THE ACTION HERO
When Gopro sticks to what it does best – compact action cameras – it’s like Thanos: It has zero competition. Of its three Hero 7s, Black (the other two are White and Grey) makes it very possible to create pro-looking 4K videos that might have been shot with a gimbal (even without a gimbal). How: Its Hypersmooth stabilisation feature “smooths over” every shake, bump and vibration so that even a mountain bike trip over the toughest terrain doesn’t give viewers motion sickness.
Black is also made for live streaming real-time adventures on Facebook, Youtube, Twitch and Vimeo (with more platforms to come). Other cool features are Timewarp for time-lapse videos, Portrait Mode for vertical videos for easy social media sharing, and Face, Smile, and Scene Detection. It’s $595.
