Performance

The GoPro Hero range is known for its exceptional performance and the Hero7 Black continues the tradition. In video mode, the GoPro Hero7 can record in 4K at 60fps and uses Hypersmooth stabilization to deliver smooth and stable shots every time. It can also record in Full HD at 240fps and 8x slo-mo. Other excellent features on this Black GoPro camera include Timewarp videos, SuperPhoto, as well a Linear, Wide, and Narrow views. Our Hero7 Black review has found it to have terrific performance that almost matches the Hero8 Black.

Design

The Hero7 comes in GoPro’s standard black box design that’s proven to be tough and durable. It’s also waterproof up to ten meters without a housing The front is dominated by the lens with a removable lens cover and a small monochrome LCD screen that displays the settings. The rear has a large, clear 2-inch touchscreen with a quick response. The GoPro Hero7 Black also comes with a removable rechargeable battery and memory card reader. In our design review GoPro’s Hero7 did well and beat the older Hero5 Black.

Value

The GoPro Hero7 Black has lots of brilliant features and is very rugged. It can record video in 4K that’s clear and stable thanks to the Hypersmooth stabilization. It can also take vivid 12 MP still images. As with most of the Hero range, this camera is built to be tough and should work well in any environment including underwater. All your content can also be live-streamed, or edited with the user-friendly GoPro app. Overall it represents good value for money, just like the Hero5 Session.

Saeed Wazir Wrap Up

The GoPro Hero7 Black is an awesome action camera that can record video in 4K, and also take amazing still images at 12MP. It comes with incredible image stabilization and also has modes like Timewarp to enhance the footage. The battery life may not be the best, but it’s easy to carry a spare for extended shoots. It may not be the latest camera in the GoPro Hero Range, but it’s still worth getting.
