Introducing the new HERO12 Black Creator Edition

The HERO12 Black Creator Edition is an all-in-one content capturing powerhouse that makes vlogging, filmmaking and live streaming easier than ever. This complete system features pro-quality 5.3K video, HDR (High Dynamic Range) photo and video, Emmy®-winning HyperSmooth 6.0 video stabilization, new Bluetooth audio support, powerful LED lighting and over 5 hours of 4K30 recording per charge.

Creative Toolkit

The game-changing HERO12 Black with unbelievable image quality. A super-versatile hand grip with all-day charge and one-handed control. Tons of mounting options. Light. Sound. And unlimited cloud backup

Pro-Level 5.3K

Get best-in-class image quality with ultra-sharp 5.3K60, 4K120 and 2.7K240 resolutions. Plus you can grab 24.7MP photos from video.


Creator Edition can capture any type of content and is built to withstand the most challenging environments. It’s compact, easy-to-use, and designed to go anywhere.

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.

One shot. Share anywhere.

Shoot in new Vertical Capture and share right to social media—no need to rotate the camera or use special mounts. Capture in Wide Screen for playback on TVs and other wide-screen formats. Or, capture in Full Frame and decide later, in the Quik app, where you can crop, zoom, even change digital lenses while editing.

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.

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°.

5+ Hours of Total Runtime

The cold-weather Enduro Rechargeable Battery is included and combines with the powered grip to give you 35% longer runtimes of 4K30 recording.

A Powered Grip Loaded With Features

Single-Hand Control

Integrated camera buttons for easy one-handed control.

Built-In Tripod

Flip out the tripod legs for time-lapse, a group photo or any other stable shot.

Wireless Remote

Detach the grip and control your camera from up to 98 ft away.

Directional Audio

Prioritize audio in front of the camera or behind it, plus wind reduction so dialogue and commentary come through crystal clear. Plus you can record from the directional mic and the camera mic simultaneously for better-quality audio.

Compact, Powerful Lighting

From sunrise to sunset, indoors or outdoors, the detachable LED light provides smooth, even lighting in a range of conditions. The included diffuser provides even more control.

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.

Easy Offloads
