Pro skimboarder and wakesurfer, I am constantly pushing the limits of what is possible. It is essential to have a compact camera that can capture multiple perspectives in weird environments.
Since 2012 when I got my first GoPro, these cameras have been a crucial tool in capturing my adventures. GoPro has been an important unlock for me. It can produce high-quality photos and videos. Its portability and size are a game changer. I have traveled all over the globe with my GoPro and was able to participate in the first ever GoPro Million Dollar Challenge. As you can see, I love the company. I had high expectations when I received the GoPro Hero10.
Adorama challenged my to test the HERO10. I can safely say that I succeeded in this mission. I had only a few days to capture as much dynamic material as possible. To test the slow motion capabilities and ride in perfect barrels, I drove to Kelly Slater Surf Ranch in California.
This camera has seen a lot of improvements by GoPro. The video quality is one of the most exciting features. There are a variety of slow motion options that are equally important, including 5.3K 60fps (or 4K 120fps), 2.7K 360fps (or 2.7K 240fps). When I’m skiing, surfing or skateboarding, I do dynamic movements such as turns and airs. It is crucial for me to be able slow down footage. Explosive movements can be very fast and last only a second. However, I can slow down footage by 2.7K 240fps to get it to 8 seconds. This allows me to retain maximum quality while also reducing the time between each second. 4K 120fps is my favourite setting. I know everyone will be excited about it. It is now a must-have for me to be able to shoot 4K video and produce smooth slow motion footage.
It’s also worth mentioning the 5.3K 60fps. This is the best quality footage I’ve ever seen on an action camera, even though it was slow-motion. It is possible to pause any part of my footage and take a 15.8MP still image that looks real. These settings and HyperSmooth® 4.0 make for some of the smoothest footage.
The HERO10 was beyond my expectations. It is a great camera bag addition. It doesn’t really matter if you are primarily capturing action sports, vlogging or first-person views (FPV). Look no further if you are looking for an action camera that can do all of your content creation. GoPro HERO10 is the perfect choice.
Adorama has the GoPro Hero10 for $4999.99
