Revolutionary New Image Sensor
HERO12 Black’s powerful new image sensor delivers the most expansive field of view
ever on a HERO camera out of the box. This gives you an extra-large canvas for your
creativity by capturing more of the sky and horizon in every shot. Simply use the GoPro
Quik app to zoom in, crop your shots, adjust aspect ratios and more while keeping the
rich textures and sharpness of your footage.
Unbelievable Image Quality
With 5.3K video that gives you 91% more resolution than 4K and an incredible 665%
more than 1080p, HERO12 Black captures the action with crisp detail and cinematic
image quality. A water-repelling lens cover even helps eliminate lens flare and other
artifacts to make your photos and videos even more stunning.
High-Res Photos + Videos, High Frame Rate
HERO12 Black’s new image sensor boosts photo resolution up to an incredible 27MP
while delivering 5.3K60 video with amazingly fluid motion. You can also grab stunning
photos up to 24.7MP of favorite shots from your videos using the GoPro Quik app. Plus,
record 2.7K240 video that can be played back in 8x slo-mo to catch details that can’t
be seen at normal speed.
Emmy® Award-Winning HyperSmooth Stabilization
HyperSmooth has never been better. And now it’s won a huge award for its insanely
smooth footage—a 2021 Emmy® for In-Camera Sensor and Software Stabilization.
HyperSmooth 6.0 raises the bar even more with processing speeds up to 4x faster than the previous HyperSmooth 5.0 Horizon lock now works even at sharper angles.
Give your videos the look of professional productions by keeping the horizon steady,
straight and smooth when using the Linear + Horizon Lock digital lens. HERO12 Black
delivers Horizon Lock, which keeps your footage steady even if your camera rotates
a full 360° during capture.2 Combined with HyperSmooth, Horizon Lock delivers super
smooth footage that looks perfectly straight when you want it to. You won’t need a
gimbal or stabilization software for pro-quality results.
Rugged + Waterproof to 33ft (10m)
Completely waterproof and as tough as ever, HERO12 Black is versatile enough for any
adventure. It’s built to take a beating and keep going, whether you’re ripping through
mud, snow or water (to depths of 33ft/10m). The durable and scratch-resistant lens cover
adds even more protection and can be easily replaced if needed.
Long-Lasting Enduro Battery Included
HERO12 Black comes with the ground-breaking Enduro battery. Using advanced
technology, the 1720mAh Enduro dramatically improves camera performance in
cold temperatures while also extending recording times by up to 38% in moderate
temperatures over previous GoPro cameras and batteries.3
It lets you power through
ski, snowboard and other winter shots at lower temperatures than ever. It also charges
faster so you’ll spend less time waiting and more time chasing your adventure.
Over 1 Billion Colors
HERO12 Black lets you choose between capturing 8-bit or 10-bit color. Capable of
displaying over 1 billion colors, 10-bit color delivers enhanced color depth, smoother
gradations and more realism in your videos.
New HyperView Digital Lens
This GoPro-exclusive lens takes the 8:7 aspect ratio footage served up by our new image
sensor and delivers it as a wide-angle 16:9 shot. The result is ultra immersive video that
amps up action-oriented POV footage by capturing more of you and your surroundings. A new 9:16 vertical aspect ratio is also available, perfect for content creators seeking a faster workflow.
Ultra Versatile 8:7 Aspect Ratio
The 8:7 aspect ratio captures more of the scene in each shot. Using the app, you can zoom in on the best sections of your videos to create high-resolution punchouts of the action while cropping out the rest. Also great for photos, this versatile format makes it easy to change the aspect ratio and make other adjustments to fine-tune your shots after you’ve taken them.
Front + Rear LCD Screens
Frame your shots perfectly with either the front or rear LCD screen. Use the large rear
touch screen to capture the scene in front of you or turn your camera around and use
the front screen for vlogging and self-capture. The front screen features smooth live
preview with crisp detail, while the rear screen’s snappy touch controls make it easy to
swap capture modes and adjust settings on the fly.
New Night Effects
HERO12 Black features three Time Lapse modes that let you get creative after dark.
Star Trails uses the Earth’s rotation and stars to capture beautiful light trails across the
night sky. Light Painting lets you create brilliant brush stroke effects with moving light.
Vehicle Light Trails uses night-time traffic to record stunning light trail footage.
