GoPro’s newest offering, the Hero 8 Black is now available in Nepal for purchase. The action camera can be purchased for NPR 51,500 in Nepal through Oliz Store.
The GoPro Hero 8 Black’s aesthetics resemble its previous offering — the Hero 7 Black but let it deceive you. This one has a new mounting system, a new software, and an ability to shoot Super Steady 4K 60fps videos, all thanks to the improved HyperSmooth digital image stabilization.
Let’s talk about the biggest addition of all — the “Mods”. The so-called “Mods” lets you add GoPro’s newest accessories like a microphone, an LED light, or even a flip-up screen for those who vlog.
But as far as the raw specs are concerned, the Hero 8 Black has a 12MP sensor with frameless mounting. The camera is capable of shooting 4K videos at 60fps with 100Mbps bitrate for the very first time. The camera also shoots slow-mo videos at 240fps in 1080p.
One of the few things that made the Hero 7 Black impressive was its HyperSmooth digital image stabilization feature which also makes its way to the Hero 8 Black. HyperSmooth 2.0 makes the footage impressively extra stable that blows the Hero 7 Black out of the water. This shows, GoPro really means business this time around.
All the stabilization on the improved HyperSmooth was made possible by the GP1 custom-made processing chip which is not the first time the company has used. There’s also the “Time Warp” feature which will automatically set the speed of the footage based on the camera.
The 12-megapixel sensor is capable of shooting RAW footage in a time-lapse and burst mode which was not possible before. Also, the HDR images shot from the camera will look much better as it no longer uses the third-party algorithms to combine multiple photos. It can also capture night-lapse and live stream videos at full HD.
The GoPro Hero 8 Black comes with 1,220mAh battery and up to 10-meter of waterproofing.
