GoPro Hero 7 Black Review | Trusted Reviews

 

GoPro's flagship action cam returns with boosted image stabilisation, live-streaming and better audio. But is the Hero 7 Black still heroic by nature?

Superb image stabilisation ; Improved audio quality ; Impressive video and decent stills ; Waterproof without needing a case ; Huge range of mounts and accessories ; Now offers livestreaming

Can get very hot when recording 4K ; Occasionally sluggish or unresponsive UI ; Still relatively expensive

It's only a relatively small step forward from its predecessor, but the Hero 7 Black's excellent video quality, stabilisation, usability and range of mounts make it the best all-round action cam you can buy.

GoPro Hero 7 Black review: An action camera for the social age

 

The Hero 7 might not come with a host of new shooting modes or imaging improvements, but it does come with a few key tweaks that make it exciting to new and old users alike. The upgrade in stability alone will save hours of potential memories from the...

Much improved stabilization ; SuperPhoto adds better stills ; Live streaming adds a new way to “share” ; Improved UI

Minor hardware improvements for upgraders ; No improvement on battery life

GoPro Hero7 Black review: stabilised 4K video at 60fps is a game changer

 

The action camera market has long been dominated by GoPro, but has it done enough with this new cam to hold onto the crown?

Stabilisation really works ; Easy to use UI ; TimeWarp function ; Improved audio recording

Only Facebook live-steaming at launch ; No improvement to battery life

Review: GoPro Hero7 Black

 

With new image stabilization features, the top action cam gets even better.

Improved image stabilization mitigates more shake. Way better time lapse video capabilities. Waterproof mic is clearer. Live streaming features let you get rad with an audience.

New touchscreen interface needs some refinement. Same general specs from last year makes this update feel a bit iterative.

Livestreaming is now supported across a number of platforms, including YouTube and Facebook. Previous GoPros could only stream to Periscope. Now it will work with pretty much any platform that has an open API.

GoPro Hero7 Black

 

The GoPro Hero7 Black adds stabilization to 4K60 video, and is the company's lone action camera with live streaming support.

Compact, rugged design. Waterproof to 33 feet. 4K 60fps recording with stabilization. Up to 240fps at 1080p. Voice control. Smartphone app with streaming support.

Battery life could be better. Wi-Fi file transfer time can be lengthy.

Bottom Line: The GoPro Hero7 Black adds stabilization to 4K60 video, and is the lone Hero with live streaming support.

GoPro Hero7 Black review

 

Very stable genius

Excellent image stabilisation ; Good all-round image quality ; Compact, waterproof and tough

Battery drains quickly with 4K ; HEVC needs relatively new hardware

GoPro’s smoothest operator ever, and a brilliant flagship

GoPro Hero 7 Black initial review: Smooth operator

 

GoPro's new flagship action camera, the Hero 7 Black has some awesome features, including hyper smooth stabilisation.

Great stabilisation features ; Improved photography ; TimeWarp time-lapse effect is unreal ; Fits all the same mounts as before

Niche product won't have wide appeal ; Some HDR photos come out quite dark

GoPro's latest camera is undoubtedly its best yet. The advanced stabilisation works well in most conditions, improving massively on the Hero 6. It might not be enough for Hero 6 owners to upgrade, but anyone with any previous camera should consider it.

GoPro Hero 7 Black review

 

A great action camera is now even better

Great 4K video and image quality ; HyperSmooth is very effective ; TimeWarp is great fun ; Useful UI improvements

Can struggle with voice commands ; Screen unresponsive at times ; Slow-mo footage only output through app or software ; Many cheaper options

Using the GoPro Hero 7 Black reminds you just why the company has dominated this market. While expensive and not without fault, it's great to see the company paying attention to key areas like video stabilisation. Great videos, great images and, most...

GoPro Hero 7 Black review: GoPro’s HyperSmooth video makes the Hero even better

 

Buttery smooth video, waterproofing and HDR photography skills – the Hero 7 Black is the best action camera on the market

Waterproof at up to 10m without a case ; Video stabilisation is brilliant ; Stunning HDR photo quality

Frustrating app and user interface ; Mediocre battery life

It would be a flawless 5/5 Best Buy if it had a better user interface, longer battery life and more reliable connectivity. But, despite all of that, I can still recommend the Hero 7 Black. It’s sensibly priced for what it offers and, with the new...
