GoPro announces new backpack and two bike mounts

GoPro: Introducing Seeker
Last week, GoPro took the wraps off three new high-end products. While GoPro fans still have some waiting to do for the Hero 5, it’s good to see these new innovations from the company. All three products, two mounts and a backpack, complement each other nicely, but the headliner is definitely the pack.

Called the Seeker, it is GoPro’s first backpack, and directly competes the best bags produced by third parties. The $170 bag features a large, 16-liter capacity with a dedicated camera compartment that securely stows five GoPros with underwater housings. The pack features an integrated shoulder strap and chest mounts for recording on the move, and also allows for a three-way pole to be mounted for over-the-shoulder shots. Like other action camera packs, the Seeker also includes room for a two-liter water reservoir.

The Pro Handlebar / Seatpost / Pole Mount is a redesigned and upgraded version of the original handlebar mount. At $60, it is designed for serious cyclists and mountain bikers. It features a lightweight aluminum construction and new, rotating camera mount that offers 360-degree freedom for locking in the perfect camera angle. It is the most flexible handlebar mount on the market, according to GoPro.

The Pro Handlebar / Seatpost / Pole Mount (as its rather long name would suggest) is suitable for a wide range of applications outside of cycling, as well. It can be mounted to any pole ranging in diameter from 22.2mm to 35mm. In GoPro’s product video, for example, it’s put to use shooting some creative selfies of a whitewater rafter from the perspective of the paddle.

GoPro: Introducing Pro Seat Rail Mount

In addition, the new Seat Rail Mount keeps a GoPro camera snugly mounted underneath a bike saddle. The bespoke, under-slung design leaves room on the seat post itself for a bike light (or, hey, another GoPro). It’s built to fit most two-rail saddles and provides an over-the-tire, rear-facing angle. When used with the GoPro Session, it also makes for a perfectly centered shot.

The new backpack and mounts are available now.

GoPro Hero 10 Black: 7 things I love and 2 that I don’t
The GoPro Hero 10 placed in an outdoor environment.

The GoPro Hero 10 Black is the company's most recent addition to its action camera lineup. I've had a chance to spend almost eight weeks with the camera to find out if the on-page specs translate to real-world usage? Here's what I loved about the Hero 10 while using it in my day-to-day life and short travels.
Seven things I loved
More responsive
The GoPro Hero 10 is much more responsive than the previous iterations of the camera. When I reviewed the Hero 8 and Hero 9, one of my biggest concerns was usability. While the functionality was amazing, the usability was not. Well, no more.

Thanks to the new processor, the GoPro Hero 10's usability is as good as its functionality. GoPro has finally done justice to its camera. Navigating through the interface feels on par with my iPhone's camera app. The new camera was a joy to use, thanks to a more responsive interface.
Amazing photos and slow-mo

The 5 best new GoPro Hero 10 Black features I love to use
GoPro Hero 10 Firmware V1.2.

When I reviewed the GoPro Hero 10 Black in September, I couldn’t help but heap praise on it. Though it’s clearly an evolutionary update to the Hero 9, the Hero 10 goes far enough to offer very real advantages over its predecessor. Between its 5.3K 60 frames per second, upgraded image stabilization, and impressive cloud storage integration, it’s certainly the most powerful action camera available right now.

However, GoPro hasn’t rested on its laurels over the past several months. Over that time, they’ve offered major firmware upgrades and even a post-launch hardware upgrade. With the Hero 10 so dramatically changed since its original launch, it’s worth taking a look at to see what else you can expect from the camera here at the tail end of 2021.
Max Superview
The GoPro Hero 10 features a 4:3 format sensor, but most video these days is displayed in a 16:9 aspect ratio. That typically means either cropping the image or putting up with black bars on the side of the display. GoPro’s Superview mode stretches the edges of the image so that you can take advantage of the entire 4:3 sensor area, but display it on a 16:9 screen at the cost of a fisheye effect.

GoPro boosts Hero 10 performance with new firmware and Enduro battery
GoPro Hero 10 Front Screen.

One of my few complaints when reviewing the GoPro Hero 10 Black was its somewhat fleeting battery life, and though I haven’t personally encountered the issue, many users have reported problems limiting recording times due to overheating. GoPro seems to have heard that message loud and clear, as they have announced a major firmware update for the camera that aims to solve the problems as well as a brand new Enduro battery.

The firmware (which will be available by the end of October) introduces three new video performance modes designed to maximize the Hero 10’s performance in different scenarios. Maximum video performance mode prioritizes high resolution, frame rate, and image quality. Extended battery mode limits resolution and frame rate to maximize recording times and battery life, while tripod/stationary video mode provides high performance when the camera is stationary, and there isn’t any airflow to cool the camera.
