GoPro's Hero 7 to feature image stabilization and improved waterproofing according to leaks
Adios, shaky-cam footage.
According to a new set of photos on Reddit (via The Verge), it appears as though we've just got our first look at the upcoming GoPro Hero 7 before its official announcement. The shots, which are of an in-store display reveal a little about what we can expect the new camera to bring, including image stabilization and increased waterproofing. It will be available in three colors, including white, silver, and black, and it looks like some of the models will have a front-facing screen, like the Hero 4 line (opens in new tab) did.
GoPro is expected to officially announce the Hero 7 sometime in September, though nothing is confirmed yet. This release could be a big one for GoPro, as it's recently left the drone business (opens in new tab) after releasing the Karma, and not had much success with its Fusion 360 camera (opens in new tab). With companies like Apeman (opens in new tab), Yi (opens in new tab) and others undercutting their prices with some great action cameras, GoPro has to really nail the Hero 7 in order to remain competitive.
There's no word on pricing or availability yet, so be sure to stay tuned for more information as it becomes available.

"... waterproofing according to leaks" -- made me LOL
Beat me to it.
Image stabilization? But then it won't have that classic, "action cam" look where you get disoriented by everything.
