In recent months, we have seen many leaks related to GoPro’s new series of action cameras. About a year after the advent of the Hero6 line, the company is specialized in the category has officially announced the GoPro Hero7 family focusing on improving quality.
The highlight of the Hero7 Black has HyperSmooth stabilization, which the company says is the best in-camera video SuperPhotostabilization ever featured in a camera, offering gimbal-like stabilized video without a motorized gimbal. In addition, there is the TimeWarp feature, which function applies a high-speed, ‘magic-carpet-ride’ effect to videos. This transforms longer experiences into short, flowing videos up to 30x speed.
The camera supports a 4K resolution at 60 frames per second, with a live streaming option that can be done even when you are recording, simultaneously. It is the first GoPro to live stream so that you can share real-time videos on Facebook, Twitch, YouTube, Vimeo, and other platforms. Another highlight is the ability to capture videos and vertical photos, set photo timers, and limit videos to 15- or 30-second times.
It also has intelligent scene recognition to apply HDR to images, plus reworked audio capture that promises a wider dynamic range and reduced vibration pickup. If you enjoy slow motion video, you can record in Full HD (1080p) at 240 frames per second.
There are also HERO7 White with 10MP sensor and 1080p 60 fps capture and the HERO7 Silver with a 10MP sensor with HDR and 4K 30 fps capture, both with built-in battery and waterproof body and improved video stabilization.
