The GoPro Hero 10 Black Bones camera has been launched, a strip-down version of the flagship Hero 10 Black camera. This camera is purposefully a great first-person-view (FPV) drone camera. Weighing just 54g, it is the lightest camera in the company’s lineup. To achieve this feat, GoPro Hero 10 has removed screens, speakers, waterproofing and even batteries from Black Bones. However, the company did not compromise on its recording capabilities. The GoPro Hero 10 Black Bones is equipped with the same image sensor and GP2 processor as the Hero 10 Black.
GoPro Hero 10 decided to release Black Bones when it realized that drone pilots were already cutting off GoPro cameras to improve their drone flight times. As mentioned earlier, this camera is custom-designed to capture FPV shots.

GoPro Hero 10 Black Bones Specification
The camera has a premium high-performance imaging pipeline powered by a GP2 processor, capable of recording 5.3K video at 60fps, 4K video at 120fps and 2.7K video at 240fps. It comes with a license for premium features like the Emmy-winning RealStudy stabilization technology. As mentioned earlier, the GoPro Hero 10 Black Bone weighs just 54g, making it an ideal choice for 3-inch class or larger drones. Its strip-down perimeter allows improved airflow and cooling, enabling drone pilots to record for extended periods of time.
The company acknowledged the dangers of shooting with drones, and added the Hero 10 Black Bonus with a replaceable lens cover. This has made the camera compatible with existing drone batteries. GoPro offers multiple control options for the camera, including two physical buttons on the camera itself. You can use the GoPro app or other applications to manage the camera wirelessly. Additionally, you can connect the camera directly to your drone’s transmitter to handle it from the flight controller.
