I've had every GoPro apart from the 4 and 7, but I did get a lend of a 7 for a day or two. The Hypersmooth was awesome... but I knew the 8 was close.Im looking to buy a hero 7 black in the next few weeks. I dont really want to spend any more than $400. If nobody minds me breifly hijacking this thread is there any reason you would advise against the 7. I have a hero 4 but am keen to try the hypersmooth thingy. I am not/nor am i trying to be any type of youtube vlog star. I just like making obnoxious videos and sending them to friends who then feel obliged to watch them.
Hypersmooth 2.0 was slightly better on the 8 and the bitrate was better, also had better 4K recording + new other shit.... the mounting wings are awesome BTW.
The price of the Hero8 is now at $499, the new Hero9 will probably be $599
I sold my Hero8 yesterday for $400 NO OFFERS, I had a queue for it. Could have listed for maybe $450 and had the barter shit, quick and clean is better.
Pic of what they got for $400, I didnt use any of the accessories, also came wait a 64gb card. Camera was used 2-3 times
