If you love being outdoors, the GoPro Hero 7 is a perfect companion. This new GoPro camera has new features like Hypersmooth stabilization to get even better videos while you are on the move. Compared to previous models it also has a much better microphone to capture sound. The Hero 7 made it onto our best underwater camera list thanks to its image stabilization.

Why We Like It – GoPro Hero 7

The GoPro Hero 7 is an excellent action cam that offers high picture quality and 4K video quality with high frame rates. The Hero 7 Black is also waterproof and can be upgraded with the media mod, display mod, light mod, or even digital lenses.

  • Fantastic stabilization
  • Great image quality
  • Waterproof
  • Battery life gets drained fast
  • Expensive
  • Only waterproof to ten meters


GoPro cameras are known for their legendary performance and the Hero 7 Black is no different. It can video in 4K60, and take 12 MP photos. It also comes with many photo modes like Timewarp, SuperPhoto, and 8x Slo-mo. One of the highlights is the Hypersmooth stabilization technology that makes every video buttery smooth. The Black GoPro 7 features are excellent and some of them can compare to the new design GoPro Hero8 Black and the DJI Osmo Action. If you need a camera that can go deeper, the Akaso EK7000 is a better option.


GoPro action cameras are renowned for their innovative design and the Hero 7 continues the tradition. It comes in a compact package with an attractive matte black finish. To prevent scratches, the lens is protected by a removable lens cover. The Hero 7 is also waterproof up to ten meters so it’s ideal for some water activities. The best new feature called Hypersmooth eliminates the need for a gimbal and makes recording super-easy even with bumps and vibrations. Everything about the Hero 7 is classy and it compares well against rivals like the Hero8 Black, Osmo Action, and Nikon W300.

Unlike the Lyfeshot Blynk timelapse camera, the GoPro Hero 7 has many fantastic features like 4K video recording and a 12 MP camera. The video quality is superb, especially when you use features like Timewarp and Slo-Mo. Even the picture quality is excellent and SuperPhoto delivers professional photos that look like they need an image credit. You can use the GoPro app to edit your pictures and videos to make them even better and to keep them safe. When considering the price against the features, this camera offers excellent value. For a cheaper option, check out the APEMAN A79.

GoPro Hero 7 Wrap Up

The GoPro Hero 7 is still a great action camera with many great features. Both the video and picture quality is fantastic and the image stabilization is also good. The battery life might not be that great, but the same goes for most action cameras. The Hero 7 is probably one of the best action cams we’ve seen. Obviously, until the GoPro Hero 8 Black review comes out.
