Jared Abrams is a cinematographer based in Hollywood, California. After many years as a professional camera assistant he switched over to still photography. About two years ago a new Canon camera changed the way the world sees both motion and still photography. He just happened to be in the right place at the right time.

    You do realize it will be launched tomorrow and the Black will in fact not have upgraded fps? So no 4K?

    No 4k at 30fps or A9 inside. That’s next years otherwise they would be calling it gopro hero4.
