Gears from previous gopros

Does anybody know if the gears and batteries of the previous gopro heros (5/6) work at the new ones? (7/8)?!

Re: Gears from previous gopros

@snowydive42158, the mounting accessories of HERO5, HERO6 and HERO7 Black should work with the HERO8 Black except for the mounting Frame. The HERO8 Black has frameless mounting with built-in folding mounting fingers. Additionally, it has its own Protective Housing if you want to use the camera for deep water diving.

The HERO8 Black comes with an updated battery that supports the increased performance modes of 1080/240 and 2.7/120 with HyperSmooth on. Previous batteries will work with the HERO8 Black with limitations. Users may see performance issues when shooting in high performance modes. For this reason, we suggest only using the HERO8 Battery in the HERO8 Black camera. 

  • The Dual Battery Charger has not changed and will work with both types of batteries.

How about the lens? Like the polarized ones?
Does it fit from hero 5 to 7/8?

Re: Gears from previous gopros

@snowydive42158, if you're referring to the GoPro dive filters for the SuperSuit (HERO5, HERO6, HERO7 Black), these filters will not be compatible with the Protective Housing for the HERO8 Black.

Additionally, filters are no longer available on gopro.com. However, you may still find these filters at various online retailers.
