When the GoPro Hero 8 Black was launched, it came with a number of changes and improvements. GoPro made this camera a lot more vlogging friendly with the launch of several new accessories known as ‘mods’. In this article, we discuss the top eight must-have accessories for your GoPro Hero 8 Black.

Hero 8 Mods

Do Old GoPro Accessories Work With GoPro Hero 8 Black?

If you’re upgrading from a previous GoPro model and already have some accessories with you, chances are that they will work with the GoPro Hero 8 too. However, not all the older model accessories are compatible with the Hero 8 Black.

The three models that came prior to Hero 8 – the Hero 5 Black, the Hero 6 Black & the Hero 7 Black – all share a similar body design. But, the Hero 8 Black’s body is slightly larger than those. So, in case you’re upgrading from any of these three GoPro cameras to Hero 8, most frames and housings that you previously used won’t work with your new camera.

Talking about montajes, the GoPro Hero 8 uses the same standard 3-prong GoPro-style attachment system used in the previous models. So, most of your previously used accessories which have such a mounting attachment system should work with the Hero 8 Black too.
