Ultra Durable +

Waterproof to 33 feet and built to take a beating.

Water-Repelling Lens Cover

Hydrophobic lens sheds water to keep your shots crystal clear when you’re in the water.

Video Stabilization

HyperSmooth 6.0 continues to raise the bar for in-camera video stabilization, giving you impossibly smooth footage no matter how rough it gets. And it’s winning awards, too—an Emmy® Award for In-Camera Sensor and Software Stabilization.


With HyperSmooth 6.0, HERO12 Black automatically ensures you get the widest shots possible while using video stabilization depending on your speed and movement in the scene.

Built-In Horizon Lock

Horizon Lock is a built-in part of HyperSmooth 6.0, so it’s easier than ever to keep the horizon level when your camera rotates a full 360°.

The Must-Have Upgrade for Ultimate POV

New Max Lens
Mod 2.0

Get the widest, tallest and most thrilling POV shots possible—including an ultra wide, industry-leading 177° field of view—all in 4K60. And Max HyperSmooth provides unbreakable video stabilization in all video modes. This is the perfect upgrade for mountain biking, skiing and other action sports.

Ultra Wide Angles in 4K

Ultra Wide Angles in 4K

Get an expansive field of view that’s 36% wider than HERO12 Black alone for amazing views of your bike or skis, and it makes the video look faster and more immersive—all in stunning 4K60.

Vertical Capture for Social Media icon

Vertical Capture for Social Media

4K60 Vertical Capture dramatically expands your field of view by up to 48% without additional mounts or needing to rotate the camera for immersive POV that’s ready for social media.

Now with longer runtimes.

Thanks to its improved power management, HERO12 Black delivers 2x longer continuous recording at 5.3K60 (70 minutes), plus over 1.5 hours at 5.3K30 and over 2.5 hours of continuous recording at 1080p30.

Cold-Weather Enduro Battery Included

Using advanced technology, the long-lasting Enduro Rechargeable Battery boosts performance in cold temperatures over previous GoPro cameras and batteries.

All-New HDR Video

HDR (High Dynamic Range) Video delivers greater detail and color in highlights and is now available in 5.3K and 4K60.

Larger Image Sensor
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.

156° Field of View in Full 8:7

The large image sensor also lets you capture a wide 156° field of view in a full-frame 8:7 aspect ratio, in 5.3K and 4K.

Imaging + Sound

10-Bit Color

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.

New TimeCode Sync

Wirelessly synchronize multiple HERO12 Blacks via timecode in the Quik app. It’s perfect for when you want to capture an activity from multiple angles and then make precise, match-frame edits in post-production. Use matching timecode clips in Adobe Premiere Pro and other applications that support multi-camera editing for your next project.

New Bluetooth Audio Support

Now you can use your Apple AirPods, Bluetooth earbuds or other wireless mics during interviews or narration. You can also give voice commands remotely and hear alerts from your camera.

Stunning 27MP Photos + 24.7MP Frame Grabs

Just point and shoot for frame-worthy photos. And you can grab high-res, ready-to-share photos right from video.

Dual LCD Screens

Get smooth, snappy playback on the super responsive rear touch screen, and flip to the front screen to frame selfies.
