Do you use GoPro Hero 3+ and what is the quality of image? Probably much noise, no focus or....

I have a 3+ but don't shoot many stills with it. I hate the curvature but it's pretty good on a medium view for video. They are toys though. Fun toys, but toys never the less. The list of items that will drive you nuts is quite extensive. Low battery life, crappy little battery door, flakey WiFi, rolling shutter and jello effect that makes you sea sick, need to use ND to lower shutter speeds, I've only had mine a couple of months and had to send it back for repair,  yet I can get video that I could never get before. I'm looking for a good mirrorless system but can't find one with decent video specs and decent WiFi control. It's funny what manufacturers think consumers want. It's no wonders they aren't selling many and it also no wonders that GoPro is doing so well. Those old guys in Japan are seriously out of touch with the rest of humanity.

What about the GH4? I've read nothing but great things about it.

4K video, 60f/s @ 1080p, etc., etc.

The GH4 does look like a killer camera but it's just a way different form factor than a GoPro. I looked at the Lumix GM1 recently and really like the WiFi control. Touch to focus on the iPhone, stuff like that but only 1080i60. Not quite there.
