Life is an Adventure
My life is an adventure. I’ve lived a significant portion of my life in the finer side with a lot of travels and races over the years. I’ve ticked off a lot of destination and things to do on my bucket list. Funny, how I look back and would want to revisit each of the places I’ve been through with the latest technology. There was an era when we had to conserve rolls of film and wait for it to be developed to see how it turned out. Then came the less powered digital cameras followed by the high powered and bulky DSLR cameras. Then there’s GoPro whose sleek and powerful features make it a cut above the rest. GoPro has redefined the business with not only powerful cameras but it also comes with accessories and mounts designed to help capture the moment as it happens. GoPro Hero 4 is the highest performance line inthe GoPro Ecosystem. HERO4 is available in two editions, HERO4 Black at MSRP Php 25,990 and HERO4 Silver at MSRP Php 20,990. GoPro’s Emmy® Award- winning imaging technology combines with enhanced ease-of-use and powerful new features such as 4K30, 2.7K50 and 1080p120 video capture (Black) and built-in touch display convenience (Silver), to make it easier than ever for consumers to self capture and share stunning, professional quality content of their favorite experiences.
The launch of the GoPro Hero 4 was held in Republ1c Wake Park in Nuvali last November 11, 2014 and I was lucky enough to be a part of it. Some participants also had a chance to wakeboard as part of testing the newest GoPro. The bigger part of launch was the presentation of the features of the Hero 4 and it was really impressive. GoPro has also created variations in the Hero series to fit various users. The GoPro Hero 4 Black Edition would be suited for really power users like those who would needs the Emmy-Award Winning Performance Quality. The GoPro Hero 4 Silver Edition would be suited for about almost everybody and the GoPro Hero is the entry level GoPro that has all the basic functions. Aside from understanding the awesome new features of the GoPro Hero 4, I’ve also learned a lot in using my current GoPro Hero 3+, which I won by topping a blogging contest. I’ve been able to use the GoPro in documenting my previous races through a head mount and it was just amazing how beautiful the route of Angkor Wat and Corregidor was as captured by the GoPro. The Hero 4 can even do better and the following are the shared features of the GoPro Hero 4 Black and Silver Editions that takes it a step further over the previous versions of the GoPro.
