Solid build; pretty easy to figure out. Nice footage. Used some footage strapped to a skateboard for a TV spot for a national retailer.

A Bit Expensive, But Great for What it Does

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.

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.

What is the "playback" speed of various framing rates? 30fps is 30, 60 is 60, but what is 120 and 240fps? I'm guessing 30fps?

This camera plays all videos at the speed that they were recorded at. it does not slow down the video for you.
