Q: How long can this film for? Also, how long does the battery last?

submitted by Sara - 2 years ago
  • A: How long you can record for depend on the battery life, the settings you're using when your record, and the amount of memory on your SD card. For battery life, you should get between 45 minutes and 80 minutes of recording time, depending on the resolution and frame rates you choose. The HERO8 Black can also be powered externally for longer recordings, or the battery can be swapped if you have a spare.

Q: Is the HERO 8 autofocus?

submitted by Betz - 2 years ago
  • A: GoPro cameras are designed to keep everything - near and far - in focus all the time so you don't get a blurry shot. Because of that, there is no autofocus function built into the camera since it's not needed with a GoPro.

Bought this camera in January of 2021. Believed it was worth the investment since the brand was well known, figured it would last a long time, and it had good reviews for the most part. Fast forward to June of 2022, a year and a half later, and the camera does not work. Plugged it in to charge one night, the next morning, the camera was completely dead. I've been on the phone with GoPro support multiple times, tried all trouble shooting options offered & nothing worked. They said it's a manufacturing defect, but can't replace the camera because it's outside the 1 year manufacturing warranty. They aren't willing to do anything to remedy the situation, so figured I'd warn people against this product. I understand we could have purchased a bigger warranty, but I stupidly assumed this product was a quality camera that would last a long time (considering the price $$). Turns out I was wrong. Do not waste your money on these cameras.

2 brand new out of the box would not charge or turn on.... 3rd one was dropped from literally less the 3 feet above the ground and just stopped working. Gopro is not an action cam anymore. Stay away from GoPro. The new Dji action cam is way better

Awful product. Battery only lasts for 1.5 hours. When it’s charging, you can’t do anything with your footage; you can’t download your footage nor access the camera. It overheats so easily in the mildest of weather. You have to buy multiple batteries. Don’t buy this if you need shoot something on a deadline. I’ve missed two deadlines because the product either take hours to download, share, or load 60 second 4K videos or the battery is dead out of nowhere once I’m at my laptop. Returning and buying a DJI.

gopro app connectivity issues

Lola - 2 years ago
i bought this spontaneously around back friday. maybe my gopro was defective (it didn't seem to be), but when i would try and connect the gopro to the gopro app, it would say there was an update. so i updated the software from the app, tried to look at the pictures i had taken and it said "error needs update", which i had already done. not sure if other ppl are having the same issue regarding connectivity issues
