Hero 8 Black, a model with a design similar to its predecessors, but that
now has Mods, a system that allows adding a
microphone, an LED light and an additional screen. With a base price of 399 dollars, this new generation of accessories seeks to provide a practical solution for content producers who choose this type of all-terrain equipment.
These accessories, called Mods, allow the simultaneous incorporation of the GoPro Hero 8 Black with a directional microphone, a compact system of LED lights and an additional screen that allows viewing the contents registered by the camera. In detail, the Media Mod, priced at 79 dollars, adds to the Hero 8 Black a frame with an integrated microphone, next to a USB Type-C port, an HDMI connector and 3.5-millimeter connectors, in addition to the space necessary to hook the other two Mods.
For its part, the Display Mod has a 1.9-inch screen and is the ideal accessory to take a selfie or to keep track of video productions. The new accessory line is completed with the Light Mod, a 200 lumens LED lighting system. Both the screen and LED lights have their own batteries, which operate independently of the Hero 8 Black camera.
