GoPro has officially announced the HERO10 Black. The latest generation action camera still inherits the design and features of the HERO9 Black. However, its performance is claimed to increase significantly with the use of a new processor chip.
HERO10 Black still looks very much like HERO9 Black. The rugged, durable design is maintained while the battery is stuck with 1720 mAh.
The second screen on the front is still the same. However, the second screen now comes with a higher frame rate. That way, the display on the front screen will look smoother. The main difference, HERO10 Black, now comes with a blue emblem.
Other features HERO10 Black still supports a series of GoPro Mod modular accessories consisting of Max Lens Mod, Media Mod, Display Mode, and Light Mod. The camera also supports control via voice commands, can be used for live broadcasts, and now supports Webcam mode.
The GoPro HERO10 Black is the first to use the GP2 processor chip. The brand new chip replaces the GP1 processor that GoPro introduced since the appearance of the HERO6 Black.
Thanks to the new processor, the performance of the action camera jumps up to two times better than the GoPro HERO9 Black.
Data processing capabilities are also faster. The HERO10 Black can now send videos to the user’s smartphone 30 percent faster than the HERO9 Black wirelessly. HERO10 Black is the first GoPro variant that can be directly connected to a smartphone.
The new chip also lets GoPro HERO10 Black be able to produce images that are more detailed and have better contrast.
The ability to record video is also increased. The HERO10 Black is capable of recording up to 5.3K/60p resolution. The action cam now supports up to 4K/120p and 2.7K/240p resolutions for more cinematic slow-motion video recording.
For photography, users can now take photos with a resolution of 19.6 megapixels from 5.3K 4:3 resolution video clips.
The emergence of the latest generation of GoPro HERO Black must coincide with the newest generation of its stabilizer feature, HyperSmooth.
The HERO10 Black HyperSmooth is now in its fourth generation. The stabilization ability is getting better. GoPro provides three stabilization options to choose from: off, standard, and boost.
According to GoPro, the Boost video option will indeed experience a crop. However, this option is the most optimal for stabilizing video capture.
