All-in-One Creative Solution

The HERO12 Black Creator Edition combines HERO12 Black, the best GoPro camera ever made, with the mounts and accessories you need to tell your story right out of the box. It includes Volta (Battery Grip / Tripod / Remote), Media Mod and Light Mod, which seamlessly come together in a powerful creative solution that delivers stunning pro-quality footage and the versatility to capture a wide variety of photos and videos in an ultra-portable design that’s light enough to comfortably carry through an all-day production.

All-Day Capture + Enduro Battery

The HERO12 Black Creator Edition combines HERO12 Black’s advanced Enduro battery with the power of the Volta grip to give you a total of 6,620 mAh of power. Combined with HERO12 Black’s improved power management, you’ll get 35% more runtime for a total of over 5 hours of continuous 4K30 recording¹—enough to capture a full day of video clips. The 1,720-mAh Enduro also dramatically improves cold-weather performance so you can power through ski, snowboard and other winter shots.

High Dynamic Range Video + Photo

HERO12 Black takes its best-in-class image quality to the next level with HDR for both videos (5.3K and 4K) and photos. Great in environments with both shadows and bright light, HDR captures the subtle details of the scene that might typically blend into the darkness of shadows or disappear in the bright spots of your shot. The result is dynamic footage with true-to-life color and precision.

Unbelievable Image Quality

With 5.3K video that gives you 91% more resolution than 4K and an incredible 665% more than 1080p, HERO12 Black captures the action with crisp detail and cinematic image quality with High Dynamic Range (HDR) while also taking 27-MP photos. You can also grab stunning photos up to 24.7 MP of your favourite shots from your videos using the GoPro Quik app.

Up to 8x Slo-Mo

Everything is more amazing in slow motion. HERO12 Black lets you record the action at up to 8x slo-mo at resolutions up to 2.7K for playback at normal speed or in super-fluid slow motion to catch epic details that you’d never be able to see with the naked eye.

Emmy Award-Winning HyperSmooth 6.0 Stabilisation

HyperSmooth continues to set the bar for insanely smooth footage and has the hardware to back it up—a 2021 Emmy for In-Camera Sensor and Software Stabilisation. HERO12 Black makes it even better by maximising HyperSmooth AutoBoost performance with more stabilisation while still delivering less image cropping. Bike, skate, ski, chase your kids through the park or get amazing pet POV shots—even the shakiest footage comes out silky smooth.

360° Horizon Lock

Give your videos the look of professional productions by keeping the horizon steady, straight and smooth. HERO12 Black’s Linear + Horizon Lock digital lens keeps your footage steady even if your camera rotates a full 360° during capture.⁴ Combined with HyperSmooth, Horizon Lock gives you super smooth footage that looks perfectly straight when you want it to. You won’t need a gimbal or stabilization software for pro-quality results.

8-Bit, 10-Bit + Log Video

The HERO12 Black Creator Edition lets you choose between capturing 8-bit, 10-bit or Log video. Capable of displaying over 1 billion colours, 10-bit colour delivers enhanced colour depth, smoother gradations and more realism in your videos, while 8-bit offers smaller file sizes. Advanced users can use Log to get more detail in their footage while making necessary colour adjustments in post-production.

Timecode Sync

Advanced users with more than one HERO12 Black can sync them with the exact same timecode to make multi-camera editing a lot easier. It works with Final Cut Pro, Adobe Premier and other editing software to further streamline post-production.

Extra-Large Field of View

HERO12 Black’s powerful image sensor delivers the most expansive field of view ever on a HERO camera out of the box. It features extra-large 8:7 aspect ratio footage that gets more of the sky and horizon in each shot—giving you a huge canvas for your creativity. Simply use the GoPro Quik app to zoom in, crop and edit your shots while keeping the rich textures and sharpness of your footage. HERO12 Black takes 8:7 a step further with HyperView. This GoPro-exclusive digital lens takes 8:7 footage and serves it up as a wide-angle 16:9 shot. The result is ultra-immersive video that amps up action-oriented POV footage by capturing more of you and your surroundings.

Widescreen, Vertical + Full-Screen Capture

HERO12 Black’s Easy Controls make it easier than ever to get the exact shot you need. You can quickly swap between recording widescreen footage (16:9 aspect ratio) for full-screen playback on a TV or YouTube and vertical videos (9:16 aspect ratio) for watching on your phone or posting on social media. For maximum flexibility, the full-screen option records in the ultra-versatile 8:7 aspect ratio. This captures more of the scene and lets you crop and zoom in without losing the details of your shot. This makes it perfect for creating widescreen and tall shots for playback on your phone with the GoPro Quik app.

1-Handed Control + Remote

Integrated camera buttons on the grip give you easy one-handed control of your camera: power on and off, start and stop capture, and switching modes. You can even detach the camera from the grip and use the grip as a wireless remote to control your camera from up to 30 m away.⁶

Easily Expandable

The Media Mod gives you the option of expanding your HERO12 Black Creator Edition with additional gear to help you capture your story. It features a standard 3.5-mm mic port for adding your own external mic, HDMI-out for playback on external monitors, plus two cold-shoe mounts for lights, LCD screens or other accessories.

Powerful LED Lighting

The HERO12 Black Creator Edition’s Light Mod lets you brighten the action and illuminate your next adventure with wide, even light. It features four levels of brightness (up to 200 lumens), plus Overdrive and strobe modes, and also works as a handy standalone light that can be used with GoPro mounts.

Highlight Videos Automatically Sent to Your Phone⁴

Simply plug in your GoPro when connected to your home Wi-Fi. While it’s charging, your footage is automatically uploaded to the cloud and used to make a highlight video complete with beat-synced music and effects. Videos are automatically sent to your phone and ready to share.

Easy Transferring + Unlimited Cloud Backup⁴

Transferring photos and videos from your cloud-connected camera to your phone is simple and versatile, with your choice of effortless wireless upload via the Quik app or a lightning-fast wired connection via USB.⁵ There’s also unlimited cloud storage with hassle-free auto-upload. Just plug in your camera when connected to your home Wi-Fi and the camera does the rest.⁴ You can also use your SD card to transfer your content to a computer for backup to the cloud.

Enhanced Audio Capture

The HERO12 Black Creator Edition’s Media Mod features a standard 3.5-mm mic port that lets you plug in an external microphone for improved audio in your videos. It also has its own built-in directional mic for enhanced voice capture with reduced ambient noise. Set the mic to prioritise audio coming from in front of the camera to capture interviews and performances, behind the camera to add your commentary to everything happening in front of you or set it to treat front and rear audio equally. It also includes a removable foam mic cover that suppresses wind gusts up to 32 kph.

Bluetooth Audio Connectivity

Bluetooth audio lets you wirelessly connect the HERO12 Black Creator Edition to compatible devices. Vloggers will be able connect to a wireless external microphone for enhanced audio when narrating a scene or conducting interviews. By connecting to your wireless earbuds, your GoPro will be able to hear your voice commands in noisy settings or when it’s mounted out of earshot. You’ll also be able to hear camera alerts through your earbuds to confirm that it got the command and is doing what you want.

Built-in Tripod

In addition to making it easy to hold and aim your camera, the HERO12 Black Creator Edition’s Volta grip has built-in tripod legs that easily flip out any time you need to set it down to capture stationary and hands-free shots. Swivel mounting fingers even let you rotate and tilt the camera to find just the right capture angle.

Mounting Flexibility

Retractable mounting fingers make it easy to attach your HERO12 Black Creator Edition to GoPro backpack straps to capture a first-person view of your journeys. Creator Edition can also be used with other GoPro mounts and includes a 1/4-20 mount built into the grip base that gives you even more mounting options.

Front + Rear LCD Screens

Frame your shots perfectly with either the front or rear LCD screen. Use the large rear touch screen to capture the scene in front of you or turn your camera around and use the front screen for vlogging and self-capture. The front screen features smooth live preview with crisp detail, while the rear screen’s snappy touch controls make it easy to swap capture modes and adjust settings on the move

Night Effects Time Lapse + Photo

The HERO12 Black Creator Edition features 3 time lapse and photo modes that let you get creative after dark. Star Trails uses the Earth’s rotation and the stars to capture beautiful light trails across the night sky. Light Painting lets you create brilliant brush stroke effects with moving light. Vehicle Light Trails uses night-time traffic to record stunning light trail shots.

Easy or Pro Controls

HERO12 Black Creator Edition features two control options that let you choose from point-and-shoot simplicity or full camera control. With easy controls, just frame your shot and hit the Shutter button for amazing results. Easily switch between widescreen or mobile shots, capturing slo-mo footage and making other adjustments in just a few taps. The pro controls unlock the ability to fine-tune all modes, settings and features. Once you’ve dialled in the settings, you can save them as a preset. You can build a whole library of presets for cinematic shots, action footage, night capture or anything else you need.
