The release of the GoPro HERO4 models has video enthusiasts across the country excited about the capabilities of this new camera line. One capability that will continue with these camera models is the capture of 360° video via their integration with 360Heros Plug-n-Play Holders.

The new GoPro HERO4 Black and HERO4 Silver models are fully compatible with the current line of 360Heros 360 video gear, with improved quality at a 60 bit rate and higher frame rates to get better video sync!

As you can see in the video, the new GoPros have the same dimensions as the older models. This means that if you’re looking to upgrade your GoPro arsenal, you won’t have to worry about whether or not they’ll fit into your 360Heros video gear.

In terms of specs for the new GoPro cameras, improvements in image quality have photographers and videographers drooling over these new cameras. For instance, if you’re using the H3Pro10HD and the GoPro Hero4 Black, you can shoot 12k content at 30 frames per second or 8k content at 50 fps. Users of the H3Pro6 will enjoy the ability to shoot 6k content at 120 frames per second.

The following table offers further comparison of the various GoPro models and their capability with the 360Heros line of holders:
