    Is GoPro 8 any good?

    • +1 vote

      Probably 😆

      Overall, DJI Osmo Action is much better.

      I've been a bit of a Gopro fan since they first came on the market, I've had a few and I've recorded a crazy amount of footage on them, the 8 gives me the shits though, I doubt I'll buy another gopro after this…

      The 8 gives great footage but the battery life is fairly poor and at times it will flatten batteries for no apparent reason, throw a fresh battery in and with no use a couple of hours later it's as flat as a tack.. . Also, using Quick-Capture (one button recording), it often locks up and wont turn on, you have to remove and reinsert the battery before it will turn on.. It also loses the time quite often and you dont know until you turn it on with the 'on' button rather than the one button record button, so you get home from a trip and find every file has the same date and time on it (I use the file time to find footage fast by comparing that time to time on my recorded GPS tracks)… Silly little bugs that are a pain at times…

      I may have got a random dud but gopro seem to have more than their fair share of issues, the amount they cost they should be fairly bug free… I purchased it when they first came out in Oct 2019 for a big 2020 trip that was cancelled, it was out of warranty by time I realized it had these bugs so I'm kinda stuck with it now… If I had purchased it from a Aussie company I would have pushed for ACL warranty but I bought it direct from Gopro and they just blew me off when I contacted them about the issues…

      Some random Hero8 clips, I tend to record at 2.7k 50fps, and none of these clips have had any post-processing, straight off the camera and uploaded, or joined and uploaded::
      Motorcycle: https://youtu.be/-f1dQHViyuc
      Flying: https://youtu.be/OCAmSPSxotQ
      Hiking: https://youtu.be/UZkeJjUd2z0
      It does fairly well in low light & shitty conditions: https://youtu.be/3UbDvxD70wk?t=310

      Edit: and $299 is a nice price…

      •  

        Motorcycle footage definitely looks well stabilised. I'm torn whether to upgrade from the good old hero 4 silver. The stabilisation seems to be the biggest upgrade but your gripes make it less enticing.

        •  

          I only run the Hypersmooth stabilization, I dont use the higher "boost" stabilization… With the boost stabilization head movement tends to look a bit robotic and the ground tends to get a corrugated look to it, you lose a lot of detail in the foreground I feel..

          This is with Boost stabilization on, (only 30fps though)
          https://youtu.be/55o-sD7HlE4?t=370

          My gripes may be isolated, or faults in the first batch… If you buy one test it out well ASAP, if you have any issues just send it back…

    Thought spider man was an interactive movie before noticing it's for ps5

    Going to buy one so I can sell on scum tree and make $9 profit after rejecting 100 different low ball offers and explaining things I already posted in the ad to 100 more people….. easy money.

      Yea 5% swap gift card on ShopBack

        Thanks 👍

    If only Ratchet & Clank: Rift Apart $39.

    Got my hero 5 for $199, is it time to bump it up hmmm

    •  

      Unless you're Amish, I'd say yes.

  •  

    I'm happy to spend the $500+ on the Hero 9. But is the 8 a better option To that price?

    • -1 vote

      no.

      if money is not an issue and you love a buggy action camera, Hero 9 is the best.

    • -2 votes

      have you watched a comparison video on youtube?
      and after that you can decide if the $200+ extra is justifiable by you.

      But for the money, and for most people's use case. Go pro 8 is a much much better deal.

    Add: Sodastream sparkling water maker for $19

      Would make it a duplicate listing if its added here, so cannot really do that

    I wonder if Amazon will match the $39 price too for Spiderman Miles Morales..?

      First drop for most sort after items is about adding to cart and praying. Second drop is about already having it in your cart and praying.

      • +1 vote

        Certainly that was the case for the airpods.

        In recent weeks things have been more sedate, even the post popular items have lasted over a minute.

        The other items, such as that 32 inch 720p Tv, you had up to a week to made the decision!

        •  

          Yep it’s always good to be prepared though. Spider-Man may be a little quicker but probably still not too bad.

          I suspect the TV lasted a lot long due to the $40 delivery fee

          •  

            @MBix:

            I suspect the TV lasted a lot long due to the $40 delivery fee

            And not many wanting 32".

            I think spider-man will be an easy get. The game often sells for $60ish on eBay new, which means there's no market for people trying to flip them for a quick buck.

            That said, no harm going in fast and hard to secure a copy.

      From past ninja.buy eBay Plus deals (Apple Watch 3), items were Grey Stock.

      So I'm assuming they are waiting for delivery from overseas.

      •  

        Can we cancel?

      • +1 vote

        Oh no! Is this true? Their eBay profile says:

        "Welcome to one of Ebay’s leading Megastores in Australia. We distribute genuine AU stock and commit to your satisfaction with local warranty and prompt support. One stop shop for all you need!"

        • +1 vote

          Where did you find this?

          I went to check and it reads like this below. The difference is "genuine stock IN AU"

          "Welcome to one of Ebay’s leading Megastores in Australia. We distribute genuine stock in AU and commit to your satisfaction with local warranty and prompt support. One stop shop for all you need!"

          Did they just change it?

          Technically, Genuine stock IN AU could mean grey imports… grey imports ARE genuine.

          • +1 vote

            @jecec: Yes - they changed it! I did a copy and paste of the exact wording from eBay when I posted my earlier comment.

            When I clicked on the seller name, it was the blurb just to the right of their name and picture, above the feedback ratings. I've checked it again now and they changed it to the wording you have above.

            Now I wish I'd taken a screenshot of the original page. I agree the revised wording changes the meaning. And the timing of the change makes me think they are going to provide grey imports for the GoPro.

            So disappointing.

              @ilovemangoes: Wtf man. That's so dodgy!!! We should bring more attention to this!

      • +1 vote

        Well if that's the case the folks at eBay should be on the case, pretty dodgy to advertise an eBay Plus promo on this scale without spelling out it's grey stock, already bad enough having to wait for May delivery!!

    Devastated thought ps4 Spiderman MM was on sale too.

    Sick. I got one even though it took me 3 minutes messing around with shit ebay app and a new account to use 30 days eBay plus trial

    Any recommendations for accessories packs? Plenty of options on eBay but most seem to cheap to be true…

    • +1 vote

      Don't worry, you got more than 1 month to shop around for accessories and even have it delivered before your actual go pro 8 arrives.

      Also want to know a good pack.

    Took only about 5 minutes for the first 250 GoPro to go out of stock 😮

      not a lot of love for the go pro8 for some reason.
      I have no use for it nor am I going anywhere interesting to use it.
      still got one though 😶

    Reckon the gopro is that much better than a good smartphone with OIS these days? Maybe not as rugged,

      Horses for courses, they're both suited to different situations…

    •  

      Bigger sensor. Makes all the difference in low light conditions, which means indoors, not just night time.

    •  

      Considering everything else you use your smartphone for, I wouldn't risk my phone in most situations I'd want to use the gopro for. Haha.

    Guys… any concerns around this beiong grey import, non AU stock?

    I'm contemplating cancelling my order.

    • +1 vote

      I do suspect it is, based on the sneaky wording in the seller profile and the comments on the previous deal. Bit of a surprise to me that ebay promotes such things.

      Not happy about it but the person I bought it for doesn't mind.

      • +1 vote

        I suspect this is the case too, just like the apple $99 / $249 airpods/airpods Pro ebay promoted late last year.

        •  

          Please check your facts. The AirPods and AirPod Pros were all Australian stock.

          •  

            @Sainter4Life: Yeah I think it was the ipads last year that were not Australian stock but the seller agreed to give 2 years warranty anyway so it made no difference.

    •  

      What is the difference between the grey import and Australian stock?

      •  

        Local support predominantly.

        If something goes wrong with it, you really need to send it back to grey importer for repairs etc.
        There will be hundreds on eBay if they are grey imports I guess

    •  

      Can always choose to return it if it's actually grey import stock

      • +2 votes

        Checked with the seller, it's grey import. Only 1 year warranty. So bad…

        •  

          Doesn't that fall afoul of OZ laws?

        •  

          What is the warranty for a gopro normally? nabbed one of these also.

          •  

            @saleseeker: I'm curious as well.
            Honestly, I'll prolly keep mine, as I need a camera for my motorcycle, for the daily commutes as a insurance video just in case.

        •  

          From the website

          GOPRO WARRANTY:
          GoPro products are guaranteed against manufacturing defects one (1) year from the original date of purchase.

          •  

            @strike1: So to be clear, if grey stock, we don't get a 12month gopro warranty? but instead a 12 month warranty with the seller? I haven't really had any issues with my previous 3 gopros (which were all second hand… ) so not expecting anything significant here but keen to hear what the concerns are (if any) from those with experience.

            • +1 vote

              @saleseeker: Sorry mate, I am not sure how warranty works for a grey product.

              But to confuse you further, as per this comment in an earlier deal, it seems that even buying directly from GoPro has issues and local retailers are more reliable.

            •  

              @saleseeker: I wasn’t sure about the grey product either so I checked with the seller. It’s a genuine GoPro unit that will be imported from overseas. The warranty is through the seller and they will be the ones who will liaise with the manufacturer regarding the warranty. As mentioned above, it’s one year from the purchase date so for this the expected delivery is in May sometime so that will eat into that period a bit. For the price, I’m probably happy with that and will keep mine.

              •  

                @linkbrokemypots: Thanks for following it up.
                Will be keeping mine to use for riding. Now just get the motorcycle gear to go along with it

              •  

                @linkbrokemypots: So do you know if the charger is Australian and software is the same as Australian?

                •  

                  @Jklaro: There's a difference in software?
                  Charger don't really care as I have enough chargers lying around

                  •  

                    @he11bent: Not sure. I'm just thinking of resale. If you can tell the gopro is not Australian.

                    •  

                      @Jklaro: I doubt they'd be different software, I'm not too fussed about resale as I'm keeping mine.
