Best part is that these cameras are compact, deliver outstanding image quality, and are aimed with a consumer budget. As GoPro technology continually improves, you may be asking yourself which of the two models of GoPro Hero4 camera's you should get.

The most important factors to consider depends on how many megapixels you prefer. How many frames per second you want to record in and what activity you will be performing.  

GoPro Hero4 Camera Activities:

• Extreme sports and other adventure activities: The user can record exactly what he or she is up to without going through the trouble of lugging a camera around. These cameras are often used by skiers, snowboarders and mountain bikers.

• Sports training: Athletes training for cycling, surfing or winter sports can record valuable data about their performance in order to iron out mistakes and improve performance

• Wildlife filming: Trekkers and wildlife enthusiasts can easily make recordings of the beautiful surroundings they are moving through.

• Victims of traffic accidents: Many bicyclists wear these helmet cameras in order to have recordings handy in case they are harassed by drivers of large vehicles. These recordings can then be used for insurance or law enforcement purposes.

The recordings have immense entertainment value because they are generally uploaded to social media in order to entertain friends and family members. Many bloggers also use these videos in order to provide exciting content to their readers. The vantage view point from which the recordings are made ensure that they are far more interesting than regular recordings. The lightness of the camera makes it the preferred choice when the user simply cannot carry a larger camera.
