GoPro About to Introduce Slo-Mo (Awesome!)

GizModo says it just got its hands on a GoPro with a firmware update on it that enables extreme slow motion video from GoPros. Wait until you see what they captured with the software update. The video below was captured at 240 frames per second then slowed to 24 frames per second for playback, so it is a 10x slow-mo.

GizModo reports:

The baddest action camera on the block is about to get even better. We just got an exclusive look at the first GoPro camera to capture silky smooth 240fps slow motion in glorious high definition. We’ve got the very first footage from a GoPro Hero4 equipped with a hot new firmware update that will bring that and much more. And I scored that footage at the Winter X Games this weekend while strapped to a snowboard.

Basically, if you have one of these cameras, you’re going to be psyched.

Until now, the Hero4 Black couldn’t do super smooth slow-mo and HD at the same time. When it launched, it was limited to 1080p video at 120 frames per second, 720p video at 120fps (as it was with the Hero3), or 480p at 240fps. This firmware update remedies that. The video above was all shot at 240 frames per second, and then slowed down to 24fps for the cinematic feel I like.:
