Leaked GoPro Hero 7 promises to be as stable as a gimbal

Will come in Black, Silver, and White

Published

The renaissance of smartphones upended the concurrent rise of action cameras. Huge advancements in phone photography eliminated the need for external cameras.

Threatened by obsolescence, camera makers are struggling to catch up. Despite the danger, the journey continues. For example, GoPro is rearing up to launch a new generation of its patented cameras. Perhaps soon, the camera company will launch the upcoming GoPro Hero 7.

Recently, leaked store images have displayed the new camera in all its gory detail. While the image itself doesn’t give too much away, the scant details hint that GoPro is going in an all-new direction.

Unlike previous iterations, the GoPro Hero 7 will explicitly focus on image stabilization. In fact, the leaked camera promises to outdate the modern-day gimbal.

The feature, if implemented, represents a big step-up for GoPro. Previously, the camera series constantly fell victim to shaky camera situations brought by the intense action scenes it promises to shoot. The company tried to solve this problem by releasing a gimbal grip of their own — the Karma Grip.

According to the original source (which was sadly deleted at the time of this writing), the new cameras will reduce shake even without an external grip — including GoPro’s own.

Unlike other generations, the GoPro Hero 7 will apparently launch in three separate variants — Black, Silver, and White. As always, the Black will take up the company’s premium line. It will have the traditional front-facing display.

Meanwhile, both the Silver and the White will not have front displays. Unfortunately, the images do not reveal whether they will get a rear screen.

In other news, the series will retain their waterproof nature. All three can submerge depths of up to 33 feet or (10 meters).

Sadly, the leak does not reveal when the GoPro Hero 7 will launch. However, rumors point to a launch happening soon.
