All - thought this may be of interest to some. I bought the new Hero 10 Black and I'm very impressed compared to my Hero 7. The reviews suggest it is only a minor upgrade from the 9, but clearly the cumulative upgrade since the 7 is considerable.


Settings
  • Format: 4k24 Superview
  • Stabilisation: Hypersmooth Boost
  • Bit Rate: High
  • Shutter: Auto
  • EV Comp: -0.5
  • White Balance: 5500k
  • ISO Min/Max: 100/6400
  • Sharpness: Medium
  • Colour: Flat
  • RAW Audio: High
  • Wind: Off

Post Processing
  • iMovie
  • Slight increase in contrast
  • Moderate increase in saturation

Extras:
  • Wind cheater cover
  • Stuntman chest mount

Impressions v GoPro Hero 7 Black
  • Significantly less lens distortion
  • Better image clarity (higher bit rate)
  • Much better stabilisation
  • Flat profile is less flat, but nicer to work with
  • Lens appears to be a slightly narrower view
  • Audio is much better
  • Camera is bigger and heavier but this wasn't noticed mounted to my Stuntman chest mount

Nice. I also recently got a Hero 10. Here's a video of B-Line at Whistler.


Mine's a lot more pixelated than yours, although some of that might be from light levels. What res and fps did you use?

His is streaming from YouTube with the FAR SUPERIOR vp09 codec.
Yours is streaming with the avc1 codec.

You can make YouTube stream yours in vp09 also, by either shooting in 4K or tricking YouTube into thinking that you shot in 4K.

You can do this by rendering your 1080p footage @ 4K. YouTube will see it as 4K footage and stream it with vp09.
It makes a world of difference on the YouTube output.

I have a couple of three terabyte external drives I use.

I work with the footage for a video project off of my super fast internal SSD, then archive the footage to an external drive once the video project is complete and the final video is rendered.

Thanks for the lightning quick response. Just looking at a new iMac. Thought this may impact my spec selection.
