GoPro unveils two new high-end cameras: Hero4 Black and Hero4 Silver GoPro has unveiled their fourth-generation high-end cameras: the Hero4 Black and Hero4 Silver.
The sports, action cameras will feature notable upgrades from their predecessors, including either a touchscreen or 4K video capture at 30fps.

At the top of the line is the Hero4 Black which offers 4k video capture at 30fps, double the frame rate of last year's model, and can also record 1080p at 120fps. The powerful camera should no longer have any "rolling-shutter effect," adds the company.

The Hero4 Silver sells at a discount to the Black, but cannot record 4K. The camera can record 2.7K video at 30fps, 1080p video at 60fps, and 720p at the full 120fps. The camera does have touchscreen controls, however, which is new to the line.

Both devices are waterpoof to 131 feet, include Wi-Fi and Bluetooth for easier transfers, and can take stills at 12MP if you need to do so.

"For the past twelve years, our passion has been to make it easy for people to self-capture jaw dropping, professional quality footage of themselves engaged in their favorite activities," said GoPro Founder and CEO, Nicholas Woodman. "That passion led us to embark on our most ambitious design and engineering effort ever, and the result is nothing short of the ultimate GoPro--the HERO4 Black. We can't wait to see what the world captures with it."

The Hero4 Black retails for $499 and the Hero4 Silver retails for $399.
