There have been rumours for a while, but now GoPro has officially announced the new GoPro Hero8 Black. Don’t get too excited, though, not much has changed in the camera itself since its predecessor. It does see a bump in max bitrate, though, going from the Hero7’s 78Mbps to 100Mbps for 4K footage. There’s also a new GoPro MAX 360° camera, follow up to the not-terribly-popular GoPro Fusion.
It looks like GoPro has gone with a complete redesign for the new GoPro Hero 8, expected to be announced at some point next month. Leaked photos posted to Photo Rumors show what looks like a rather impressive looking built-in microphone, and even a hotshoe mount for attaching various accessories.
