Go Pro Hero 8
From: $75.00 plus insurance and GST
GoPro augments its already impressive action camera line with the GoPro HERO8 Black, the versatile next-generation action cam designed to capture smooth, stable footage of your latest adventure, from a simple boat trip to a wild jump-off-a-mountain ride. The HERO8 Black features updated HyperSmooth 2.0 stabilization to produce smooth, gimbal-like movement at all supported frame rates, without the need for a gimbal. Additional updates include a sleeker physical design with a “folding fingers” type base for fast mounting, a redesigned battery door for quicker battery changes, a lens with twice the impact resistance as the HERO7, an optional Battery Mod for nearly 2.5x more battery life, and an optional Media Mod to expand your accessory possibilities.
The GoPro HERO8 Black supports up to UHD 4K video resolutions, and time-lapse, slow-motion, and super-slow-motion video. Still images can be captured in up to 12MP resolution in bursts of up to 30 images per second with the updated SuperPhoto with HDR support that helps reduce blur and enhance detail in low-light situations. It also features an updated Night-Lapse function to shoot and process up to 4K time-lapses at night. The LiveBurst function allows you to record 1.5 seconds before and after your photo to give you more choices for the best frame. The lens field of view (FOV) choices have also been updated to four modes: Narrow, Linear at 24.4mm, Wide at 16.5mm, and SuperView at 15.1mm.
Like its predecessor, the HERO8 Black supports direct streaming to Facebook Live. It’s also waterproof to 33′, suiting it for surfing, snorkeling, and swimming activities. Separately available floats and housings are available separately for additional water support and even deeper underwater activities down to 196′. The touchscreen provides quick and easy management, but when your hands are full, the HERO8 Black understands 15 voice commands in over ten languages and accents so you can verbally control the HERO8 Black. Just shout “GoPro, take a photo” and your HERO8 will use your current settings to snap a photo, making selfies a breeze.
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.
A radical enhancement to HyperSmooth, HyperSmooth 2.0 now has multiple levels of stabilization—including Boost—and game-changing in-app horizon levelling.
Get that surreal TimeWarp effect you love—now with automatic speed selection. Or just tap to speed it up or slow it down.

Crank up the contrast, kill the blur and shred. The revamped algorithm delivers badass action shots with detail you never thought possible.
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.
