GoPro Hero 7 review:
Crazy smooth video stabilization, Easier-to-use touchscreen UI, Vertical video capture, Super simple sharing to Instagram Stories. HERO7 Black shoots stunning 4K60 video and 12MP photos that are as awesome as the moments themselves. With ultra high frame rate 1080p240 video, you can slow things down by up to 8x to relive funny, interesting or epic moments in all their glory. Capture all the action on bike trails, camping trips or boating adventures with the camera.
No real battery improvement, Low-light footage is a little soft.
The Bottom Line
The GoPro Hero 7 Black's built-in stabilization is so good it eliminates the need for expensive and clunky gimbals.
