On GoPro's new HERO8

It's the first time we've seen a hardware change which is pretty cool. - Shaun Rubenstein, GoPro Brand Manager

The fact that it doesn't have the cage on and it's just less to worry about to mount the camera is just a massive bonus. I think guys are very weight conscious now and they want to get to do a shot quick and not worry about adding all the different parts on to a camera. - Craig Kolesky, Action Photographer

On the hardware

The stabilisation 2.0 - it's now stabilised footage across all different modes, and then they've also within the stabilisation, you've heard some guys don't actually like using the hyper-smooth because it makes their mountain biking look too smooth. You're bombing down this crazy descend and it's like smooth sailing. Some guys want to show that, so you've got a trimmed down version - you don't have to the full hyper-smooth on. - Shaun Rubenstein, GoPro Brand Manager
