The new design also features a side door for faster changing of batteries. In addition to all of these game-changing features, the built-in-lens is 2 times more impact resistant. The camera can take anything and withstand any shooting condition, even underwater!
Fantastic Image Stabilisation Thanks to HyperSmooth 2.0
Users can benefit from three levels of image stabilisation on high and boost. The user is free to pick whichever option is best for their situation. Whether the user is after wide views or incredibly smooth video ever to be captured on a GoPro HERO, the choice is in their hands. It should also be noted that HyperSmooth is compatible with all resolutions and frame rates, and it also comes with in-app horizon levelling.
Stunning Time-lapses and Speed Control
TimeWarp 2.0 automatically adjusts speed based on motion, scene detection, and lighting for awesome time-lapses. Users can slow down the effect in real-time, and then simply tap to speed the footage back up. Additionally, the camera recognises when a subject is facing it, smiling, blinking etc. This information is used by the GoPro App to pick the best shot and generate stunning videos.
There are plenty of photographic options to capture the perfect moment. LiveBurst records 1.5 seconds before and after the shot allowing users to pick the ideal single frame for the perfect photo. SuperPhoto + HD capture 12-megapixel photographs with elevated HDR whether it is moving or stationary, with minimal blur and crisp details even in low lighting. RAW mode is available in all photo modes including time-lapse and burst photos, offering greater flexibility. Another useful feature for vloggers, influencers and folk who just want their Instagram story to look its best, is the portrait orientation option. When travelling solo simply use the Photo Timer to capture the best moments, alternatively utilise it for group photos.
High Quality Video
Incorporated into the camera are a plethora of video recommended presents for Standard, Activity, Cinematic, and Slow-Mo capture. The user can generate their custom presents for much more comfortable access to their preferred settings. For social media sharing, users can shoot 15 or 30 second clips. Furthermore, studio-quality video capture with bit rates options of up to 100Mbps is also possible. Another fantastic video feature is the High Efficiency Video Coding (HEVC) option thanks to which SD card space can be salvaged. It reduces file size without the loss of image quality. The downloadable GoPro App, that is compatible with this device, allows for remote control as well as generating single-and multi-clip edits to share from a smartphone or any other smart device.
The GoPro HERO8 is capable of utilising 14 voice commands such as ‘GoPro, take a photo’. The user can utilise the voice control option even whilst the camera is off by using the phrase ‘GoPro, turn on.’ The device understands a variety of languages including English (US, UK, AU and India), Chinese (Mandarin), French, German, Italian, Japanese, Korean, Portuguese (BR), Russian, Spanish (EU and NA), and Swedish.
Add the most used features as shortcuts to the customisable LCD screen.
