Incredible image quality, even better HyperSmooth video stabilization and a huge boost in battery life come together in the latest and greatest GoPro—HERO12 Black.
It takes best-in-class 5.3K video and adds High Dynamic Range (HDR) to capture once-in-a-lifetime journeys and amazing everyday moments in even more detail. Thanks to its improved power management, it delivers 2x longer continuous recording at 5.3K60 (70 minutes).
Tough, lightweight and easily mountable for hands-free recording, it’s ready for anything (on land or in the water) while advanced video stabilization keeps your footage smooth over rough terrain. After recording, simply plug in your GoPro. While it’s charging, your footage will automatically upload to the cloud and be sent to your phone as a highlight video that lets you relive your adventure and share the fun.
Rugged + Waterproof to 33ft (10m)
Completely waterproof and as tough as ever, HERO12 Black is ready to capture the fun on any adventure. Its legendary durability can take a beating and keep going, whether you’re ripping through mud, snow or water (down to 33ft/10m). A water-repelling lens cover even helps eliminate lens flare and other artifacts to make your photos and videos even more stunning.
2x Longer Runtime
HERO12 Black’s dramatically improved battery efficiency combines with the included 1720mAh Enduro battery to deliver a huge 2x increase in 5.3K60 video runtime on each charge. You’ll get 70 minutes of continuous recording at 5.3K60 (our highest setting), plus over 1.5 hours at 5.3K30 and over 2.5 hours of continuous recording at 1080p30.6 Using advanced technology, Enduro also boosts performance in cold temperatures over previous GoPro cameras and batteries.
High Dynamic Range Video + Photo
HERO12 Black takes its best-in-class image quality to the next level with HDR for both videos (5.3K and 4K) and photos. Great in environments with both shadows and bright light, HDR captures the subtle details of the scene that might typically blend into the darkness of shadows or disappear in the bright spots of your shot. The result is dynamic footage with true-to-life color and precision.
Emmy® Award-Winning HyperSmooth 6.0 Stabilization
HyperSmooth continues to set the bar for insanely smooth footage and has the hardware to back it up—a 2021 Emmy® for In-Camera Sensor and Software Stabilization. HERO12 Black makes it even better by maximizing HyperSmooth AutoBoost performance with more stabilization while still delivering less image cropping. Bike, skate, ski, chase your kids through the park or get awesome pet POV shots—even the shakiest footage comes out silky smooth.
360° Horizon Lock
Give your videos the look of professional productions by keeping the horizon steady, straight and smooth. HERO12 Black’s Linear + Horizon Lock digital lens keeps your footage steady even if your camera rotates a full 360° during capture.4 Combined with HyperSmooth, Horizon Lock gives you 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.
Extra-Large Field of View
HERO12 Black’s powerful image sensor delivers the most expansive field of view ever on a HERO camera out of the box. It features extra-large 8:7 aspect ratio footage that gets more of the sky and horizon in each shot—giving you a huge canvas for your creativity. Simply use the GoPro Quik app to zoom in, crop and edit your shots while keeping the rich textures and sharpness of your footage. HERO12 Black takes 8:7 a step further with HyperView. This GoPro- exclusive digital lens takes 8:7 footage and serves it up 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.
8-Bit, 10-Bit + Log Video HERO12 Black lets you choose between capturing 8-bit, 10-bit or Log video. Capable of displaying over 1 billion colors, 10-bit color delivers enhanced color depth, smoother gradations and more realism in your videos, while
8-bit offers smaller file sizes. Advanced users can use Log to get more detail in their footage while making necessary color adjustments in postproduction.
Advanced users with more than one HERO12 Black can sync them with the exact same timecode to make multi-camera editing a lot easier. It works with Final Cut Pro, Adobe Premier and other editing software to further streamline post-production.
