Go watch our GoPro Bones
No battery, no screen, no GPS, no fan, and no metal lodge? There’s a tonne of stuff missing from the new GoPro Hero10 Black Bones. However, to that point once more, a typical GoPro isn’t appropriate for the aerobatic exhibition of a FPV drone. So when GoPro sent us a survey unit of its new stripped-down Hero10 Black intended for drone pilots, we enlisted FPV drone pilot Reza Kurniawan to check whether it’s adequate — and you can see his flying abilities in full presentation in our video audit above.
Kurniawan is the sort of robot fan who enlivens the bones regardless. He’s been de-packaging Hero10 GoPros to diminish their weight from 154 grammes right down to around 33 grams. The interest in purported “bare GoPros” has been sufficiently high that it has turned into an assistance he gives to his clients, and the new Bones is a 54-gram variant that GoPro sells itself.
The internals of this camera are similar to what you’d find on the Hero10 Black. It has a similar GP2 processor, HyperSmooth 4.0 in-body adjustment, and a picture sensor equipped for shooting 5.3K film up to 60fps and 4K film up to 120fps.
The $499 Bones ($399 with membership) is the first of GoPro’s “subsidiary” cameras that the organisation reported during its last profit call, and the organisation lets us know we’ll see more specific cameras focusing on specialty crowds from GoPro later on as well. In any case, for the time being, Kurniawan and the remainder of the local area can put their binding stuff down. Or, on the other hand, can they?
