by planetMitchLeave a Comment

The new GoPro HERO7 Black looks like a great set of features that just might save GoPro from the death spiral it has been on.

The feature set is actually very interesting to me. Why? Well gee, the biggest problem I've ever had is fooling with those tiny menus LOL (granted I haven't had a GoPro since like version 3? So yea, i'm behind). So being able to talk to it and make life happen is a great thing.

The stabilization and stills mode are impressive. And the ability to do live streaming is also a big bonus.

So what do you think? Have a look at all these differing opinions!
