GoPro has revealed the new HERO8 Black. Here are the highlights.
GoPro has revealed the new HERO8 Black. They’ve set the price at $399.99. I’ve put together a roundup of GoPro deals separately.
I also have a detailed comparison of the HERO8 Black vs HERO7 Black.
Here are the highlights:
You can find the official instruction manual for the GoPro HERO8 Black here (PDF).
There’s likely to be high demand for the HERO8 Black as we head towards the holiday season, so if you’re looking to get one you might want to grab your place in the queue sooner rather than later.
The HERO8 Black is now shipping orders placed at GoPro.com. That’s where I ordered mine, and I already have them. B&H Photo is also taking preorders; they’re expected to take delivery of their first stock on October 24.
The mods should be available for pre-order in December. No word yet on when they’ll actually start shipping. Here are GoPro’s descriptions of the mods:
The Media Mod, Display Mod and Light Mod are modular accessories that enable users to enhance the performance of their HERO8 Black.
The Media Mod ($79.99) is an add-on frame for HERO8 Black that provides professional-grade shotgun-mic performance, two cold shoe mounts plus I/O support including a 3.5mm external mic port, HDMI and USB Type-C ports.
The Display Mod ($79.99) is a folding, 1.9″ front-facing display that attaches to the Media Mod to make framing easy when vlogging and using HERO8 Black as a selfie camera. When not in use, the Display Mod can fold down and out of the way, functioning as a rear-facing display.
The Light Mod ($49.99) is a waterproof (33′ / 10m), rechargeable LED light that can attach to the Media Mod or any GoPro mount to provide enhanced lighting in low light settings. Given its versatility, the Light Mod very well may be the world’s most versatile light.
