Even though it doesn’t change much from its predecessor, the GoPro Hero 10 Black is much faster, easier to use, and better made.
This action camera is the most flexible one you can buy in India right now.
The most important change is the new GP2 chipset, which allows for new slow-motion frame rates, faster transfer speeds, and better picture quality.
But one thing that hasn’t changed is how long the battery lasts.
The GoPro Hero 10 Black is the latest action camera from a brand that has become a synonym for the type.
The new GP2 processor makes it the most powerful and well-made version yet.
Still, it’s not a big step up from the Hero 9 Black, which it replaced.
The new version also lets you shoot at different frame rates and resolutions.
You can now shoot in slow motion at 4K/120p and 2.7K/240p, which is fun and useful—no it’s longer just a novelty.
The Hero 10 Black has the same 23MP 1/2.3-inch sensor and is waterproof down to 10 metres as its predecessor, but it’s the new GP2 processor that gives it most of its new abilities.
5.3K/60p, 4K/120p, and 2.7K/240p are some of the new shooting modes.
Other changes include a touchscreen interface that works much better, a new wired data transfer mode for phones, and some improvements to image quality that aren’t visible to the user, such as local tone mapping and better noise reduction in low light.
There are some small improvements to the quality of videos because of this.
Most people will care more about the fact that HyperSmooth 4.0 is still the best video stabilisation technology for action cameras.
Watersports fans will like the lens cover’s new hydrophobic coating, which repels water.
Even so, the GoPro Hero 10 Black does a nice job of improving on the Hero 9 Black’s improvements to image quality, and it’s the most powerful and easy-to-use action camera you can buy in India right now.
When and how much the GoPro Hero 10 Black will cost
The GoPro Hero 10 Black will cost Rs 54,500 in India when it comes out on October 25.
Tatacliq is now taking orders for the camera before it comes out (opens in a new tab).
Soon, you’ll be able to get the Hero 10 Black on other platforms.
A subscription to the GoPro Quik app costs Rs 499 per year or Rs 99 per month.
On Amazon, the GoPro Hero 9 Black costs Rs 35,350 in India, while the Hero 8 Black costs Rs 29,915.
What About Other Features?
The GoPro Hero 10 Black looks a lot like the Heo 9 Black, but you can see one difference.
The logo on the side and front of the Hero 10 Black is written in blue, while the logo on the last-generation camera was written in grey.
Aside from this, the Hero 10 Black is the same as its predecessor in every other way.
If you like water sports, you will like the changes that GoPro has made to its front lens.
The lens cover now has a hydrophobic coating that repels water, and it works.
We ran the Hero 10 Black and its predecessor under a faucet, and the new lens cover was much better at keeping water away, leaving no droplets.
Features: Like the Hero 9 Black, the GoPro Hero 10 Black has a 1/2.3-inch, 23.6-megapixel sensor.
But the new action camera is faster because it comes with a new GP2 processor that lets you use some useful new features.
The GP2 processor is the most important change for GoPros.
This is the first change to the SoC in four years.
The Hero 9 Black, with its two screens and high-resolution sensors, made it hard for the GP1 to keep up.
Most of the time, when we talk about how well the Hero 10 Black works, we will talk about its new GP2 chipset.
The new chip improves performance by 2x, has Hypersmooth 4.0, makes the whole experience fast, reduces 3D noise in low light, and speeds up both wired and wireless transfer speeds.
The bad news is that the battery life and overheating get worse.
The 10 Black has the same battery as the Hero 9 Black.
The Hero 9 Black’s battery is 1,720mAh, which is more than any other GoPro battery.
But the Hero 10 Black’s more demanding dual screens and high frame-rate modes use up a lot of that space.
What About The Battery?
Next, let’s talk about how long the battery lasts.
As we’ve already said, the GoPro Hero 10 Black has the same 1,720mAh battery as the GoPro Hero 9.
With the new shooting modes, this also means that the battery life was expected to drop even more.
In our battery test, we were able to get about 85 minutes of recording time from thro 10 by shooting a continuous 4K/30p clip with HyperSmooth and GPS both turned on and the screen brightness set to 70%.
If you shoot for too long without taking a break, you might also get too hot.
The battery life is, of course, affected by modes, frame rates, resolution, and other factors.
