Reading Time: 3 minutes

GoPro now offers the new Hero 11 Black and Hero 11 Black mini on the GoPro website. Both the latest devices feature a tall sensor which makes it more interesting unlike the “Session” cameras of old.

There are no changes in the Hero 11 Black as far as the design goes and it uses the same colors as the 10. The once aspect of the hardware that has changed as we said before is a taller sensor. Additionally it also comes bundled with the Enduro battery, a standard which was previously sold as an accessory.

The new automatic highlight videos allow GoPro users to get back from their adventure and plug your camera in. The camera auto uploads the new footage and creates a spiffy video for you automatically. Interestingly this is not an exclusive Hero 11 feature as it is available on any camera back to the Hero 5 as long as you have a GoPro subscription.GoPro's new Hero 11 BlackThe company has made some hardware-specific updates such as the jump from 23 to 27-megapixel photos and the introduction of 10-bit color. The Hero 11 Black also offers a “Full Frame” shooting mode that captures everything on the 8:7 sensor in 5.3K. This allows you to punch out different videos at different aspect ratios – in full resolution.

The new sensor is an addition to the 360-degree horizon lock right up to 5.3K/30. It can act as a practical tool to avoid lop-sided video or for creative effect if your activity involves any kind of spinning, it helps keep the subject level and just spin the sky, for example.

Users can enjoy the “HyperView”, an entire sensor view squeezed into a 16:9 format. Besides the max resolution stays at 5K/60 or 4K120. It offers a great first person view shot as it really dials up the sense of action. GoPro's new Hero 11 Black MiniTime Lapse features camera settings that are popular among night owls: Vehicle Lights, Star Trails and Light Paint. These are popular topics amongst night owls and now you can create them with your GoPro from a preset.

GoPro is working with HyperSmooth, software that provides excellent stabilization footage. This fifth generation has two new menu sections: Pro and Easy modes. Pro mode offers a variety of predefined settings for any situation, while Easy Mode offers one click settings to make things easy. The Mini model comes without the video display, which instead has a simple LCD for selecting settings and buttons for controlling the camera during recording. The Mini features two sets of built-in mounting fingers, which makes it more versatile and is powered by a non-removable Enduro battery.

GoPro’s current range of prices with a subscription gives an innovative way to save money on expensive camera hardware. The Hero 11 Black is priced between $399/$500 while the Hero 11 Black Mini comes in at $300/$400. The flagship goes on sale today while the Mini will ship starting October 25.
