The Blink is compatible with all GoPro Hero 4 and Hero 3+ Black cameras and includes a USB connector which enables external camera power (camera battery can be removed thus reducing overheating).
When shooting video the power consumption varies greatly depending on resolution, frame rate, ProTune setting, action in the video, camera temperature, lighting, etc. However Blink powers your GoPro camera down between intervals, significantly increasing battery life and enabling long term time lapse sequences.
Blink also includes two 5mm inputs for remote trigger and connecting an optional X-Band motion detector.
