Rows upon rows of small, identical castles sit amongst the rolling hills of Turkey.

These castles were apart of a housing development which began in 2014 called Burj Al Babas. This was …

Hypersmooth stabilization refers to the improved electronic image stabilization feature. This stabilization now works in 4K/60fps mode, although it’s still digital and not optical stabilization. GoPro says it’ll allow for gimbal-like quality stabilization – so it must be good! And it is. Our tests unveiled that the results look amazing, especially when running or doing extreme sports.
Nick Woodman, founder of GoPro, has gone as far as calling this Hypersmooth Stabilization, “the best in-camera video stabilization in any camera, ever”.
Again, we agree. The in-camera stabilisation is amazing. I wish more cameras offered such a smooth and “invisible” in-camera stabilisation.
Although, the GoPro Hero 7 Black doesn’t come with a variety host of new shooting modes, it does come with important, cool tweaks. These tweaks make it an exciting improvement for both old and new users.
Let’s do the TimeWarp
Let’s do the TimeWarp agaaaiiin!
Related to HyperSmooth is the new time-lapse mode, TimeWarp. In this version of timelapse, the GoPro adds smooth stabilization allowing you to create a smooth first-person video, even on a bike ride.
So, it works like a standard timelapse, by taking stills at regular intervals and then playing them back. It’s just a lot smoother.
In this mode, the GoPro action camera is able to record video and then speed it up to add drama. Think flowers blooming, starts soaring through the night sky. We’re talking about drama with a capital D.
This feature is great for documenting a scenic road trip or enhancing your YouTube content. It’s cool and fresh and will make you look like a pro editor! We love it!
This is huge, you can now live stream straight to social media sites with the new GoPro Hero 7 Black.
Initially, you’re able to live stream to sites like Facebook, Vimeo, Twitch and YouTube. But GoPro has promised other platforms are on the way.
This new addition of live streaming is a plus for everyone. It allows you to quickly and easily wrangle your content onto a variety of sites.
While previously, GoPro cameras allowed you wrangle videos onto social media before, it was laborious. The GoPro Hero 7 Black just needs you to fire up the GoPro app with the touch of a button.
As we know, live video is trending and will continue to be a popular feature on social media.You’ll be a central part of this trend if you’re sharing your vacay footage straight from your GoPro. Talk about cool vlog content!
SuperPhoto is Super
The final two changes are a new ‘SuperPhoto’ feature for stills and a refreshed User Interface.
The Huawei P20 Pro does it and now GoPro is doing it too. ‘SuperPhoto’ is GoPro’s way of replicating the intelligent auto modes seen on some smartphones.
This is a high dynamic range (HDR) system and works as follows. The camera takes several exposures of the same photo and combines the best elements of each. Thus, one exceptional image is created.
As far as smartphone pictures go, the GoPro HDR photos definitely give them a run for their money.
These modes really are smart. They automatically recognize scenes and apply the appropriate camera settings. Along with this, the GoPro Hero 7 Black can even detect faces and smiles.
As can be seen above, improvements to this GoPro offer something for everyone. The range of tweaks span different aspects of the camera and make the 7 the most versatile of the GoPro action cameras.
Well, how about that. Mere hours after we reported on Drone DJ’s story that we wouldn’t see the long-fabled Mavic 2 pro controller at CES 2019, DJI announces that very item.
