GoPro announces new HERO7 lineup
GoPro have today announced a new product lineup including its $599.95 flagship, HERO7 Black, which sets a new bar for video stabilisation with its standout feature, HyperSmooth.
HyperSmooth is the best in-camera video stabilisation ever featured in a camera. It makes it easy to capture professional-looking, gimbal-like stabilised video without the expense or hassle of a motorized gimbal. And HyperSmooth works underwater and in high-shock and wind situations where gimbals fail. HERO7 Black with HyperSmooth video stabilisation – you’ve got to see it to believe it.
With HERO7 Black, GoPro is also introducing a radical new form of video called TimeWarp. TimeWarp Video applies a high-speed, ‘magic-carpet-ride’ effect to your videos. Imagine a scenic drive, ocean dive or walk through the city compressed into a super-stabilised, sped-up version of itself, with the entire experience playing out in seconds.
TimeWarp Video transforms longer experiences into short, flowing videos that are compelling to watch and easy to share.
And when it comes to sharing, there’s no faster way to do it than live. HERO7 Black is the first GoPro to live stream, enabling users to automatically share in real time to Facebook, Twitch, YouTube, Vimeo and other platforms internationally. The result is an exciting and convenient way to share life’s more interesting, on-the-go moments.
“HERO7 Black is the GoPro we’ve all been waiting for,” said GoPro founder, Nick Woodman.
“With HyperSmooth video stabilisation, HERO7 Black is a camera anyone can use to capture amazingly smooth, professional looking shots of their favourite activities and they can do it live.”

Both HERO7 Silver and White feature significantly improved video stabilisation, making it easier to get great looking shots on-the-go.
