GoPro Hero 10 Black can shoot 4k 120 fps & 5.3k 60 fps with a new processor.
Hero10 Black, GoPro’s newest action camera, was launched on Thursday, September 16th, 2021, with an enhanced processor and increased overall performance. The GoPro Hero 10 Black costs $499, but you can get it for $399 if you sign up for a $50 yearly membership. It’s now for sale in the United States.
The Hero 10 has the same appearance as its predecessor but has a more powerful GP2 CPU. It’s still a little compact camera with a small “selfie” preview screen on the front. Vloggers and selfie aficionados will appreciate the ability to use the front screen for better framing. The new action camera can also record 5.3K films at 60 frames per second or 4K videos at 120 frames per second. This is an improvement over last year’s model, which was limited to 4K at 60 frames per second or 5K at 30 frames per second. The Hero 10 can also record 2.7K at 240 frames per second.
GoPro shifted to its own processors in its cameras starting with the hero 6 black in 2017, and the GP1 processor lasted until the hero 9 black. In the Hero 10 Black, you’ll get GoPro’s new GP2 processor. With a new innovative GP2 chip that shoots 5.3K video at double the frame rate, 23MP pictures, improved low-light performance, and ground-breaking HyperSmooth 4.0 stabilization in all modes, this camera sets new standards.
So what are the changes in Hero 10 compared to Hero 9?
In comparison to hero 9 black, hero 10 black has a photo resolution of up to 23 megapixels, up from 20 megapixels on the hero 9 black. You get the latest hyper-smooth 4.0 image stabilization and video resolution up to 5.3 k at 60 frames per second and 4k at 120 frames per second. The battery in both the Hero 10 black and the Hero 9 is the same. Batteries, as well as the GoPro mods, will function with both cameras. The media mod adds extra ports and a shotgun mike, while the max lens mod provides an ultra-wide-angle vision. The lens cover on the Gopro 10 has been upgraded to a hydrophobic watershed in a glass.
With the Hero 10, you can record in 4K at 24 frames per second, 30 frames per second, 60 frames per second, and now 120 frames per second, so you can get high-resolution footage that provides you with a smooth action and
slow-motion video. If you want to take things even slower, it can also shoot at 2.7 k or 1080p at 240 frames per second. Stabilization is offered in every one of them along with GoPro’s improved performance.
Currently, the camera’s best stabilization hyper smooth 4.0 is available in 5.3k 30, 4k 60, and 2.7k at 120 frames
per second. Stabilization also works while live streaming with the 4k video at 120 frames per second.
