15 years ago, GoPro cameras redefined the way we captured photos and videos, and took filming to another level. What wasn’t possible two decades ago is possible now. Go pro cameras can withstand the rain, snow, sun and even the deepest layers of water. Just check out YouTube – every multi-angular photo or video must definitely be a work of a GoPro camera. Now, with the release of the all-new GoPro Hero 8, the company’s motto of “enabling people to share their passions whether they’re fueled by adrenaline or artistry,” stands even more fulfilled. GoPro Hero 8 has been recently launched in India, which is why you might want to check out its price and specifications.
A frameless design for maximum convenience
GoPro Hero 8’s frameless design doesn’t require a separate mount for housing the camera. With built-in foldable loops at the bottom of the camera, you don’t have to spend time trying to find suitable cover frames. The camera is waterproof (up to 33ft) and you can also swap SD cards and batteries faster because of its portable design. The front lens is made up of impact resistant Gorilla Glass.
What’s hot? Hyper-smooth 2.0 video stabilization, of course!
GoPro Hero 8 captures all frame rates and resolutions thanks to an upgraded hyper smooth 2.0 video stabilization that automates the stability of surroundings. That means, you could ski down a hill at any angle or speed, and Hero 8 will stabilize and capture scenes with high-end clarity. Additionally, the TimeWarp 2.0 automatically adjusts speed rate and switches between slow to real-time to fast movements with a single tap.
4 lenses for optimum field of view control
Hero 8 has a 12MP camera sensor and four lenses – Narrow, distortion-free linear, wide and SuperView – for a wider field of view control. It has several modes including a Liveburst mode, Night Lapse video that has a resolution range of 4K, 2.7K, 1440p or 1080p. It captures videos between 1080p – 4K fps and can also capture customized presets.
GoPro Hero 8 Modular accessories
GoPro Hero 8 has a media mod in the form of 3 speakers and a built-in directional mic (with a 3.5mm mic port) that improves audio and cancels unwanted noise (even suppressing forceful winds). It has a front-facing display mod and a 200 lumen Light mod for enhanced lighting. The device is powered by a 1220mAh battery for up to 6 hours of power.
GoPro Hero 8 is now available in the market and is priced at Rs 36,500. Again, it is perfect for vlogging and filming and is a must-buy if you’re someone who loves to travel. Considering the premium features packed in the camera, it is value for money. If GoPro Hero 8 is beyond your current budget, and you still want to purchase it, you can consider opting for a consumer durable loan. Tata Capital provides loans that are easily repayable with well-spaced EMI payment options.
