GoPro Hero (Basic Model)

This consumer grade GoPro comes with the famous waterproof housing and ultra-wide field of view. To keep the price low, some features are pretty basic – like the reduced photo resolution (5MP) and maximum of 1080P video. This is a great option for families – and travelers who don’t need all the high-end high-res features.

What you should know: External mics and the GoPro app will not work with this camera. This camera doesn’t come out of the waterproof case (although it does have a changeable back door). And the battery can’t be removed.

GoPro Hero4 Black

The Hero4 Black is GoPro’s best camera. For the best quality images, this is your camera. Shoot at an impressive 4K resolution at 30 frames per second. Or choose at 1080P high definition and capture at up to 120 frames per second. This is great for slowing down the action without compromising quality.

GoPro Hero4 Silver

The main difference with the Silver is it’s built-in LCD touch display. Some of the video settings are reduced compared to the Black (see above) but still offers a respectable set of video and photo capture specs.

GoPro Hero4 Session

The Hero4 Session is the smallest and lightest GoPro yet. The small size sacrifices some features and image quality. If small size matters, this might be the right camera for you. Otherwise, you should consider the Hero4 Silver – its features and quality are noticeably better and costs are almost identical.

Low Light Performance: Consumer grade
Video Features: 1440P (30, 25 FPS), 1080P (60-25 FPS), 960P, 720P (100-25 FPS), WVGA (120 FPS)
Photo Features: 8MP, Photo burst rates 10/1, 10/2, 5/1, 3/1 (Frames/Sec)
Advanced Features: Wi-Fi + Bluetooth, PROTUNE (Video only), Superview

This camera seems to be primarily for hard-core athletes that are more concerned about small size than image quality. For the average user, the small size doesn’t justify the higher price and reduced features.
