Meet The New Family:
- HERO11 Black: The world’s most versatile camera, more powerful and convenient than ever before. Featuring GoPro’s proven signature HERO camera design, durability and performance, HERO11 Black is set to be the camera more professionals and enthusiasts turn to than any other to capture immersive footage that makes you feel like you were there.
- HERO11 Black Creator Edition: An all-in-one content capturing powerhouse that makes vlogging, filmmaking and live streaming easy with an ultra-lightweight design that fits into the palm of your hand. It features all of HERO11 Black’s performance plus a long-lasting battery grip with built-in buttons for one-handed camera control and over four hours of 4K recording per charge. HERO11 Black Creator Edition also includes an optional directional microphone, external mic input, HDMI port for connecting to external displays, a high-output LED light and two cold shoe mounts for mounting additional accessories.
- HERO11 Black Mini: A smaller, lighter, simpler version of HERO11 Black that features all of the performance of its bigger sibling. HERO11 Black Mini’s smaller size and simple one-button design could make it a great choice for people who want maximum simplicity without sacrificing even a hint of performance or quality.
New Technology and Features
The new sensor delivers over 1 billion colours in 10-bit colour video at up to 5.3K resolution at 60 frames per second in both HERO11 Black and HERO11 Black Mini and 27-megapixel photos in HERO11 Black for images that are truer to how your eyes perceive them in the real world.
