Hero 8 Black will be available from October 20 at a price of Rs 20. 36,500. This time, GoPro is not launching the Hero 8 Silver or Hero 8 White version of the camera, as it did last year. Mods for Hero 8 will be available for pre-order in December. These include the Light Mod for $ 49.99 (about Rs 3,540); Display mod for $ 79.99 (approx. Rs. 5,680), and Media mod (about Rs. 5,680) for $ 79.99.
The second camera is the long-awaited upgrade to the GoPro Fusion, now simply called GoPro Max. Like the Hero 8 Black, it also has 360 degree audio capture thanks to the presence of foldable mounting finders, dual lenses for 360 video and photo capture, and the presence of six microphones. But like Fusion, instead of being a one-way pony, GoPro Max allows you to use only one lens at a time, so it can be used as a traditional action camera or 360-degree camera depending on the activity Can. you are doing. The GoPro Max goes on sale late on October 24 for Rs. 47,000.
The Hero 8 Black has a slightly more compact body than the Hero 7 Black; For better audio, there is a front-facing microphone and a single flap on the right side with a microSD card slot, battery and USB Type-C port. The camera can now also be used for professional blogging as the Media Mod has a built-in shotgun microphone and secondary display and two cold shoe mounts for LED fill-lighting.

The Light Mod is waterproof up to 10m and helps illuminate the scene or your face when soaked in low light.
The big attraction is HyperSmooth 2.0 which promises smoother video than even the Hero 7 Black. There is a boost mode, which prepares the frame for even more aggressive stabilization. The interface has been slightly changed for easier access. Now you can easily switch between different areas or can ‘digital lenses’ as GoPro calls it; Create up to 10 presets for different types of activity that you usually capture; Horizon leveling and TimeWarp 2.0 for a cinematic effect allow you to vary the speed of hyperlapse video when you need it, just by touching the display.
The mounting fingers are now built-in, meaning you don’t have to bother about the plastic cage to attach the Hero 8 Black to GoPro accessories. The camera is waterproof up to 10 meters; Can shoot 4K video up to 60fps; Slow motion video at 1080p to 240fps; live streaming; Can recognize voice control and voice commands.
The GoPro Max is definitely the most interesting of the two because not only is it smaller than the older Fusion, it lets you use it as a regular GoPro or 360-degree camera. Is waterproof to a maximum of 5 meters; Built-in GPS; Can live stream up to 1080p; And can shoot up to 5.6K resolution 360-degree footage at 30fps.
