Shaky Video is Dead. GoPro HERO7 Black Features Gimbal-Like Video Stabilization In-CameraGoPro, Inc. (NASDAQ: GPRO) announced its new product lineup including its $399 flagship, HERO7 Black, which sets a new bar for video stabilization with its standout feature, HyperSmooth.

HyperSmooth is the best in-camera video stabilization ever featured in a camera. It makes it easy to capture professional-looking, gimbal-like stabilized video without the expense or hassle of a motorized gimbal.
