Protect those MPAs: Cameras such as GoPro's Hero4 Black can be installed on a variety or platforms such as drones, in order to facilitate monitoring and surveillance of MPAs. Use them to capture video footage while flying overhead or install them on an underwater platform to monitor what's going on down below.

What you see is what you get: Updates feature an even more powerful processor that is capable of high quality, slow motion footage, faster video frame rates and better image quality. SuperView, a video mode that captures wide-angle perspectives and QuickCapture, a feature allows the user to power on and start recording automatically by pressing a single button, are just a few features that make this camera unique. In typical GoPro Hero series fashion, the Hero4 Black has the new Protune update, which allows for crisp, quality videos and photos. This feature allows the user to manually control the color, ISO limit, exposure and more.
