Looking at these 2 is the hero 4 silver worth the extra and will it give less jello than the hero 3+silver. Not going to the 4k one no point i dont have a 4k TV and wont be getting one any time soon.
If you can't afford hero 4 black then go with the hero 3 black+. Be careful as there are two hero 3 blacks that are on the used market. The one you want has the HERO3+ right on the front on the camera. I have both hero 3 + silver and black and the black has so much more to offer then the silver whether it's a 3 or 4.
Be aware the hero 4 black doesn't come with a built in touch screen like the hero 4 silver does.
But then hero 4 black has more fps options like 4k 30fps.....etc
There isn't much of a difference mechanically between hero 3 black+ and the hero 4 silver other than price point and built in monitor can't see in the sun. And the hero 4 black price point is a bit steep for for a camera with limited uses.
I guess it all comes down to how often you use it and what the application is. If you like 4K, pretty much you are force to get the hero 4 black, coz the 15fps on the hero 4 silver is just not good enough for fast action aerial video.
I use my GoPro outside of my phantom too, so for me, I would spend the 100bucks more to get the hero 4 instead of the hero 3+ for some added features.
After all, all depends on your personal preference and budget. There is no right or wrong.
No expert, but I was reading a thread here discussing the same argument, "if you don't have a 4k tv, what is the point?"There is no point in me going for anything with 4k on it as i dont have a 4k TV and they are still thousands of pounds here in the UK and it will be years and years before TV or sky broadcast in 4k, we still only broadcast in 720p with our best sky package here in the uk. lol
The point about 4K for me has nothing to do with whether I can watch it on a 4K TV. It is simply about capturing the best quality image I can.Ok so your thoughts are go for the 3 black over the silver, There is no point in me going for anything with 4k on it as i dont have a 4k TV and they are still thousands of pounds here in the UK and it will be years and years before TV or sky broadcast in 4k, we still only broadcast in 720p with our best sky package here in the uk. lol

The answer was the editing options . Apparently, you gain a lot more data to work with even though the final result may be 1080.
Maybe someone remembers this thread and will post a link.
4k TVs are available for under £600. While 4k is unlikely to be broadcast any day soon, you can already stream 4k films from Amazon.com and .co.uk
Based on specs, the Gopro 4 silver is very similar except for the touch-screen, so price would be the only decider there. The Gopro 4 black scores on having a short shutter speed, allowing you to shoot at a higher frames per second, which will look sharper. The faster you can capture the picture, the less jello as well, so within limits you are always better going for the highest fps at the expense of resolution. The Gopro 4 black will shoot 1080p at 100 or 120 fps, that's worth having.
