GoPro Updates HERO4 Firmware: Adds 240fps at 720p and 60fps at 2.7k

Caleb Ward

GoPro is at it again, adding more functionality to their already awesome HERO4 line of cameras.

HERO4 Black Firmware Update 2.0

The GoPro feature updates come via a new firmware update. The most notable new feature added to the GoPro HERO 4 Black is the ability to shoot 240fps video at 720p. Unfortunately this added feature won’t utilize the entire field of view, so it’s almost like shooting on a cropped sensor.

New Features on the HERO4 Black Firmware Update 2.0:

  • Time Lapse Video mode
  • 720p 240fps video mode (Narrow FOV only)
  • 2.7K 60fps video mode
  • Auto Image Rotation
  • Shots 30 photos for 6 seconds Burst Mode
  • Default ISO is now 1600
  • Added Reset option for camera Wi-Fi settings
  • Now Displays Night Lapse shutter time on the camera status screen
  • LCD Touch BacPac Improvements
  • Delivers the ability to add HiLight Tags during playback
  • Adds new gesture to display the last photo or video captured
  • Automatically locks the display after the camera goes to sleep
  • General Improvements + Bug Fixes: Night Lapse stability improvements

HERO4 Silver Firmware Update 2.0

The HERO4 Silver improvements are very similar to the HERO4 Black updates. However, you won’t have the ability to shoot at 240fps with the Silver model. It should also be noted that there is now a time-lapse video mode included in the HERO4 line. This might prove to be an awesome feature for outdoor travel videos and photography.

New Features on the HERO4 Silver Firmware Update 2.0:

  • Time Lapse Video mode
  • Auto Image Rotation
  • Adds 30 photos for 6 seconds burst mode
  • Default Video ISO is now 1600
  • Add HiLight Tags during playback
  • New gesture to display the last photo or video captured
  • Automatically locks the display after the camera goes to sleep
  • New Reset option for camera Wi-Fi settings
  • Displays night lapse shutter time on the camera status screen
  • Night Lapse stability improvements

It is also rumored that a new GoPro Drone will be announced at NAB 2015!
