GoPro augments its already impressive action camera line with the HERO8 Black, the versatile next-generation action cam designed to capture smooth, stable footage of your latest adventure, from a simple boat trip to a wild jump-off-a-mountain ride. The HERO8 Black features updated HyperSmooth 2.0 stabilization to produce smooth, gimbal-like movement at all supported frame rates, without the need for a gimbal. You can also use the HERO8 Black as a webcam on your computer using a free, downloadable app. Additional updates include a sleeker physical design with a "folding fingers" type base for fast mounting, a redesigned battery door for quicker battery changes, a lens with twice the impact resistance as the HERO7, an optional Battery Mod for nearly 2.5x more battery life, an optional flip-up Display Mod to make viewing your frame easier, an optional LED Light Mod, and an optional Media Mod to expand your accessory possibilities.

will my Gopro 8 work with My Atem Mini as a webcam?! or Do I need a capture card for it to work ?!
This is a setup I use every day for videoconferencing. (GoPro 8 to Atem Mini Pro to MacBook Pro.) As others pointed out, you 100% need the Media Mod. This camera has no HDMI without it. You also need a micro HDMI to full-size HDMI cable. If you are going to be using it long-term, you would also need a USB-C cable and a fairly beefy wattage charger to keep the battery topped up while the camera is active. Alternately, you could have a separate charger and spare batteries, but swapping batteries is kind of a pain with the Media Mod and tripod mount on the camera.
