All-In-One Creative Toolkit

The game-changing HERO12 Black with unbelievable image quality. A super-versatile hand grip with all-day charge and one-handed control. Tons of mounting options. Light. Sound. And unlimited cloud backup.

Pro-Level 5.3K Video

Get best-in-class image quality with ultra-sharp 5.3K 60, 4K 120 and 2.7K 240 resolutions. Plus you can grab 24.7MP photos from video.

All-New HDR Video

HDR (High Dynamic Range) Video delivers greater detail and colour in highlights and is now available in 5.3K and 4K 60.

One shot. Share anywhere.

Shoot in new Vertical Capture and share right to social media—no need to rotate the camera or use special mounts. Capture in Wide Screen for playback on TVs and other wide-screen formats. Or, capture in Full Frame and decide later, in the Quik app, where you can crop, zoom, and even change digital lenses while editing.

10-Bit Colour

10-bit colour enables enhanced colour depth, smoother gradations and more realism. Pro creators can use GP-Log encoding with LUT to max out dynamic range before applying colour correction.

Emmy®-Winning Video Stabilization

HyperSmooth 6.0 continues to raise the bar for in-camera video stabilization, giving you impossibly smooth footage no matter how rough it gets. And it’s winning awards, too—an Emmy® Award for In-Camera Sensor and Software Stabilization.


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.

Built-In Horizon Lock

Horizon Lock is a built-in part of HyperSmooth 6.0, so it’s easier than ever to keep the horizon steady and consistent when your camera rotates a full 360°.

5+ Hours of Total Runtime

The cold-weather Enduro Rechargeable Battery is included, and combines with the powered grip to give you 35% longer runtimes of 4K 30 recording.

A Powered Grip Loaded With Features

Single-Hand Control
Integrated camera buttons for easy one-handed control.

Built-In Tripod
Flip out the tripod legs for a time-lapse, a group photo or any other stable shot.

Wireless Remote
Detach the grip and control your camera from up to 98 ft away.

Next-Level Production Value

Directional Audio

Prioritize audio in front of the camera or behind it, plus wind reduction so dialogue and commentary come through crystal clear. Plus you can record from the directional mic and the camera mic simultaneously for better quality audio.

New Bluetooth Audio Support

Now you can use your Apple AirPods, Bluetooth earbuds or other wireless mics during interviews or narration. You can also give voice commands remotely and hear alerts from your camera.

Light Mod Compact, Powerful Lighting

From sunrise to sunset, indoors or outdoors, the detachable LED light provides smooth, even lighting in a range of conditions. The included diffuser provides even more control.

New TimeCode Sync

Wirelessly synchronize multiple HERO12 Blacks via timecode in the Quik app. It’s perfect for when you want to capture an activity from multiple angles and then make precise, match-frame edits in post-production. Use matching timecode clips in Adobe Premiere Pro and other applications that support multi-camera editing for your next project.

Ready for More Expansion

Creator Edition features 2 cold-shoe mounts and a micro HDMI port so you can go even further with gear you already have. Got your own mic? There’s a 3.5mm mic port, too.

Easy Offloads + Instant Rough Cuts

Rapid Wireless Off-Loads

Reviewing footage is a breeze. Transfer everything from the SD card to the Quik app and view right on your phone.

Automatic Rough Cuts

The Quik app can put a rough cut together in seconds. Perfect for instructional content and simpler videos.

Unlimited Cloud Backup

Get unlimited cloud backup of your GoPro + imported footage at 100% quality. Auto Upload is also a huge time saver. Backup from the app, the camera or the web.
