The new GoPro includes some long-desired improvements, such a longer runtime and support for AirPods.
Action camera industry leader GoPro is adding some much-needed improvements to its flagship model. The GoPro Hero 12 Black was unveiled by the company on Wednesday.
In comparison to preceding models, the GoPro Hero 12 Black’s runtime on a fully charged battery is doubled. For Bluetooth devices like the Apple AirPods to function as a microphone or for voice commands, it also provides HDR video and wireless audio capabilities.
A standard tripod mount, the ability to capture vertical video while the GoPro is horizontal (making it easier to publish on social media), and enhancements for improved control and colour grading while editing footage are additional noteworthy additions to the flagship camera.
The GoPro Hero 12 Black and the Max Lens Mod 2.0 are both new products from the firm. The lens mounts to the GoPro and can capture images with a field of view of 177 degrees in 4K quality at 60 frames per second. When added, this makes the GoPro Hero 12 Black record 36% wider. For shooting near and in water, the Max Lens Mod 2.0 is made to be simple to attach.
The Max Lens Mod 2.0 will sell for $100, or $80 for GoPro subscribers, while the most recent flagship camera from GoPro will cost $400. Both are available for presale on the GoPro website and will be released on September 13.
