Go Pro Hero 7 Silver Vs Hero 6 Black.

Trying to decide if the 6 Black is worth the extra cash as opposed to the newest 7 silver .

We are basically going to use it as a recorder for my daughter who’s a AAA hockey goalie and record her in net, It will be suction cupped to the glass most of the use . I am sure owning it we will start to dable a little more with its use. Snowboarding and wakeboarding are our other primaries . We will just be getting into video editing and what not. So trying to decide which version to go with here . I was leaning hero 7 silver .

The Hero 5 Black came across the view as well , but being 2 versions old I am assuming I may want to stay away from that.

Hero 7 silver $299
Hero 6 Black $349
Hero 5 Black $249

For $99, this is a great camera

If you were leaning towards the 7 silver for $299 but considered the 6 black at $349 I would recommend the 7 black at $399. Improvements in stabalization for when you use it snowboarding or wakeboarding will be a great feature. For transparency, I don't yet own a black 7 but waiting to see if any deals show up on black friday.

I trust certain reviewers, like MicBergsma : https://youtu.be/TymB-dFlOCo

Good luck, post what you decide to do.
