Lets You Do More
Shoot Wide Screen, Vertical or Full Frame
With a tap, switch between Wide Screen or new Vertical Capture depending on whether you’re shooting for traditional wide-screen playback or social media. Or capture in Full Frame and decide later in the Quik app for maximum versatility.
Ultra Wide-Angle Digital Lenses
HyperView and SuperView—both GoPro exclusive digital lenses—enable ultra wide 16:9 capture, standard in HERO12 Black. For even wider shots, consider the new Max Lens Mod 2.0 accessory (see above).

Imaging + Sound
10-bit color enables enhanced color depth, smoother gradations and more realism. And pro creators can use GP-Log encoding with LUT to max out dynamic range before applying color correction.
