Bones FPV Camera Delivers a Specialized Solution for FPV Drone Cinematographers, Featuring HERO10 Black’s Award-Winning Video Stabilization Technology at Just 54 Grams.
The HERO10 Black Bones is the lightest GoPro ever, and it’s designed to be the best FPV (First Person View) drone camera. The camera has GoPro’s flagship imaging pipeline, including the high-performance GP2 CPU and Emmy® Award-Winning HyperSmooth 4.0, and is housed in a minimalistic, lightweight shell intended exclusively for FPV use.
“Bones is an important step in our strategy to leverage GoPro’s core camera-technology to produce derivative products that address the needs of a specific audience of customers,” said GoPro Founder and CEO Nicholas Woodman. “Bones delivers HERO10 Black image quality and performance in a lightweight body that is ideal for aerial cinematography.”
Whether at a local bowling alley, the Tesla Giga Berlin facility, or Manchester City’s Etihad Stadium, FPV is a rising creative trend that has wowed many with viewpoints only attainable utilizing FPV drones. With a weight of only 54 grams, the HERO10 Black Bones is the lightest GoPro ever, making it ideal for FPV capture. It offers only the essentials for FPV fans. The HERO10 Black Bones gives the highest image quality and stability per gram of weight because of its lightweight, well-ventilated chassis.
“Since the dawn of FPV, pilots have been adapting GoPro’s versatile HERO cameras to capture incredibly immersive perspectives in flight – going as far as sawing them apart to engineer a better solution to address their needs,” said Pablo Lema, GoPro VP of Product. “With HERO10 Black Bones, the FPV community now has the lightest GoPro ever – an easy to set up, no-compromise, custom-designed camera designed for the FPV use-case. We’re excited to see how far the community can push the limits of FPV content creation with HERO10 Black Bones.”
GoPro’s dedication to quality, adaptability, and blistering performance continues with the HERO10 Black. The photographic pipeline of the camera is safeguarded by a lightweight shell that includes the HERO10 Black’s removable cover lens, which can be swapped for third-party HERO10 Black and HERO9 Black ND filters.
HERO10 Black Bones can capture cinematic 5K 4:3 video at 30 frames per second, 4K 4:3 video at 60 frames per second, and 2.7K 4:3 video at a super-slow 120 frames per second. The camera ships with a license for GoPro’s Emmy® Award-Winning ReelSteady video stabilization – now part of the new GoPro Player + ReelSteady desktop application – enabling FPV pilots to unlock the smoothest, silkiest FPV footage ever, and with access to premium tools like Lens Correction and Batch Export within the new app.
