Yup, GoPro 4 is amazing for the cost - 4k 30p, 2.7k 50/48p, 1080 120p, a super wide lens and an UW housing!


James Cameron on why high frame rates are the future: "A 2K image at 48 frames per second looks as sharp as a 4K image at 24 frames per second ... with one fundamental difference: the 4K/24 image will judder miserably during a panning shot, and the 2K/48 won't."


Seeing is believing! 48p is also better for slow motion than 30/24p when capturing something unexpected!

would be nice if the new Go Pro 4 has some manual control.


In Protune Hero 4 offers 5 white balance settings: Auto, 3000k, 5500k, 6500k, & Native.


The slowest shutter speeds for video is 1/frame rate - 1/30sec for 30p, 1/60sec for 60p and so on - and this can be used to limit the amount of motion blur in video frames when one chooses to.


I think Hero 4's 2.7k 48p is very exciting because 1/48sec shutter is plenty good for most situations, 48p is silky smooth, and tests show it's not easy to tell 4k and 2.7k apart during playback at native speeds in theaters.

Thanks for the answers! Good to know that you shot it in 2.7k.

Short video of the little critters from Sulawesi in Indonesia. Captured in the Lembeh Strait and in Bunaken National Park. Some marine life in the video: nudibranches, frogfish, mimic octopus, shrimp, leaffish and many more creatures from almost another planet. Music is from Ludovico Einaudi. I hope you enjoy the video.

Equipment: 2 x GoPro Hero 3 Black, BlurFix 3 SO, URPRO Red Filter, 2 x 55mm Marumi Macrolens, 2 x Light & Motion Sola 1200, SRP Tray.




Excellent! When you were recording with the video lights did you also use the URPRO Red Filter? When shooting with the Marumi Macrolens, did you set the GoPro to Medium or Narrow FOV.
