GoPro’s latest and greatest action camera, the HERO11 Black, has gone on sale on Amazon, coming at a price of $499.99. it brings subtle improvements over the HERO10 Black and is also offered in the dual-battery charger variant that goes for slightly more and the Creator Edition for $699.99. In terms of design change, the latest device is virtually unchanged from an aesthetics point of view, but you still get the dual-screen feature that is available on the HERO10 Black.
You also get the ability to record at the 5.3K resolution at 60FPS, with 4K topping out 120FPS. For still image capture, though, the maximum resolution has increased from 23MP on last year’s model, to 27MP on the newest one, with features such as SuperPhoto, HDR, and RAW maintained. GoPro has improved video stabilization by introducing its HyperSmooth 5.0 technology, and for the first time, the company has introduced the Creator Edition.
Though you will have to pay more for the Creator Edition, the ‘Volta’ attachment brings a ton of versatility. It can be used as a tripod, and it can remotely start capturing your footage and adds an extra battery for additional runtime. A flashlight is also included at the top if you want to capture video in low-light areas.
Like previous models, the HERO11 Black is not just durable but also waterproof up to 33 feet or 10 meters, but you can get additional protection by purchasing an aftermarket waterproof housing for the action camera. Like the action camera, GoPro has also introduced a ‘tougher’ Enduro battery, which lasts longer in extreme temperatures, with the company claiming a 38 percent extended recording time in moderate temperatures.
For this year, you have two options, so let us know which one you are going to pick.
