Whether you’re going downhill on a mountain bike, skydiving, or free climbing, GoPro video cameras are there with you more and more. The American manufacturer – and market leader in the sports sector – has now unveiled its latest model. The GoPro Hero7 is small, water-proof without casing, and robust – just like its predecessors – and has the top feature of smooth Ultra HD recording and innovative image stabilisation.
How the GoPro Hero7 models are different
There are three GoPro Hero7 models that differ in more than just casing colour:
- The GoPro Hero7 White makes recordings at maximum Full HD resolution (1,920 x 1,080 pixels) with a frame rate of 60 frames per second. The camera takes photos at up to 10 MP. Weight: 92.4 g; Dimensions: 62.3 x 44.9 x 28.3 mm.
- The GoPro Hero7 Silver makes recordings in Ultra HD or 4K resolution (4,096 x 2,160 pixels), and has a frame rate of 30 fps. It’s possible to take individual images of up to 10 MP. Weight: 94.4 g; Dimensions the same as Hero7 White.
- The top-of-the-line model, the GoPro Hero7 Black, films Ultra HD videos at up to 60 fps, and snaps individual images at a maximum of 12 MP. In addition, the Hero7 Black works with the new stabilisation technology Hypersmooth. Weight: 116.0 g; Dimensions: 62.3 x 44.9 x 33 mm.
The Hypersmooth technology in the Hero7 Black is entirely new. According to GoPro, this innovative software allows for smooth recordings without any shaking. It is supposed to be similarly as effective as the gimbal mechanical stabilisation system which is used in drones and significantly larger professional cameras. Another exciting feature of the Hero7 Black is the TimeWarp function for extremely smooth time-lapse videos.
All Hero7 models have an intuitive touch screen with a main recording mode for navigation that is as quick as it is simple. The videos can be automatically transferred to a smart phone and shared directly to social media.
