Following a leak last month, GoPro has officially unveiled their latest action camera with the Hero10 Black.
“HERO10 Black is one of the most impressive cameras in the world, regardless of price,” said Nicholas Woodman, GoPro founder and CEO. “Congratulations to our product and engineering teams on creating such a worthy 10th edition of our beloved HERO camera.”
One of the biggest changes is thew new GP2 processor, which enables the Hero10 Black to shoot in 5.3K video at 60fps, 4K120 and 2.7K240.
This is a step up from the Hero9 Black, which was limited to 5K30, 4K60, 2.7K120, 1440p120, 1080p240.
You can also take 23MP stills on the new camera and your footage should be even smoother thanks to HyperSmooth 4.0 video stabilization.
Other modes and features on the Hero10 Black include TimeWarp 3.0, RAW photos, SuperPhoto, HDR and webcam mode.
The battery is still 1720mAh like the Hero9 Black, so you should expect similar battery life.
The camera is also cloud connected when you plug it in to charge. GoPro says the Hero10 Black will automatically upload recently captured footage to your GoPro account.
The Hero10 Black is also compatible with all the Hero9 Black Mods. However, you’ll need to wait until November 2021 for a software update to enable the Max Lens Mod on the new camera.
The company just recently launched unlimited cloud backup of GoPro footage for their subscription, which is $5.99 CAD per month or $59.99 CAD per year.
