GoPro’s Hero4 Silver serves up high-end action-cam footage on a silver platter. As one of the best action cameras around, it shoots professional 1080p and 720p video with 12MP photos at up to 30 frames per second. So whether you’re an adventurer who spends every morning on a surfboard, or you just like shooting cool Instagram videos, this bad boy will make your life look like a National Geographic documentary.

What most photography enthusiasts love about the Hero4 is the sleek built-in touch display. It makes for particularly easy control and helps frame up any shot, whether you’re standing at the edge of the Grand Canyon or kayaking off the Hawaiian coast. You can also use it to trim and save new video clips within the camera itself. Plus, the screen is ultra-responsive, making it easy to review and ensure you’ve got that perfect take before getting back to your adventure.

The Hero4 also has a ton of other built-in features like Bluetooth, Wi-Fi, and the option to add a smart remote—which would come in really handy when you’re solo hiking a 14’er in Colorado and want a pic to prove you made it to the top. There’s also a sweet night photo/night lapse option for a cinema-quality capture of your quiet evening under the stars. Now that’s a blockbuster.
