Every year or two, we hear of a new ?best GoPro ever?, and indeed, every time, the latest HERO model lives up to the label. Over the years, in addition to improved image quality, a new collection of sophisticated and creative features was added each time, such as Voice Control. The GoPro HERO7 Black follows suit, offering the best of the preceding models? features plus many new, super-creative ones. For example, the camera is designed to be used, in addition to the standard way, in portrait orientation. It can physically be turned into a portrait mode and shoot portrait photos that you can seamlessly upload to Instagram, Snapchat, and other social media sites. Please see the Features section below for a list of all the features.
The HERO7 Black captures up to Ultra HD 4K resolution video at up to 60 fps and applies built-in HyperSmooth Video Stabilization to let you get smooth, professional-looking video. HyperSmooth is a gimbal-like stabilization that feels out and predicts your movements and compensates for camera shake. Other recording resolutions include 2.7K at up to 120 fps for slow motion, and Full HD 1080p at up to 240 fps for super slow motion. Still images can be captured in up to 12MP resolution in bursts of up to 30 images per second.
The camera is waterproof without a housing down to 33? and supports an optional dive housing that will let you go deeper many times over.
