GoPro HERO10 Black

GoPro HERO10 Black

The GoPro HERO10 Black was launched in September 2021. It replaced the HERO9 Black as GoPro’s flagship action camera. It introduced a new GP2 chip that promised faster processing and more responsive controls. It shoots 5.3K60 and 4K120 video, 23MP photos, and uses new and improved HyperSmooth 4.0 video stabilization. It also boasts improved low-light performance and better horizon leveling.

The HERO10 uses the same camera body as the HERO9; both use the same accessories, such as batteries and housings. In late-2021, GoPro released a new high-performance Enduro battery designed for better performance in cold temperatures and faster charging in the HERO10 and HERO9.

When Was the GoPro HERO10 Black Released?

The GoPro HERO10 Black was launched in mid-September 2021. It’s the only camera in the HERO10 lineup. It replaced the HERO9 Black, and it was replaced by the HERO11 Black in September 2022.

The rollout of the HERO10 was bumpy. Users soon reported that the camera would consistently shut down after about 20 minutes of video recording for overheating. GoPro responded with a new firmware version (1.15) that was designed to address the issue but created even more problems. And users continued to report problems after the rollout of firmware v.1.16. The Max Lens Mod was also not initially supported.
