GoPro drops teaser video for Hero10 camera ahead of Thursday’s reveal

GoPro is set to reveal the latest iteration of its popular action camera on Thursday, September 16.

The California-based company has just dropped a slick teaser video (below) for the Hero10 Black. The 57-second production, titled A New Era of GoPro, shows a slew of beautifully cinematic and highly dramatic action shots (you wouldn’t really expect anything less) as GoPro attempts to create a buzz around its latest product release.

The footage doesn’t show the updated action camera itself, nor does it reveal any camera specs. But recent leaks, if they prove reliable, suggest plenty of notable improvements to the current model.

For example, the rumored introduction of a new GP2 processor looks set to boost the camera’s processing power, while the image sensor is expected to feature 23 megapixels, up from the 20 megapixels on the Hero9 Black.

It also seems likely that the Hero10 Black will support 5.3K video recording at 60 frames per second (fps), 4K video at 120 fps, and 2.7K video at 240 fps.

Recent Hero cameras only supported 5K recording at 30 fps, 4K recording at 60 fps, and 2.7K at 120 fps, so this would certainly be a welcome improvement.

We can also expect to see an enhanced version of GoPro’s HyperSmooth electronic stabilization technology that produces gimbal-like results for super-smooth footage.

There’s no information yet on pricing, though we’re likely to see the device land for around $450, as that was the launch price for the Hero9 Black.

Looking to get your first action camera or keen to replace your current one? Then take a moment to browse through these suggestions for some of the best ones currently available. Also, check back soon to find out more about GoPro’s Hero10 Black, as that may well turn out to be the one to get.

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.
