GoPro Hero7 Black
It’s been a while a since we were this excited about a GoPro, but we opened the box to this one like a kid on Christmas morning. The big reason for the excitement is the built in image stabilization GoPro calls “HyperSmooth,” and the improved 4k 60fps, and 1920×1080 240 fps footage.
For the non-nerds in the room, that basically gives you incredibly stable video without a gimbal, and frame rates that accommodate slow motion video at full HD resolution. We’re major fans, since riding with a big gimbal on your chest is never much fun. It’s been a while since we got a new GoPro, but the new voice command feature is also a huge help. No more fumbling around pushing buttons while riding. Want to take a burst photo on a cool feature? Just say it, and GoPro will do it. It’s impressive just how much better the photo and video quality has gotten. It’s still just as tough too, and it’s water proof to 33 feet.
We’ve been using ours for a few weeks now and absolutely love it. The new user interface is top notch, and the features are not only useful but incredibly functional. In our time riding with it, we can’t believe just how well the HyperSmooth video works. Even over rough rock gardens on a short travel bike, footage is buttery smooth. If you’re someone wanting to have minimal tooling to make amazing videos on your own, this camera is probably the best bang for the buck you can get.
