The HERO8 Black firmly sends it big with next-level HyperSmooth 2.0 video stabilisation – dramatically improved stabilisation over HyperSmooth 1.0 – which works in all resolutions and frame rates, features a new Boost mode and has in-app horizon levelling.
Also new, TimeWarp 2.0 features automatic rate adjustment and tap-control speed ramping. HERO8 Black sports four digital lenses so users can easily select a frame of view, improved audio with enhanced wind suppression, customisable mode presets and a lighter, frameless design featuring folding mounting fingers.
“It’s been 15 years since the first GoPro camera, and from the start, we’ve been about enabling people to share their passions whether they’re fuelled by adrenaline or artistry,” said GoPro Founder and CEO Nick Woodman. “HERO8 Black, the Mods and MAX redefine what’s possible with a camera.”
Mind-melding TimeWarp 2.0 auto adjusts to your speed and can be slowed to real time with a tap. The revamped SuperPhoto feature delivers ghost-free HDR action photos, and all-new LiveBurst captures 1.5 seconds of 12-MP (4K 4:3) footage before and after the shutter. And if you need to hear it to believe it, HERO8 Black’s new wind-optimised front-facing mic and high-fidelity audio improvements will certainly do the trick.
Plus, new digital lenses help you to set up the shot like a pro every time with one of four options – ranging from GoPro-patented SuperView to zero-distortion linear – and customisable capture presets provide quick access to settings for any activity. All of this is housed in a streamlined, frameless design with folding mounting fingers.
HERO8 Black can also be transformed into a vlogging or production powerhouse with the new modular accessory ecosystem from GoPro. The Mods enable on-demand expansion of HERO8 Black’s capabilities without sacrificing the signature compact ruggedness of the HERO camera design.
