GoPro HERO12 Black
A Boost in Battery Life and Stability
While the GoPro HERO12 Black features some similar hardware to its predecessor—a 27MP image sensor capable of 53K60 video recording—its improved battery life, HyperSmooth 6.0 technology, and expanded Bluetooth wireless further its capabilities. The image sensor can capture 27MP RAW still photos as well as 5.3K60, 4K120, and 2.7K240 video with ease. HyperSmooth 6.0 digital image stabilization with AutoBoost ensures your footage remains high-quality while reducing image cropping. The HERO12 also has improved power management to continuously record video 2x faster than previous models.
High-Quality HDR Images
Enabled HDR for both video (5.3K and 4K) and photo modes to render more detail in your shadows and highlights. Capture up to 5.3K60 video or up to 27MP RAW photos with crisp details and cinematic image quality. You can even grab 24.7MP frames from your videos using the Quik app. Record 2.7K video at a 240 frame rate for playback at 8x slow motion.
HyperSmooth 6.0 with AutoBoost
Upgraded HyperSmooth 6.0 features AutoBoost performance that reduces image cropping, which might otherwise compromise your framing. 360° Horizon Lock keeps your footage steady and level, even if your camera rotates completely.
Bluetooth Audio Connectivity
Connect the HERO12 to compatible Bluetooth devices like a wireless microphone to record improved audio. You can even connect wireless headphones to either monitor your recorded audio or facilitate voice commands in noisy settings. Hear camera alerts through your headphones to confirm the HERO12 received the command.

New Interval Tools
Set the interval photo tool to capture all the action at fixed intervals while you practice your tennis swing or take shots at the goal. HingSight captures up to 30s of footage before you record, so even if you press the shutter too late, you don't miss a shot. Scheduled Capture turns the GoPro on and captures a shot up to 24 hours in advance for easy photo time-lapses. Duration Capture records video clips from 15 seconds to 3 hours long.
