Action-camera industry leader GoPro’s latest releases really are its greatest (to date): the HERO8 Black lets you concentrate on your sport or activity while it brings new levels of smoothness and ease of use to your 4K video capture.
Highlights of the HERO8 Black and its accessories include a new, pocket-friendly streamlined design, quick-change mounting, and new extended battery and accessory-mounting options,you can now simply tap on the HERO8 Black to switch between Narrow, Linear, Wide and SuperView digital lens modes.In addition to offering multiple fields of view, the HERO8 Black’s lens provides twice the impact resistance of its predecessor. Use the optional Media Mod to attach pro-style accessories like mics, small lights, or a second LCD to your HERO, or opt for the Battery Mod to get 2.5x extended run time when filming a longer event.
TimeWarp 2.0 can also automatically adjust its speed based on your motion, type of scene, and lighting. For your night owl activities, Night Lapse offers a choice of 1080p to 4K night time-lapse videos.Still photo options at 12MP have been ramped up with improved HDR (high dynamic range) in SuperPhoto + and with the LiveBurst feature. This short burst of frames captures 1.5 seconds before and after your shot so you can choose the best frame or share it as a quick video.
The GoPro MAX may be small, but its in-camera stitching, 5.6K30 capture, HyperSmooth stabilization, and touchscreen display are huge! Now you can view your footage directly on your MAX, frame your shot more easily, and even grab a selfie in HERO mode.
The MAX shares the same ability to “punch in” and reframe your 360˚ video as its Fusion predecessor, as well as offering 16' waterproof depth, built-in GPS, still photo capture, voice commands, and 360˚ audio.
As with the HERO8, in the MAX HERO mode you can choose between Narrow, Linear, Wide and SuperView digital lens modes, capture amazing time-lapse sequences in TimeWarp, and use the Horizon Leveling to keep your craziest stunts or silliest antics on a stable plane.
Nifty accessories for the MAX include replacement lens protectors, lens caps, and side doors. The MAX Grip & Tripod can be used with any GoPro, but is specifically designed to record in 360˚ without getting the grip in your shot. The MAX dual battery charger automatically determines which MAX battery to charge first and can be used with the GoPro Supercharger for up to 48% quicker charging.
