GoPro HERO10 Black

While GoPro did not technically invent the first action camera, it can be argued that the company is solely responsible for ushering in this era of action cameras–effectively revolutionizing the world of video. The GoPro HERO10 isn’t so much a revolutionary improvement as it is a more polished version of what already works (i.e. its predecessor, the HERO9).

While the GoPro HERO10 Black is built with the same 1/2.3″ sensor as the HERO9, it does have one advantage over all of its predecessors (and most of its competition)–its GP2 processor. The new GP2 processor not only allows for more responsiveness, shorter start-up times, and smoother touchscreen performance; it also improves resolution and stabilization. It allows for higher fps (frames per second), more details, and less noise. The camera’s GP2 processor also allows users to get higher-resolution stills from their videos.

Sporting a hydrophobic (anti-fog) lens and a waterproof body (for up to 10ft without housing), the GoPro HERO10 is great for a wide variety of watersports. Its HyperSmooth 4.0 stabilization also makes the HERO10 perfect for sports like mountain biking, skiing, and running. If you want that perfect POV footage while biking or snowboarding, you’ll want to invest in GoPro’s adhesive mounts (which allow you to attach your GoPro anywhere on your helmet!).
