GoPro Hero10 Black : The next-generation action camera
The Hero 10 Black is a professional tool, perhaps the finest GoPro the company has ever launched.
GoPro Hero 10 – GoPro is confident that its new Hero10 Black will ‘wow’ you. Yes, when the Hero9 Black was launched last year, it was already an excellent action camera. But with the Hero10 Black, GoPro has gone one step ahead with a device that feels a lot better, thanks to a new custom processor. It’s all about speed — snappier user interface, responsive on-screen menus, doubling of frame rates — now up to 120 frames per second in 4K, and 240 in 2.7K, and taking photos on this device is a delight. After using the Hero10 Black for weeks, I asked myself this question: where will GoPro go from here? Here’s my assessment of Hero10 Black and what GoPro is trying to achieve.

GoPro Hero 10 Black features
The GP2 SoC is the highlight of the new GoPro Hero 10 Black. This camera uses the same sensor as the previous model but because of the more powerful chip, the Hero 10 Black can now record video at up to 5.3K resolution at 60fps, versus 5K 30fps on the previous model. The frame rate has doubled for other resolutions too, so you can now shoot 4K 120fps and 2.7K 240fps videos. The Hero 10 Black can shoot 23-megapixel still photos, and you can now pull up to 19.6-megapixel frame grabs from a 5K video.
GoPro has developed a new HyperSmooth 4.0 stabilisation system, which works at more resolution and frame rate combinations than before. The in-camera Horizon Levelling feature has an increased tolerance from 27 degrees to 45 degrees. Other touches include a hydrophobic coating for the lens cover, better scratch resistance, and support for a wired connection to your phone for offloading content faster. The new image signal processor in the GP2 chip allows for noise reduction and local tone mapping in videos too, which means we should expect better detail and less noise in low-lit environments.
