Can The GoPro Hero4 Black Survive The Zombie Apocalypse? | DRTV Review

By Anthony Thurston on October 20th 2014

Sometimes when new product updates come out, it can be hard to discern if the newer version is different enough to warrant upgrading if you have the previous model. That is the dilemma that has plagued GoPro enthusiasts since the dawn of time.

The recently announced GoPro Hero 4 Black offers some clear upgrades over its older brother, the Hero 3+. Namely, improved low-light performance, better WiFi connectivity/usability, and true 4K recording at standard frame rates.

[REWIND: What’s New – GoPro Hero4 Black]

DigitalRev just put the new GoPro Hero 4 Black through its paces through a scene that looks like it came out of Left 4 Dead or some other intense Zombie game. They also manage to clearly demonstrate some of the advantages that the Hero 4 black has over the Hero 3+.

It is pretty clear that DRTV likes the new GoPro 4 Black, and will upgrade. I am curious what those of you on the fence think about it. Did this review/comparison convince you of the merits of the GoPro Hero 4 Black or are you still content with your Hero 3+ (or other previous version)? Leave a comment below!

    Looks cool, but I kept getting distracted by the fact they’re shooting Airsoft with NO SAFETY GOGGLES (They may have had nothing in the chamber, but it’s bad form anyway; those suckers can put out your eye!).

    Its nice to know that the GoPro Hero 4 Black will be able to capture the zombie apocalypse at 12MB and 30 fps in 4K, but at $500 for my purposes it is a luxury not a necessity. Since I don’t typically shoot video, my money would go to upgrading my DSLR equipment (bodies, lenses, accessories) before anything else.
