The GoPro Hero4 Silver that I ordered during the Amazon Black Friday sale showed up yesterday, and I got the first driving test of it today!
The Hero4 Silver cost $399.99. However, during Cyber Monday, Amazon will toss in a 32GB MicroSD and $50 Amazon gift card for free! If purchased separately, these items will cost $467.98. That’s a savings that I couldn’t resist, so I picked one up.
The GoPro is a super wide-angle sports-action camera, which makes it idea for Driving with John Chow. For this first time, I suction-mounted the Hero4 to the Mercedes windshield with the Fat Gecko Mini camera mount. The audio was from the GoPro built-in mic. I’m waiting for a new housing that will allow me to add my Sennheiser EW112P mic to it. The built-in audio is actually quite impressive. With the top down, there was road noise, but almost no wind noise. Enjoy this first video, and look for more soon. And remember, the Amazon deal on this GoPro expires tonight. If you want one, you have a few hours left to get it.
