GoPro Hero 10 Black Review: Our Favorite Action Camera Gets an Upgrade
The most bizarre thing about the new Hero 10 on GoPro that everyone can have it. However, amid the lack of a chip with multiple trucks cluttering multiple supply chains and ruining the entire industry, the GoPro has released a new camera where the principle of upgrading is a new one. ong processor.
It’s also impressive the GoPro’s over -performance squeezed from the existing image sensor with that beefier processor. Hero 10 offers faster video – 4K footage can now be captured at 120 frames per second, and 5.3K footage at 60 fps. The user interface is also snappier, the start time is shorter, and the onscreen menus are quicker to respond. The new processor also has the ability to capture higher resolution images from your videos.
The Hero 10 Black is exceptionally unrecognizable from its predecessor, except for the new blue logo. The enclosure, screens, lens, and image sensor have not been changed. It’s light weight (3 percent), which is good. On paper, the Hero 10 may look a little disappointing, but GoPro’s new processor, dubbed GP2, brings some weird improvements to the Hero 10 that make it worthwhile. upgrade.
The GP2 is the first GoPro processor upgrade since the Hero 6 was launched more than four years ago. GoPro puts more processing power to use, making the Hero 10 even more of the same image sensor as the Hero 9. In addition to improved frame rates for 5.3K and 4K footage, the Hero 10 can also shoot 1080 video at 270 fps, producing some surprisingly slow-moving video.
The new processor also drives the latest version of GoPro’s video stabilization software system, Hypersmooth 4. Hypersmooth’s electronic video stabilization is a key factor that sets GoPro apart from its competitors, and this is a big part of why the Hero series has been ours for so long favorite action camera.
Because of the way it is frame plants to produce a stabilizing video, Hypersmooth was not previously available to shoot 5.3K footage. But with the Hero 10, the look can be used while shooting 5.3K, 30-fps video. That means you can capture high -resolution video at 5.3K, smooth out any vibration, and take a cropped 4K video as output. This reason alone is enough to make the Hero 10 worth the upgrade for pro photographers who rely on POV action shots in their work. Hypersmooth is also currently working on 4K 60-fps footage and 1080p 120-fps footage.
Another improvement to Hypersmooth’s headlining is horizon leveling. Hero 10 can correct your shot to maintain the horizon level from a full 45 degree tilt (up from the 27 degree tilt of the Hero 9). Unfortunately, this trick doesn’t work when shooting at 5.3K, but it does work with 4K 60-fps footage.
