GoPro Hero4 gets a firmware upgrade – now you can shoot slow-mo at 240fps


GoPro has announced a software upgrade for its Hero4 camera, bringing even better slow motion recording capabilities to the device, and more.


According to Engadget the upgrade enables recording at 240fps at 720p – a bit like the iPhone 6 can do. Shooting at 2.7K has also been boosted to 60fps (up from 50fps), which will please the trendy extreme sports types who make up GoPro’s core demographic.

Another useful addition is the ability to add “highlight points” whilst watching a video in playback – not just as it records in real time. Highlight points are useful as it means when you import the video to your computer, you’ll have a log of exactly where the most interesting bits are already.

We’ll let you know when the update rolls out.
