**New for 2019** GoPro’s top-of-the-line HERO7 Black Edition is the top 4K action camera on the market. The big new feature for 2019 is HyperSmooth image stabilization, which is a breakthrough in stabilization technology. Action cams are made to be in shaky environments, and image stabilization is key.

The HERO7 Black also can shoot 4K60 video (4K at 60fps), and HyperSmooth works, even at this high resolution and framerate. For many applications the HyperSmooth will replace a gimbal for stabilization. Another new feature is Time Warp Video which is a time lapse movie, that uses HyperSmooth to give you a much smoother and less jittier time lapse movie. Both of these technologies are readily superior when compared to prior models. A new Live Streaming application allows you to show streaming live video to social media like Facebook.

Best of 2019 Award Smart-Review Commentary: The GoPro HERO7 Black Edition has won our CES best of 2019 award. GoPro has added more memory to the camera to add new features. This includes our favorite new feature, HyperSmooth image stabilization, which is a huge jump in technology. HyperSmooth even works at 4K/60p. It is amazing to see the difference from the older stabilization technology. The new Time Warp feature makes time lapse movies much more stable. Live video streaming is now available to social media such as Facebook, and only available on this model. The audio from the 3 microphones has been tweaked and improved on the HERO7 black.

Battery life shooting at 4K resolution is about 1 hour. Battery can be charged in camera with USB. The HERO7 Black can be controlled over WiFi with a Smartphone, or for even greater range, you can get a GoPro remote.
