GoPro, Inc. (NASDAQ: GPRO) today announced the lightest GoPro ever, HERO10 Black Bones, which is purpose-built to be the ultimate First Person View (FPV) drone camera. Featuring GoPro’s flagship imaging pipeline, including the high-performance GP2 processor and Emmy®-winning HyperSmooth 4.0, the camera delivers the same breakthrough image quality and stunning video frame rates as HERO10 Black, packed in a minimalist, lightweight package 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 meet the needs of a specific customer audience,” said GoPro Founder and CEO Nicholas Woodman. “Bones delivers the image quality and performance of HERO10 Black in a lightweight package that’s ideal for aerial cinematography.”

FPV is an emerging creative trend that has wowed many with prospects only possible with FPV drones, whether at a neighborhood bowling alley, Berlin’s Tesla Giga factory or Manchester City’s Ethihad Stadium. Weighing just 54 grams, the HERO10 Black Bones is uniquely suited for FPV capture as the lightest GoPro ever, providing only the essentials for FPV enthusiasts. Housed in a lightweight, well-ventilated case, HERO10 Black Bones delivers the best image quality and stabilization per gram of weight.

“Since the dawn of FPV, pilots have adapted GoPro’s versatile HERO cameras to capture incredibly immersive perspectives in flight – going so far as to saw them off to design a better solution to meet their needs,” said Pablo Lema, Vice -GoPro Product President. “With HERO10 Black Bones, the FPV community now has the lightest GoPro ever – an easy to set up, no-compromise, custom-built camera for the FPV use case. We’re excited to see how far the community can push the boundaries of FPV content creation with HERO10 Black Bones.

HERO10 Black continues GoPro’s commitment to exceptional quality, versatility and performance. The camera’s imaging pipeline is protected in a lightweight housing that includes the HERO10 Black’s durable replaceable cover lens that can be replaced with third-party HERO10 Black and HERO9 Black ND filters.

The camera comes with a license for GoPro’s Emmy®-winning ReelSteady video stabilization – now part of the new GoPro Player + ReelSteady desktop app – allowing FPV pilots to unlock the smoothest, silkiest FPV footage of all time, and with access to premium tools like Lens Correction and Batch Export in the new app.
