GoPro Hero 7 Black’s release is a significant milestone for GoPro. Recent releases have seen moderate incremental changes and improvements but the series 7’s release is causing a huge stir in the action camera marketplace due mainly to the Hero 7 black’s incredible in camera stabilisation. It really is a game changer.

Gimble-like stability

We hear claims all the time about how amazing a camera’s stability is, but the Hero 7 Black’s needs to be seen to be believed (I recommend you look at some YouTube clips!). From the many clips I’ve seen, Hyper Smooth Stabilisation is as good as gimble stabilisation in many cases and surprisingly, better than it at times too. Of course, there are times when the gimble wins out…but usually not by much. One main difference is that when the camera angle changes, the horizon remains horizontal when the camera is mounted on a gimble, that doesn’t happen with the Hero 7 Black. In saying that, I found the 7 Black’s videos often more immersive for just that reason.

Another game changer is Time Warp video. Essentially, it’s an in camera hyperlapse and its output is incredibly smooth. It’s much better that the hyperlapses I’m used to seeing because they tent to be a bit jittery. Again, it really is something worth checking out on YouTube.

New interface

The whole interface has been re-designed and is much simpler, it’s more like a conventional smart phone now with easy to use, left and right swiping menus. If you rotate the camera to a portrait position the menus will rotate with you and you can even shoot in portrait mode. The camera also responds to voice commands, there are 15 in total.

Image quality

Boosted by an additional 1GB of RAM and a GP1 chip, the RAW capable Hero 7 Black can capture 12MP stills at up to 30 frames per second (FPS). In Super Photo mode it can capture images with a wide dynamic range using HDR, localised tone mapping and noise reduction so you can see more details in the darks and highlights of contrasty images.

Video can be recorded at up to 4K Wide at 60 FPS (4K Super Wide is at 30 FPS) and 2.7K Wide at 120 FPS it also captures 1080p Wide at 240 FPS which effectively provide an 8X Slow Motion effect when played back at 30 FPS.  You can even stream live now.

There is also a timer in the camera with a count down on the front screen of the camera, great for selfies.

Audio tweaks

One of the minor complaints about the Hero 6 was its audio quality which was a bit muddy and muffled. Well the audio on the Hero 7 Black is very much improved, there are three microphones (as opposed to two on the White and Silver variants) and the waterproof membrane has been replaced.

Taken as Red

The GoPro 7 series are all as rugged and flexible as ever and are rated 10 meters underwater. The body’s basic design remains the same as the Hero 6 series which means the multitude of accessories are interchangeable with the Hero 7, that’s great news.

I think I’ll get one!
