Media Mod & Display Mod

[ Edited ]

I am just wondering if the Media Mod and the Display Mod will also work with the Hero7 Black? I just bought the Hero7 for vlog-style videos, and after learning about the Hero8 Black I might return it and wait for the Hero8 if the mods will only be able to work with the 8 instead of the 7. If anyone has any input please let me know!

Hello @nicolerose21. The Media Mod can only work with the HERO8 Black. The Light Mod, however, can be used as an independent mod - it can be used for any GoPro camera as a separate accessory.

Yes. @foggyrange40015

You can charge the camera while attached to the Media Mod.

See https://gopro.com/en/us/shop/mounts-accessories/media-mod/AJFMD-001.html

 

Thanks!

Re: Media Mod & Display Mod

I am new to GoPro and received the 8 for Christmas.  I have been having a lot of fun with it.  However, I recently received the light mod for my 8.  You mentioned using it as a stand alone or attaching it to camera.  However I see no way to attach and using it alone is annoying.  I have the media mod on the way and from what I can tell from images is that there are shoe mounts for light mod??  In the meantime while I await media mod, how do I attach light mod.  Help appreciated!

Hello @laran60. You are correct, the Media Mod comes with two pairs of cold show mounts to attach the Light Mod onto. Unless there is a customized mount for the Light Mod (prior to a Media Mod), it has to be handheld.

That magnetic swivel clip works GREAT for the light mod. Been using it for a month now. Love it.
