In a groundbreaking move, GoPro has unveiled its latest offering – the HERO12 Black camera. Priced at INR 45,000, this flagship device takes the remarkable performance of its predecessor to new heights by presenting a plethora of cutting-edge features designed for both professional and casual users.
A major highlight of the HERO12 Black is its revamped power management system, which offers up to double the battery life compared to earlier models. This enables users to record more memorable moments without the need for constant recharging.
The HERO12 Black also boasts of impressive high dynamic range (HDR) video capabilities in top-tier 5.3K and 4K resolutions. Coupled with the advanced HyperSmooth 6.0 video stabilization, it guarantees smooth, steady footage even in the most dynamic scenarios.
Among the exciting new features of the HERO12 Black is the Max Lens Mod 2.0 accessory. This innovative add-on delivers a stunning 177° field of view at an impressive 4K resolution and 60 frames per second. The Max Lens Mod 2.0 provides three field-of-view options: Max Wide, Max SuperView, and the brand-new Max HyperView, offering an unprecedented immersive experience. It’s an ideal tool for recording first-person views of exhilarating activities or creating mesmerizing visuals in natural environments.
GoPro CEO and Founder Nicholas Woodman believes, “The HERO12 Black raises the bar for immersive life-capture. Our latest flagship camera is a testament to GoPro’s 21 years of expertise and our dedication to enabling users to capture and share their life’s moments in vibrant detail.”
But the upgrades don’t end there. The HERO12 Black rolls out several pro-level features that will appeal to both professional videographers and casual users:
Wireless audio support: Users can connect their Apple AirPods or other Bluetooth audio devices to boost their vlogging, scene narration, and voice command capabilities.
