Cinema-quality capture. HERO4 Black brings it all.

Fast, powerful photo capture.

HERO4 Black captures gorgeous 12MP photos for all your production needs—from creating album art to documenting life on tour. Choose from a variety of modes to nail the perfect shot. Burst mode shoots up to 30 photos in one second—perfect for drum solos and other fast-action sequences. Time Lapse automatically captures photos at set time intervals from 0.5 to 60 seconds. It’s great for instrument-mounted shots when the shutter button is out of reach or capturing a series of photos so you can pick your favorites.

Small, lightweight design.

Weighing just 3.1 ounces, the tiny HERO4 Black camera ensures it’s your performance, not its presence, that holds your audience’s attention. The small size makes it ideal for mounting to instruments and low-profile capture onstage.

Ultra wide-angle lens.

Fit the whole band in the frame thanks to HERO4 Black’s ultra wide-angle glass lens. It’s great for capturing large groups in small spaces—like a cramped rehearsal room or crowded club—and delivers an expansive field of view for dynamic, engaging footage.
