I currently have a Hero 7 Black on my chin and have been watching a lot of you guys with multiple cameras and getting new angles to spruce up your footage. I was going to get a 360 but decided against it for the time being but will soon. I ended up finding a Hero 8 black on sale so purchased that. As some of you know i lost my last rides footage due to wrong type of SD card in the camera, have that straight as well for Mondays ride. Excited.

Anyone check out there gopro case and power cable to keep your GoPro waterproof while using external battery on helmet ? Mine arrived and it looks great.

I’m going to use the Hero 8 for a time handlebars to get some shots back at me on the trails. And also will use it for stationary shots on the small tripod of our group coming around a corner or a small jump etc.

That is a really great setup. I use a modified dive case and run the cable through the little hole I made. So far, it has not failed. Cost is about the same as the case you are look at getting if you use a GoPro branded case.

Plus, if I drop my 8 again, the dive case will keep some of the shock from cracking the back glass.

However, the case you are looking at looks nicer and may be better because these cameras get HOT when recording some of the higher res/frame rates. I tested mine in about 100* F with no problem but who knows how long it will last.

I brought a GoPro Max but not been able to use it on my bike yet. I have changed out the door for the ulanzi one that has a cutout for the charging cable, thought this a good option if I want to use a power bank instead of lots of batteries.

I use my Hero 8 on the helmet and my Hero 7 on the bars looking back. The 8 has better image stabilization and wind noise reduction so its better on the helmet for my setup. I love both cameras, very glad I went with GoPro and not another brand.

Thanks for link to those accessories mate, santa is going to be busy. I also have considered the 360 route but reckon will try get a good deal on a 7 or 8 on run to Christmas.

I have a Hero 8 on my helmet, but I've been wanting a second camera for views of me while I talk ... but I really want to find one lightly used for about $200 USD... so far no luck :(
