GoPro Ups the Ante With New Hero 10 Black

If you’ve got travel adventures on the mind, be sure to pack the new GoPro Hero 10 Black, which offers great quality stills and video in a tiny, rugged package. 

There’s nothing better than capturing all those travel adventures, both for friends and family and as a keepsake. However, if you’re not one to invest in expensive (and bulky) camera gear and want to be able to shoot stills and video under almost any conditions, you might want to look at the newest GoPro action camera.

Not only is the GoPro Hero 10 Black waterproof to 10 meters and built to withstand travel’s many little bumps, but it’s easy to use and offers all the features of a mini film studio. The newest version of the brand’s acclaimed Hero line, the Hero 10 Black features a new GP2 processor that delivers two times faster video frame rates – including stunning 5.3K video at 60 frames per second  – and next generation image quality. The new processor also enables HyperSmooth 4.0 video stabilization, ensuring the smoothest shake-free video you’ve ever seen from any camera, regardless of price.

The Hero 10 Black’s all-new processor combines with an ultra-high resolution 23.6 megapixel sensor to enable shockingly life-like image quality. The camera’s highest video resolution of 5.3K delivers 91% more resolution than 4K and 665% more resolution than 1080p HD at an impressive 60 frames per second—allowing for fluid playback and 2X slow motion. 4K video can be captured at 120 frames per second (4X slow motion) and 2.7K video can be captured at 240 frames per second (8X slow motion). The new camera also offers improved video algorithms featuring local tone mapping (LTM) and 3D noise reduction (3DNR) that capture finer detail, more realistic textures and better contrast—even in low light.

The new Hero 10 Black also boasts higher resolution 23 megapixel photos, improved low-light performance and a significantly snappier user interface—all thanks to the increased performance of the camera’s new GP2 processor. In addition, the Hero 10 Black enables 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 amazing still images of sports and fast-paced activities.

GoPro’s shockingly good in-camera video stabilization also gets an upgrade to HyperSmooth 4.0, ensuring that Hero 10 Black smooths out even your most shake-ladened experiences. Its in-camera horizon leveling feature benefits from an increased tilt limit of 45-degrees in high-performance settings, up from 27-degrees, making even your most chaotic video footage look professionally smooth and steady.

The Hero 10 Black is also cloud connected—when plugged in to charge, the camera will automatically upload recently captured footage to your GoPro cloud account. This feature, along with unlimited cloud backup of your GoPro footage at original quality, is available for GoPro subscribers. The camera offers three ways to conveniently access your 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 Hero 9 Black; and 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.

If you've got travel adventures on the mind, be sure to pack the new GoPro Hero 10 Black, which offers great quality stills and video in a tiny, rugged package. 

Other features of the new edition include improved low light performance, a front colour display with higher frame rates for a smoother live preview experience; a faster, more responsive rare touch display with touch zoom; a new protective lens cover with a hydrophobic, water-shedding design; a Night Lapse mode; voice controls in 11 languages; and built-in folding mounting fingers for attaching the camera to GoPro mounts.
