With the GoPro HERO 8 Black, you can record videos during outdoor activities. In LiveBurstIn mode, you can record 1.5 seconds before and after an action moment, so you won't miss the climax. You can choose the best photo afterwards or share the video. Thanks to the HyperSmooth 2.0 image stabilization, your video footage is stable. The camera has 2 foldable mounting plates on the bottom. With these, you place the camera on a mount, so you don't need a mounting frame. You can record time lapse videos at night with the night lapse video function. This allows you to visualize the nightlife in your city or village. With TimeWarp 2.0, you can make timelapse recordings while you move. You can adjust the speed of the timelapse while you're filming, so you can highlight an event.

I had this camera for less than a week when it received a software update, which broke the camera. The camera would go black on the display from start up and the camera would freeze. After several reboots and formats and factory resets, it finally worked again for a couple days before restarting the same repeat issue with black camera feed on display and freezing. TRied looking up a solution on GoPro support pages, none of the solutions worked, there was no help from GoPro customer support. Ended up sending it back to Coolblue, they in turn sent it back to GoPro for returns, no repair, just refunded and had to re-order a new one.
Waiting to see if the new one has the same issues, new order arrives tomorrow.

I wanted to use the gopro as a webcam, I needed the sd card to update firmware to enable this functionality. The video for testing at 4k 30fps indoors was not great quality, but accessing the files on my laptop via Bluetooth and iPhone worked well. I will try camera outdoors soon I hope it will look awesome.
