I'm finally going to switch to a GoPro going for a Hero 4 Black, I know I'm well behind the times lol.
Having looked at the official web site and a few others, I can't find anything saying whether you need a SD card or if it's supplied so the question is, do you get one or do I need to buy one?
It's very possible I just can't see the wood for the trees!
You need to buy a micro SD card yourself. Make sure it is Class 10 and ideally something faster. I have had problems with some cheap class 10 cards. Only use the Sandisk extreme ones now. List of supported cards is here http://gopro.com/support/articles/so...update-release
You need to buy a card - just dont bother with bargain ones! I have not had any issues with any from proper manufacturers that claim they are compatible with full HD Video but there was a period (about 3 years ago) when GoPros were very fussy about what cards you used. Safest to stick with the approved list

Both still munch through batteries though
I went for the Silver, as I wanted the LCD screen without buying a new back and a case. It would be useless without it.
I bought 2 of these, work well: http://www.amazon.co.uk/dp/B00IJYG78...986871_TE_item
I found a GoPro 4 Silver on a dive this week, who would've guessed a 40m rated housing would be intact at 105m after nearly 10 months!
Any good video?
