HERO8 Black | Hypersmooth & TimeWarp 2.0 | GoPro
A case dedicated to GoPro that arrived at the editorial department.
When opened, peripheral equipment was included in addition to “GoPro HERO8 Black”.
Contents include GoPro HERO8 Black, sleeve with lanyard, mini extension pole 'Shorty' with tripod, mounting buckle, thumbscrew, adhesive base mount, USB Type-C cable, sticker, instruction manual.
This time, the case, sleeve with lanyard, and Shorty were included as a set for rental, but these parts are usually sold separately when you purchase GoPro HERO8 Black.
Compared to a transportation IC card, it is about this size.
The LCD next to the lens displays the current shooting mode, the remaining capacity of the SD card, and the remaining battery power.

To charge, insert a USB Type-C cable into the port ...
The other end must be connected to a USB port or USB power adapter on the PC. The USB power adapter is sold separately.
Since GoPro HERO8 Black has no internal memory, you need to insert a microSD card.
GoPro HERO8 Black can also be attached to a helmet or bicycle by attaching it to an adhesive base mount.
The adhesive base mount has an adhesive tape on the back sheet.
To attach to an adhesive base mount, first prepare the included mounting buckle.
Pull out the built-in mount from the main unit ...
Insert into the mounting buckle.
Next, prepare a thumbscrew.
Insert the thumb screw and lightly tighten the screw.
When fixed, it looks like this.
When fixing to an adhesive base mount, raise the rubber part of the mounting buckle ...
Insert into adhesive base mount.
Push in the rubber part and attach the adhesive base mount to the one that suits your purpose.
When you turn on the GoPro HERO8 Black, it looks like this. By pressing the power button, you can switch between “Time Lapse” that allows you to shoot movies at double speed, “Video” that allows you to shoot movies, and “Photo” that allows you to take photos. Below is the screen when the time lapse mode is selected. Tap the red frame to change the shooting settings.
By default, “TimeWarp”, “Time Lapse” and “Night Lapse” are set, but you can customize the shooting settings by tapping “+”.
Time Lapse allows you to change mode, resolution, lens, speed and zoom
GoPro HERO7 Black mode “TimeWarp” was a function to set the speed manually, but GoPro HERO8 Black was upgraded to “TimeWarp 2.0”, and the speed was increased from 2 to 30 times based on movement, scene detection, and light intensity. It is set automatically & you can freely adjust the speed with a tap during shooting.
As with GoPro HERO7 Black, if you want to shoot from 2 to 30 times faster, set the mode to “Time Lapse” and select “2X”, “5X”, “10X”, “15X”, or “30X” for “Speed”. You can set it.
When shooting with 'TimeWarp', if the red frame is black, it will be shot at double speed. Tap to cancel double speed.
When it is blue, it is shot at the same magnification.
I recorded the state of running on a bicycle with 'TimeWarp'. The part where the playback speed of the movie is slow is shooting at the same size. For example, if you find a superb view while climbing or cycling, or if you are shooting a person who came to support you during a marathon competition, you can edit the scene you want to shoot at the same magnification with a single touch.
In “Video”, you can use “HyperSmooth 2.0” to shoot with reduced blur, and you can shoot by selecting from “Off”, “On”, “High” and “Boost”.
I tried to shoot a movie with 'HyperSmooth' boosted and turned off. Both are taking pictures on a bicycle. The difference is obvious. You can see that blurring is overwhelmingly reduced.
GoPro HERO8 Black can also be used in conjunction with the app “GoPro”. The GoPro app is compatible with iOS and Android.
