  • Commented on GoPro announces Hero4 lineup article

    Just watched TechMoan's latest review on the SJ4000 WiFi. ( http://www.techmoan.com/blog/2014/9/22/at-last-its-the-real-sj4000-wifi-review.html )

  • Commented on GoPro announces Hero4 lineup article

    Yup, until now, the SJ4000 had the best price/performance ratio WRT inexpensive wearables.

    However, the new GoPro 4 White edition seems to be pretty good at the (at last) vastly reduced price. It...

  • "I never use any of these controls myself; it simply takes better shots because of the lossless sensor output."

    It's not "lossless sensor output". RAW sensor data can NOT be accessed under iOS,...

  • " You usually get control over ISO on most Android phones including Samsung but that's about it."

    ISO setting has always been supported by the stock Android Camera app. (Customized / non-stock,...

    "opro hero at 130 USD instead of the Sj4000"

    Yup, before posting my first remark, I hadn't noticed the price tag of the new low-end model. That IS indeed very competitive. At last.

  • Commented on GoPro announces Hero4 lineup article

    The above only refers to the two more advanced models, not the indeed very comparatively priced ($129) basic model. Hope the latter doesn't have worse IQ / significantly narrower Field-of-View than...

    "The Hero "basic" will kill all chinese knock-offs..."

    Yup, for $129, it's indeed very well-priced. (Of course, the accessories still remain very expensive - for example, batteries cost 20 euros...

    So, $100 rise. After all the bad news on their financial problems, this all means they don't really want to save their own business / make them significantly more profitable by just making use of...

  • "forcing more people buy their lower end stuff."

    No one forces anyone to purchase smaller-sensor system cameras. If you don't like their IQ, you don't purchase them.
