I would highly encourage people to wait to see if the issues with the hero 7 black are addressed. I've had to return 2 Hero 7 Black's, 1 purchased from Amazon the other from JB HI Fi.
1st purchase, the camera was completely unusable after trying to update firmware. Nothing worked couldn't even turn on or off... And yes I did the firmware update correctly.
The 2nd purchase from JB I was able to install firmware update 1.61 with no problems, however I was then met with constant freezing, would have to remove the battery to turn the device off. Also the video I did capture, had a high level of stuttering/frame skipping.
Feel free to Google hero 7 black issues/freezing, there are plenty of videos on YouTube and discussions on the gopro forums.
I wish I had not sold my yi 4k+
