If you are also wondering the differences between the most popular action cameras available today, then in this article you’ll find the answer to your questions.

Maar zonder verder oponthoud, laten we beginnen!


Let’s start with a general overview of the three cameras:

GoPro Hero 10 Zwart

Hero 10 Zwart

Launched on September 16, 2021, the newest gadget by the brand – the GoPro Hero 10 Zwart strives to eliminate two of the biggest annoyances of its predecessor – the GoPro Hero 9 Black. One, Hero 9 always felt a bit sluggish when it came to its speed. Two, its low light performance was not up to the mark. The GoPro 10 Black addresses both of these pain points in a superb way!

Dankzij de krachtige GP-2-processor, the overall performance of the action camera is significantly better than Hero 9. Upon testing it in low light, we felt that the camera performs noticeably better here too. Hero 10 bumps up photo resolution up to 23 megapixels, en kan schieten tot 5,3K video's met 60 frames per seconde (FPS); 4K tot 120 FPS; en 2,7K bij 240 FPS. HyperSmooth – 4.0 is een verbeterde EIS-versie die deze camera heeft voor stabielere video. U kunt nu stabilisatie toepassen op hogere videoresoluties (5,3K30, 4K60 en 2,7K120).

Key Differences: Hero 8 vs Hero 9 vs Hero 10

Listed below are the key differences between GoPro Hero 8 Black, GoPro Hero 9 Black, and GoPro Hero 10 Black:

#1. Ontwerp

The GoPro Hero 10 and Hero 9 Black look almost identical, with around ten percent bigger size than the Hero 8 Black. Therefore, you get a groter touchscreen around the back of both the cameras at 2.27 inches as compared to 1.95 inches on the Hero 8 Black. In addition, the Hero 10 & 9 Black also feature a full-color front screen as opposed to Hero 8 Black’s monochrome front display. The color screen is especially helpful for vloggers, as they can frame up their shots even without access to the rear screen.

#2. Oplossing

Met een 23 MP sensor, the GoPro Hero 10 Black has the highest resolution of any GoPro camera. At 20MP, Hero 9’s resolution is also almost double the sensor resolution of Hero 8 Black. The Hero 9 & 10 are capable of shooting 5K, 5.3 videos, respectively. On the other hand, the maximum resolution provided by Hero 8 is 4K. All this automatically means that both the latest GoPro models deliver noticeably crisper shots with much more detail as compared to their predecessors.

#3. Batterijduur

With the launch of the Hero 9 Black, GoPro gestoten the battery capacity to 1720mAh. The latest Hero 10 also features the same battery. This battery boosts the stamina of these latest cameras by about 30%, when you compare it with their predecessor – the Hero 8 Black with 1220mAh. The bigger battery size of Hero 9 &10  Black also means that it can handle extremely cold weather better.

#4. Connectiviteit

All three cameras support connectivity through WiFi and Bluetooth, which enables them to connect to a smart device with the GoPro App. These cameras also support Livestream at 1080p. These cameras have been built keeping in mind the vlogging aspect. All have their own Mediamods (apart verkrijgbaar), die een directionele microfoon toevoegen, ideaal voor vloggen. Je krijgt ook andere handige accessoires voor vloggen die compatibel zijn met deze camera's, zoals Display Mod, Light Mod, etc.

#5. HyperSmooth

GoPro Hero 8 gave a significant upgrade to HyperSmooth by introducing HyperSmooth 2.0. Since then, GoPro has been consistently upgrading its EIS to their better versions, with HyperSmooth 3.0 in Hero 9 Black and HyperSmooth 4.0 in Hero 10 Black. On the latest Hero 10 Black, you can even apply stabilization to higher video resolutions (5.3K30, 4K60, and 2.7K120).

#6. TimeWarp

TimeWarp – a fun Hyperlapse mode for creating super-smooth motion time-lapses is even better with TimeWarp 2.0 on Hero 8 and TimeWarp 3.0 on Hero 9 & 10 Black. You get amazing hyperlapse shots without the annoying 10% crop. Plus it’s also available in all frame rates and resolutions in the latest GoPros.

#7. Verwisselbare lenskap

Until GoPro Hero 7 Black, all GoPro Hero Black models featured verwisselbare lensdop. However, with the Hero 8 Black, GoPro changed this and the lens port was fused to the body, which made it non-removable. With the latest Hero 9 & 10 Black, GoPro has teruggekeerd to the swappable lens. Not only this – the company has also created an interchangeable lens mod called the Max Lens-mod.

#8. Afstandsbediening

All three GoPro cameras can be controlled wirelessly via GoPro mobile app using WiFi and Bluetooth. However, the Hero 9 & 10 Black niet doen work with the Smart Remote and Remo Remote while the Hero 8 Black does.

Bottom Line

All the three cameras — GoPro Hero 8 Black, GoPro Hero 9 Black, and GoPro Hero 10 Black — are GoPro flagship cameras of their time. While there’s no doubt that the latest Hero 10 Zwart has the most advanced features, but it comes with a higher price tag. So, if you’re low on budget, you can choose the Hero 9 Black or even Hero 8 Black (depending upon features and how much you’re willing to spend). Both of them provide great performance even by today’s standards.
