Back in May of this year, GoPro CEO Nick Woodman said in an internal conference call: "I am happy to share our exciting updates on the product lineup at all price points in the fourth quarter." All prices Point means that Black, Silver and White will all be upgraded, but what the camera people are most concerned about is what new features the Black model can bring.
A few days ago, a spy shot about GoPro Hero 8 was exposed to the network, showing the new design of the new machine.
The biggest innovation in the GoPro Hero 8 is probably the new design of the camera case. This case seems to be equipped with an integrated microphone to help users achieve higher quality audio recording. The side and top of the case have slots for additional accessories such as LED lights.
And the switch button and interface position have been exchanged, and the optional external casing can be used to newly access the device microphone, LED lights and even screen accessories.
From the leaked pictures, we can see there is an external screen. It seems that GoPro wants to use the external screen to satisfy the vlog user to observe the self-timer content. However, since the screen has a Type-C interface, it seems that this screen is powered by itself, so the interface of the top and the side of the outer casing may be The cold shoe interface only serves as a fixed position.
GoPro Hero 8 has new accessories
The GoPro Hero 8 offers a new accessory housing with connectors on the top and sides to connect to the new accessories, and the case will also provide a better microphone to improve the sound quality of the recording.
In addition, the new accessories include a small LED with 10 LED sockets and a buoyancy kit called "Floaty" that wraps the fuselage directly in the form of a jacket, providing sufficient buoyancy on the one hand. On the other hand, it provides better impact and collision protection
Since the photo only shows the front of the camera, without looking at the outer casing, Hero 8 seems to be no different from Hero 7 in terms of the core of the fuselage. As for the upgrade in shooting performance, there are currently only unconfirmed rumor specifications:
● Newly designed housing and accessories
● 12 million pixel sensor
● GP2 processor
● Released in September 2019
● 4K 120fps/1080 480fps
● Improved optical lens and image quality
If the 4K/120p shooting ability is true, it is indeed a big upgrade, which will allow GoPro to stand on the throne of the sports camera again. In addition, the action on the Hypersmooth image stabilization function is not seen in the above specification sheet, but this is a software function, and there is no major obstacle if a subsequent upgrade is required.
Finally, there is another question: In the face of the price challenge of DJI Osmo Action, what kind of strategy does GoPro adopt in pricing? We believe that GoPro will not cut prices at a high probability, but will still follow its usual new machine pricing standards. But one thing is for sure. Users who want to buy Hero 7 but are not particularly eager to use can slow down first. It is a wise choice to start Hero 8 to release the price of Hero 7.
