Don’t mistake the Silver for a Hero 7 Black minus a few features – its 4K footage isn’t as good as GoPro’s flagship. This means it’s more like a Hero 7 White that can shoot 4K video, with the same simplified interface and minimalist design, plus GPS and an enhanced photo mode. It’s a very solid point-and-shoot action camera, but if you can stretch to the Hero 7 Black or DJI Osmo Action then they’re well worth the premium. The GoPro Hero 7 Silver is the middle bear in its three-strong action camera family. But this middle-ground pick isn’t necessarily the GoPro sweet spot that it might appear to be. While it has the 4K resolution capture that’s missing from the GoPro Hero 7 White, the GoPro Hero 7 Black offers better dynamic range and features that advanced shooters will be looking for, such as a removable battery and external mic input. Since it costs £279 RRP, the hop up to the Hero7 Black (or the cheaper DJI Osmo Action) is advisable – although when did you last pay the RRP for an item anywhere but the supermarket? The GoPro Hero 7 Silver is a good buy at £220, its online price at the time of review. GoPro’s design hasn’t changed much since...
