GoPro’s innovative camera systems have always pushed the envelope, especially when it comes to capable design, cutting-edge features, and intuitive use. This is especially apparent with the company’s lauded HERO line — a collection of functional cameras that have made it easier than ever to capture high-end video and photo. Now, the next iteration in GoPro’s well-rounded catalog has finally been revealed.
The new HERO8 Black joins the likes of the HERO7 Black, Silver, White, and Fusion, to bring the industry’s most innovative technologies to a compact, handheld platform. As you might expect, it elaborates on the capabilities of its predecessor, incorporating bespoke attributes like TimeWarp 2.0, improved SuperPhoto, and custom presets/lenses to the flagship. Now, you’ll be able to utilize improved HyperSmooth 2.0 stabilization — which introduces GoPro’s smoothest capture to date — without taking a hit to your field-of-view, offering users the most advanced in-camera pitch correction to ever be implemented within the HERO range. A number of high-performance modes, like 1080p240, 2.7k120, and 4k60 shooting come standard, alongside four digital lenses — Narrow, Linear, Wide and SuperView — to help you compose your shot in a unique way. This, paired with up to ten capture presets, a frameless, built-in mounting system, impact-resistant lens, and up to 33-feet of water resistance, will afford creatives an unparalleled range of creative opportunities. The HERO8 Black is available for pre-order on GoPro’s website for $399.
