Shelly Palmer Radio Report – October 9, 2014

GoPro recently unveiled a new line of action cameras that are better than ever. GoPro’s new top of the line camera, the $500 Hero4 Black, can shoot 4K video at 30 frames per second and 1080p video at 120 frames per second. Its built-in processor is twice as fast as its predecessor, and it features a new interface for easier menu browsing. The GoPro Hero4 Silver costs $100 less than the Black, but still includes many of its high-end features. It’s able to shoot 4K video, though only at 15 frames per second. But the Silver’s signature feature is its touchscreen display, which means you’ll be able to see exactly what you’ve shot without having to connect to a smartphone. The most exciting new GoPro camera may be its cheapest yet; the $130 GoPro Hero is still able to shoot 1080p video without breaking the bank. All three cameras, as always, are waterproof, and all three are available today to become the perfect complement to your active lifestyle.
