Details Concerning the GoPro Hero 11 Black Mini's Technology

By Mahnoor Mushtaq - Nov 9, 2022

GoPro has announced a minor delay in the shipment of the previously announced GoPro Hero 11 Mini camera, which was scheduled to begin on October 25. This change was made quite recently because, just a few days ago, everything was still designed to start shipping (even behind the scenes). As of right now, the camera will begin delivering on November 18. GoPro issued a press statement to announce the change: GoPro founder and CEO Nicholas Woodman said, "HERO11 Black Mini is a wonderful camera, and we're giving ourselves a little more time to polish the product for our eager customers." I'm in awe of my Mini and can't wait for the general public to own one.
Details Concerning the GoPro Hero 11 Black Mini's Technology


  • Similar to the GoPro Hero 11 Black, but lacking the two screens, is the GoPro Hero 11 Black Mini. You can preview a photograph without downloading the Quik app to your phone using the small display at the top.
  • The internal hardware is the same as that of the Hero 11 Black. The GoPro GP2 CPU and the substantial 1/1.9-inch sensor are also included.
  • GoPro's standard Hero 11 Black weighs 133g, 15% more than the Hero 11 Black Mini. Additionally, it is incredibly thin at 52.4mm.
  • Basic parameters are shown on a little LCD on top of the GoPro Hero 11 Black Mini. You may check the battery life, the remaining memory card space, and the currently selected mode.
  • The three presets—5.3K, 4K, and 1080p—can be switched with the SuperView FOV set to 60 frames per second and a side button. Before considering any other factors, GoPro recommended that you base your choice on which would offer the longest battery life. A run time at least 50% longer than 5.3K is most likely the result of shooting in 1080p. Naturally, 5.3K offers many more editing choices and better image quality. To use any of the other modes, which are many, you must remotely control the GoPro Hero 11 Black Mini using the Quik software on your phone.

Features & Specs

  • In most other ways, the GoPro Hero 11 Black Mini and regular Hero 11 Black are interchangeable. It can capture 4K video at a maximum frame rate of 120, 2.7K video at a maximum frame rate of 240, and 5.3K video at a maximum frame rate of 60.
  • Extensive exposure periods are used in advanced low-light video settings to capture time lapses with superb clarity. You can use a torch or other light source to paint in the air at night, see the stars' paths as they move across the sky, or make light streaks out of moving vehicles.
  • However, there isn't a separate stills mode. Instead, GoPro allows you to extract crisp photos from 5.3K footage.
Details Concerning the GoPro Hero 11 Black Mini's Technology
  • There is technically no reason why GoPro couldn't support still capturing. The Mini's focus was probably thought to be weakened by the addition of such settings, and it was believed that the camera wouldn't produce high-quality stills. Although the Hero 11 Black lacks HDR photo capability, 24.7MP images are still made from high-resolution video recording, so nothing is truly lost.
  • Using GoPro's most recent Implicate 5.0 stabilizer technology, the Hero 11 Black Mini can lock the horizon at up to 27 degrees of camera rotation in full modes.
  • The same goes for a full 360-degree spin at lesser resolutions and frame rates. The extra image data in the frame would not be sufficient to support this. Thus you must always use the linear field of view. The GoPro Hero 11 Black Mini will deliver exceptional stability in either situation. It's because of the peculiar 8:7 sensor shape.


The reduced size of the HERO11 Black Mini makes it more comfortable to wear when filming from a point-of-view, and the dual mounting fingers increase your options for mounting to your body and helmet. GoPro's durability is elevated to a new level with a hard outer shell. It has the same bigger picture sensor that makes it simple to send vertical shots to social media, and you'll automatically receive amazing highlight movies on your phone.

Release Date

GoPro has now moved forward the anticipated release date of the Hero 11 Black Mini from October 25 to November 18.
