GoPro recently launched the HERO7 Black from their all-new product lineup. The flagship device features the HyperSmooth feature, which is an improved function for video stabilization capabilities.

Hypersmooth eases the task of capturing professional-looking, gimbal-like stabilized video without the expense or hassle or a motorized gimbal. It also works underwater and in high-shock and wind situations. GoPro HERO7 Black also features TimeWarp Video, which applies a high-speed, ‘magic-carpet-ride’ effect to your videos. It transforms longer experiences into short, flowing videos that are compelling to watch and easy to share.
