GoPro Hero11 Mini review: an almost uncompromising compact action-cam


In September 2022, GoPro announced two 11th generation cameras. The very classic GoPro Hero11 Black takes up the lines of the previous models. Inside, a new 27 Mpx sensor with an 8: 7 ratio, improved stabilization, 360° horizon maintenance and still the possibility of filming up to 5.3K and 60p. Slow motion is possible in 4K and 120 fps or 2.7K and 240 fps.

Two GoPros, same functions

At the same time, the Californian company unveiled the Hero11 Mini, a compact version of its “big sister”, without a touch screen, but equipped with fixing rods on its back. It is also narrower and lighter (133 g against 154 g), which makes it particularly interesting for those who would like to mount it on a helmet. The Hero11 Mini however retains the functions of the Hero11 Black with a few exceptions:

  • It does not have a photo mode and proceeds, if necessary, to captures in the video sequences.
  • Many commands can only be made from the mobile application, due to the lack of a touch screen.
  • The battery is not removable and its capacity is slightly lower (1500 mAh vs 1720 mAh).
  • It doesn’t have a speaker either.

For the rest, it behaves exactly like the GoPro Hero11 Black to which we refer you to consult a complete test.

Price and availability

For amateurs, the GoPro Hero11 Mini is sold alone from €449.99, and €349.99 with the GoPro subscription. It will be marketed from October 25, 2022.
