We’ve shared dozens of incredible GoPro videos on BGR over the past year, but thanks to an upcoming firmware update, some of the videos we post in the future are going to be a lot more epic. Gizmodo had a chance to check out a GoPro Hero4 Black update at the Winter X Games over the weekend — an update which allows the Hero4 Black to film at 240 frames per second in 720p resolution.

GoPro videos never cease to amaze us and this latest one looks like it could have come straight from National Geographic.

GoPro shares fell dramatically on Tuesday, apparently following news that Apple has been granted a patent that largely describes a sports camera system that’s similar to the very popular GoPro cameras.

GoPro cameras have brought us a lot of incredible footage taken here on Earth this year but now these wondrous little cameras are boldly going into outer space as well.

If you own a GoPro Hero 4, you could probably strap it on to anything and make a video worth watching. Lion conservationist Kevin Richardson is known around the world for his friendship with lions and hyenas, so it was only natural for him to go on a lethal hunt with his lion pals Meg and Amy.
Women who get catcalls as they walk down the street aren’t just a tired cliché we see in movies and TV shows. The Daily Show recently proved this by using a GoPro to record one woman’s daily stroll through New York City. The GoPro — which was being held by a friend in front of her — records her journey as she’s accosted by several would-be suitors.
GoPro cameras have captured amazing videos from around the world that have shown us what it’s like to leap off a building or to travel inside a live volcano.
