B&H jumped the gun and revealed GoPros three new cameras. The company is back to a three tier scheme marked by colors.
The GoPro Hero7 Black is the top model with 4K at 60fps video capture. The most important addition here is HyperSmooth video stabilization, which promises gimbal-like smoothness. The cameras 12MP sensor can capture 30fps photo bursts and RAW photos. Theres a SuperPhoto Auto HDR feature as well.
The Black model offers high bandwidth video capture up to 78Mbps in 4K/60 and is the only one here that has an external mic input and a removable battery. Live streaming is exclusive to the Black as well.
The GoPro Hero7 Silver has a 10MP sensor and it tops out at 4K at 30fps, also it has regular video stabilization. A feature available on all three models is vertical portrait mode for an Instagram Stories kind of aesthetic.
The GoPro Hero7 White is the basic model. It uses the same 10MP sensor, but tops out at 1080p at 60fps.
