The GoPro Hero8 Black has reinvented everything GoPro cameras have been known for. HyperSmooth 2.0 image stabilization really is like your camera is mounted on a gimbal now - at every frame rate and resolution! Automatic color tuning preserves the full range of rich, vibrant, dramatic colors. TimeWarp 2.0 lets you stop a timelapse capture to go into real-time capture in mid-shot, so you can really highlight particular moments.
GoPro Hero8 Black key features
- captures 1.5 seconds before and after you hit the shutter—so you can pick the perfect shot from 90 still images. Or, share a 3-second 4K video clip.
HyperSmooth 2.0 electronic image stabilization
- as good as locking your GoPro Hero8 to a crane. Go ahead, stick your Hero8 out the window while driving at 75 mph (don't drop it!) and see for yourself how stable your footage is. Four stabilization options: Off, On, High, and Boost. Stabilization available at every resolution and frame rate - stabilize 1080p240 for super-smooth slow motion.
Redesigned color tuning
- Auto white balance and color tuning capture skin tones, canyons, blue skies, and tropical fish more vibrantly than ever in fantastic detail.
- go hands-free with voice commands like "GoPro, take a photo." Wake on voice allows you to turn your GoPro Hero8 Black on, and even start recording, with a few words.
- panorama photos, without the panning. Take incredible 270° distortion-free panoramic photos without having to scan the horizon. Plus, capture motion shots. Can you imagine the epic selfies?
- with three mics and reduced wind noise, you'll get natural audio quality - even at breakneck speeds! Stereo audio capture in .mp4 and .wav formats.
- Get the best photos automatically. SuperPhoto intelligently applies HDR, local tone mapping or noise reduction to optimize your shots.
- Capture super stabilized time lapse videos while you move through an activity. TimeWarp adjusts speed based on motion, scene detection and lighting (automatically for HERO8 Black). You can even slow down the effect to real time, to savor the best moments - and then tap to speed it back up.
Digital lenses/field of view
- framing your shot is as easy as tapping a new digital lens. Four different digital lenses to choose from: SuperView, Wide, Linear, and Narrow.
- Share your story as you live it with video streaming to Facebook Live. You can save your streamed videos to your SD card in high resolution.
- manually control color, white balance, shutter speed and more. Connectivity
- Wi-Fi + Bluetooth®-enabled. Connects to GoPro app, and, with GoPro Plus subscription
, auto-upload your memories to the cloud.
- GPS captures your location, altitude and speed. To share your adventures, add GPS performance stickers to your videos in the GoPro app.
- no more fiddling with frames! Build-in loops at the bottom of the camera fold in and out, allowing you to mount the GoPro Hero8 without a frame.
Overhauled and upgraded in-camera menu
- choose from four presets with just a couple of clicks: standard, action, cinematic, and slow-mo. You can even create custom presets for quick access to your favorite settings.
Lens tougher than ever
- Hero8 front lens is thicker than before and made with Gorilla Glass, twice as impact-resistant as the Hero7.
- one big side door covers battery, microSD card, and USB-C port.
