GoPro HERO12 Black
Rugged + Waterproof to 33ft (10m)
Completely waterproof and as tough as ever, HERO12 Black is ready to capture the fun on any adventure. Its legendary durability can take a beating and keep going, whether you’re ripping through mud, snow or water (down to 33ft/10m). A water-repelling lens cover even helps eliminate lens flare and other artifacts to make your photos and videos even more stunning.
Up to 8x Slo-Mo
Everything is more awesome in slow motion. HERO12 Black lets you record the action at up to 8x slo-mo at resolutions up to 2.7K for playback at normal speed or in super fluid slow motion to catch epic details that you’d never be able to see with the naked eye.
2x Longer Runtime
HERO12 Black’s dramatically improved battery efficiency combines with the included 1720mAh Enduro battery to deliver a huge 2x increase in 5.3K60 video runtime on each charge. You’ll get 70 minutes of continuous recording at 5.3K60 (our highest setting), plus over 1.5 hours at 5.3K30 and over 2.5 hours of continuous recording at 1080p30.6 Using advanced technology, Enduro also boosts performance in cold temperatures over previous GoPro cameras and batteries.
Emmy Award-Winning HyperSmooth 6.0 Stabilization
HyperSmooth continues to set the bar for insanely smooth footage and has the hardware to back it up—a 2021 Emmy® for In-Camera Sensor and Software Stabilization. HERO12 Black makes it even better by maximizing HyperSmooth AutoBoost performance with more stabilization while still delivering less image cropping. Bike, skate, ski, chase your kids through the park or get awesome pet POV shots—even the shakiest footage comes out silky smooth.
High Dynamic Range Video + Photo
HERO12 Black takes its best-in-class image quality to the next level with HDR for both videos (5.3K and 4K) and photos. Great in environments with both shadows and bright light, HDR captures the subtle details of the scene that might typically blend into the darkness of shadows or disappear in the bright spots of your shot. The result is dynamic footage with true-to-life color and precision.
360° Horizon Lock
Give your videos the look of professional productions by keeping the horizon steady, straight and smooth. HERO12 Black’s Linear + Horizon Lock digital lens keeps your footage steady even if your camera rotates a full 360° during capture.4 Combined with HyperSmooth, Horizon Lock gives you super smooth footage that looks perfectly straight when you want it to. You won’t need a gimbal or stabilization software for pro-quality results.
Unbelievable Image Quality
With 5.3K video that gives you 91% more resolution than 4K and an incredible 665% more than 1080p, HERO12 Black captures the action with crisp detail and cinematic image quality with High Dynamic Range (HDR) while also taking 27MP photos. You can also grab stunning photos up to 24.7MP of your favorite shots from your videos using the GoPro Quik app.
Extra-Large Field of View
HERO12 Black’s powerful image sensor delivers the most expansive field of view ever on a HERO camera out of the box. It features extra-large 8:7 aspect ratio footage that gets more of the sky and horizon in each shot—giving you a huge canvas for your creativity. Simply use the GoPro Quik app to zoom in, crop and edit your shots while keeping the rich textures and sharpness of your footage. HERO12 Black takes 8:7 a step further with HyperView. This GoPro-exclusive digital lens takes 8:7 footage and serves it up as a wide-angle 16:9 shot. The result is ultra-immersive video that amps up action-oriented POV footage by capturing more of you and your surroundings.
Front + Rear LCD Screens
Frame your shots perfectly with either the front or rear LCD screen. Use the large rear touch screen to capture the scene in front of you, or turn your camera around and use the front screen for vlogging and self-capture. The front screen features smooth live preview with crisp detail, while the rear screen’s snappy touch controls make it easy to swap capture modes and adjust settings.
Webcam + Live Streaming
Use the HERO12 Black as an ultra versatile webcam, or live stream your next activity as you vlog with buttery HyperSmooth video stabilization and sharp resolution.
