The GoPro Hero3+ might be the king of action cams by some people’s estimation, but that doesn’t mean there isn’t room for improvement. To that end, some Hero4 specs as well as a release date (range) have appeared on a small website called DGISE, and the specs at least seem to track with previous rumors.
Okay, first things first, many of the specs revealed here are not new. A round of specs leaked back in September from Ambarella — the company that makes the SoC’s (system-on-a-chip) that have powered the GoPro line for the last several generations — and this report tracks with the specs in that product brief.
The Hero4 will apparently shoot 4K at 30fps, 1080p at 120fps and 720p at 240fps. Multi-exposure HDR and WDR tone mapping, and electronic image stabilization (EIS) were all also mentioned in the original leak and appeared again today.
New information that we haven’t seen before includes the ability to shoot 13MP photos (that’s one more than the Hero3+ black edition), talk of a “completely new lens for shooting in dark,” and the claim that the Hero4 will arrive in Summer of 2014.
