GoPro have set the camera-world abuzz by announcing the release of it’s new flagship action camera; the GoPro Hero7 Black.
Introduced to the world only last week, the new GoPro Hero7 will succeed the Hero6, which was released alongside the ground-breaking Fusion 360 camera.
The Hero7 has kept many features found in previous models including a 12MP camera, video up to 4K resolution at 60fps, voice control, burst mode, time lapse, slow mo and waterproof to 10M (33FT).
A new SuperPhoto mode is featured with the Hero7’s 12MP camera that automatically works with HDR, local tone mapping and noise reduction to produce eye-catching images.
It also features the standard 1’4″ screw-in attachment, allowing you to attach such tripods like the 3 Legged Thing Iggy Mini Tripod Kit.
But the Hero7’s biggest and newest feature is it’s incredible gimbal-like stabilisation when shooting video. GoPro have achieved this thanks to the use of its GP1 chip (first featured in the Hero6 camera) and a lot more extra RAM.
The Hero7 Black “predicts your movements and corrects for camera shake to deliver insanely smooth footage,” says GoPro. Check it out for yourself in the video below.
