“It’s been 15 years since the first GoPro camera, and from the start, we’ve been about enabling people to share their passions whether they’re fueled by adrenaline or artistry,” Nick Woodman, Founder, and CEO, GoPro, said in a statement. “Hero 8 Black, the Mods and Max redefine what’s possible with a camera,” Woodman added.
The Hero 8 Black features ‘HyperSmooth’ 2.0 video stabilization and works in all resolutions and frame rates, features a new Boost mode and has in-app horizon leveling.

The device also features a color display on one side. Similar to the GoPro Hero 8 Black, the new Max also offers support for features like TimeWarp and HyperSmooth.
