GoPro Hero 8 Black review

 

The Hero 8 Black might no longer be GoPro's flagship, but it now offers great value to those who don't need its successor's front-facing screen.

Excellent image stabilization Time-saving Capture Presets Unique time-lapse modes New built-in mount Improved microphone New Media Mods

Sub-smartphone picture quality Poor low-light performance

The Hero 8 Black may lack a couple of features that you can get on its successor (namely, a front-facing screen and 5K video), but it's still a fantastic all-rounder that's compatible with GoPro's Mod accessories. Its 4K video is just as impressive as...

GoPro Hero6 Black review: is more power everything?

 

Higher frame rates and 5Ghz Wi-Fi ensure more options and faster uploads. Is that enough?

Higher frame rates ; Still waterproof to 10 metres without a case ; 5GHz Wi-Fi for faster transfers

Expensive ; HEVC codec not compatible on all devices ; Low light shots still suffer

GoPro Hero6 Black review

 

GoPro's best, most powerful action camera ever

Durable, waterproof body ; Slick 4K video at 60fps ; Super-slow-motion 240fps video ; Improved image stabilization ; Much better Wi-Fi transfer speeds

Still requires patience to operate ; Controls can be cumbersome ; An expensive hobby gadget

The GoPro Hero6 Black gets a major update with 4K 60fps and super-slow-motion Full HD 240fps video. These, along with improvements to image quality, faster transfer speeds and smaller file sizes make this the new best action camera.

GoPro Hero6 Black review

 

Yes, Tina, we do need another Hero...

Superb video quality ; Image stabilisation works really well ; Loads of mounts and accessories ; Auto-editing software is useful

Some potential codec frustration ; Battery life quite short when shooting 4K ; Doesn't support Bluetooth mics

It’s not cheap, but the Hero6 is the best GoPro ever and king of the action cam mountain

GoPro Hero 6 review: Slow-mo, stabilization and subtle refinements

 

The Hero 6 is the first camera from GoPro to feature the company's custom GP1 image processor, and it looks like a successful debut. Video framerates have been doubled almost across the board, making the Hero 6 the slow-mo lovers dream. Better image...

Improved stabilization ; Large selection of slow-mo options ; Greater manual control of exposure ; Upgraded image processor

Pricier than the Hero 5 at launch ; No update to the design ; File compatibility issues on slow-mo videos

GoPro's Hero6 Is Still the King of Action Cameras

 

GoPro has been the leader on action cameras from the very beginning, and its brand has attained a kind of Xerox-like omnipotence—despite the company's ongoing struggles in recent years. Amongst GoPro's problems is the difficulty in making the...

The slow motion is insane, as is the dynamic range.
