GoPro has once again upped the ante in the action camera game with the release of the GoPro HERO12 Black. Priced at $400, this latest addition to the GoPro family brings a slew of exciting features that are sure to capture the attention of adventure enthusiasts and content creators alike.
One of the standout features of the HERO12 Black is its new vertical capture capabilities. You no longer need to jump out of an airplane to shoot epic vertical videos for platforms like TikTok. This action camera allows you to film in a 9:16 aspect ratio, perfect for creating engaging vertical content. What’s even more impressive is that it can maintain this ratio even when mounted horizontally, giving you the flexibility to capture the best angles.
The camera also boasts 5.3K continuous recording for over an hour, making it ideal for extended shooting sessions. Plus, the new vertical mode supports up to 2X slow motion, adding a creative touch to your videos.
For those looking to take their GoPro experience to the next level, there’s the $99 Max Lens Mod 2.0, offering a 177-degree field of view and 4K video at 60 FPS. This wide-angle lens takes your shots to the extreme, providing breathtaking perspectives that were previously unattainable.
GoPro has also made durability a priority, ensuring that the HERO12 Black can withstand the toughest conditions. With scratch-resistant glass and hydrophobic lens coating, it’s built to last, even when things get rough.
Improved power management means you can record up to 70 minutes of 5.3K, 60 FPS Ultra HD video with HyperSmooth 6.0 turned on. And with the QuickCapture mode, you can start recording at the press of a button, conserving battery life for those crucial moments.
Furthermore, GoPro has expanded its mounting options with 1.4-20 mounting threads, making it compatible with most tripods and accessories. Plus, a 48-inch collapsible extension pole with a Bluetooth remote shutter will be available soon, further enhancing your shooting experience. Preorders are now being taken at GoPro.com.
