GoPro Announces HERO8 Black Equipped With HyperSmooth 2.0 Video Stabilisation; Priced From MYR1879

Pre-orders will start from 10 October

GoPro has just announced the latest in their latest cameras with the HERO8 Black, Mods and MAX. Currently the main focus is on the HERO8 Black as more details, as well as special promotions, had been revealed for it.

The biggest attraction for the HERO8 Black is that it comes with the HyperSmooth 2.0 video stabilisation that will dramatically improve stabilisation - even better than the HyperSmooth 1.0! HyperSmooth 2.0 works in all resolutions and frame rates, features a new Boost mode and has in-app horizon leveling.

It also comes with a new TimeWarp 2.0 which features automatic rate adjustment and tap-control speed ramping. This enables the HERO8 Black sports four digital lenses to easily select a field of view, improve audio with enhanced wind suppression, customisable mode presets and a lighter, and a frameless design featuring folding mounting fingers. Other than that, expect the HERO8 to shoot in 4K60 and 1080p240, along with 8x slow-mo 1080p240 videos.

There's also the Media Mod, Display Mod and Light Mod which are modular accessories that deck HERO8 Black out with professional-grade audio, a front-facing display and enhanced lighting. These Mods pretty much enable users to transform their HERO8 Black into a production powerhouse.

Then there's the GoPro MAX which is a dual lens GoPro camera that maxes out on versatility. It comes as a waterproof, maximum-stabilised single lens HERO camera, dual lens 360 camera or next-level vlogging camera with its built-in front facing display and shotgun- mic audio capabilities. The MAX claims to deliver next-level, unbreakable video stabilisation with Max HyperSmooth. 

The MAX also features four digital lenses, including the new ultra-wide Max SuperView—GoPro’s widest field of view ever. Additional updates include in-camera 360 video and photo stitching plus keyframe-based editing of 360 content in the GoProapp.
