GoPro Hero 7 Vs Hero 8 the one you should pick
Overview on featured action camera
1. The color difference
In therm of color, the GoPro Hero 8 puts a little red in the colors which gives them more vibrance. As a result, it does help to see more detail in the images making them sharper. However, the Hero 7 is more true to real life color and the quality itself is not bad at all. One counter to the Hero 8‘s image quality is that the footage taken with this model is going to take more memory. At the end of the day, it comes down to personal preferences. It will depend on whether you want slightly more details or do you want more realism and more free spaces.
2. Wind noise
3. Night Footage
This one is a solid win for the GoPro Hero 7. When comparing night video footage of the 2, the GoPro Hero 8 looks almost blurry compared to the Hero 7. Plus, it seems like the stabilisation is scarified because the system is trying to capture the images with good quality. Which it fails at compared to the Go Pro Hero 7. So, one more reason to pick the Hero 7
5. The lens
In contrary to the GoPro Hero 7, the lens on the GoPro hero 8 is not replaceable. If you break it, you have to send the whole camera to GoPro so they can repair it. Which will probably cost a lot of money if it’s not on warranty. However, the Hero 7, you just need to buy a new one and you are good to go.
