Despite the advent of increasingly powerful smartphone cameras, a GoPro Hero is still the shooter of choice for many people who want to document their action-packed lifestyles.
The GoPro Hero 7 offers high-end filming features and strong protection against elements in a small package that can attach to clothes, headwear, or even a drone.

The GoPro Hero 7 was released in 2018, is waterproof up to 10 meters and shoots 4K video at 60 frames-per-second. It can also capture HD video at 240fps. There are time-lapse and slo-mo modes, while 12-megapixel photos are possible with HDR. Through a companion smartphone, it is also possible that the footage can be livestreamed.
We were huge fans of the camera, both then and now, recording 4.5 out of a possible 5 stars. We admired superb image stabilization, superior image quality, waterproofing without a case, live streaming capabilities, vast range of mounts and accessories, and impressive video.
Our reviewer wrote: “This is only a relatively small step up from its predecessor, but the Hero 7 Black’s excellent video quality, stabilization, usability and range of mounts make it the best all-round action cam you can buy.”
Since then it has been successful with the GoPro Hero 8 and now the Hero 9, but the GoPro Hero 7 is an excellent action camera for your outdoor endeavors, whether it is in the air or under water.
