GoPro Hero 4 Silver by DragonRiderNetwork Youtube review
Description: Although the 4K video recording is only able to film @15FPS instead of @30FPS, the GoPro Hero 4 Silver is still considerably good. It has multiple rates that you can choose and it has three lens modes that you can adjust depending on your preferences or conditions. You can also playback the recorded video directly in the action cam, which is very useful for amateurs. It’s good to note that the GoPro Hero 4 Silver has a good light quality both in daylight and at night when the light is low. Even without 4K, it’s still a good action cam

Effective Pixels How much effective pixels the action camera has, it's measured in MPX (megapixel). These pixels are used for capturing the incoming light. These pixels are the ones that take the image/video. New cameras have the ability to decreas the pixel number, which you would use if you want to make a picture smaller. This process doesn't use less pixels, it just resizes the image.
12 Mpx (megapixels)
Video Resolution This is the pixel number that a display or a camera sensor has (refers to the digital image of the action camera). If the action camera has a higher resolution, that means that it is capable of taking shots that have more pixels. If you have more pixels then they can provide the display with the ability of more visual information. So, simply put, the higher the resolution, the better images/videos your action camera will be able to take. The best resolution an action camera can have is 4K, Ultra HD (3840 x 2160).
Video Frame Rate The frame rate or FPS at which the action camera takes it pictures/videos. Many high quality cameras record at 30 fps. Frame rate or FPS in many occasions is reffered to as frame frequency. This is measured in hertz. Most of the movies are made at 24 fps so, you won't be needing more than 30 fps on your action camera.
