Compared to the HERO9, here’s what’s new. • Double the frame rates for videos, and ultra-sharp resolution with improved low light performance and 3D Noise reduction, meaning videos shot during low light situations will have less video noise and more details from its more advanced local tone mapping. • Faster gliding through the back touch screen menu, responsive touch interface, and the front LCD display previews are smoother. • Next generation in-camera electronic stabilization, HyperSmooth 4.0, can be used for its high-performance settings: 5.3K60, 4K60, and 2.7K120. Horizon leveling’s tilt limit also increased to 45 degrees when shooting in specific camera modes. • A new lens cover that is more scratch resistant, less ghosting, hydrophobic and water shedding, and removable. • Webcam Mode and Live Streaming in higher resolution (1080p) and image quality using HyperSmooth 4.0 video stabilization. • Up to 30% quicker offloads via Wi-Fi transfers but 50% faster than this if using the new wired offload option.
