GoPro Unveils New Hero10 Black Action Camera

GoPro has unveiled its latest flagship Hero10 Black action camera, which features the company’s new high-performance GP2 processor, promising enhanced image quality and faster video frame rates that enable the new camera to capture life-like 5.3K video at 60 frames per second, 4K video at 120 frames per second and 2.7K video at an incredible 240 frames per second. Moreover, GoPro says the new processor also enables HyperSmooth 4.0 video stabilization, claiming the HERO10 Black “captures the smoothest shake-free video you’ve ever seen from any camera, regardless of price.”

The Hero10 Black’s new GP2 processor also enables improved video algorithms featuring local tone mapping (LTM) and 3D noise reduction (3DNR) that capture finer detail, more realistic textures and better contrast, along with 23 megapixel photos, enabling 19.6 megapixel video stills to be pulled from 5K 4:3 video at 30 frames per second and 15.8 megapixel video stills from 5.3K video at 60 frames per second—ideal for capturing still images of sports and fast-paced activities.

Additionally, the Hero10 Black also gets upgraded video stabilization courtesy of GoPro’s HyperSmooth 4.0, ensuring that the camera smooths out even the most shake-ladened experiences. Also, the camera’s horizon leveling feature benefits from an increased tilt limit of 45° in high-performance settings, up from 27°, making even your most chaotic video footage look professionally smooth and steady.

Hero10 Black also offers three ways to conveniently access y photos and videos, including:

  • Auto uploading your most recent footage to your GoPro cloud account while the camera is charging 
  • Wireless offloading from the camera to the Quik app at speeds up to 30% faster than HERO9 Black
  • A new USB wired offload option that transfers content from the camera to the Quik app on your phone at speeds up to 50% faster than wireless.

The Hero10 Black is also cloud connected, automatically uploading recently captured footage to your GoPro cloud account when plugged in, a service from GoPro that provides unlimited cloud backup for $4.99 a month or $49.99 a year.

In addition to performance, GoPro also had environmental impact in mimd, using only plastic-free packaging with a reusable case.

“We’re as committed to reducing GoPro’s impact on the environment as we are to producing the world’s most versatile cameras and imaging software solutions,” says Nicholas Woodman, GoPro founder and CEO.

Hero10 Black sells for $399.98, which includes a one-year GoPro Subscription, or $499.99 without a subscription, while existing subscribers can purchase a value-added HERO10 Black + Accessory Bundle for $399.99 that includes an extension grip with tripod, a magnetic clip mount, a spare battery and a 32GB SD card.
