GoPro HERO7 Black with HyperSmooth Gimbal-like stabilization, live streaming announced

GoPro today introduced HERO7 Black, after a leak  earlier this month. It has HyperSmooth, which the company says is the best in-camera video SuperPhotostabilization ever featured in a camera, offering gimbal-like stabilized video without a motorized gimbal. The feature also works underwater and in high-shock and wind situations.

It has a new TimeWarp Video feature that applies a high-speed, ‘magic-carpet-ride’ effect to  videos. This transforms longer experiences into short, flowing videos up to 30x speed. It is the first GoPro to live stream so that you can share real time videos on Facebook, Twitch, YouTube, Vimeo and other platforms.

There are also HERO7 White with 10MP sensor and 1080p 60 fps capture and the HERO7 Silver with 10MP sensor with HDR and 4K 30 fps capture, both with built-in battery and waterproof body and improved video stabilization.
