GoPro announced the new flagship, HERO7 Black, which sets a new bar for video stabilization with its standout feature, HyperSmooth.
HyperSmooth is the best in-camera video stabilization ever featured in a camera. It makes it easy to capture professional-looking, gimbal-like stabilized video without the expense or hassle of a motorized gimbal. And HyperSmooth works underwater and in high-shock and wind situations where gimbals fail.
With HERO7, GoPro is also introducing a radical new form of video called TimeWarp. TimeWarp Video applies a high-speed, ‘magic-carpet-ride’ effect to your videos and transforms longer experiences into short, flowing videos that are compelling to watch and easy to share.
HERO7 is the first GoPro to live stream, enabling users to automatically share in real time to Facebook, Twitch, YouTube, Vimeo and other platforms internationally.
The model will come in 3 options, HERO7 Black, HERO7 Silver and HERO7 White.
Here are the key features:
• HyperSmooth Stabilization – Gimbal-like stabilization without the gimbal
• Live Stream – Automatic sharing as you live it while saving your streamed videos to your SD card in high definition
• TimeWarp Video – Super-stabilized time lapse ‘magic carpet ride’ videos of your experiences, up to 30x speed
• 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
• 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
