GoPro HERO 7 manual

The Hero 7 Black is no longer GoPro’s most current action cam, but its lower price does make a good value proposition if you don’t need the newest camera on the block. Video and photo quality is excellent, the stabilization makes a huge difference over previous models, and it is probably all you need.

Getting the most out of your GoPro action cam requires some understanding of how to use it. That’s where having the owner’s manual comes in handy. With proper usage, there is less risk of damage, and you’ll learn how to get the most out of it.
