The GoPro HERO 8 Black - Chest Mount Kit is useful to record videos of various activities. You can mount the action camera on your chest, so your hands are free while cycling, skiing, or surfing. The adjustable straps allow you to adjust the Chesty to your body. To record for longer, the kit has an additional battery with Dual Charger and a 64GB memory card. You can make smooth recordings with the GoPro HERO 8 Black, thanks to the HyperSmooth 2.0 image stabilization. In LiveBurst mode, you can record 1.5 seconds before and after an action moment, so you don't miss the highlight. You can select the best picture or share the video on social media afterwards.

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.
