Digital Camera World Verdict

The Volta is a tripod and grip, as well as a wireless remote with a reach of up to 98 feet when paired with a Hero 9 and Hero 10 Black. It’s also a 4600mAh power bank that works with any USB-C device. A worthy addition to any GoPro user’s arsenal, its permanently-fixed cable is clumsy, and the grip is relatively pricey, but its utility can’t be argued with, and as part of the Creator Edition bundle, it upgrades the GoPro into a mega-portable entry-level filming rig.

The GoPro Hero 10 Black launched in 2021 and enjoyed a five-star reception – and is still topping the best action cameras of 2022 list, and bettering the Hero 9 Black with its updated processor, smoother performance, and improved connectivity. Now, both the Hero 9 Black and Hero 10 Black can enjoy a battery boost and easier access to key controls with GoPro’s nifty battery grip, the GoPro Volta.

For anyone looking to buy a new GoPro, the Creator Edition has also been announced, marrying a Hero 10 Black with a Volta, a Light Mod and a Media Mod. That means in addition to a battery grip tripod, the Bundle also packs an incredibly bright LED light and upgraded audio and connectivity – clearly targeting vloggers and YouTubers.
