GoPro Hero 10 Black Creator Edition Review Battery Problems Solved

So in this post we will take a look at the GoPro Hero 10 Black Creator Edition which takes the Hero 10 Black camera and puts it together with three accessories in one package. GoPro sent us one to test out, so let me show you all the pieces that make up the Creator Edition and whether it makes sense for you so let's have a look.


So I had the GoPro Hero 10 Black Creator Edition in pieces. Now at the center of it is the same great little camera that was announced last year in September 2021. It's GoPro's current top camera the Hero 10 Black and that features video captured up to 5.3k at 60 frames per second or 4k at 120 frames per second for slow motion. A ton of other shooting options of course and it's got incredible image stabilization and it's waterproof down to 33 feet.

Now the camera is just the camera and it's really the mounts and accessories that make it more versatile so for the Creator Edition GoPro bundled it with a couple of its mods, the media mod and the light mod. So if you pop off the side door on the camera and slide it into the media mod and that adds a micro HDMI output, a 3.5 millimeter mic jack and a USB C passthrough for charging the camera.

While it's in the mod it also has a directional mic with a removable foam, windscreen and two cold shoes and in one of those shoes you can slide in the included light mod which is a compact LED light with four levels of brightness, including an overdrive mode for getting it as bright as possible and a strobe option so that you can use it as a safety light.

There are brighter lights out there but they're bigger and heavier and they're unlikely to be waterproof which this one is. Now both of these mods have been available for some time but the Creator Edition puts them together and adds the new Volta hand grip right here. Now the Volta which is more than just a grip it has a USB C cable here and that plugs into the back of the media mod and there's a battery in the grip so GoPro says that battery will let you record with the camera for up to four hours.


It's also a bluetooth remote control for the camera so you can power on and off the camera, switch shooting modes, start and stop recording, snap photos or start a time lapse and since it's a wireless connection you can use it with the camera mounted somewhere else. Now the cable is just for power so it needs to be connected by bluetooth to get it working as a wireless remote.

Now the Volta has built-in legs too, so you can flip it down and use it as a tripod and the top mount swivels all the way around so you can get the camera just in the right position and it also has a set of pop-out mounting fingers so it can quickly be attached to another mount and you can still take advantage of the battery. Now it's too bad that it doesn't extend at all but it does have a tripod mount in the bottom so putting it on a selfie stick is easy enough and gives you a little more reach if it's needed.

Another thing to keep in mind is that while the individual parts are weather resistant or waterproof once the vault is connected to the media mod they're no longer weather tight so standing around in the snow or rain while they're all connected while you're vlogging won't be the best thing to do.

Now what is the pricing of the GoPro Hero 10 Creator Edition?

Well as you might expect since the package includes the camera this is not going to be cheap. The Hero 10 Black Creator Edition is $785 dollars but for the GoPro service subscribers it's $582 dollars which actually isn't too bad. But the best deal though is going to be for new subscribers and that brings the total price down to $532 dollars and if you just want the Volta grip alone that's going to be $130.
