GoPro Hero 7 Black

GoPro has an amazing trade in deal going on right now. Trade in “any” old camera and get $100 off the new Hero 7 Black. It was too good to pass up, so I dug up a really old, beat up point and shoot and sent it in. A few days later FedEx delivered the old camera to GoPro. I was then charged the discounted amount and a few days later, the Hero 7 Black appeared in the mail.

In the Box
Hero 7 Black, USB cord, battery, lots of little attachments for different mounts, stickers, manual.

Initial Impression
After powering up, there was an update to perform, via the phone. After a few minutes, it was good to go. The menu system is all new from the Hero 6 Black, but not too bad to get used too. A few more swipes are involved to get to all the different modes and preferences. Accessories from the Hero 6 work just fine, including batteries and my handheld GoPro Shorty mini tripod. I am looking forward to testing out the Hypersmooth to see if all the hype is true.

After 3 week of use
I’m very pleased so far.  The hypersmooth is really impressive and is a noticeable improvement from the Hero 6’s stabilization. The new menu system is easy to navigate after a few attempts. Also new for this version is the Timewarp, which is the equivalent of timelapse on the iPhone these days. I tried it out a few times and the video whirred by really quick, so I think the settings might need to be tweaked a bit to slow things down. It was a blur. The 4k video and still pictures are clear and crisp.

I don’t really have any negatives at this time. I really liked the Hero 6, but the extra stabilization on the Hero 7 makes it even better. I’m a huge fan.

I love it. I love it. I love it.
