KEY POINTS

  • GoPro launched Hero 10 Black with the new GP2 processor
  • GPs brings higher frame rates and higher-quality images
  • With Hero 10 Black, images and footage can be uploaded during charging

GoPro has finally rolled out the Hero 10 Black powered by the company’s new processor with higher frame rates, better stabilization and automatic video upload.

After teasing about its upcoming device at the end of August, GoPro has now unveiled the Hero 10 Black, featuring a 23-megapixel photo resolution with a sensor that promises a better low light performance. For the first time since it launched the Hero 6 Black in 2017, the company has upgraded its processor to the new GP2 that brings a more impressive image quality and higher frame rates.

The GP2 processor on the Hero 10 Black allows a 5.3k video to go up to 60 frames per second while the 4K videos up to 120 frames per second. Its 2.7K videos can go up to 240 frames per second while its 4K videos can go up to 120 frames per second, PetaPixel reported.

Meanwhile, reports revealed that the Hero 10 Black powered by the GP2 processor also produces impressive video stills quality. The 5K 4:3 videos at 30 frames per second can produce a 19.6-megapixel video still, while the 5.3K Video at 60 frames per second can produce 15.8-megapixel video stills.

For extremely shaky video feeds, GoPro uses the HyperSmooth, a sensor stabilization that evens out motions in video footage. From the previous 27-degree tilt limit, GoPro increased the in-camera horizon leveling to 45 degrees. With almost double the tilt limit of its predecessor, the Hero 10 Black can smoothen even the shakiest video recording.

The GoPro’s new GP2 processor in Hero 10 Black makes the camera function similar to a smartphone in several ways. The newest addition to the GoPro family has a very responsive touch screen and is capable of heavy video processing and noise reduction, The Verge reported.

The GoPro Hero 10 can auto-upload its captured images and video footage to a GoPro cloud account even while charging. Users may offload their footage directly from the camera to the GoPro Quick app wirelessly. Another option is to offload the images and video recordings from the camera to the Quick mobile app through a USB connection.

The GoPro Hero 10 Black is priced at $400 with one year GoPro subscription for free. A GoPro subscription is $5 per month or $50 annually.
