GENERAL

The Hero 7 Black was introduced by GoPro in September 2018. It belongs to the outdoor and action cams category.

CategoryOutdoor & Action
Introduced09/2018

Drop test1.00 meter
Temp. range from-10.00 °C
SENSOR

The Hero 7 Black's image sensor has an effective resolution of around 12 megapixel. The resolution is somewhat below average but will be sufficient for most purposes. Photos with this resolution can easily be printed to A3 size.

The GoPro supports taking images in RAW. RAW images are stored as they come from the sensor, without any in-camera processing or sharpening. Converting to JPEG or other formats takes place on the computer, using software like Adobe Lightroom or GoPro's RAW converter. This involves one extra processing step but almost always results in superior image quality. Some filters, like converting to monochrome (black and white) will only yield decent results when used with RAW images.

DISPLAY
Hero 7 Black display and touch screen

The Hero 7 Black features a monitor with a diagonal of 52.00mm (2.0 in.) and a resolution of c. 0.24 megapixel. That rather low resolution is no longer state of the art and will make it difficult to evaluate images on the display.

Unfortunately, the Hero 7 Black's monitor is not articulated. That can make it tricky to frame your subject in some situations, e.g. when taking selfies.

The Hero 7 Black's monitor can work as a touch screen, just like a smartphone. That can be very useful, for example to pick AF points, but keep in mind that touch screens usually don't work when wearing gloves.

VIDEO

When recording videos with the Hero 7 Black, the highest supported resolution is 3840 x 2160 pixel, in other words 4K Video.

The camera features a connector for an external microphone, a neccessity for good video sound. A built-in mike will record everything in front and to the sides of the camera which is mostly not desired. Internal microphones also tend to record camera sounds like focus beeps.

Let's have a look at some other features of the GoPro Hero 7 Black:

GPS is already built into the Hero 7 Black; that will make it easy to categorize and tag photos afterwards. However, using the GPS receiver can reduce battery life considerably.

The Hero 7 Black features a built-in stabilizer. With a 1x zoom, that's not necessarily a requirement, but nice to have nonetheless.

The camera can create HDRs automatically. That saves you from manually creating sequences of images with variying exposure values.

The Hero 7 Black is environmentally sealed against dust and moisture; a very useful feature when you take the camera places.
