GoPro HERO 10 BlackGET IT
It’s been over ten years since we first saw our friends’ first GoPro footage—of what looked like them squatting and standing, squatting and standing, from the nose of their surfboards, snowboards, and wakeboards. Thankfully, our riding selfies have advanced since then. And so has the GoPro. In fact, GoPro has just releases its HERO 10 Black and everything about it is upgraded.
First off, the tech is solid with a new GP2 Processor that opens the door to 5.3K video at double the frame rate and 4.0 video stabilization mode—it looks like Scorsese is following you around your local hill or surf break. GoPro has always boasted pretty good resolution for its time but with 23 Megapixels, your “pictures” are now “photos.” It shoots better in low light for those cloudy sessions or action that happens right after the sun drops and allows for Super 8X Slo Mo shooting at 2.7K resolution. Colors pop and time stands still.
It’s waterproof down to a depth of 33 feet, and the HERO 10 Black boasts some pretty impressive convenience as well with Cloud Connect. Not only can you watch the footage via LCD screen on the back of the unit (this has been standard the last few generations) but you can now download a simple GoPro Quick app to your smartphone and the images from the GoPro transfer wirelessly to the app when it’s in range. So basically you can then scroll through on your phone, pick the ones you want and junk the rest really simply. (You can still do this by cable to your phone or the old fashioned way to your computer.) The HERO 10 features a new cable and batteries, so unfortunately those old parts you’ve acquired won’t transfer over, but the mounting remains the same. Now it’s up to you to do something better than just squatting and standing.—Jon Coen, Men’s Journal contributor
