GoPro HERO 12 Black Action Camera

The best HERO camera we’ve ever made — HERO12 Black takes GoPro’s best-in-class image quality to the next level with new HDR (High Dynamic Range) 5.3K and 4K video, upgraded HyperSmooth 6.0 video stabilization and an industry-leading 177° field-of-view with Max Lens Mod 2.0. Other new features include a totally redesigned power management system for improved thermal performance and up to 2x longer runtimes, and Bluetooth audio support for Apple AirPods and other headphones to record sound and give remote voice commands. There are also pro-level features like wirelessly synchronizing multiple HERO 12s via timecode, advanced colour controls, and more. HERO 12 wraps all of this into GoPro’s legendary waterproof, ultra-rugged design to ensure you get the shot, no matter the environment. 

Does what only a GoPro can do.

With HyperSmooth 6.0, HERO 12 Black automatically ensures you get the widest shots possible while using video stabilization depending on your speed and movement in the scene.
