GoPro Hero 8 Black review: price, release date and our verdict

 

Is the GoPro Hero 8 Black now the world's most advanced action camera, or does the DJI Osmo Action have it licked?

Frameless design is sleeker ; The best image stabilisation available ; Bombproof construction ; Pre-set modes produce superb results ; Simple post-production via the app

No front-facing display as standard ; Unreliable voice commands

GoPro Hero8 Black review

 

The action camera to beat

Convenient mounting ; Incredibly stable footage ; Timelapse videos look fantastic

Very good, not fantastic photos ; Still poor lowlight performance ; Small display

If you want the stablest action camera we've ever used, you want the Hero8 Black; it may not be cheap, but as with most GoPros, you get what you pay for.

GoPro Hero 8 Black review: Steady as she goes

 

Lots of small improvements add up to a significant upgrade for GoPro's flagship camera

Fold-out prongs mean you don't need a cage to mount it ; Better video stabilisation ; New timelapse features are great

Won't fit older GoPro cases ; A little pricey

In truth, none of these improvements is particularly groundbreaking and none push the category forward in a huge way, either. But there are enough changes here that, when added together, represent a significant upgrade. It may be more expensive than...

GoPro Hero 8 Black review: Minor redesign, major pay-off

 

GoPro made something of a comeback with the Hero 7 Black, and the Hero 8 builds on that success. While the core camera remains the same, the whole user experience feels much more refined. Some users will be bummed their filters are no longer...

New design renders some accessories obsolete ; No onboard HDMI port ; Battery life remains “acceptable” ; Front-facing display only available with aftermarket accessory

GoPro Hero8 Black review: Have action cameras finally hit a wall?

 

While improvements like HyperSmooth 2.0 stabilization are truly impressive, the latest GoPro generation really only offers incremental upgrades – and that's looking like a trend we can count on in the foreseeable future.
