GoPro HERO7 Black features

Whether you’re testing your limits on an off-road adventure on the slopes of an active volcano or braving the crowds at the Chatuchak weekend market – GoPro’s latest HERO7 Black is here to prove that it’s the only camera you need to document any kind of holiday. 

The all-new HERO7 Black ($595) delivers a host of new features such as in-camera video stabilization and direct live streaming and is available at authorised retailers Challenger, Harvey Norman, and Courts. Here are some features we’re currently lusting over:


HyperSmooth Video Stabilisation


This viral video in which a seal slapped a kayaker with an octopus was filmed with a GoPro HERO7 Black. Check out how stable the footage is when the slap happens, even in choppy waters!

Anybody with an interest in videography can tell you that camera stabilisers don’t come cheap. And worse, they’re bulky-looking gizmos you don’t want to be seen with or be lugging around while you’re out soaking up all the world has to offer.

Here’s a comparison between an older GoPro model and the HERO7 Black

Perfect for vlogging enthusiasts and professionals alike, the inbuilt HyperSmooth function on HERO7 Black takes the cake for the best in-camera video stabilization ever seen in a camera. So no matter your skill level, you can always expect the end-result to look professional and fuzz-free. 

Better still, HyperSmooth has been put to the test and will even deliver the best video quality underwater or when in high-shock and wind.


Time Warp – a high-speed, ‘magic-carpet-ride’ effect to your videos

This video was made with us running, no stabilisers used. Low image quality is due to image compression on TSL. 

Similar to the hyperlapse function on our smartphones, the HERO7 Black also comes equipped with a TimeWarp video function that applies a high-speed, ‘magic-carpet-ride’ effect to your footage minus the noise and vibrations.


Direct Camera-Facebook Live Streaming


The HERO7 Black lets you upgrade your live stream videos beyond the limits of your smartphone with their Live Streaming function. Share your adventures in real time and in HD to all your social media platforms such as Facebook, YouTube, Vimeo and more. Your live footage is also saved to your SD card in high resolution should you need to go back and edit it further.

IG addicts will be thrilled by the portrait mode for native vertical-capture in wet, rough or snowy conditions that allows for easy sharing on Instagram Stories and Snapchat.
