2018 ,GoPro released the camera of the HERO7 Black, and a year later Hero 8 Black also met with you. In the past year, GoPro has added a lot of competitors, like DJI Osom, and the stability of mobile phone shooting is more stronger. In this case, what upgrades will GoPro continue to attract consumers? Let us take a look at it below.

GoPro hero 8 appearance

Appearance Hero 8 Black does not seem to be much different from the previous product, but in fact it has made a lot of adjustments in the details. One of the biggest changes is the built-in folding joint, which makes it easy to connect with a hand-held tripod without the use of a frame, making it easier to use. The Hero 8 Black bare metal supports 10 meters of waterproof, and the waterproof case can be up to 60 meters waterproof.

In addition, the new enhanced front microphone under the Hero 8 Black lens not only reduces wind noise, but also makes the vocals clearer during self-timer. It is worth mentioning that the new generation Hero 8 is 14% lighter than the HERO7, and the weight reduction is very helpful for long-time handheld shooting.

GoPro hero 8 shooting function

For shooting, the Hero 8 Black supports four focal lengths, which can be switched between narrow, distortion-free linear, wide and Max SuperView. Stable feature HyperSmooth enhanced upgrade to HyperSmooth 2.0; TimeWarp mobile delay is also upgraded to version 2.0, with automatic speed selection, or click to speed up or slow down.

The Hero 8 Black adds LiveBurst mode, which captures clips 1.5 seconds before and after the shutter is pressed, selects the perfect image from 90 still images, or shares a 3 second 4K video clip. In addition to this, there are night scene delay recordings, enhanced HDR enhancements, etc., which are not separately introduced here.

In addition to the improvement in performance parameters, the most attractive part of this Hero 8 Black is the three optional components. Let's take a look at each.

Media Mod

The media option component has a gun-type radio microphone, a 3.5 mm microphone connector, HDMI output and two cold shoe mounts to greatly enhance the scalability of the Hero 8 Black, making it suitable for use in Vlog shooting. There is no need to have a separate "rabbit cage".

Display Mod

The Display Optional component provides a two-inch up flip screen that helps Vlogger better compose the image.

Lighting Mod

The Light Matching Kit adds LED lighting to the Hero 8 Black and can be mounted to a GoPro mount or used separately.

The combination of the three accessories, Hero 8 Black's adaptability to the shooting scene is greatly enhanced, it is still very attractive for Vlogger and media practitioners, although the previous DIY can achieve similar functions, but I believe that GoPro's official accessories can bring For better consistency.

Released with the Hero 8 Black, there is also a new panoramic camera GoPro MAX, which GoPro says is by far the most innovative multi-function dual-lens camera. GoPro MAX users can switch between shots freely. In addition to turning on the dual-lens panoramic view, the front and rear single shots can be used interchangeably, and the stability is just like using a HERO camera. The MAX camera has four shooting focal lengths that can be switched on demand, including GoPro's widest super wide-angle viewing angle MaxSuperView.
