HERO8 Black (S$599)

The Mods version comes in three variants:

  • Media Mod (S$120) – delivers shotgun-mic directional audio performance and features two cold shoe mounts for additional accessories along with Type-C, HDMI and 3.5mm external mic adapter ports.
  • Display Mod (S$120) – a folding front- or rear-facing 1.90-inch display that attaches to the top of the Media Mod. It’s the perfect size for both framing up vlogging shots and folding down and out of the way when not in use.
  • Light Mod (S$75) – Waterproof to 33 feet (10 meters), wearable and gear-mountable, this Mod is the world’s most versatile light. It can brighten any scene, whether mounted to the Media Mod or attached to a GoPro mount, it’s rechargeable, and it comes complete with a diffuser to soften lighting when filming with HERO8 Black.

Mods enable users to transform their HERO8 Black into a production powerhouse.

GoPro MAX (S$740)

GoPro MAX is a dual-lens GoPro camera that maxes out on versatility—it’s like having three cameras in one. Use MAX as a waterproof, maximum-stabilized single-lens HERO camera, dual-lens 360 camera or next-level vlogging camera with its built-in front-facing display and shotgun-mic audio capabilities.

The app’s auto-generated video edit feature also has four new themes inspired by iconic GoPro edits from the company’s in-house media team. Choose between Adrenaline Seeker, Adventure Travel, Cinematic and Memory Curator and share directly to social media or store within the app as an editable draft to revisit.
