The GoPro Hero7 sets a new standard for video stabilization with its newest feature, Hypersmooth, that provides an easier way to capture professional-looking stabilized videos without the expense or hassle of a motorized gimbal.

With HERO7 Black, GoPro is also introducing a radical new form of video called TimeWarp which applies a high-speed, ‘magic-carpet-ride’ effect to the videos. It also works underwater and in high-shock and wind situations where gimbals fail.

Elevating the standout feature even further, HERO7 Black is the first GoPro to live stream, enabling users to automatically share in real time to Facebook, Twitch, YouTube, Vimeo and other platforms.

Other features of HERO7 Black:

SuperPhoto – Intelligent scene analyzation for professional-looking photos via automatically applied HDR, Local Tone Mapping and Multi-Frame Noise Reduction

Portrait Mode – Native vertical-capture for easy sharing to Instagram Stories, Snapchat and more

Enhanced Audio – Re-engineered audio captures increased dynamic range, new microphone membrane reduces unwanted vibrations during mounted situations

Intuitive Touch Interface – 2-inch touch display with simplified user interface enables native vertical (portrait) use of camera

Face, Smile + Scene Detection – HERO7 Black recognizes faces, expressions and scene-types to enhance automatic QuikStory edits on the GoPro app

Short Clips – Restricts video recording to 15- or 30-second clips for faster transfer to phone, editing and sharing. Great for new users and kids.

Photo Timer – Countdown timer for convenient selfies and group shots

Stunning Image Quality – 4K60 video and 12MP photos

Ultra Slo-Mo – 8x slow motion in 1080p240

Rugged and Waterproof – Waterproof without a housing to 33ft (10m), goes everywhere your phone can’t
