GoPro Hero 7 Black, Silver and White

GoPro has just released the next model in their GoPro Hero series – the GoPro Hero 7. Hero 7 comes in three different models, going back to the system that was dropped with Hero 5 and 6. Hero 7 now comes as BLACK, SILVER or WHITE version. We will go into details later but first the introduction video:

The most impressive feature of the Hero 7 seems to be image stabilization that gives almost gimbal like impression. There is a separate video that does just the old stabilization/new stabilization comparison:

Apart from that, the new Hero 7 is still waterproof without a special housing up to 10m, same as the 2 versions before. Design wise it is also very similar to the previous two versions which makes it simple to use all of your old accessories.

Voice control allows you to operate your camera as already seen in Hero 5. Hero 7 version understands 16 different voice commands.

Photography has also been improved. Resolution stays the same at 12MP as it makes no sense to increase the resolution with the same size sensor. But the photo quality has been improved with automatic HDR, local tone mapping and noise reduction—in any light. It has a timer and scene detection and you can zoom in with your fingers to better frame the shot.

Some other features are:

  • camera also allows you to stream live video to Facebook,
  • at 1080p240 you can get up to 8x slow motion,
  • time-lapse video is also stabilized,
  • you can shoot at 4K60,
  • you can use the camera to track your speed, distance and elevation and add this to videos in the GoPro app,
  • and more.

What can we say, we are excited and can’t wait it test it with our Split dome.

It is however not compatible with Hero 7 Silver and White.

Now we can move to the three different models, what are the differences? The most noticeable difference from the outside is that Hero 7 Silver and White don’t have the small front screen with quick info on camera status. You know, the shooting mode, image counter etc… What else? Here are the specifications:
