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: can this pocket powerhouse beat DJI's gutsy newcomer?

 

The action camera market has long been dominated by GoPro, but has it done enough with the Hero 7 Black to stay ahead of the pack? Time to find out...

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...

The Hero 7 Black is GoPro's most advanced camera yet

 

The renowned action camera manufacturer introduces an all-new product lineup

Nevertheless, we will wait to see how the Hero 7 performs. It’s likely to be the best product of its type on the market, but will it be worth buying?

GoPro Hero 7 Black review: The Hype(erSmooth) is real

 

I'm always skeptical of hype, but the hype around the Hero 7 Black's Hypersmooth is real.

HyperSmooth produces astonishingly smooth footage;TimeWarp makes it easy to shoot Hyperlapse;Redesigned UI is easy to use;Rugged and hardy camera

Low battery life;Noisy videos and photos in low light
