The 10 Million Dollar Question

I'm going to ask the hard question that no one apparently wants to ask.

 

Preface: I have owned every GoPro ever made, including still owning and using 5, 6 and 7 blacks, and quite honestly, I'm more than a little perturbed. 

 

I also have an Osmo Action. More a curiosity purchase than a need, but I'm a gearhead. Given.

 

As I understand it, the Hero 8 Black has the same processor, same lens (not the cover but the lens itself), and the same sensor as the Hero 7 Black I already own.

 

Most all of the features of the Hero 8 Black could most certainly be added to the Hero 7 Black via a simple firmware upgrade. DJI has almost transformed the Action since its initial release. They didn't replace it. They enhanced what they already sold as a value add.

 

If GoPro isn't willing to continue to improve the products we have already bought from them by offering fair upgrades, why should we continue to support them? More importantly, why don't they just UPGRADE the Hero 7 Black with the subset of features they can as an offering of good faith (and because it's the right thing to do anyway) to their loyal customers?

 

If I'm wrong here, tell me why. What GoPro should do is what I said above so that when the next real revolution comes along, we will all support them and buy it instead of allienating a loyal following. I know they're in the business of selling cameras. I get that, but most of us that already own the 7s aren't going to immediately buy the 8 anyway. There's no need. I don't think they get that. Somebody needs to tell them this.

 

Throw us a bone, bro.

GoPro is tanking hard, the 8 is just a desperate attempt to start making a profit again.

 

I doubt they'll be around in 5 years.

 

Their stock is nearly worthless now.

I understand that. I'm not oblivious to it, but continuing to piss off its most loyal customers isn't helping that cause either. I can't be the only one who this pissed off nor the only Hero 7 owner that figured this out.

Bump because this deserves to not be ignored.

Re: The 10 Million Dollar Question

First, it is my understanding that one of the reasons GoPro had to change the design and increase the size of the HERO8 was for better thermals to prevent overheating. In doing so, they were also able to overclock the GP1 processor to get improved performance (which is also why the new battery is needed). The older batteries work, but enhanced modes can suffer due to them but being able to give the boost in power when the processor demands it.

Second, your whole point of, "why should we continue to support them" kinda falls apart on itself. If you don't upgrade your camera, you're not really providing much support. If GoPro just sold you a camera and kept updating it to the same specs as each new generation of camera, then where would your motivation be then? You do understand that it's not a greed thing, they are an actual company, and companies are naturally expected to try and make money.

It's not a 10 million dollar question or even a $1 question. It's a sour grapes question. Go look through the manual for your GoPro camera. It doesn't matter if it's a HERO3, HERO4, HERO5/6/7,... does the camera you own so what it says in the manual? Where there promises of future upgrades to your camera? Because, I own just about every GoPro camera and they do exactly what was advertised and promised.

GoPro doesn't owe you anything more than what they advertised when you purchased the camera. GoPro is a very generous and caring company toward their customers, even when they are impetulant "pissed off" children throwing tantrums that they don't have the latest and greatest toy.

"GoPro is tanking hard, the 8 is just a desperate attempt to start making a profit again."

The 8 is just an attempt to make money??? Wow, brilliant deduction! I suppose they could have accomplished that goal so much better if they updated the HERO7 Black to have the same features as the HERO8! Amazing business plan you got there.

HERO7 Black is still an amazing camera. If you don't want to upgrade, don't. If you want the best stabilization of any small compact cameras (plus other added features), you're going to have to purchase the newest camera.

..or just wait a couple of months for Osmo Action 2.

Once again, what was the story about Karma and Mavic?

Re: The 10 Million Dollar Question

@wilsonflyer   GoPro did it again.   GoPro, GoPro, GoPro..   

 

DJI Osmo Action I also own, DJI can not even get a  adapter out, had to use CYNOVA and  same story people are crying.  To much demand for things.

 

  the keyword is Demand. and that said we will never see it happen.

 

For what  the above posters said , stick around the site Repeated issues on the Hero 8. .

 

Enjoy the fun I had wit hteh Hero 7 and OSmo Action can't aford the same camera  I like the interface and that I will ahve to decide what my future brings Me.
