Bought this about 4 months ago from Manila, back when it was not properly available in India. Hence my use can state its merits as well as demerits.
Silver cam records 4k in 15fps which is not so advisable if you want a high res data, go for black.
Still shots not that crisp and very little help in adjusting(unlike dslr's) but hence its not made for that cant complain.
Not enough mounting options(In the box by default). Which they should look into it.
Awesome case covers from the box.
Video's recorded are crisp, clear and turned off Protune will give better results.
Time lapse's give great quality and easy to handle too with the help of wifi/bluetooth or
simply connecting to phone through app.
If you are an adrenaline junkie then a must buy.

AMAZON DOESNOT OFFER WARRANTY SERVICES FOR THIS PRODUCT COSTING 42K! - BUY AT YOUR RISK!
by PavanD on 2016-03-18
1. Product is fully capable as per specs, it feels just awesome to use it.
2. High speed mode 240fps at 720p is very good speed for some adventurous stuff.
3. Figured out I can extend the recording time by connecting it to a power bank, pretty awesome!
1. BEWARE! AMAZON DOESNOT OFFER GOPRO WARRANTY REPLACEMENTS.
2. My unit got bricked within 40days in hand.
3. Bought the unit from Cloudtail Services, Subsidiary of Amazon.
4. Amazon Customer Service doesn't reveal contact numbers for Cloudtail Services (contacted them 4 times, and neither warranty services not a replacement unit offered)
5. Couldtail services has only an Autoreply server doing its job, No one responds to your queries or contacts you for your problems.
I wish I could rate a 0 star for a very bad service over such a costly product. Shame on Amazon!!
First of all its costly but a very good camera without SCREEN

First of all its costly but a very good camera without SCREEN ! Yes it does not have screen but its sibling (SILVER) have.
Before going into pros and cons which many of have already did i will list it differently, below are the things which should be bought separately to support and will be needed.
What additional things needed:
1. SD card - and those are not cheap. Go to gopro.com and see the memory card list and buy only those other class 10 doesnt support the camera and ultimately loosing footage's. LEXAR 633x UHS-I is recommended and comes at ~Rs.2k
2. Additional batteries - Hero 4 battery sucks huge time. They wont last for more than a hour so invest in WASABI ONLY. And additional two battery charger.
3.Case - Yes a must buy to keep everything in one place and compact
4. Tripod to Gopro Adapter mount - ~Rs.300 This will allow gopro to be used on normal existing tripods or mounts with screw.
5. Gopro Pole/ Selfie sticks- Again this is needed to take decent videos and shots. ~Rs.800 decent ones
6. Gorilla Tripod- This is must have tripod for gopros very handy and does most of the jobs ~Rs.500
7. Mounts - This is an endless investment the more you invest the more freedom you get on hooking your camera and more different angles and places you can take on.
What to Buy:
One thing one have to take into account of 4k is your existing systems should support the 4k viewing. Laptops and TV in India are turning into 4k but at a very very slow pace and those are damn expensive. Even if you shoot 4k your system should be robust in handling those footages, i have come to know about it the hard way.
Get accustomed to no screen and blind shoots. Yes black version doesnt have a screen so every time you shoot either connect it to mobile app and view or download on laptop (which is not viable solution)
If you are not a avid fan go with Silver version you will save plenty of buck, 4k at 15fps is usable, you get screen on back and a good battery life than black. Even the sensors are pretty good on silver which works great on low light and reduces distortion.
I have black version, but i never shoot on 4k since i dont have 4k monitors nor my laptop is high end which can handle it. I feel the pinch of NO SCREEN everytime and i hate it the MOST.
Best Video recording experience i have ever seen.OUTSTANDING!
by Abraham JOSEPH on 2015-08-01
Bought it last week for my adventure tour and i would say its the best video camera i have ever used.Recorded my whole adventure using it and the results were amazing.The only downside i see is the low battery life,as my expectations were higher.
Its an all rounder action cam and If you want 4k video then this beast is perfect as an action cam,With decent recording time.
Its the Best video quality money will buy in an action cam: Specs alone dictate at the quality. There's just no other action cameras on the market today doing 4K at full frame rates
There are lots of mounting options available from third party manufacturers also.Suits every environment and have plenty of shooting options.
What i like about the hero 4 black:
-4K at usable framerates (hero3 could only do 15fps)
-Sweet 120fps slow motion at 1080
-More wireless connectivity(some hiccups, but can work)
-Sharpness is satisfactory
-Lowlight is decent enough
-More manual control
If you can't afford the Black edition then this one also is a good choice
Other option is Sony Fdr-x1000v
Nice product but Battery issue!!
by PraDu on 2016-07-17
I got this product within 2 business days. Thanks to Amazon shipping (5-stars). However, the product is very good but there is a little problem to my concern is its battery life is too short. its only around 17 minutes with 720p (semi-HD) video shoot. i don't know if i need to buy another gopro rechargeable battery!
been using it for over 2 weeks now and the videos and pictures are BEAUTIFUL https: //www
by delton on 2015-12-19

by yasser nadaf on 2015-11-15
Awesome product & no doubt about GoPro. Quality is super. Advice! Buy a pattern back for this product as the battery only lasts for 1.5 hours so for better battery life battery back is just right. Hero 4 black + battery back = awesome
by Amazon Customer on 2016-08-16
Device is heating more ....raised a request for replacement ....every time before the pickup time I always receive a message that your pickup is cancelled it is cancelled for the fifth time ...I have to gift this to my friend who is going abroad ...He is leaving tomorrow and still the pickup is not done. Now I don't want this product for me its no use service of yours is very pathetic I have enough evidence that my pickup scheduled and cancelled before the pickup time without calling me.

I got exactly what is displayed. I was a bit hesitant initially making such a big purchase like this online but couldn't have been more satisfied.
by Abhishek on 2015-09-06
It works properly, but sometime it stops working, a not sure how it happens probably it can't handle too much shaky movement.
by Anand Kapadia on 2015-11-19
Its an amazing piece of technology.
