What is the Difference Between the GoPro Hero 4 and 3+ Cameras?

The difference between GoPro HERO 4 and 3+

Since GoPro released the Hero 4 cameras, I've gotten quite a few requests by my friends and readers to highlight the major upgrades and overall differences of the new and old models. You've seen our original which GoPro to buy article help many of us with all of the camera models, but in this post I'd like to focus on the newest of the new. The GoPro Hero 3+ cameras were only released in October of 2013, so a lot of people were bummed if they had recently purchased the 3+ and didn't even know about the 4! They've also released a new budget-friendly option simply called the HERO which we'll also highlight. In our opinion, the 3+ is still a very solid choice (if they remain available), but the Hero 4's have been greatly improved in numerous areas, particularly with the Black Edition's supporting 4k cinema and 30fps. In terms of the absolute best to buy? We've come to a conclusion that you may not have expected. Let's go by edition by edition first.
