GoPro Hero 4 Specs Leaked!

Looks like the GoPro 4 may take sports cams to the next level once again!


GoPro Hero 4 Specs Leaked!

The company that makes the image processor for GoPro cameras, just revealed the specifications for their next SoC (System on a Chip). Ambarella has been making the chips for the GoPro line for quite some time.

Looks like the GoPro HD Hero 4 may be coming out soon, possibly for Christmas 2013? All we can do is keep our fingers crossed and wait!

The Leaked Specs:

4K Ultra HD H.264 Encoder

  • Film in 4k resolution at 30fps
  • High Profile with B-frames for high efficiency

Super High Frame Rate Modes

  • Film in 1080p at 120fps
  • Film in 720p at 240fps

Advanced Imaging

  • 700Mpixels/s oversampling performance
  • Multi-exposure HDR and WDR tone mapping
  • Electronic image stabilization (EIS)
  • Improved MCTF with advanced sharpening

Wi-Fi™ Connectivity

  • Remote viewfinder, playback
  • Upload pictures and video to social media

The GoPro HD Hero 4 may have two lenses side-by-side potentially offering integrated 3D filming capabilities, but again this is just speculation and has yet to be confirmed.

With 4K resolution, 1080p with EIS is going to be especially nice!

Wow, most of these specs fall into Pro cameras over $4000. I really hope they have improved the lens or offer better lens as option or upgrade.

iphone 5, then 5s....

in other words, spec major physical changes to the exterior.

Should be nice!!

Well... the Ambarella A9 was announced 9 MONTHS ago

And yes, it is much likely to power the GoPro Hero 4 whenever it's released, as the A7 powered the GoPro Hero 3, the A5 powered the GoPro Hero 2 and so on...

So, no news here.

And, by the way the A7 was announced in Sept 2010

And GoPro released the Hero 3 Black powered by the A7 in October 2012... let's hope this time they hurry a bit more...

It probably won't fit in the Zenmuse H3-2D. I wonder if I should stock up on H3's.

In the last few days, I/we saw a big price drop of the Hero 3 Black in many stores. Today I went to a store to get one. They were selling them for $299, yes black edition. Unfortunately a guy in front of me got the last one. I asked when they will get more in stock and they said "black edition is discontinued, we will not be getting any more of them."

That comment and the fact that so many stores dropped their price on it, makes me think that everyone wants to clear their stock. Which tells me that Hero 4 is coming out real soon.

I'm holding out for it.
