If your primary use cases aren't going to take advantage of the improved stabilisation and live streaming, then we recommend sticking with the Hero 6 Black because it does keep up with the newer model in terms of its core shooting capabilities. Those who own a Hero 5 Black or older model on the other hand, will find the new Hero 7 Black to be a much better upgrade.

It might be a tad pricey, but if you want the very best in video recording quality, the Hero 7 Black is the action camera you want. Its HyperSmooth technology is jaw-dropping, its native waterproofing capabilities are impressive, and the still photograph quality is also stupendously good. It’s sensibly priced for what it offers and, with the new features, it’s the very best action camera you can buy.

Expensive but comes with the best video stabilisation

from Firstpost

If adventure is your life, get the GoPro Hero 7 Black. If you’re an occasional adventurer, go for lesser expensive options.

The best all-round action cam you can buy

from TrustedReviews

If you’re looking for a pocketable, waterproof camera that can shoot some excellent video from angles that are beyond your more restrictive (and fragile) smartphone, then the Hero 7 Black is one of the best you can buy.

Hypersmooth stabilisation makes gimbals obsolete

from VR-Zone

The real value in the Hero 7 Black is its ability to deliver professional-grade footage, both in terms of image quality and stabilisation. The added feature of TimeWarp makes for a brilliant videography trick that would help in telling stories, especially with today’s more snappy, fast-pace style of edits.

Excellent image stabilisation and good all-round image quality

from Stuff

HyperSmooth makes a huge impact on videos, which means we’d even suggest owners of the Hero6 Black give some thought into the upgrade. GoPro are making it easier to create top quality shareable video content across social channels too, so expect to see your instagram stories feed get a bit more action-packed.

Stabilised 4K video at 60fps is a game changer

from T3

The GoPro Hero7 Black is undoubtedly the most powerful action camera the company has created. This year’s updates have made getting professional looking shots easier, rather than bumping specs (for the same price as GoPro’s previous flagship £379), and as a result, we think GoPro has done enough to retain the action camera crown.

Ultimately, there’s nothing not to like here, but it feels more like an iterative upgrade rather than a whole new camera. That’s not a bad thing. The Hero6 Black was our number one recommended action cam last year, and the Hero7 Black is the same camera, but better. What’s unknown is if these updates will be enough to keep the Hero on the throne throughout another year.
