New GoPro Hero 10 Black Announcement

GoPro has announced another iteration of their action camera lineup, with the new Hero 10 Black:

GoPro today announced a new flagship action camera for its lineup, the HERO10 Black. The main update for the camera is a brand new processor inside, called the GP2, which enables big improvements to image quality and video captures, including recording at 5.3K revolution at up to 60 frames per second, 4K video capture bumped to a max of 120 FPS and 2.7K video at 240 FPS, which enables awesome slow-mo capabilities.

Almost exactly 10 years go, we reviewed the GoPro HD Hero 2. It wasn’t the first flagship camera from the company, but I’d argue it was instrumental in bringing the GoPro to the attention of the general public. Back then, the maximum resolution was 1080p, photos topped out at 5-megapixel and it came shrouded in that iconic waterproof housing.

 

A decade later, the Hero 10 Black (revealed today) offers a whopping 5.3K max video resolution, 23-megapixel photos, no longer needs a waterproof housing (for most uses) and has a slew of fancy shooting modes that we couldn’t even have imagined three presidents ago.

Many hardware things from the Hero 9 Black carry over, including the sensor, but GoPro dropped in a new processor, the GP2, which improves image processing, improves camera responsiveness, boosts video recording frame rates across the board (adding 5.3K at 60; 4K at 120 and 2.7K at 240 among things), and updating the image stabilization to the new HyperSmooth 4.0.

 

Otherwise, externally it is identical to the old Hero 9 Black meaning your Hero 9 Black accessories will carry over, but GoPro has brought back the  SuperView lens, which offers an even wider angle capture, and which will be available in new 5.3K 30/25/24 FPS capture modes when a firmware update arrives on November 16. That will also deliver support for GoPro’s Max Lens Mods, along with the ability to capture video in a variety of modes.

 

Battery life is an issue; it is being reported that the Hero 10 Black is even harder on the batteries than the old Hero 9 Black, meaning shorter recording times. Engadget reported that they could get the Hero 9 Black to record 4K at 30fps for about an hour and 40 minutes, while the Hero 10 Black only manages an hour and 10 minutes at the same resolution and frames.

 

Again, GoPro is pushing their yearly subscription service, pricing the GoPro Hero 10 Black at $399 USD with a bundled one-year GoPro subscription or for existing subscribers. Non-subscribers will pay $499 without the recurring sub, which will cost $49.99 annually or $4.99 per month after the trial. A bundle with a 32GB microSD card, a Shorty tripod mount, a magnetic swivel clip, and a additional battery will set you back $549USD without subscription, or $449 with one.

 

In short, this seems like a fairly minor update to the GoPro Hero Black lineup; I really don't see a need for anyone with the Hero 9 Black to upgrade, unless you need the small amount of additional features the Hero 10 Black brings. But for those with older GoPros or are looking to get one, this seems like something you should consider getting compared to the Hero 9 Black.

Seems great. The subscription thing is confusing. 

4K 120fps HDR is awesome.

With a GoPro subscription you can get a "no-questions-asked camera replacement" if you damage your camera (twice per year) which is pretty sweet, as well as unlimited cloud backup for photo and video taken on your GoPro. Also allows you to livestream at 1080p to anyone using a private URL generated from your account and gives you discounts when purchasing products from GoPro.com.

 

Honestly, sounds like a great deal if you ask me. It's not a "you can't use your camera if you don't pay this" kind of subscription like the Hero 10 purchase options suggest and frankly $50 a year for unlimited video backup is a steal all on its own. I see no reason why any individual would pay for the non-subscription model - you're spending $100 more to not get all the features listed above, which are then available for $50 a year after the first year if you don't cancel it (which you can after one year). I guess this option is for studios/companies etc. who are buying these in bulk?

I think different parts of it are available to different products. The camera exchange is available for the GoPro Fusion and the Hero 5 or later, while the video upload is - I believe - for any GoPro except the Fusion due to its huge file size, as it seems to be handled through a companion mobile app. I believe you need a Hero 7 or later to livestream at all so that is probably a requirement for the livestreaming thing here as well.

The only thing I don't like about GoPros is that you can't change the wide angle lense to something more usable for other recordings. Not everything looks good in fish-eye optics.

you can to some extent with this 9th/10th ones. but if you need something else there are dozens of smaller cameras now they you can stick whatever lens you want on.

Would be nice if the lens assembly could be detached and connected to the main box with a 2 meter wire or something adjustable. It's a mass placement thing I take issue with.
