GoPro HERO8 Black

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.

The GoPro HERO8 Black supports up to UHD 4K video resolutions, and time-lapse, up to 1080p240 slow motion, and super-slow-motion video. Still images can be captured in up to 12MP resolution in bursts of up to 30 images per second with the updated SuperPhoto with HDR support that helps reduce blur and enhance detail in low-light situations. It also features an updated Night-Lapse function to shoot and process up to 4K time-lapses at night. The LiveBurst function allows you to record 1.5 seconds before and after your photo to give you more choices for the best frame. The lens field of view (FOV) choices have also been updated to four modes: Narrow, Linear at 24.4mm, Wide at 16.5mm, and SuperView at 15.1mm.

Like its predecessor, the HERO8 Black supports direct streaming to Facebook Live. It's also waterproof to 33', suiting it for surfing, snorkeling, and swimming activities. Separately available floats and housings are available separately for additional water support and even deeper underwater activities down to 196'. The touchscreen provides quick and easy management, but when your hands are full, the HERO8 Black understands 15 voice commands in over ten languages and accents so you can verbally control the HERO8 Black. Just shout "GoPro, take a photo" and your HERO8 will use your current settings to snap a photo, making selfies a breeze.

SanDisk 64GB Extreme UHS-I microSDXC Memory Card with SD Adapter

Designed for microSD devices such as smartphones, interchangeable-lens cameras, drones, or GoPro action cameras that can capture Full HD, 3D, and 4K video, as well as raw and burst photography, the 64GB Extreme UHS-I microSDXC Memory Card from SanDisk has a capacity of 64GB, is compatible with the UHS-I bus, and features a speed class rating of V30, which guarantees minimum write speeds of 30 MB/s. If your device does not support the V30 standard, this card also supports the U3 standard, which also guarantees minimum write speeds of 30 MB/s. Read speeds are supported up to 160 MB/s and write speeds max out at 60 MB/s.

While this card has been designed for cameras that are UHS-I / V30 / U3 compatible, it may be used in devices that do not support UHS-I / V30 / U3. However, bear in mind that this card will then default to your device's speed class and bus rating, such as UHS-I and U1, which supports minimum write speeds of 10 MB/s, or Class 10, which also supports minimum write speeds of 10 MB/s.

Aside from support for UHS-I, V30, and U3, SanDisk also built this card with support for the Application Performance Class 2 (A2) spec, which includes optimizations to give Android users an improved mobile experience, delivering faster mobile app performance. The A2 spec allows the card to manage random read input-output access per second (IOPS) operations so it can quickly open apps and process accompanying tasks, such as audio, graphics, saved profiles, and in-app permissions.

As with most SanDisk media, this memory card is shockproof, X-ray proof, and waterproof, while also being able to withstand temperatures, allowing you to take this card with you into extreme environments. Should the card's data become compromised, you also benefit from the option to download RescuePRO Deluxe software, and SanDisk's Memory Zone app offers users a simple way to organize, browse, and back up files on their Android mobile device. Additionally, included is a microSD to SD adapter with a write protect switch, allowing this card to be used in SD-compatible devices.

General Features

Read speeds up to 160 MB/s, write speeds up to 60 MB/s, and minimum write speeds of 30 MB/s
Class 10, App Performance Class 2 (A2), Video Speed Class 30 (V30), and UHS Speed Class 3 (U3)

A Bit Expensive, But Great for What it Does

By Timothy
Rated 5 out of 5
Date: 2021-12-07

The GoPro Hero8 doesn't come with all the included accessories (like waterproof case or suction cup mount) or extra batteries of its much less expensive brethren like the SunPak 4K, the Dragon Touch 4K, or the ALS Video Action Cam 4K. But what it does come with is nearly two decades of experience building small, easily-mountable action cameras that work well and in the most extreme environments, and give you great-looking genuine HD or UHD (depending on your needs) video footage, time-lapse, and stills for a modest price. No, it doesn't come with an included underwater housing because it doesn't need to - it's built to be waterproof for up to 10 meters, which is far enough for anybody other than deep-sea divers. It also doesn't come with a shock mount to absorb shaky camera movements - because it has built-in Hypersmooth 2.0 image stabilization. It also doesn't come with a built-in external mic jack - because its built-in mic is pretty good for recording audio alongside video. The HERO8 comes with three lens settings - standard wide-angle, Superview which is essentially a fisheye lens, and Linear which is like the field of view you'd get with a fixed-focus lens. If you're not shooting in 4K, then you also have a digital zoom feature should you wish it. Like most Action Cams, the HERO8 uses MicroSD cards - unlike a lot of the less expensive ones, it can use cards of up to 256 GB of storage capacity. The battery, USB-C recharging port and card slot are hidden behind a fold-out panel that takes a little getting used to, but that also helps protect the most vulnerable parts of the camera from the elements. The teeth style of mounting with GoPro pioneered has become an industry standard for Action Cams - yes, it takes some getting used to as well, but it's a lot more durable than a standard tripod screw! Fortunately adapters to work with standard tripod designs are cheap and plentiful - though not included with the HERO8, sadly. If you need a cheap Action Cam that you can toss off a cliff and not worry if it's shattered to bit once it hits? The HERO8 may be a bit pricey for that. But if you want a small, capable camera that you can mount on your car's dashboard, on top of your helmet, or on your pet's harness (yes, that's really a thing!) and continue using more than once? the GoPro HERO8 is the camera you want to purchase.

I love the small, very easy to carry size of the Hero. This is my first and while it has it limits much as any camera in this price range will, I am pleased with my purchase. The adjustable fisheye lens is a big plus considering a similar lens for a DSLR will cost about as much. I recommend buying the mod case for it because then the camera becomes plug and go. I was able to run an RCA cable from my DJ mixer right into the headphone jack and get quality sound without clipping.

I love my Hero 4 so much I bought a Hero 8 so I could use one of them for time-lapse while having the other available to carry. The Hero 4 has such an intuatively obvious user interface that I don't recall ever having to look at the user's manual. The Hero 8 is the opposite. After two years of using it I still want to smash it to pieces every time I do. Touch it and it interprets the touch as a command to change a setting you spent an hour making and will now have to spend another hour on.

Two questions. 1st, does it record audio in all video frame rates? 2nd, can it operate using external power via the USB 3 connector? I will probably want to make time-lapse videos significantly longer than the roughly 2 hours maximum battery life.
Asked by: Dave
As I stated in my review, the camera overheats within 30-45 minutes of regular video use and shuts down no matter what. During a recent trip I did several time lapses, and they recorded fine until the battery ran out, so obviously the overheating issue stems only from continued use of the camera sensors as opposed to capturing a single shot every few seconds. I suppose with an external battery pack this could go on for a very long time.
