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 HERO12s via timecode, advanced color controls, and more. HERO12 wraps all of this into GoPro’s legendary waterproof, ultra-rugged design to ensure you get the shot, no matter the environment.
5.3K delivers best-in-class image quality with 91% more resolution than 4K. HERO12 Black also captures in 4K, 2.7K and 1080p video resolutions.
Get 4x slo-mo—that’s 120 frames per second—at a ridiculously high 4K resolution. You can also ramp up the slo-mo to 8x—240 frames per second—at 2.7K.
Waterproof to 33 feet and built to take a beating.
Hydrophobic lens sheds water to keep your shots crystal clear when you’re in the water.
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, HERO12 Black automatically ensures you get the widest shots possible while using video stabilization depending on your speed and movement in the scene.
Horizon Lock is a built-in part of HyperSmooth 6.0, so it’s easier than ever to keep the horizon level when your camera rotates a full 360°.
Get an expansive field of view that’s 36% wider than HERO12 Black alone for amazing views of your bike or skis, and it makes the video look faster and more immersive—all in stunning 4K60.
4K60 Vertical Capture dramatically expands your field of view by up to 48%5 without additional mounts or needing to rotate the camera for immersive POV that’s ready for social media.
New to Max Lens Mod 2.0, Max HyperView delivers a 177° field of view—that’s the widest view available in a GoPro, even compared to GoPro MAX shooting in single-lens mode—in stunning 4K60.
Thanks to its improved power management, HERO12 Black delivers 2x longer continuous recording at 5.3K60 (70 minutes), plus over 1.5 hours at 5.3K30 and over 2.5 hours of continuous recording at 1080p30.²
HDR (High Dynamic Range) Video delivers greater detail and color in highlights and is now available in 5.3K and 4K60.
With a tap, switch between Wide Screen or new Vertical Capture depending on whether you’re shooting for traditional wide-screen playback or social media. Or capture in Full Frame and decide later in the Quik app for maximum versatility.
HyperView and SuperView—both GoPro exclusive digital lenses—enable ultra wide 16:9 capture, standard in HERO12 Black. For even wider shots, consider the new Max Lens Mod 2.0 accessory (see above).
The large image sensor also lets you capture a wide 156° field of view in a full-frame 8:7 aspect ratio, in 5.3K and 4K.
10-bit color enables enhanced color depth, smoother gradations and more realism. And pro creators can use GP-Log encoding with LUT to max out dynamic range before applying color correction.
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.
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.
Just point and shoot for frame-worthy photos. And you can grab high-res, ready-to-share photos right from video.
