Ever look at old video recordings of your young dad’s adventures and go like “if only he had FHD or higher resolution!” Well, thankfully, for your generation, the memories of every outdoor adventure you ever experienced can be recorded in eye-watering 5.3K and at a pretty impressive 60 fps – thanks to the new GoPro HERO10 Black Action Camera. That’s right, folks. The name for action camera is back with a follow-up to the HERO9, introduced a year ago.
With the new GoPro HERO10 Black Action Camera, it boasts a new GP2 processor that promised to deliver 2X faster video frame rates along with next-generation image quality. In addition to the aforementioned 5.3K video at 60fps, it also does 4K at 120 fps and 2.7K at 240 fps. That’s 8x slow-mo, btw, which is damn pretty awesome.
The new processor also touts improved video algorithms featuring local tone mapping and 3D noise reduction for capturing finer details with more realistic textures and better contrast.
Other features include upgraded HyperSmooth 4.0 Video Stabilization, higher 23-megapixel photo resolution, video stills at up to 19.6 MP, improved low-light performance, “a significantly snappier user interface,” and cloud-connected for backing up footage to the GoPro cloud while charging (subscription required).
The new GoPro HERO10 Black Action Camera is available now for US$399.98 with an included one-year GoPro subscription or US$499.99 without a subscription. GoPro subscription is available for US$49.99 annually or US$4.99 a month.
