GoPro Hero 8 about to release?

Postby POACHER » Mon Sep 09, 2019 4:07 pm

Getting to be about the time GP releases their new cams. Many Youtube speculation/leak vids popping up. Any retailers here have some intel?
I just bought a 7 Black last fall and am mostly happy with it. (vid/image quality, stabilization, voice comand) Some negatives remain. (poor battery life, random bug outs/shutdown, still not gimbal quality stabilization)


At least it doesn't fog anymore!

I'm hanging out for this too, I was going to go with the DJI Osmo Action but thought it better to wait see what GoPro release first.
I reckon the version 2 of the Osmo Action could eclipse the GoPro (not for at least a year though I guess)

Yeah it's pretty much like mobile phones these days - the second you buy the latest and greatest, version 2.0 comes out a week later with better, cooler features.

The rumor mill on the Hero 8 is saying 4k 120fps. That's pretty incredible if there's a memory card large/fast enough to handle that much data. (that isn't $200 itself)

Hoping there's some gains made on stabilization too. Hypersmooth is pretty good, but room for improvement. Would LOVE to have the camera do what the Revel Arc was attempting with the auto rotation field of view.
We'll see in a couple weeks.
