The Hero 10 Black is the latest addition to the line, and it’s packed with upgrades in picture quality and frame rate over its predecessors. The stabilization of the house brand has also been improved.
GoPro Hero 10 Black is an action camera that can record video at 5.3K resolution
The action camera market has found a niche sector to exploit, and it is growing more competitive every year. GoPro still reigns supreme with each release, and it appears that things will remain as they are this year. The new GoPro Hero 10 Black has just been presented and comes with a leap in recording quality difficult to match.
In terms of resistance, the new GoPro Hero 10 Black improves yet further. According to GoPro, it is more resistant than ever before, able to go down up to 10 meters underwater. Furthermore, unlike its predecessor, it will not require a specific encapsulation. You can put it in the sea, pool, or whatever comes directly out of the box.
Recording capabilities have been improved and the GoPro Hero 10 Black can record video in 5.3K resolution at 60 frames per second, to put it in perspective many high-end cell phones only record in 4K at 60fps. 4K recording has also received improvements and now reaches 120 frames per second.
Having high frame rates allows for much better quality slow motion to be created in the subsequent editing of the resulting videos. The frames per second at which the GoPro Hero 10 Black can record rises to 240fps when downsampling to 2K and HD resolution, allowing for faster editing or a greater sense of fluidity.
The sensor of the GoPro Hero 10 Black is 23 megapixels, however, when recording at 5K it is 16.9 megapixels, and at 5.3K it is 15.8 megapixels. It is now possible to capture images from footage with a greater than acceptable level of quality thanks to the ability to record at these resolutions
The Hero’s safety promise that this steadiness can even with situations when the shaking is strong, such as down a trail of stones on a bicycle or correcting up to 45 degrees of camera tilt. The Hero 10 Black has two displays: one on the front and one in the back.
The front screen is 1.4 inches and is used to quickly see what is being recorded, especially in situations where a person is recording themselves. The rear screen is 2.27 inches and is also touch-sensitive as it is used to manage recording modes and resolutions.
Connectivity has been improved and now the GoPro Hero 10 Black offers three ways to transfer content. The classic way is to remove the MicroSD Class 10 or UHS-I card as a minimum, but you can also connect a USB cable directly to the mobile device in order to view all recorded content.
Of course, it can also be transferred wirelessly using both the GoPro application called Quik. The company claims that it is now up to 30% faster when transferring data and, in addition, you can also upload content to the GoPro cloud. Having this service means paying a monthly fee of 49,99 dollars per year.
The GoPro Hero 10 Black is now available on GoPro’s official website. The starting price for the new action camera destined to be the ceiling of this sector is $505 and offers a one-year subscription to the GoPro cloud. If we want the camera, but without this service, we will have to pay 625 dollars.
