Motorboat & Yachting - - NEW GEAR -

Go Pro is ac­knowl­edged as the mar­ket leader in wa­ter­proof ac­tion cams, a po­si­tion it in­tends to pre­serve with the release of the Hero 7. Phys­i­cally, it mir­rors the pre­vi­ous model, re­tain­ing its 10-me­tre wa­ter re­sis­tance, up to 4K video qual­ity, and the su­per slow mo­tion 240-frames-per- sec­ond ca­pa­bil­ity. The main ad­van­tage of the new Hero 7 Black is im­proved sta­bil­i­sa­tion, de­scribed as ‘gim­ble-like’, a huge ben­e­fit on a fast boat. It also adds live stream­ing whilst sav­ing streamed video to the SD card, en­hanced au­dio record­ing, face de­tec­tion and a new fea­ture called Time­warp video, which works in a sim­i­lar way to time lapse but is much smoother. It costs £379.99, but in­ter­est­ingly Go Pro has in­tro­duced Hero7 ‘light’ ver­sions. The Hero7 Sil­ver and White are the same cam­era but with less fea­tures at lower price points.
