There are three ways to transfer video or photo content: Cloud Upload, Wireless Offload, and transfer to your smartphone by cable. It also has a removable, rechargeable battery.
Beside the battery cover is a microSD card slot and USB-C port. The latter is used for charging, but it can also be used to directly transfer footage to your Hero 10 Black via wired transfer. Android phones need a USB-C to USB-C cable, and iPhones need the Apple Lightning-to-USB camera adapter, plus a standard USB-A to USB-C cable.
Other features include raw capture, Night Lapse Video mode, SuperPhoto + HDR and HindSight, LiveBurst, Scheduled Capture, and Duration Capture options.
