  1. I am just about giving up on the Camera: Can I not have it connected to the laptop and use Bluetooth at the same time? As we are all aware the battery life time is VERY SHORT.

  2. Unable to download videos using Quik on a Mac.It also does not have standard USB port. My go pro hero plus works great and prompts Quck. Go pro 4 shows importing but doesn't do anything on same computer. Still trying to figure out problem. Not sure why there are two ports on Go pro 4 may have to use SD card reader adapter. If you font have iPhone 6, app is not going to work on phone, lots of things to consider, not easy.

  3. It is nov 2018 and I’m just now getting a GoPro 4 silver that I traded someone for and there are GoPro 7 and I think GoPro 8 but I just now gettin the 4, hopefully I can figure out how to get it to work

  4. I am using a JHub Elite to charge my Hero4 Silver. The red GoPro light goes out after 30 seconds and the blue blinking JHub lights also go out. But when I press the ON button on the JHub both device lights light up and stay on again for 30 to 60 seconds. So I don't know what this means.

  5. Can anybody answer my questions:
    1) Does this have a input for an external mic?
    2)I believe this is WiFi to connect to your phone?
    3) Is this a 2K or 4K?

  6. But she forgot to say the sound quality sucks absolute donkey balls…

  7. Does anyone know if the picture quality/bitrate is the same on both Cameras when they are both on the same settings? Eg. If they are both on 1080p/50fps will the quality be exactly the same or is the Sensor better in the Black? I can't work out why the Battery time is less on the Black at the same setting (considering the Silver has the LCD)

  8. After a few times of putting it on a place then to another, will it's wear out? I mean like won't stick to a surface?

  9. My videos on my hero four doesn't have very good colour and is very dim how do I fix that
