GoPro Unveils the HERO7 Black, Silver, and White Action Cameras

Three new cameras make up the new Go Pro Hero 7 line-up with the $399 Black centre stage

Three new cameras make up the new Go Pro Hero 7 line-up with the $399 Black centre stage

GoPro has faced tough competition in the recent years with cheaper options coming into the market like the Yi 4K+ action camera that was announced back in February 2017 and offered 4K60, EIS & a maximum bitrate of up to 120MB/s and retail price of $299.99 Dollars. The family consists of three new cameras: the HERO7 Black, HERO7 Silver, and HERO7 white. Early reviewers seem to be of the opinion that this leads to impressive gimbal-like footage without the gimbal; with the added bonus that it works underwater and in the sort of high-shock and high-wind situations where gimbals can fail.

The Hero 7 Black boasts a few more new features too.

TimeWarp which is essentially a hyperlapse mode and SuperPhoto for built-in HDR photos are also available only in the Black.

The new GoPro Hero 7 line is obviously an attempt by the company to streamline its product offerings; along with today's announcements, GoPro revealed that its tiny, cube-shaped Session camera was being phased out as well. The Hero 7 uses the same 12-megapixel sensor, has the same custom GP1 processor (with a small bump in RAM), and offers the same capture capabilities: 4K video at 60-frames per second, 2K at 120-frames per second, and hi-def 1080P at 240-frames per second if you're after an extremely slow motion effect. You can still control it with your voice, use the touchscreen on the back, and bring it into water down to 33ft (10m).

The company claims that Hero 7 Black is the first GoPro that can live stream to Facebook, Twitch, YouTube, Vimeo and other platforms. There's built-in Global Positioning System, and the option to use it to add stickers tracking things like speed and elevation to your videos in the GoPro app.

Child’s Play Creator Reacts To First Look At New Chucky
What he didn't reveal was whether the murderous doll will be possessed by a serial killer, as he was in the original 1988 film. The new Child's Play reboot has started filming with a first look at the new Chucky released, which can be found below.

It's a 10-megapixel camera that can shoot 1080p60 video (there's no 4K). While it has some stabilisation functionality, it isn't the 3-axis HyperSmooth version that's debuting on the Hero 7 Black. There's no 8x slow mo either, but 2x instead.

The premium Hero 7 Black is priced at Rs. 36,000, while the mid-end Silver and entry-level White variants cost Rs. 27,000 and Rs. 19,000, respectively. Stills-wise, it shoots at 10MP rather than 12MP on the Black, and its maximum burst speed is 15fps rather than 30.

Along with the $399 HERO7 Black, GoPro announced the $299 HERO7 Silver and $199 HERO7 White-the flawless active-lifestyle cameras for entry- and mid-level users.

Pre-orders are open right now and the cameras are available from the 27th onwards (the 30th in the USA).
