Let’s talk about GoPro 7 first, the predecessor of GoPro hero 8 has amazing super smooth stabilization. However, they got it better with Hyper smooth 2.0. The videos in 4k were amazing. GoPro hero 8 specs have been further tweaked by the action cam makers of GoPro. So finally when the specs are out and they are launching this amazing device. Here I come with a complete review of Hero GoPro 8 Black. The second camera that they launched with a few modifications is the Hero GoPro Max. This is a modified version of GoPro Fusion.
Much awaited gadget hits the block. I Own a GoPro 5, 6, and 7. I love these devices. The performance was so impressive of Hero GoPro 7 Black. I have been using that action camera extensively. The super-smooth feature of GoPro 7 black is awesome. Take a look at some of my videos on my YouTube channel.

What’s new in it? GoPro Hero 8 Specs
First, let’s talk about GoPro 8 black. The only bad thing about GoPro 7 is that in case you need to charge it or access memory card, you need to get it out of its housing. Gone are those days mate. These slots are now placed on the sides and are easily accessible. The new GoPro 8 has an inbuilt mounting system. Which means that you do not need to put this camera first in the housing and then attach it to the GoPro mounting accessories.
It has flaps at the bottom which opens up downwards, and when not in use they flip up to lie flush with the GoPro Hero 8 Black body and are held in place by magnets. This is awesome…..! Few amazing things that are now are the shotgun-mic performance, 3.5mm mic and HDMI-out ports, and two cold-shoe mounts—all in one. It has a flip-up screen for video loggers and a flash which can be attached with it. I am flipping already man!
Now let’s come to GoPro max. I loved Fusion as I mentioned earlier. I used it since my friend had it. However, I got a 7 Black and was waiting if GoPro comes out with another bad fusion looking, bad boy. GoPro retrofitted this beast with some awesome punching features compared to its predecessor fusion. You can now shoot single-lens hero style video with unbreakable stabilization. You can capture immersive 360-degree footage. Video log to the max with shot-gun mic performance and a front-facing screen. This just keeps on getting better.
Hyper smooth 2.0
Don’t you like the hyper smooth feature of GoPro 7 Black? Well, you will fall in love with Hyper smooth 2.0 of GoPro 8 Black. This Hyper smooth 2.0 is built on the foundation which was laid by Hyper smooth feature of GoPro 7 Black. Never ever will there be a shaky video ever in the future of GoPro. This feature is available in all the modes available on this device. To add to this, there is something called as the beast mode in Hyper smooth 2.0. This mode gives you super duper smooth videos but with a hint of crop video factor. But it’s all good. I can’t wait to get my hands on this device.
GP1 Sensor (The best)
Another modification which is being done to this 8th generation of action camera is the changes to its sensor. The new GP1 sensor is super efficient and works like a artificial intelligence. Now, we all know the timelapse feature which is in GoPro 7. Well, time-lapse on this device is on steroids, thanks to GP1 sensor. You can now automatically adjust the speed of the time-lapse footage based on data that is being captured by this sensor. You can tap in the middle of the video to capture realtime footage or focus on something. I am flipping out seriously. GoPro Hero 8 specs are amazing!
Honest Hero 8 review
The interface is being pumped up by GoPro engineers. It has been completely revamped and now you need lesser taps to get things done. Shoot 4k footage at 60 fps and with hyper smooth 2.0 feature, you will never know what is shaky videos. Additional modifications are crazy. You can attach a shotgun microphone for crystal clear audio. Additional LED for making videos in dark. Now everyone can be Bear Grylls. lol! Furthermore, a flip-up screen for video loggers like me. Hey, by the way, check out my YouTube channel mate.
