Key points for choosing GoPro
Image quality (resolution)” to leave beautiful photos and videos
If you want to record beautiful and detailed images, GoPro that supports 4K and 5K is recommended. The resolution that affects the image quality is about 1920 x 1080 in full HD, but it is about 3840 x 2160 in 4K and 5120 x 2880 in 5K.
Also, check the “frame rate (FPS)”, which indicates the number of images that can be processed per second. If the video was shot at a high frame rate, you can enjoy high-quality video even when playing it in slow motion. If you are looking for smooth video, we recommend products that support a frame rate of 60.
