GoPro’s beloved Hero series lineup got an update recently. Dubbed as the Hero 7, the adrenaline junkies favorite is now available in Nepal in three variants: GoPro Hero 7 Black, Hero 7 Silver and Hero 7 White. Alongside the different moniker, the three cameras are likewise targeted to a different set of audiences. This time around, prices start at Rs. 26,500 for the Hero 7 White, Rs. 38,500 for the Hero 7 Silver, and Rs. 51,500 for the Hero 7 Black.
Let’s talk about the superior of the bunch; the Hero 7 Black. The favorite action cam is a proper upgrade to its predecessor: the Hero 6 Black. Alongside the change in number, the seventh variant of action cam also comes with some significant hardware and software upgrades, including the HyperSmooth feature.
Capable of shooting 4K videos at 60 fps, the Hero 7 Black is furthermore polished with the new GP1 chip which is expected to deliver even more than the Hero 6. And on top of that, the extra RAM has benefitted the action camera to such extent that it offers a smooth gimbal like stabilization even in bumpy conditions. The Hero 7 Black is also very capable of capturing a wide range of shake-free slow-mo videos.
Prior to that, the Hero 6’s GP1 chip was unable to offer such stabilization without a gimbal. With a tagline of “Gimbal Killer” the GoPro Hero 7 Black offers 4K video shooting at 60 fps and 1080p video shooting at 240 fps. The action cam is also capable of shooting 12MP RAW images, while built-in connectivity options like WiFi and GPS; durability and water resistance has always been a forte of GoPro’s action camera.
Talking about the remaining two, the Hero 7 Silver and White, both are targeted to users who are looking to dive into action camera experience for the first time. Meaning, both are cheap but are not as powerful as the Hero 7 Black edition. Both cameras lack the GP1 chip and are limited to shooting options as well. To point out few quirks, the Hero 7 Silver shoots 4K videos at 30 fps and 10MP images as opposed to the 60 fps and 12MP photos on Hero 7 Black, whilst the slow-mo features are also quite limited. On the other hand, the Hero 7 White doesn’t even shoot 4K videos.
