    GoPro Hero 4 has been announced...

    http://gopro.com

    you can buy them starting 10/5

    specs are nice but the price tag is not. they did come out with a lower end model that may be a good fit for a lot of ppl.

    Battery life, battery life, battery life?

    Especially with the LCD back.

    I presume the GoPro Hero 4 battery life continues to be minimal as the product descriptions do not mention it.

    I wish there was a waterproof way to connect an external power source to the GoPro. The waterproof housings to date have no provision for external power (that I am aware of).

    I suppose I could hack together something like this.


    The GoPro Battery Backpack displaces the LCD backpack which I currently use.

    I just became aware of the Tehkron CagePro for GoPro Hero. Interesting product, does not look highly water tolerant though.

    I have three batteries for my GoPro but changing batteries while on the water involves a bunch of loose pieces that can easily go astray.

    yeah i have 3 batteries for mine as well and take extra time swapping them sitting on the ski but yeah. i tihnk i have seen where ppl have modded the waterproof case for better sound and sealed it with silicon but how to give it longer battery life without dropping the settings down to the lowest i have no idea.

    i get about an hr of record time per battery but i do run it at 1080p 60FPS. if i drop to 30FPS it will give me a bit longer.

    Mine seem pretty good. Got the hero2 with the extended battery and the hero3+ black with extended battery but I go between the both of them

    I am assuming that the 4+ silver is the old 3+ black or am I wrong

    Yes except that it has a built in screen. They look to be the same specs as mine.
