GoPro Hero 8 - Released for order

Postby sidd finch » Fri Sep 13, 2019 12:07 pm

September is typically GoPro's new release month. There is some speculation on the new GoPro Hero 8. No word on the actual release date.

The lens of the Hero 8 Black doesn’t protrude quite as much as the one on the Hero 7 Black, and it’s also not removable. GoPro says it made the glass twice as hard as the glass on the Hero 7 Black, so it shouldn’t need to be replaced.

The Hero 8 Black also uses a new battery, GoPro’s first in years. It’s the same shape and capacity, but it’s more powerful. The new camera can draw power out of the new battery at a faster rate in order to help with some of the most intense shooting modes.


On the software side, GoPro’s executed a number of impressive changes. Front and center is the new version of HyperSmooth. The digital image stabilization feature that made its debut on last year’s Hero 7 Black garnered pretty rave reviews by making footage look super smooth without lots of noticeable warping or loss of resolution. GoPro has pushed the envelope even more with HyperSmooth 2.0, though. Footage shot on the Hero 8 Black with the new HyperSmooth enabled makes Hero 7 Black footage look almost jittery. GoPro teased the ability to ditch a handheld stabilizer last year, but this year, the company really means it.

GoPro also built in more control over HyperSmooth, with the ability to set it to “high” or even turn on a “boost” mode that crops in even tighter for extra-stable footage. Best of all, HyperSmooth is now available in all shooting modes.


The Hero 8 Black ticks pretty much every box when it comes to resolution and specs. It shoots 4K footage at up to 60 frames per second, including at 100 Mbps bitrate for the first time ever. It will shoot 240 frames per second at 1080p for super slow motion footage. The Hero 8 Black can live stream at 1080p, up from 720p on the Hero 7 Black.

One drawback to all these resolution and frame rate options is that it can be overwhelming. So GoPro added a “presets” drawer that users can access with a quick swipe of the finger. The camera ships with four already dialed in, but they can be easily tweaked, and the camera can store up to 10 at a time. GoPro’s ProTune settings are also now found here.

I see Amazon is selling it for $399.99. If you apply for the Amazon Visa card, you can get $70 off that.

There isn't a picture of the back of the camera. Is there an LCD screen back there? Wait... I see you can buy lcd screens that attach to the GoPro Hero 8 for previewing (instead of viewing on your phone?). How much is all this really going to cost? Well, a week's worth of groceries is almost $500.00, so not too bad.

Hero 8 on Amazon
Gateway DX4860-U28 i5-3300 Quad Core 3.0 GHz, Intel HD 2500 graphics, 8 Gb RAM; 1 TB 7200 RPM, 10 TB External, Windows 10 (x64).

Camera is $399 USD

The optional media mod lcd will cost approx $79 USD.

But, I am wondering if you can connect any monitor via the HDMI plug so if you already have a small monitor you can just use that instead of making the purchase..
