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

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...

Practical new design ; Improved stability ; Easy to use while maintaining pro features

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