Getting stable, watchable footage is the goal for every action-oriented camera, and GoPro’s latest model truly delivers in that regard. Using their brand new “HyperSmooth 2.0” tech, you’re getting splendid image stabilization in a camera that only costs $399.99.
Over at The Verge, reviewer Brent Rose gave the new hardware a considerable score of 8/10. The lack of a removable lens is a bit of a concern for the more extreme among us, but the improved image stabilization and the mod functionality make this a wonderful device. In fact, he even goes as far as to say “… HyperSmooth 2.0 actually is approaching gimbal level.”
Similarly, Scott Gilbertson awarded an 8/10 score for this upcoming camera in his review on Wired. The lack of a removable lens was a sticking point here as well, but he calls out the cage-free design and significantly improved software as reasons to jump onto the Hero 8 Black bandwagon.
The GoPro Hero 8 Black is scheduled to ship in late October.
