We’ve known for some time now that a new GoPro Hero 8 and a possible GoPro Max 360 action camera will come to market before the end of the year. Today this was confirmed by GoPro in the form of a short video shared on its social media accounts.
The GoPro Hero 8 and GoPro Max are coming out this October
Hopefully, the late launch means GoPro is working on a great camera to ensure it keeps up with offerings from other companies like DJI’s Osmo Action.
The social media post from GoPro shared a link to a YouTube live stream to watch the event along with the hashtag “ThisIsAction”.
We hope to see a few new or improved features from the GoPro Hero 7 including the new GP2 chip, improved HyperSmooth stabilization, slower slow-motion and the usual improvements to photo and video.
In a previous DroneDJ post, we shared images of what could be the new GoPro Hero 8 and GoPro Max 360. The GoPro Hero 8, from the photos, looks to have a new cage-style accessory which would allow for accessories such as a light or external display to be attached directly to the camera via built-in cold shoe mounts.
In the video share on GoPro’s social media, there was no hint at or mention of the GoPro Max 360 action camera. Earlier on we saw a listing sharing photos of the unreleased 360 camera, so let’s hope we see it released at the event alongside the GoPro Hero 8.
