Its been some time now since I bought the original GoPro Hero. It was the coolest thing to have an affordable tiny camera for action sports. Although these cameras are common amongst adventurers around the globe, new versions still amaze. The images you can get from them keep getting better as do our cell phones. With their rugged build and small size, why wouldn't you pack one with you every trip? So should I ditch my HERO 5 and 6's laying around for the next best thing? Well my HERO 5 is pretty much toast. Still works but its showing is age. The 6 is still operating well. (I honestly should be using it more but its not my only camera.) Are there any new features to justify spending $399 (Current price at time of writing) for the new GoPRO HERO7 Black version?
(Note: Features noted above are for the New GoPro Hero 7 Black ($399). Silver ($299) and White Hero 7 ($199) will be offered at a lower price and will lack certain features.)

Here is a great review by DC Rainmaker on the new GoPro I found on YouTube... since I have not made a review of my own.
Here is a great review by DC Rainmaker on the new HERO7 I found on YouTube.
As with the last few releases, GoPro offers 3 options at different price points. The one with the best to least amount of features being the Hero 7 Black, 7 Silver and Hero 7 White edition. You can see some of their main differences below. If you need a no frills camera with great footage at only 1080p, the White version is a great choice for less money.
The difference between the Black and the Silver Hero 7 is mainly improved stabilization, more frame rates at 4K, Live Streaming and a TimeWarp Video feature. All are waterproof without a case up to a certain depth. A depth deep enough you shouldn't worry about unless you're scuba diving in an abyss. =) You can still get a case or a cage for added protection. We all know how rowdy you can get sometimes. lol.
