    Hero 10 - One Hit and One Miss - Water Shedding Lens and Reduced Recording Time

    I've not tested that but I'm sure it makes a bit of a difference. Mine were set to go dark after five minutes. I did test GPS on versus off on the 10 and there was about a 6 minute difference. Bill

    Hero 10 - One Hit and One Miss - Water Shedding Lens and Reduced Recording Time

    The new GoPro Hero 10 boasts a lens coating that helps to shed water droplets. As someone who often shoots in the rain, I appreciated this improvement. Recently, to try it out, I noticed on radar that a few showers were approaching. I set up the H10 in a time-lapse video mode. I then let the...

    who is buying a 10?

    I received my Hero 10 on the 18th. Only one full morning of use but it's been excellent. Upgraded from an 8. However, I also have a 9 and probably would not upgrade from it except I occasionally use two cameras. From your 7 I'd say it's a worthwhile upgrade.

    Yes I was glad to see support for the external mic adapter. I have one and it's been useless with the 9 until now. Opens up more possibility's for third party cases.

    Hero 9 Sunset Time-Lapse

    Time-lapse video mode. 2 second interval. ISO 100 Min/Max. 5500 White Balance. Not much, if any difference than those shot with my H8. However, the H9's ability to start/stop automatically is a big deal to me.

    GoPro HERO9 Black: Here's what you need to know

    I've had my 9 for a couple of weeks now. I do quite a few time-lapse captures. For me the big gain is the ability to pre-schedule the start time and the duration of the capture. So far it has worked flawlessly. Nothing worth posting. But it's a big deal for me for my time-lapse sessions. Bill

    GoPro Hero 9 leaks

    A bit excited. I've bought each "Black" iteration from the 3 to the 8. Last rumor that I read was a price increase from previous years. Should not have long to wait.
