This is HERO8 Black—the most versatile, unshakable HERO camera ever. A streamlined design makes it more pocketable than ever, and swapping mounts takes just seconds, thanks to built-in folding fingers. And with the optional Media Mod, you get ultimate expandability to add more lighting, pro audio and even another screen. There's also game changing Hyper Smooth 2.0 stabilization with jaw-dropping slo-mo.

Don’t like that you can’t charge through a wall socket (gets very hot). And have to use laptop USB to charge. Battery life goes fairly quickly.

Las mejoras en general son exclusivamente de software interno, debería llamarse Hero7Black Plus.
El pequeño cambio de tamaño absolutamente injustificado es para que los complementos que saldrán a fin de año no sean utilizables en las cámaras anteriores. Lo que me ha obligado a vender mi excelente estabilizador RemovU-S1.
El rediseño del objetivo (antes intercambiable y más cuadrada) no solo no permite cambiarla como antes en caso de daño, sino que el cambio es más caro que la cámara entera, por lo que ofrecen ahora (GoPro) un seguro de casi 5 euros mensuales con los que sin dar explicaciones cambiarían la cámara dañada por una nueva. Por su nueva forma no muy cuadrada, ya no se le puede poner un protector de caucho como antes al objetivo.
Tamaño de pantalla (imagen trasera) de idéntico tamaño; siguen sin aprovechar todo el tamaño de la parte porsterior.
Menúes ligeramente mejorados.
La conexión con Facebook (y otros) para hacer transmisión en directo sigue dando LOS MISMOS problemas de software, que al desconectarse de la transmisión la app pierde contacto con la cámara y es un verdadero dolor de cabeza reconectarla.
Afortunadamente las baterías de la Hero7 siguen sirviendo.
Los tonos de la piel son mejores en la Hero7Black. El resto de la imágen ha mejorado un pelín via software. Ídem la estabilización (digital, no física) que ha mejorado mucho sacrificando un mayor recorte de cuadro de imagen.
El audio del micrófono incorporado ha mejorado. Tal vez lo único que sea nuevo físicamente? Aunque como no lo especifican, tal vez hasta esto haya mejorado por ecualización y no por nuevos micros.
Han quitado la posibilidad de conectarla directamente a un TV para ver los vídeos sin quitar la tarjeta de memoria; aunque lo han puesto como opción alternativa (un considerable mayor coste) en la nueva carcasa que trae incluído un micro externo (que costará aproximadamente 70 euros.
Un problema de diseño que no existía antes es que ahora para recargar la batería con el USB-C hay que abrir la pestaña de la batería, que es bastante endeble y que sin duda sufrirá con el uso porque hay que abrirla constantemente o bien para conectar el micro externo via USB-C, o para recargar batería por este mismo puerto, o para cambiar de batería. Y que si se doblara por lo débil que es, olvidaos de que siga siendo sumergible.
Consejo: si no la necesitais para trabajar y no compraréis los nuevos y caros complementos (luz, conexión a HDMI, micro incoporado en la carcasa externa MOD que costará 80 euros), la Hero7Black ha bajado considerablemente de precio y la diferencia de calidad final de imagen no es como para reinvertir más de 400 euros.
Using much lower resolutions will increase the usage time by about 20 minutes, but unless you have a heap of charged batteries and are willing to stop and change the battery all the time, the camera is just a waste of space for video.
In camera mode for taking pictures you may get up to 2 hours use providing all the options mentioned above are turned off.
The picture quality is not great either.
The only thing its got going for it is the fact it is small and fits in your pocket, but so do many compact cameras that take better pictures and last longer for your outing.
Waste of money for me.
Die gelieferte Ersatzkamera hat eine noch größere Ausprägung dieses Fehlers.
Bei Nachtfoto und und Videos in dunkleren Bereichen sind diese roten und blauen Punkte deutlich zu sehen.
Ich habe Vergleichsaufnahmen mit der GoPro Hero7 gemacht, hier ist kein Fehler vorhanden.
I'm not sure how a company like GoPro has the audacity to release a new product that isn't supported on computers, it's utterly ridiculous. This is the only reason that my overall rating is a 3. They should display publicly that they DO NOT support desktops or laptops right now because of their own incompetence and failure to update their software.
Other than that, the camera is great, the stabilisation amazing, and the quality and framerate fantastic. I would highly recommend this to those that plan to use it purely on their phone. At least for now.
I'm running an Intel I7-8700k with an RTX 2070 in my rig, the 8700k is a Coffee Lake, which released one year after the Kaby Lake, on GoPro's support website it states that my machine IS compatible, and yet it is NOT. GoPro is great at producing cameras, but their support is garbage, and everything else is terrible.
Those of you with thunderbolt ports can apparently use a 3rd party thunderbolt cable and it will connect, unfortunately those of us with only USB or USB-C ports will need to use a 3rd party card reader to transfer the videos to PC, which means having to remove fiddly little micro SD cards every time.
Either way it appears if you have a higher end / newer PC you may not be able to get the Hero 8 to connect without buying extra equipment.
In all honesty I expected much more from GoPro, a company charging 700% more than the likes of crosstour etc... Sure the video and sound quality may be better and it may have more features, but all that is useless if you can't even access the video files to edit or upload them using your PC, a problem I never had with any of the much cheaper action cameras I have used in the past. At this moment in time I recommend avoiding the Hero 8 unless you're 100% sure you can connect it to your PC or don't mind throwing more money at the items needed to get it to work and the extra faffing about required.
1) Battery life is pants and it is difficult to swap: Anyone wanting to wear this for running a marathon will have to take a wheelbarrow full of batteries with them. Camera does what it is supposed to Ok - but just not for long !
2) Forehead mounting obscures the touch screen so you have to keep tightening and un-tightening the screw thing.
3) Recorded files cannot be edited into a movie because you get "AAC lock" error and there is NO sensible information ANYWHERE about what this is, how to stop it or whos fault it is.
4) The manual (not even supplied in the box, you have to download it) is useless - you have to go online to find out how to do ANYTHING with this device.
5) The menu system is badly laggy; you can keep on swiping and tapping the touch screen for ages before it does anything - then it does lots of things at once.
The lens unit cannot be removed and replaced if it gets damaged, unlike previous GoPros.
6) It's almost impossible to get the battery or chip out when it's mounted on a forehead mount.
7) The battery sticks in the unit and can only be removed with pliers.
8) The auto-loop-back recording only allows a max of 2 hours, not the whole chip. Why Why WHY ??
9) The battery cover is "designed" to come off. Why?. It comes off in the mud every time I have to replace the battery on the hoof (for which job I have to carry a tool kit as well).
There are other less serious problems but overall, this has to be one of the worst super-hyped products I have ever bought.
Firstly, I got this not the Osmo action because this has H265 and the Osmo doesn’t and it is a serious thing for IQ
Now, first action cam but about my hundredth camera.
So..slickness is just wow - want to take a photo underwater ? Set a three second timer with the shortcut. Get near the surface and shout “GoPro take a photo “ Then in you go
Want to turn it on when you’re about to start your run on your bike? Just call” GoPro start recording. “
Worried about your data? It automatically uploads to the GoPro cloud when you charge it. This will save everything at full quality forever, however many GB that is, for £5 pm, plus you’re insured against accidental breakage too.
Video is very sharp. It will shoot RAW. It’s fast and responsive and tough , of course.
The stabilisation is completely incredible. I strapped mine to my dog and the footage was perfect....
Audio really not bad at all. I have proper mics etc etc but the surround effect you get with this is really impressive. If you’re by a a stream you can hear the voices fine but also know they’re by running water.
The app is flawless. Control the camera and set framing? No problemo ( which by the way means you didn’t need the Osmo action’s front facing screen anyway) Update all settings? Check footage? Editing? Yep all in the app
The only thing that hasn’t been very very impressive with this setup is the battery life. I have three batteries and I need them to go out for a two hour adventure with the children and the dog. If you had a heavy day of filming planned you really might need half a dozen batteries ready. They’re cheap enough but it is the first accessory you need to buy. Speaking of accessories there are tonnes of really great accessories for the GoPro available. I bought a cheap £15 kit that had a chest strap, a head strap and a tripod mount and they’re all great.
I’m delighted with this camera. The footage is great. There’s lots of shooting options both for photo and video. The ecosystem is very mature and squared away.
A great purchase and I’m so taken by the usefulness of action cameras I’ll likely pick up another for shooting another angle.
Video quality is excellent and stabilisation remarkable, delivering buttery smooth images while hurtling down the side of a mountain. The integrated folding mounting ears are a great improvement over the cases and frames required with older models
Less good is the non-replaceable lens cover and the silly battery door which frequently detaches itself whilst attempting to plug in the cable. The latter is, I understand, to allow a ‘mod’ device to be attached although this removes the waterproof rating of the camera rendering it somewhat pointless for my purposes.
If you own a Hero 7 (or perhaps 6) maybe wait a year and see what the 9 brings.
Sold for extreme sports and then when it comes to recording a few videos I am not able to do it because it is too cold for the camera to work and the battery dropped from 80% to 3% in a few minutes.
4k great colour new fitting system does away with the cage which is a bonus, I'm very happy with it.
Mi recomendación ante esta falla... Si vas a comprar esta camara, incluye de una vez en tu pedido el kit de protectores de lente.
