GoPro launches the HERO12 Black, introducing up to 2x longer runtimes through a revamped power management system.
Max Lens Mod 2.0: Widening the Horizon
One of the HERO12 Black’s remarkable enhancements is the Max Lens Mod 2.0 accessory, offering an industry-leading 177° field of view at 4K resolution and 60 frames per second. Max Lens Mod 2.0 provides three field-of-view options—Max Wide, Max SuperView, and the all-new Max HyperView. Leveraging HERO12 Black’s large 8:7 sensor, these wide-angle perspectives also offer 36% greater width for widescreen video and 48% greater height for vertical video compared to the standard lens. This feature is perfect for capturing immersive first-person perspectives during sports and outdoor adventures.
New User-Friendly Features and Professional Capabilities
HERO12 Black introduces features catering to both casual and professional users:
- Wireless Audio Support for Apple AirPods and More: Record audio directly to HERO12 Black from Bluetooth devices, including Apple AirPods, making it ideal for vlogging, scene narration, and issuing voice commands from a distance.
- GP-Log with LUTs: Offering more control and color grading in post-production with Look Up Tables (LUTs) for professional users.
- Wireless Timecode Sync: Sync an unlimited number of HERO12 Black cameras for multi-camera editing in software like Final Cut Pro and Adobe Premiere.
- Optimized Encoding: Provides smaller file sizes without compromising image quality.
- New Vertical Capture Mode: Captures vertical 9:16 aspect ratio video while the camera is mounted horizontally, perfect for sharing on vertically-oriented social channels.
