GoPro has now announced the launch of its latest action-cam, the GoPro Hero 10 Black. The Hero 10 Black succeeds last year's Hero 9 Black and packs a slew of interesting features including a new GP2 chip and HyperSmooth 4.0. It's also a bit more expensive, though, with a US$499 MSRP.

GoPro has now officially launched its newest product in its highly vaunted action-cam lineup—the GoPro Hero 10 Black. The Hero 10 Black succeeds the Hero 9 Black with several technological upgrades designed to improve performance. 

The GoPro Hero 10 Black features GoPro's new GP2 SoC, which promises better performance, more responsive touch controls, and "double the frame rate" for even smoother footage. The Hero 10 Black also debuts GoPro's HyperSmooth 4.0, which is said to improve stabilization, low-light performance, and horizon leveling with a higher tilt limit to keep shots as straight as possible. 

The new action-cam offers 23 MP still capture, 5.3K video recording at 60 FPS, and 240 FPS slow-mo recording at 2.7K. 15.8 MP still images can also be grabbed from the original 5.3K videos.

Some software features of the GoPro Hero 10 Black include:

  • TimeWarp
  • Night Lapse
  • Time Lapse
  • Liveburst
  • GPS Performance Stickers

Hardware-wise, the Hero 10 Black features a 1720 mah battery, a 2. display, and water resistance at depths of up to 33m. Owners of the GoPro Hero 9 Black do not need new accessories, as the Hero 10 Black offers full compatibility with last-gen accessories. The GoPro Hero 10 Black goes on sale with a US$499 price tag, US$50 more than the Hero 9 Black launched at.

Buy the GoPro Hero 9 Black on Amazon for US$399.
