Gifts for the Holidays: Outdoor & Travel Edition

Sometimes for the holidays all you want to do is get out of the house and make memories. Whether it be just getting outdoors or if you want to pack up a bag and go visit family and friends. And sometimes you have family and friends that travel alot or do a lot of outdoor activities that you need to find gifts for. Well you've come to the right place to find a few ideas for both!

Go beyond the next level with the GoPro HERO8 Black. With unshakable HyperSmooth 2.0 stabilization and built-in mounting, 8 is the one. HERO8 Black is revved up with serious capture skills, but it’s still a cinch to use. We tweaked the algorithm on the GP1 chip to deliver epic new features like HyperSmooth 2.0 with Boost and TimeWarp 2.0. And with its ready-for- anything exterior, HERO8 Black is still tough as nail.

• Digital Lenses
Now it’s easier to get the best view of whatever you’re doing. Tap through four lenses: Narrow, distortion-free Linear, Wide and SuperView.
• HyperSmooth 2.0
A radical enhancement to HyperSmooth, HyperSmooth 2.0 now has multiple levels of stabilization—including Boost—and game-changing in-app horizon leveling.
• TimeWarp 2.0
Get that surreal TimeWarp effect you love—now with automatic speed selection. Or just tap to speed it up or slow it down.
• SuperPhoto + Improved HDR
Crank up the contrast, kill the blur and shred. The revamped algorithm delivers badass action shots with detail you never thought possible.
• LiveBurst
LiveBurst mode captures 1.5 seconds before and after you hit the shutter—so you can pick the perfect shot from 90 still images. Or, share a 3-second 4K video clip.
• Night Lapse Video
Harness that nighttime magic in 4K, 2.7K, 1440p or 1080p, and watch the scene come alive with epic detail.
• Rugged + Waterproof
When you wanna play rough, HERO8 Black is always game. Plus, it’s completely waterproof down to 33ft (10m).
• GoPro App
Capture. Edit. Share. Repeat. The GoPro app automatically creates awesome edits and makes it easy to share them with the world.
• You call the shots.
Go hands-free with 14 voice commands like “GoPro, start recording.” Or wake the camera up with “GoPro, turn on.”
