Introducing the GoPro Hero 8 Black

Capturing the thrills and spills like never before…

25 Oct 2019

Whether it’s downhill skiing or stomach-flipping rollercoasters, there are fewer more exciting ways to capture the action than GoPro. And now the GoPro Hero 8 catches those high-octane moments like never before. Let’s find out what’s packed into the GoPro Hero 8…

Check out what 9 times East of England Enduro Champion, Chris Hockey thought of the Go Pro Hero 8 Black when he took it for a spin...


HyperSmooth 2.0 image stabilisation

With the amount of rough riding the GoPro Hero 8 goes through, a smooth picture is essential. And that’s where the updated HyperSmooth comes in. HyperSmooth 2.0 keeps things on the level and has multiple levels of stabilisation—including Boost and horizon leveling. So, no more shaky pictures on that hair-raising toboggan run.


Digital Lenses

Modern smartphones don’t just give you one lens, and the GoPro Hero 8 is no exception. So now you’ve got four lenses for every situation: Narrow, distortion-free Linear, Wide and SuperView.


And there’s no fumbling to change the lens at the crucial moment. Just tap on the screen to switch and you’re good to go.


TimeWarp 2.0

Ever captured a bustling city with time lapse? It’s a great way of getting a fast, exciting tour through colours and cultures. And then there’s those moments where only slo-mo will do, like capturing an awesome skateboard trick. TimeWarp 2.0 does it all with its automatic speed selection. Or you can take control just by tapping to speed things up or slow them right down.


Improved HDR

If you’re riding rapids or bungee jumping into a canyon, you don’t want to miss a second of the action when playing it back to your mates.


The GoPro Hero 8 looks better than ever thanks to improved HDR. Just crank up the contrast and kill the blur. Its clever algorithm grabs every detail of the moment in breathtaking detail.


Night Lapse Video

One of the best times to see a city is when the sun goes down and the lights come on. So, set up your GoPro 8 Hero and harness that nighttime magic in 4K, 2.7K, 1440p or 1080p. Miles better than holiday snaps. Then share it on social and lap up the likes!


Rugged and waterproof

The GoPro Hero 8 is built to go with you anywhere. Whether you’re riding a water slide or taking the plunge into a pool, you want to capture that magic moment without worrying about damaging your shiny new tech. Fortunately, this is one device that has graduated from the school of hard knocks.



High Fidelity Audio

With three mics and reduced wind noise, you’ll get natural audio quality—even at breakneck speeds. So, your GoPro Hero 8 will be able to capture whatever you choose to say – whether that’s roller coaster commentary or just a collection of thrilled screams!
