Overview

Our take on the GoPro HERO7 Silver

Shoot, tag and share 4K video

The GoPro HERO7 Silver is rugged and shoots beautiful photos and video — we expect nothing less from a GoPro. It's waterproof down to 33 feet without an additional housing, and records 4K video at 30 frames per second.

It has built-in GPS, so you can tag photos and video with telemetry data, then wirelessly upload and share with friends via social media.

Convenient voice control

"GoPro, take a picture." That's all you have to say to get this camera to spring into action. Voice control enhances the HERO7's legacy as a rugged, easy-to-use, all-around action cam. Just imagine — press the large button on top of the camera to start recording your adventure, and then you won't have to touch it again. Just tell the camera what to do, and it will be done. 

Fun shooting modes

The HERO7 Silver has 2x slow motion built in, so you can create a fun effect with action footage. You can also shoot time-lapse video at half-second intervals, or bursts of still photos at up to 15 frames per second. If you just want a selfie of you with the whole gang in front of a beautiful landscape, use the built-in timer to give yourself time to get in the picture.

Features

Overview: The GoPro HERO7 Silver (CHDHC-601) is an ultra-compact digital action camera, designed to take 4K and Full HD videos and up to 10-megapixel still photos in extreme situations. The HERO7 Silver is waterproof up to 33 feet (10 meters). The camera comes with The Frame (standard housing for the HERO action cameras), plus flat and curved surface mounts. A full line of GoPro accessories allow you to mount the camera virtually anywhere.

2" LCD Touch Display: The camera has a 2" LCD touch display on the back for framing and viewing your videos and still images. Numerous touch gestures (tap, swipe, press/hold, etc.) let you navigate through the menus.

Optics: The HERO7 Silver has a fixed focal length, ultra wide angle glass lens for sharp image quality.

Touch Zoom: Touch Zoom helps you capture a closer view of the action. Touching the lower right corner of the screen brings up a slider control which lets you adjust the zoom, even while you're recording. Slide up to zoom in; slide down to zoom out. The zoom level remains locked until you readjust it, switch capture modes, or power off the camera.

Camera Orientation: You can set the camera to a right-side up or upside-down orientation so you can get the perfect angle for your video or still images. The Auto setting (Auto Image Rotation) automatically selects Up or Down orientation, based on the orientation of the camera when recording begins.

GPS: The HERO7 Silver is equipped with built-in GPS that allows you to capture location information and embed the data into your videos and photos. The GPS data helps you view the locations where your footage was recorded on a map.

Connections: The HERO7 Silver has a USB-C port for connecting the camera to a computer, or for charging the battery, via the supplied USB cable.

Voice Control: You can control the HERO7 Silver with your voice using specific commands. The voice commands allow you to perform the following: Start or Stop capturing video, add a HiLight Tag, capture single or burst photos, start or stop time lapse, power on or power off the camera, and change the camera mode (to video, photo, burst, or time lapse).

Video Resolution: The HERO7 Silver is capable of recording 4K and Full HD video in MPEG-4 H.264 format. The maximum video bit rate is 60 Mb/s (4K). The camera records video at 2160p (3840 x 2160) and 1440p (1920 x 1440) in 4:3 aspect ratio. If desired, you can crop your Full HD videos to 1080p using the GoPro app. The following video resolution options are available:

Video Resolution Frame Rates
(NTSC/PAL)
Screen Resolution Aspect Ratio
4K (2160p)
30/25, 24/24 3840 x 2160 16:9
Full HD (1440p) 60/50, 30/25 1920 x 1440 4:3

Time Lapse Video: Shooting in Time Lapse Video, the camera captures a single frame every 0.5 seconds to form a video. This compresses an event into a video you can watch in a fraction of the time. When played back at regular speed, the action moves 15x faster than normal. In other words, 15 minutes of shooting will play back in approximately 20 seconds. Time Lapse Video is captured in 4K without audio.

Slow Motion Video: The HERO7 Silver lets you capture Slow Motion video. Slow Motion video is captured at 60 frames per second, and played back at 2x slow motion. You can also play back videos recorded in Slo-Mo mode in Normal Speed, if desired. If 4K is on, the camera will switch it off when you switch to Slow Motion recording.

Audio: The camera records the audio with two built-in mono microphones. The camera processes the audio from the two microphones to reduce noise, giving you the best possible sound for your action videos.

Still Images with WDR: The HERO7 Silver can take still images at 10MP resolution (3648 x 2736) and 4:3 aspect ratio. The camera features WDR (wide dynamic range) to pick up greater detail in shadowed areas, while making sure the bright areas are not overexposed. Still images can be recorded in these capture modes:

  • Photo: Photos are captured one at a time, or continuously (up to 30 photos at 4 frames per second).
  • Burst: In Burst mode, you can capture 15 photos in 1 second to capture fast-moving activities.

HiLight Tagging: The HERO7 Silver lets you mark specific moments in your video during recording or playback with HiLight Tags, making the moments easier to locate. Tags can be added using the camera or the GoPro App. During playback, the tags are visible in the GoPro App or GoPro software.

Storage: The HERO7 Silver has a slot for inserting a microSD memory card (up to 128 GB). You should use microSD cards with a Class 10 or UHS-I rating for best performance. No memory is included with the camera.

Wi-Fi + Bluetooth: The camera features built-in 5 GHz Wi-Fi, as well as Bluetooth wireless technology, to allow you to wirelessly connect to your smartphone or tablet via the GoPro App. If your device or region does not support 5 GHz Wi-Fi, you can switch the Wi-Fi band to 2.4 GHz.

GoPro App: GoPro previously had more than one main app for controlling your camera and downloading and editing your footage. Now you can do it all in the new GoPro app (formerly known as Capture). Not only can you organize and view your photos and videos on your mobile device, the GoPro app will automatically transform them into professional-looking videos. The QuikStories feature automatically copies videos and photos from your most recent session from your camera to your mobile device, and turns them into an edited video, complete with music and special effects. This QuikStory can then be saved, edited, or deleted from your phone if you don't like it. The app also allows you to immediately post your favorite photos and videos directly to your favorite social media sites, including Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram. The GoPro app lets you control the HERO7 Silver (or other GoPro camera) from your mobile device, including framing the shot with a live preview, or adjusting the settings. The app is compatible with Apple mobile devices running iOS 10.0 or later, as well as Android devices running version 5.0 and up.

Battery: The HERO7 Silver is powered by a built-in 1220mAh Lithium-Ion rechargeable battery. The battery can be charged by connecting the camera to a computer or other USB charging adapter (5V 1A) using the supplied USB-C cable. Charging a fully-depleted battery takes approximately 2 hours. With the optional GoPro Supercharger, you can quick charge the battery 20-70% faster. With a fully charged battery, the estimated battery life is as follows:

Video Mode Battery Life (minutes)
4K30 106
1440p60 (slo-mo on) 107
1440P30 146

Specifications:

  • Dimensions: Width: 2.446", Height: 1.786", Depth: 1.103"

  • Weight: 3.4 ounces (camera only); 5.1 ounces with the Frame and buckle

Mounting Options

The Frame: The HERO7 Silver comes with The Frame, a standard housing for this camera. The Frame is attached to a GoPro quick-release buckle that lets you adjust the tilt of the camera. The rubber locking plug provides additional security.

Mounting Bases: The package includes a curved-surface and a flat-surface mount, each with industrial-grade adhesive, for mounting the camera to a helmet, vehicle, or other smooth surface. Additional curved and flat mounts are available for purchase.

Optional Mounts: GoPro offers numerous mounts for the HERO7 Silver camera, including a head strap and chest harness. Other mounts can attach the camera to a bicycle seat post or handlebar, a roll bar, helmet, tripod, surfboard, or even your dog. For underwater shooting, the Super Suit Dive Housing will protect your camera down to nearly 200 feet.
