reduces the shake created when moving with your camera. High speed autofocus is complemented by an STM AF system which provides smooth and almost silent focusing action during use.
The LP-E6N Battery for 7D Mark II comes supplied with the camera but is also available as a stand-alone accessory. Having a second battery is a must for full day shoots and it’s generally a good idea to have a second battery charged and ready. The optional BG-E16 Battery Grip for EOS 7D Mark II DSLR provides space for an additional LP-E6N battery and offers a stable and comfortable way to hold your camera in the vertical position. It includes a secondary shutter release button and other alternate controls. With the included BGM-E16 battery magazine, six AA batteries can also be used to power the Mark II.
Updating the existing WFT-E7A model is the WFT-E7A Wireless File Transmitter Version 2 which offers compatibility with the 7D Mark II, and enables fast wireless and wired transfer of images to your computer or smart device as well as remote control and linked shooting capabilities. Fast and secure links over a LAN connection and a wired Ethernet connection improve workflow while a built-in Bluetooth function allows it to handle high-volume data transfer. The E7A attaches to the base of your camera via the tripod mount, connects to the camera via USB, and requires its own battery.  Several new interface cables are also available to connect distinct cameras to a computer or even to the wireless file transmitter, including the IFC-150U II USB 3.0 Interface Cable  which is included with the camera, the IFC-500U II USB Interface Cable which is compatible with the standard mini USB B-type socket, and the IFC-150AB II USB Interface Cable and IFC-40AB II USB Interface Cable which are spare cables and come included with the WFT-E7A transmitter.
Finally, Canon has made available two new focusing screens for the 7D Mark II. The Eh-A Focusing Screen is a replacement for the standard screen that is included with the camera and the Eh-S Focusing Screen is the Super Precision Matte alternative which provides brighter focusing options with fast aperture lenses.
