Hero 4 Black & Silver VS Hero3+ Black

HERO4 Black & Silver is designed to be handy action cameras that offer many improvements to their predecessor, HERO3+ Black. As action cameras, they are versatile enough for use in many scenarios in which using either a DSLR or a phone camera is not considered practical. If you want to shoot photographs and videos while surfing, snowboarding, or using drones, HERO4 can always be a reliable image and video shooting device. The form factor of this camera makes it a reliable all-around camera that is useful in any settings imaginable.

Both HERO4 models retain the shooting capabilities of HERO3+ Black while adding new features that greatly improve their versatility. Just like HERO3+ Black, HERO4 Black & Silver have 4K, 2.7K, 1080p, and 720p shooting capability; although the cameras’ 4K feature is almost useless because with such image quality, the video recording framerate will drop severely to a level of 15 frames per second. Despite being mostly similar to HERO3+ Black, both models feature more advanced components and enhanced recording options. There are also some specific enhancements that are only found in either Black or Silver model which will be discussed below.

We have mentioned above that both HERO4 Black & Silver models feature shooting capabilities that are inherited from HERO3+ Black, but there are some enhancements that make each model unique. In terms of resolution, bitrate and framerate, HERO4 Black is more superior than HERO4 Silver. Users expecting higher-quality images or videos should thus pick the Black model to enjoy the best shooting experience. HERO4 Silver, however, features a built-in touchscreen not found in the Black model. The touchscreen, which is first to be found in an action camera, makes the camera more convenient to use and allows users to view the shooting results immediately. If you think that a touchscreen with all of its functionalities is an essential addition, the Silver model is definitely your best pick.
