GoPro have made the HERO8 Black their most pocket-friendly camera yet. It's much more streamlined, and quicker than ever to swap mounts, thanks to the built-in mounting bracket.
However bumpy your ride, image stabilisation makes your video look smooth. Pick from 2 levels, including wide view, depending on what you're shooting. It even works during Full HD livestreaming too.
Not only are your timelapse videos smooth, the HERO8 Black can automatically adjust the speed based on speed, scene, and lighting, so you can slow it right down for those interesting moments.
Mix things up by switching up the way you frame your shot. Toggle between narrow, linear, wide, and SuperView.
Brilliant photos too
It's not all about the video. Capture 12 MP HDR photos that are detailed and sharp, even mid-action. Getting the shot is easy thanks to LiveBurst mode, which adds video to your photo so you can pick the best frame.

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 HyperSmooth 2.0 stabilization with jaw-dropping slo-mo.
The reimagined shape is more pocketable, and folding fingers at the base let you swap mounts quickly. A new side door makes changing batteries even faster, and the lens is now 2x more impact resistant.
HERO Black Mods
Vloggers, pro filmmakers and aspiring creators can do more than ever imagined—with quickloading accessories like flashes, microphones, LCD screens and more. Just add the optional Media Mod to up your capture game.
Smooth just got smoother. Now HERO8 Black has three levels of stabilization—On, High and Boost—so you can pick the best option for whatever you do. Get the widest views possible, or boost it up to the smoothest video ever offered in a HERO camera. Plus, HyperSmooth works with all resolutions and frame rates, and features in-app horizon leveling.
Capture super stabilized time lapse videos while you move through an activity. And now, TimeWarp automatically adjusts speed based on motion, scene detection and lighting. You can even slow down the effect to real time—savoring interesting moments—and then tap to speed it back up.
LiveBurst mode captures 1.5 seconds before and after you hit the shutter—so you can pick the perfect shot from 90 still images. Or, share a 3-second 4K video clip. Ah, choice.
SuperPhoto + HDR
Capture killer 12MP photos with improved HDR—while in motion or stationary—with reduced blur and serious detail even in low-light areas.
Night Lapse Video
Shoot awesome time lapse videos at night in 4K, 2.7K 4:3, 1440p or 1080p, all processed in-camera.
Now it’s easier to get the best view of whatever you’re doing. Tap through four lenses: Narrow, distortion-free Linear, Wide and SuperView.
Go hands-free with 14 voice commands like “GoPro, take a photo.” Even if the camera is off, you can say, “GoPro, turn on.” HERO8 Black understands English (US, UK, AU and India), Chinese (Mandarin), French, German, Italian, Japanese, Korean, Portuguese (BR), Russian, Spanish (EU and NA), and Swedish.
Advanced Wind-Noise Reduction
Enjoy crisper, clearer audio quality with a new front mic location and improved algorithms that actively filter out wind noise.
