Content creators who use drones to capture amazing video now have a new option when it comes to choosing a camera for their FPV (First Person View) drone and it comes from a familiar name – GoPro.
You may remember GoPro launched the Karma drone system a few years back that was eventually discontinued, but the Hero10 Black Bones is instead a lightweight camera that shares many of the Hero 10 Black technology that fits onto existing FPV drone models.
The compact design takes weight-saving to the max and the GoPro Black Bones tips the scales at just 54g and fact fans will be interested to hear that this is, in fact, the lightest GoPro ever and the brand says the Back Bones is ‘Housed in a lightweight, well-ventilated enclosure, HERO10 Black Bones delivers the best image quality and stabilisation per gram of weight.’
High quality video is central to the Hero10 Black Bones and this lightweight camera can capture a variety of movie quality and frame rate options. Starting at the highest quality option, the camera can shoot cinematic 5K 4:3 video at 30 frames per second along with 4K 4:3 video at 60 frames per second. Fans of slow motion footage will be pleased to hear the Hero10 Black Bones can even shoot 2.7K 4:3 video at a super-slow 120 frames per second.
There are multiple ways to control the Hero10 Black Bones; users can take advantage of two physical buttons on the camera, the Quik App, GoPro Labs QR Codes, GoPro’s The Remote, or a drone’s transmitter. What’s more, the Black Bones includes a replaceable lens cover so, in the event of a crash, the lens cover can be swapped out. The lens is also compatible with third party HERO9 Black and HERO10 Black ND filters for reducing camera shutter speed to cinematic levels.
Lastly, the Hero10 Black Bones includes GoPro’s ‘HyperSmooth’ technology to deliver ultra-smooth footage and is easy to set-up on your FPV drone with a single screw boss and takes advantage of a standard FPV industry connector.
