  • Streamlined Design: The reimagined shape is more pocketable, and folding fingers at the base let you swap mounts quickly. A new side door makes changing batteries even faster, and the lens is now 2x more impact resistant.
  • HERO8 Black Mods: Vloggers, pro filmmakers and aspiring creators can do more than ever imagined—with quick-loading accessories like flashes, microphones, LCD screens and more. Just add the optional Media Mod to up your capture game.
  • HyperSmooth 2.0: Smooth just got smoother. Now HERO8 Black has three levels of stabilization—On, High and Boost—so you can pick the best option for whatever you do. Get the widest views possible, or boost it up to the smoothest video ever offered in a HERO camera. Plus, HyperSmooth works with all resolutions and frame rates, and features in-app horizon leveling.
  • TimeWarp 2.0: Capture super stabilized time lapse videos while you move through an activity. And now, TimeWarp automatically adjusts speed based on motion, scene detection and lighting. You can even slow down the effect to real time—savoring interesting moments—and then tap to speed it back up.
  • LiveBurst: Record the moments 1.5 seconds before and after your shot, so you can choose the best single frame for the perfect photo—or an awesome shareable video.

    The media could not be loaded.

     So far I like the size and weight of the product. I’m a self-proclaimed tech nerd and I’m finding the software/application installation to be a problem. I’d like to know how to contact the manufacturer so I can start creating🤔
    I’ll update my review once everything is in working order👌

    I really like this camera a lot. It is my first Go Pro and really my first action camera ever. I use it a lot to capture moments when I fish and the picture quality is beyond insane! The only draw back is the battery life. Not all cameras are perfect haha

  3. Mariia

    We handled to record just one video, on the second the red light went on and the camera stopped turning on.
    Thankfully to GoPro support now we are managing the replacement.
    But some events were missed as well as our precious time.

  4. C. Watts

    Really bad video quality in even mediocre light at 60fps. Seems to be fine at 30fps, though.

  5. brian cooper

    Small, light, excellent stabilization. Excellent picture quality. Very easy to use

  6. Jacob Forbes

    Works like a go pro should battery life is okay. On and off multiple times. Was able to run it with a battery back. Does get hot pretty quick.

  7. Ryan lenz

    This product works great. Just don’t buy it if you need it to see in the dark or low to very low light situations. Decent battery life though.

    It’s important to know how cameras work. A lot has already been written in reviews, but from an experienced photographer and Action Camera user, this GoPro 8 Black does the job for the price. These things are great for action filming, sports or even stationary. Within their limits they’re tough; waterproof to ten metres with their casing. You might need spare batteries. The App is okay.

    I never watch Youtube reviews but after a lot of research I jumped in on a special discount offer. The first thing I noticed was the
    GoPro 8 getting hot, but that’s to be expected up to a point. Image quality, lens, and stabilisation are the things I want first, followed by the settings menu and ease of use. The Go Pro Hero 8 Black is better than I expected.

    Use this camera for a couple of weeks and get used to it; then there is still a lot to learn about GoPros but it’s all worth it. There are advanced functions, Timelapse and Timewarp to have fun with. It even works by voice commands plus it has remote control functions. Ideal for me.

    First set up the camera properly for the job and get the exposure triangle right. The rest is all up to the camera. Not a fan of colour grading or editing too much: pictures are pretty good with the GoPro colours; the sound from the microphone is acceptable. To sum up this camera it just does the job I need as a filmmaker and it’s tough and waterproof.

    I would buy this camera again.

    Upon opening the box, I noticed the items inside were a little dusty, which was odd since they were packaged in the box. I also noticed some of the edges of the instruction manual were worn down. I think I may have received a used or refurbished GoPro — which is not what I ordered.

    Unfortunately, the GoPro wouldn’t turn on, neither with the battery or directly plugged in with the battery removed. No indicators, no LED lights, no sign of life at all.

    Bizarre experience. Immediately returned it to Amazon and will buy another from elsewhere.

    Camera is a few weeks old and is faulty. The camera does not power up and is a common fault which GoPro has no fix to it. Avoid the 8, 9 and 10 as they are the same

  11. Richard J Gresham

    Bought this to replace my old underwater camera. Used it the first time just a week after receiving purchase. Since it was such a different kind of camera, I wasn’t sure. When I was able to view the footage on my phone just an hour after diving, I loved it. I am still getting use to the GoPro, but like what I am seeing.

  12. Wilsarno

    Was waiting and waiting for a GoPro. Amazon Friday delivered and this came on offer. Love it!

  13. Kenneth Johnson

    Let me start by saying this thing has awesome video quality and is very capable. With higher frame rates you can get buttery smooth slo mo for B Roll. The only problem I have with this camera is the fact that the battery, SD card, and power connection are all in the same place makes it very hard to run external power. There is a solution from a company called 3BR powersports model x-pwr-h8.
