When you are out on a journey, there's usually someone at home waiting for you to send an update from the road. If that's the case, why send a text, email or even a smartphone shot when you can immerse your vicarious audience in your favorite moment of the day? Thanks to the Trim + Share feature on the HERO4 Black and Silver cameras and the GoPro App, you can grab a climactic clip and save it directly to your camera roll and memory card, without downloading an entire video file. Allow your friends and family to experience the journey with you!

This smart  feature allows the user to create short video clips directly on the camera or mobile device for easy sharing. Simply press the Trim icon in Playback mode, choose a 5-, 15-, or 30-second clip, or even a single frame from any of your recorded content and save it for sharing, all without transferring the complete video file. 

On-camera trimming, available on HERO4 Black with LCD Touch BacPac, HERO4 Silver and HERO+ LCD, allows you to save your trimmed file directly back onto the memory card, next to the rest of the video files for later sharing. Also, the in-app functionality allows you to trim and instantly save your photos and videos from all WiFi enabled GoPro cameras. 

In order to focus on the run, the set wave or the trail in front of you, typically you would just press record and allow the GoPro to catch everything. However, if you catch some epic content during that session, you may want to set it aside or share it to the world as soon as you stop recording. Before, that required you to download your footage to your computer, find your best moment, then edit, export and upload it. With the new Trim + Share feature, you can select that climactic moment on your mobile device and upload it to Instagram while you are on the chairlift headed back to the top, on the beach between sets or on the shuttle in between destinations.
