GoPro Hero 8 Black Review

GoPro hero 8 black review

Typically, each year's flagship GoPro touts a marquee feature. In the past, that's included 4K/30fps video (Hero 4), built-in waterproofing (Hero 5) and really good stabilization (Hero 7). The new Hero 8 Black ($399) does not have a single showstopping feature. Instead, it brings several updates, each of which is good on its own, but together, I think they add up to the sort of big step forward that fans of the brand have been waiting for. There's actually quite a lot to get through, so we'll dive right into what's new.

  • New design doesn't require special housing for mounts
  • Image stabilization is even better than before
  • New Mods attachments provide more versatility
  • Camera gets very hot while recording
  • New fixed lens isn't as easy to repair as prior models
  • May not be as rugged as earlier GoPro cameras
