its old faithful, the in a bunch of new features like
2.0, Linear mode at 4K, 1080p ‘Full HD’ to
100Mbps bitrate in hi-def videos, and a user interface that is designed to be more intuitive than anything we have seen on the Hero Blacks before.
On the other hand, GoPro is also extending the functionality of its action cam—with the help of its Mods—to appeal to vloggers, pro filmmakers and YouTubers.
Regardless of the group you belong to, the Hero8 Black brings something new to the table: Professional content creators might want to consider this new GoPro for the features that it offers beyond traditional video cameras, while user of the Hero5 Black and Hero6 Black could seriously look at upgrading now.
Owners of the Hero7 Black should wait till GoPro launches its Mods to see if the extra utility they offer is worth an upgrade or not. And finally, with the launch of the Hero8 Black, GoPro has further reduced the price of last year’s Hero7 Black (`30,500), which is still very good camera and well worth considering if you’re looking for your first action shooter.
