Which of the new GoPro cameras right for you?
For years, GoPro has made action cameras that could mount just about anywhere to capture anything. They are reliable, waterproof, and indestructible. Now with the introduction of MAX and the upgrade of HERO8 Black, choosing the one that’s best for you is not only a question of what you’re capturing but how.
Do you want a high frame rate? 360° video? What about panoramic photos? Burst mode? Night lapse videography? You’ll have to answer these questions and others when deciding between the two. No Film School is here to help you out. Let’s get into it.
The HERO8 Black continues the familiar exterior GoPro design and replaces the HERO7 Black. The dimensions are relatively the same and its weight of 126g is only 10 grams heavier than the HERO7. The big advantage of the HERO8 design is it no longer needs a separate frame to attach to GoPro mounts. Instead, a folding fingers mount is built into the bottom of the camera. The mount is retractable so it doesn’t get in the way, and if it happens to break, it can easily be replaced.
