From travel vlogs to extreme videos, GoPro stepped it up a notch. On September 21, 2018, GoPro, Inc. announced the launch of the GoPro HERO7 Black.
Sticking to GoPro’s sleek classic look, the HERO7 Black may look like its predecessors but packs so much more. Aside from delivering captivating 12-megapixel photos (in HDR and Raw), waterproof up to 10m, recording capabilities in slo-mo (120fps or 240fps), here are noteworthy additions to GoPro’s newest action camera:
No need for additional accessories to stabilize shots. Capture those extreme moments with ease. HyperSmooth eliminates the need for a gimbal by providing smooth and stabilized shots whether you’re walking, running, or mountain climbing.

GoPro is just making it easier for us!
