GoPro Hints About New Firmware for the HERO4 Black and Silver coming in February

GoPro-HERO4-27k-48fps-phantom2-aerial-video-800.jpgGoPro announced during CES 2015 that they are planning to release a firmware update for their HERO4 Black and Silver cameras next month. The firmware is going to add some new features to both still and video modes, with the most notable being the ability to record 2.7K video at 60fps; currently limited to 48fps. This is very appealing to those who use the GoPro HERO 4 for aerial video, where the faster frame rate is often preferred for its smoothness during playback.

The update will also add an Auto rotate function (automatically adjusts orientation when the camera is right-side up or upside down), a 240fps 720p video option, and a new time lapse video mode.

More details can be found over on GoPro's website.
