Re: Hero 8 Black and Karma Grip

That I did know. It’s the ports that they mislead customers into believing it’s the same. The batteries from the 7 don't work either yet they fit perfectly. Gone is the connection to plug it directly into a TV also which I used all the time. I’d rather have the 7 by far.

they never mislead anyone, they always clear its bigger than the Hero 7 (even I knew that before it hit the shelves). Does sound like the 7's better for you, but still need to research before you spend money then start blaming everyone else

Re: Hero 8 Black and Karma Grip

I too just realized that my 8 will not work with my Karma grip gimbal. I do mountain bike videos and purchased the karma gimbal worked perfect with my 5 and 7. I even have the expensive battery extension cable. Even with the stabilization of the 7 you needed the gimbal. I think my biggest concern is that for loyal customers (this is my 4th GoPro) the GoPro accessories are expensive. So if they are going obsolete an $400 investment in their own product, they should sell them at a lower price. I’m going riding with the 8. So we’ll see how good it really is.
