And if you’re a bit of a thrill-seeker who loves adrenalin-fuelled fun, don’t forget to film your next adventure with a GoPro. With the HERO4’s sharper detail, resolution and 30 frames per second clarity, it seems a shame to waste the tiny camcorder’s capabilities on everyday activities (there’s only so much skating, cycling and running you can do…).

And before you hurry off to your next extreme sport, don’t forget to check out our tips on how to shoot an epic GoPro video. It covers the four essential settings to use (looping, time lapse, burst photos and superview) so that you don’t miss a minute of the action.

Or if you’re yet to invest and are unsure about which GoPro is right for you, why not check out the fantastic range of GoPro action cams, including the HERO4, now available at Currys?
