Almost a year after the GoPro Hero 10 was announced, we get the next major action cameras from the manufacturer – the GoPro Hero 11 and Hero 11 Mini. The design on the Hero 11 has been carried over from last year’s model down to the dimensions and black color. The new Hero 11 Mini model gets the same specs as the bigger model in a slimmer form factor (133 grams) but ditches the two LCD screens. You’re left with the GoPro Quik app for most controls.
The 1/1.9-inch-sized camera sensor is shared across the new 11 series and has now bumped up to 27MP resolution. It also records full 10-bit colors. For videos, you can shoot up to 5.3K resolution at 60fps or 4K at 120fps. The new FullFrame shooting mode allows users to capture 8:7 content while the HyperView mode lets you record in traditional 16:9 aspects.
Vehicle lights, star trails, and light color are other new video modes for low-light situations. GoPro’s signature HyperSmooth software stabilization now brings an AutoBoost feature that handles even the shakiest videos. Auto Highlight Videos compiles your most recent videos in a well-organized way. The feature is also available to owners of older GoPro cameras through GoPro’s subscription service.
The GoPro Hero 11 comes with an Enduro battery as standard which was an optional accessory on the 10th generation Hero. The Hero 11 box contents also include a carrying case, adhesive mounts, mounting strap with thumb screw, 32GB Sandisk Extreme SD card, and a USB-C cable. The camera is waterproof up to 10 meters.
The GoPro Hero 11 Black starts at $399 without a GoPro subscription, while the regular price is $500. Hero 11 Mini is $300/$400 respectively. Sales for the Hero 11 Black began today from the company’s website, with the mini model expected to join it on October 25.
