    GoPro has been making continuous improvements to their line of action cams, and the highlight of this newest unit is stabilized 4K footage.  Its HyperSmooth 2 technology uses in-camera artificial intelligence to smooth out the action to the point that it almost looks like it was riding on a gimbal.  It also can do automatic horizon levelling, and it’s Boost mode smooths out footsteps from running and jogging.  The nice thing is that the stabilization works at all resolutions and frame rates.  Its Timewarp mode lets you do time lapse shooting and to adjust the frame rate in the middle of the shot.  Some other nice features?  A built-in 2″ touch screen, GPS tagging, improved audio, WiFi and voice control, and live streaming.  It can shoot 4K at 60 frames per second, and HD at an impressive 240FPS.  Modern manufacturers have taken to adding features to their products after they’ve been sold, and GoPro recently enabled the Hero8 for use as a high quality webcam simply through downloading software off their website.  Although generally only used for video, they’ve upped their still game too, with 12MP high dynamic range photos.  Rather than the two “forks” sticking out of the body like on a traditional GoPro, on the 8 they fold into the body until you need them.  The camera body itself is waterproof down to 33 feet, but if you need to go deeper or anticipate the camera experiencing rough handling, we include the protective housing in our kit which increases the immersion depth to 196 feet.

    Having the camera is only half the battle though, as you need to outfit it to make it sing.  Every MidCan GoPro comes in with a nice selection of accessories.  Included in the day rate are: The waterproof housing, 3 batteries and a charger that can charge 2 batteries simultaneously, a 128GB microSD card and a card reader, a GoPro suction cup mount with swivel, 2 expendable sticky mounts, a mini mafer clamp and a small adjustable arm to go between it and the camera, and a high output USB charger with two outputs.  That’s a lot of extra gear for 50 dollars!
