GoPro has released the new Hero 10 Black, its most rugged and feature-packed action camera to date.
If you’ve not jumped into the whole action cam scene, you’ll need to ask yourself a tough question: what the hell are you doing with your life? Now, while we’re not saying you need to be heliskiing off-piste or jumping the Grand Canyon on a Vesper, there are plenty of day-to-day interactions that can be caught on an action camera, sewn together in sections, and kept as a memento of life’s great little moments, and that process has become even easier with the arrival of the GoPro Hero 10 Black.
GoPro did to the action camera scene what DJI did for drones and Apple did for tablets. They’ve made things dead simple, dead stylish, and technologically razor-sharp, and the newest addition to the Hero lineup is no different.
Powered by a new GP2 processor that delivers two times the video frame rates – we’re talking 5.3K at 60fps, which means 91% more resolution than 4K – and spectacular image quality, the new action camera has an upgraded Hypersmooth 4.0 video stabilisation feature for when things get bumpy and a market-leading 23-megapixel photo resolution. Oh, and you can also upload content to the cloud while charging, one of three ways to transfer content from the new edition.
The camera makes getting great content – that’s viewable without a vomit bag in hand – dead simple, thanks to features like the in-camera horizon leveling, which has been increased to 45-degrees in high-performance setting, making chaotic video look smooth and steady. Improved low light performance makes shooting in the dark far easier, while a front colour display with a higher frame rate makes for a smoother live preview experience, and a rare touch display with touch zoom makes composition a breeze.
As you can imagine, the new Hero 10 Black is packed with improvements, ranging from 1080p webcam mode, HDR for dynamic stills, RAW image capture, a TimeWarp feature available in real and half-speed, built-in folding mounting fingers for attaching the camera to GoPro mounts, three microphones, and voice control in 11 languages.
In addition, a new protective lens cover features a ‘hydrophobic’ water-shedding design and protects a digital lens that offers Ultra-Wide, Wide, Linear, and Narrow perspectives.
The only limitation is your imagination.
