For the most part, the answer is a resounding yes. Not only is GoPro’s latest HERO7 Black camera a fantastic piece of equipment, but it’s also one of the best and most powerful action cameras available, capable of doing all the things you need it to do. Take it skiing or diving, for example, and you’ll be able to capture your every move with a degree of precision and clarity that’s simply not possible with other action cameras.
The GoPro has long been the camera of choice for action photographers thanks to its stabilization and all-around versatility. Thanks to a recent software update, the Gopro 4K can now shoot at a higher frame rate (60fps) in 4K quality. I used this camera to capture the running of the bulls in Pamplona this year (a running of the bulls where the bulls are just bulls for you non-Spanish speakers), and it did an excellent job, thanks to its 4K capabilities.
GoPro has been on the market for a while and has a long way of going. The official website for Gopro states that they are the “leader in capturing life in 1080p H.D. Action Sports and Adventure Videos.” The truth is, the company has been around since 2002 and has made quite a name for itself in the fields of action sports and adventure videos. They are also still going strong.
The GoPro might be a bit dated now, but it’s still one of the best action cameras in the business. Its mounting straps are a great help when mounting it to your helmet, and the ability to mount it to your helmet is an essential feature if you’re going to go jumping out of helicopters and other dangerous scrapes. With the 4K update, the camera can capture up to 60fps video at 720p and 1080p at 120fps, making it a must-have for action videos on the move.
