GoPro Hero 7 Review – Create Super Smooth 4K Videos Easily

GoPro Hero 7 boasts its ability to create super smooth videos even without the help of gimbals.

Curious to know more???

So let`s dive into the review.

Design
Hero 7 Black comes with a similar design to its predecessor. GoPro seems to prioritize new superior capabilities rather than new appearance.

This new model brings a newly redesigned microphone membrane to improve overall sound quality and reduce vibration sounds from bone-shaking moments.

The 2-inch touchscreen on the back is bright and sharp enough for quick previews of your shots while the black settings bar menu looks clearer than Hero 6.

And as you would expect, the camera is rugged and durable including waterproofing up to 10m without an added case.

Performance
The main star in this new model is what GoPro calls “Hypersmooth” a boosted version of excellent electronic image stabilization (EIS) on Hero 6 Black.

With Hypersmooth, the camera predicts your movements and corrects for camera shake to deliver insanely smooth footage.

And unlike its predecessor, it now works during the top whack 4K/60fps recording.

This waterproof 4K action camera still uses the same processor, lens, and sensor size so don`t expect better video and photo quality than Hero 6 Black.

There’s a time-lapse mode called “TimeWarp” that makes it easy to shoot smooth, fast time-lapse videos.

It also offers a new capability to live stream via your smartphone with 720p or 480p resolution, to Facebook, YouTube, and Instagram.

For audio, Hero 7 provide beefier bass and much clearer mids than Hero 6 Black while the dual microphones still do a decent job of reducing wind noise.

The battery allows you to have around 1hr 45mins of continuous video at 1080p/30fps or 45 minutes at 4K/60fps.
