The GoXtreme Black Hawk 4K is one of a new generation of feature-packed, high-end action cameras. It packs in a hearty range of features such as 4k at 30fps, 1080p at 120 fps, waterproof to 60m and along side video modes it also boasts time-lapse and a 2-inch rear LCD screen.

You’d be right if you were thinking that these specs look familiar, as they’re near identical to those of the GoPro Hero4 Black, and for good reason. The sensor and processor of the GoXtreme Black Hawk 4K and the GoPro Hero4 Black are rumoured to be almost identical and checking the visual quality between the two it really is difficult to see any discernable difference in quality.

The new Black Hawk 4K features a 12.4 million pixel Sony IMX117 images sensor and Ambarella A12 processor. The A12 processor is a later generation than the one that appears in the Hero4 and there for should show increased processing performance.


The quality of video capture is after all the most important factor, but as any seasoned action camera user will know there’s often quite a bit more to it when it comes to usability.
