Not to be outdone by DJI announcing the OSMO Action 3, GoPro has countered with not one but three versions of the GoPro 11 – the Hero11 Black, Hero11 Creator Edition and Black Mini.
According to the company all three share:
- Emmy Award®-winning HyperSmooth 5.0 technology with in-camera 360-degree Horizon Lock to keep your footage steady even if your camera rotates a full 360 degrees during capture.
- New hyper-immersive HyperView digital lens delivers the widest angle 16:9 shot ever produced natively in a HERO camera. It’s for high-action point-of-view capture. Plus, GoPro’s signature SuperView is now available in 5.3K60 and 4K120.
- Three new Night Effect Time Lapse presets that make capturing pro-quality Star Trails, Light Painting and Vehicle Light Trails easy.
- TimeWarp 3.0 now captures at 5.3K, an impressive 91% leap in resolution from 4K, and an incredible 665% more than 1080p.
- Simpler camera control with Easy and Pro modes. Easy Controls make it easier than ever to record in the best setting for any situation, while Pro Controls unlock every aspect of your HERO11 camera for maximum creative control.
- Enduro Battery dramatically improves camera performance in cold and moderate temperatures, extending recording times up to 38% in HERO11 Black. Enduro comes in-box with HERO11 Black and HERO11 Black Creator Edition and as a built-in Enduro battery in HERO11 Black Mini.
In addition, the Creator Edition has a long lasting battery grip with built in buttons for single handed control, 4 hours of 4K recording per battery charge external mic input, an HDMI port, LED light and a pair of cold shoe mounts. In other words, they have incorporated the old Media Mod into the system it seems.
The Mini on the other is a smaller, lighter version of the standard Black with a simple single button design.
The new sensor is larger then its predecessor enabling 8:7 aspect ratio video which means it can now be used vertically for TikTok 9:16 videos. Colour resolution is now 10 bit.
GoPro says the HERO11 Black is available globally today at $649.95 (AUD) for GoPro Subscribers and $799.95 MSRP. HERO11 Black Creator Edition is also available globally today at $929.95 for GoPro Subscribers and $1099.95 MSRP. HERO11 Black Mini will be available at GoPro.com on Oct. 25 for $499.95 for GoPro Subscribers and $649.95 MSRP, rolling out to retailers globally thereafter.
