GoPro is introducing HERO8 Black, Mods and MAX—and redefining what's possible with a camera.
HERO8 Black

HERO8 Black builds upon the success of its predecessor and brings unparalleled performance to the HERO line. HERO8 Black goes beyond with the next-level of HyperSmooth 2.0 video stabilization. It delivers dramatically improved pitch-axis stabilization and works in all resolutions and frame rates and has in-app horizon leveling, featuring a new Boost mode. Also new, TimeWarp 2.0 features an automatic rate adjustment and tap-control speed ramping. The revamped SuperPhoto feature delivers ghost-free HDR action photos, and all-new LiveBurst captures 1.5 seconds of 12MP (4K 4:3) footage before and after the shutter. HERO8 Black sports has four digital lenses to help setting up the shot like a pro every time with one of four options—ranging from GoPro's patented SuperView to zero-distortion linear—and customizable capture presets provide quick access to settings for any activity. HERO8 Black's new wind-optimized front-facing mic and high-fidelity audio improvements will certainly do the trick. All of this is housed in a streamlined, frameless design with folding mounting fingers.

The Media Mod, Display Mod and Light Mod are integrated accessories that deck HERO8 Black out with professional-grade audio, a front-facing display and enhanced lighting. For those seeking the additional performance, Mods enable users to transform their HERO8 Black into a production house.

Media Mod : The Media Mod delivers shotgun-mic directional audio performance and features two cold shoe mounts for additional accessories along with Type-C, HDMI and 3.5mm external mic adapter ports.

Display Mod : The Display Mod is a folding front- or rear-facing 1.90-inch display that attaches to the top of the Media Mod. It's the perfect size for both framing up vlogging shots and folding down and out of the way when not in use.

Light Mod : Waterproof to 33 feet (10 meters), wearable and gear-mountable, the Light Mod is the world's most versatile light. The Light Mod is readyto brighten any scene, whether mounted to the Media Mod or attached to a GoPro mount, it's rechargeable, and it comes complete with a diffuser to soften lighting when filming with HERO8 Black.


GoPro MAX is a dual lens GoPro camera that maxes out on versatility— it's like having three cameras in one. MAX is waterproof to 16 feet (5meters). MAX can be used as a single lens max stabilized HERO camera, a dual lens 360 camera or the ultimate vlogging camera with its built-in front facing display and six mics that enable shotgun-mic audio performance. No matter how you use it, Max HyperSmooth delivers next-level quality of video stabilization. Max TimeWarp bends time and space with expanded control and performance over traditional TimeWarp. MAX also features four digital lenses for the ideal "look", front-facing touch screen for easy framing and the new ultra-wide Max SuperView—GoPro's widest field of view ever. Additional updates include one-click 270° PowerPano photos, in-camera 360 video and photo stitching. When creating 360 edits, MAX users now have Reframe, the GoPro app's new keyframe-based editing experience. It's easy to quickly "reframe" 360 footage into a traditional video with super-smooth pans and transitions. Reframe matches the power of desktop 360 editing solutions but with the convenience and usability of the GoPro app. GoPro MAX is like no other camera in the world—perfect for innovative users looking to take their creativity to the MAX!
The Updated GoPro App

Apart from the combination of GoPro and Quik Apps, GoPro app also supports both GoPro and phone content in edits, allows filters to be applied to single clips as well as multi-clip edits and now streams live at full 1080p resolution on both HERO8 Black and MAX. The app's auto-generated video edit feature also has four new themes inspired by iconic GoPro edits from the company's in-house media team. Choose between Adrenaline Seeker, Adventure Travel, Cinematic and Memory Curator and share directly to social media or store within the app as an editable draft to revisit.

GoPro Million Dollar Challenge is back – Featuring HERO8 Black and MAX
