The GoPro HERO 8 Black is the most versatile, unshakable HERO camera ever. A streamlined design makes it more pocketable, and swapping mounts takes just seconds, thanks to built-in folding fingers.
Updated HyperSmooth 2.0 stabilization produces smooth, gimbal-like movement at all supported frame rates, without the need for a gimbal.
The GoPro HERO8 Black supports up to UHD 4K video resolutions and still images can be captured in up to 12MP resolution in bursts of up to 30 images per second with the updated SuperPhoto with HDR that helps reduce blur and enhance detail in low-light scenes. The LiveBurst function allows you to record 1.5 seconds before and after your photo to give you more choices for the best frame. The lens field of view (FOV) choices have four modes: Narrow, Linear at 24.4mm, Wide at 16.5mm, and SuperView at 15.1mm.
The HERO 8 Black supports direct streaming to Facebook Live. It's also waterproof to 10m, suitable for surfing, snorkeling, and swimming activities. Separately available floats and housings are available separately for additional water support. The touchscreen provides quick and easy control but the HERO8 Black also understands 15 voice commands in over ten languages and accents so you can verbally control the GoPro HERO 8 Black.
Additional updates include a redesigned battery door for quicker battery changes, a lens with twice the impact resistance as the HERO7, an optional Battery Mod for nearly 2.5x more battery life, and an optional Media Mod to expand your accessory possibilities.
Vloggers, pro filmmakers and aspiring creators can do more than ever imagined — with quickloading accessories like flashes, microphones, LCD screens and more. Just add the optional Media Mod to up your capture game.
