GoPro Hero11 Black Mini Ships

GoPro is now shipping the Hero11 Black Mini. The smaller brother of its larger Hero11 Black, the Hero11 Mini uses the standard GP2 image sensor with an 8:7 dimensional design to create 24.7-megapixel stills, and 5.3K video at 60 frames per second, with additional high frame rates of up to 2.7K at 240 fps.

GoPro has also boosted TimeWarp 3 time-lapse capture to be able to capture time lapses in 5.3K, a 91% jump in resolution. With 10-bit color providing over a billion color shades, the camera’s videos are sharper and more vibrant than ever.

The Hero11 Black Mini offers one-touch camera control, much like the older Hero Session, which enables users to simply turn on the camera and begin to capture the action in one press.

The camera will automatically set to the best setting and begin recording. However, Pro Controls in the GoPro Quik app will enable users to set custom settings for maximum creative control.

While 13 percent smaller than its larger brother the Hero11 Black, the Mini enjoys many of the same immersive shooting modes including HyperView digital, which provides the widest 16:9 aspect ratio that GoPro has ever produced in an action camera.

There are also three new night effect time-lapse modes which include Star Trails, Light Painting, and Vehicle light trails.

With built-in dual mounting fingers, the Mini offers a lower mounting profile, keeping the camera closer to a helmet or body.

There’s a second set in the back, giving the shooters the ability to capture from multiple angles.

The camera also enjoys GoPro’s Hypersmooth 5.0 stabilization and horizon lock up to 27 degrees of camera rotation.

The Mini also has GoPro’s new 1500mAh Enduro battery technology hardwired into the camera, and since users aren’t losing any juice to the dual LCD screens present in the larger Hero11 Black, users are able to enjoy longer battery life throughout the day.

The result is a 10% increase in runtimes when in extended battery mode. The two-edged sword on that, however, is that users can’t just swap out a new battery and will have to recharge the camera at some point during the day, and that means a break in the action.

There is, however, a small LCD screen on top which displays details at a glance such as battery life percentage, space left on your memory card, and the camera mode.

There’s also a side button that lets the creator flip between major presets — 5.3K, 4K, and 1080p — which are all set to use SuperView FOV at 60fps. By cycling through to a lower resolution, users can extend the camera’s shooting time by sacrificing a little resolution. The camera also has the same

But in what may be the Hero11 Mini’s best feature, through the GoPro subscription, the Mini will automatically upload video clips and stills to the cloud, where GoPro’s back end will AutoEdit a highlight video of the session and email it back to view through the Quik app and share to the world.

Moreover, the camera will perform the Auto upload and edit while the battery is being recharged while only extending the recharge session slightly.

The GoPro Hero11 Black Mini is available now for $299 for GoPro Subscribers and $399 for retail partners.

When you consider that the GoPro subscription is just $49.99 a year and that not only gets you a $100 discount on the Mini, but also total camera replacement coverage, unlimited cloud storage, and up to 50% off discounts on GoPro products, it’s foolish not to be a member.

Even if you’re only buying the camera.
