GoPro HERO7 White
When it comes to street photography, having the Hero7’s Super Photo mode is a clutch. Super Photo mode tactfully applies HDR, local tone mapping, or noise reduction to make your shots look incredible. With the touch zoom available at your fingertips now, you don’t have to just go wide. It gives you the option to pinch in and zoom on your subject. The touch screen itself is improved and fluid. GoPro now shoots in burst mode 12MP at 30 frames per second, so capturing moments in the city becomes ten times easier. Plus with the new cloud features (and a GoPro subscription), you don’t even have to compromise on storage space now.
We wanted to see how good the slow-motion capabilities were and there wasn’t any let down there either. While still maintaining a frame rate of 1080p240, you can savor all of that slow-motion goodness. There were a couple of shots that we set up and played back, and they were crispy, and the whole shot only inspires you to try out other scenarios.
If you’re into live streaming, the GoPro is now capable of that as well. On top of posting instantaneously to IG Stories or Facebook, you can record vertical videos, as well. With the popularity of IG Stories and Facebook Live, I feel this is a very thoughtful inclusion to the series. Since the GoPro is now easily connected to social media, this is a huge step for the amateur or professional creative who wants to make high-quality imagery and video.
I feel it’s fair to say that this new GoPro is more than capable to operate as a street photographer’s discreet secret weapon. On top of that, it still stays true to all of the features it’s known for and expands on those as well.
