GoPro HERO10 Black Bones

GoPro, Inc. announced the lightest GoPro ever, HERO10 Black Bones, purpose-built to be the ultimate FPV (First Person View) drone camera. The company says the camera delivers the same image quality and video frame rates as HERO10 Black, packaged in a minimalistic, lightweight enclosure designed specifically for FPV use.

“Bones is an important step in our strategy to leverage GoPro’s core camera-technology to produce derivative products that address the needs of a specific audience of customers,” said GoPro Founder and CEO, Nicholas Woodman. “Bones delivers HERO10 Black image quality and performance in a lightweight body that is ideal for aerial cinematography.”

FPV is an emerging creative trend that has wowed many with perspectives only possible using FPV drones – whether at a neighborhood bowling alley, the Tesla Giga Berlin factory or Manchester City’s Ethihad Stadium. Weighing in at only 54 grams, HERO10 Black Bones is uniquely suited to FPV capture, the company says.

“Since the dawn of FPV, pilots have been adapting GoPro’s versatile HERO cameras to capture incredibly immersive perspectives in flight – going as far as sawing them apart to engineer a better solution to address their needs,” said Pablo Lema, GoPro VP of Product. “With HERO10 Black Bones, the FPV community now has the lightest GoPro ever – an easy to set up, no-compromise, custom-designed camera for the FPV use-case. We’re excited to see how far the community can push the limits of FPV content creation with HERO10 Black Bones.”

HERO10 Black Bones can capture 5K 4:3 video at 30 frames per second, 4K 4:3 video at 60 frames per second, and 2.7K 4:3 video at a super-slow 120 frames per second. The camera ships with a license for GoPro’s ReelSteady video stabilization, now part of the new GoPro Player + ReelSteady desktop application described below.

HERO10 Black Bones is available starting today in the United States at for $399.99 with an included one-year GoPro Subscription or $499.99 without a subscription.
