It didn’t take very long for the GoPro replaces his Hero7 with a logically named Hero8 . Better quality, simpler, presentation videos are always convincing but very few of us can claim to take the same pictures after buying a camera. To expand its target audience with the Hero8 Black, GoPro also targets YouTubers and vlog enthusiasts with the possibility of live broadcasting in HD 1080p on social networks.
The mode Hypersmooth is improved, here in version 2.0, and works in all video formats, including slowmotion . Other functions: the TimeWarp automatic (insertion of slow motion and accelerated motion in a normal video), editing Quik integrated into the GoPro mobile application, the more fluid and intuitive menus.
Another new feature is the replacement of the Fusion for the GoPro MAX . The Max integrates all the functions of the GoPro Hero8 Black with 6 microphones, a 360° camera, PowerPano to make 270° panoramas in a single shot… This camera combines the wide shots of the GoPro8 Black and the 360° mode of the Fusion.
When the GoPro Hero 7 Black cost €329 when it was released a year ago, the Hero8 Black is announced at €429 as of October 15, 2019. Not to mention optional accessories such as the flash torch, tilting screen and microphone to make it a complete camera. We are moving a little bit out of sports accessories to focus on the production of videos of all kinds, so the tripod combo + flip-top screen and remote microphone in order to film ourselves in front of the camera (the fashion of the selfie).
YouTubers will be able to exchange their usual smartphone for this pretty camera.
As for the GoPro MAX is announced at €529 from 24 October. And of course, the GoPro Plus subscription still exists for 50€ per year (unlimited storage in the cloud, extended camera warranty, 50% discount on accessories and fixings).
