GoPro has recently introduced its latest camera model, the Hero 12 Black. One of the key features of this new camera is its redesigned power management system, which allows for longer runtimes, up to 2 times longer than before. This translates to 70 minutes of recording time for 5.3K60 resolution, 95 minutes for 5.3K30, and 155 minutes for 1080p30.
In terms of maximum resolution, the Hero 12 Black supports shooting in 5.3K HDR, with the ability to capture up to 8 times slow motion at 2.7K resolution. It also allows for video recording from Bluetooth devices, such as AirPods or wireless microphones.
Another important addition is the Max Lens Mod 2.0 accessory, which increases the field of view to 177 degrees. This wide-angle perspective offers a 36% increase in horizontal field of view and a 48% increase in vertical field of view compared to the standard lens of the Hero 12.
The GoPro Hero 12 Black is available for purchase at $399.99, while the Max Lens Mod 2.0 is priced at $99.99. Both can be ordered directly through the website starting today.
