The GoPro Hero 10 Black is a big step up from the Hero 9, which leapt forward compared to the previous model. Yes, GoPro has continued to deliver an even more impressive experience to users. This comes thanks to their brand new GP2 processor. The highlights of the upgrades this time around are focussed around the 23-megapixel photos capture, improved low-light performance, even tougher device and a significantly snappier user interface.
We recently covered the unlimited data upload as part of the GoPro Cloud account. This gives you unlimited uploads for $69.99 per year, including automatic uploads when your camera is plugged in and connected to Wi-Fi.
One of the biggest perks of being a subscriber is the discounted purchases from GoPro. In the case of the HERO10 Black, you can pick one up for $599.95 AUD with an included one-year GoPro Subscription or $749.95 AUD without a subscription.
The Camera, software and upgrades
As already mentioned, there are a lot of upgrades on the GoPro Hero 10 Black starting with the 23.6-megapixel sensor. This brings another step up to the image quality for both video and still shots now with the capacity to capture 5.3K at 60 frames per second. If you’re happy with 4K capture, then you can capture up to 120 FPS making slow-motion far smoother and in greater detail.
This greater detail is also an area that GP2 has a finger in the pie with textures and contrasts being clearer, even in low light thanks to the combination of GP2 and sensors. This also results in great quality stills of up to 19.6 megapixels that can be pulled from 5K 4:3 video. So your video can also become a source for great still shots of your adventures and fun times with family.
Hypersmooth 4.0 is impressive, very impressive!
On the GoPro Hero 9 last year, it was easy to see that for a lot of activities you likely wouldn’t need a gimbal to keep your footage smooth. This year with GP2 aiding the capacity to smooth out the video footage, even on a pretty rough ride there wasn’t any noticeable need for it at all. Yeah, a GoPro does cost a fair chunk of money but compared to some other options – You save a bit too.
Accessing your videos just got easier too. We’ve already mentioned the automatic cloud uploads, but what if you want to grab them while you’re still out? That’s just as simple as it has been with previous models, but the news gets better with faster wireless downloading of your video to your mobile or, wired download for even faster speeds.
There really is so much to like about the GoPro Hero 10 Black. We can say that because we have one on the test bench which had an immediately positive impression from the unboxing because of the lack of plastic packaging. We’ll bring more information with our review coming to the site very soon.
