Default 8k GO Pro Hero. Resolve editor, colot grader, special effects.

Read talk about a gopro hero with 8k video, 4x tje pixel resolution of 4k. Don't get too excited, it is likely to be only at 15 frames a second, but it means we may get a descent 4kp50/60 mode and it will be better for photos.

It might mean a higher data rate available to 4k and 2k modes. So 100mb/s+ datarates might be possible.

Now, there is a free version of a professional color grading program called davinci resolve, by black magic design which produces cinema cameras. It includes an editor, special effects, likely much more advanced than what the cameras around here come with. I aim to download it and learn it when I get a new machine. Just a heads up for the adventurous that might want to check it out.

It requires a hefty machine to handle h265/h264, unless you convert the video to a professional intermediate codec like what gopro did with the cineform codec.
