I haven't seen a single review online that didn't mention the fact that the GoPro Hero 8 does not have a HDMI out.  GoPro also didn't mention that the camera doesn't do the following:

 

1:  It doesn't make coffee in the morning.

2:  It doesn't clean your house.

3:  It won't walk the dog.

4:  It won't make day trading decisions for you.

5:  It doesn't come with an electric powered plane.

6:  It doesn't come with a boat.

 

The list goes on...

Gopro said they cut cost, no one pays attention.

As @fishycomics  shows, Gopro lists what it does have.  It's up to people to actually read that and see what it does have.  If it doesn't mention something then assume that it doesn't have it rather than assume that it does have it because it doesn't say it hasn't got it.

 

There seems to be two types of people out there who shouldn't be allowed to buy things online. 

 

There's the group who buy something for features that it doesn't have, doesn't claim to have and never said it would have then complain that it doesn't have it.

 

Then there's those people who buy something to perform a role that it wasn't designed to do, is nothing near to what it was designed to do, was never advertised as being suitable to perform and yet thet still complain that it cant do the thing they want and expect the manufacturer to correct it ASAP.

Very well said and very well put @jay-ell and @fishycomics!  It was because of doing careful research, reading the reviews and knowing what was included and what wasn't included with the camera that I didn't buy a GoPro Hero Max.  It didn't come with Paige Lillian to dance around on the roof of my house (even though she was in the video).............   so disappointing.Smiley Sad

so what you are saying is you took your time to research and the responsibility to know what the product did or didnt have in its feature lists? WOW interesting and facinating concept. One takes the time to know what he is buying and not blaming others for what you dont take responsibility to learn on your own. PURE GENIOUS Irishman...  The OP of this post could take a bit of that advice to the bank couldnt he.

Boy... what a bunch of unhelpful posts. I agree with the OP. I was also shocked to find that the Hero 8 did not have an HDMI out. While I don't expect it to make coffee I would like to connect it to a switcher or external recorder. 

 

The good news is that there is a Media Mod bolt-on option that does provide this function AND if you all took the time verus being unhelpful sods you might have gave the OP some usful info.

Cheers Boy'Os

LoL.....  Yes the real world is harsh yes the real world doesnt give you a gold star sticker like they did in the world unicorns of everyone gets a trophy contest and everyone is equal. Yes when the op posts such ridiculous comments and post there are poeople out there to remind you how bad that is. "Help" well I dont think there is much anyone can do for the OP we dont make the product we cant give him that fairy tale unicorn that works 100% perfectly that life has disappointments. Its a free country he can search his quest on another place if he sees fit. The world doesnt owe you squat the world doesnt owe you give you this information in a sugar coated way. So please by all means go find a soothing oitment for that touchy hole that is burning right now.
