    With this case, you can improve the media connection for your GoPro. You can use the micro HMDI port (cable not included) to stream the video directly to your PC or TV. Also this looks like a protection for you camera.

    I would have given it 5 stars, but the fact that you even need this add on to use the camera as it should be out of the box kills me. No microphone plug, Very little wind protection from the standard mic. It's nice now that I have the options I should have had from the start, and had to give up waterproofing to do it.

    A must have for those wanting to to get the most out of their GoPro 8. Very easy to install or swap out for water sports. It also makes the GoPro look sharp!!

    Battery Compartment is a Hassle

    I like the mod case and the ability to add attachments like the mod display and mod light. My only complaint is what a hassle it is to change the battery to the GoPro. Let's face it, they die quick and when that happens you have to detach the GoPro from anything its attached to then you have to slide the whole device out of the mod case to change the battery. Just an FYI

    I should have gotten this media mod when it came out. There are only two issues. One is that the attached mic doesn't have a windscreen for it and you have to take off the case anytime you want to take out the memory card. I will say one other issue is that the base price for these mods in my opinion is high. But overall this is an amazing choice for external mic options for the Hero 8.

    Bottom line GoPro wants more money from us which is why this mod exists. Now, the mics on it are ok but for $80 you would expect better. Fortunately I bought it to use with an external mic and for the port for me to then use with an HDMI (which was removed as well from previous model). Now this is a better setup then using the external plug from the previous model that was bulky and weird. So the layout is better, just a shame the price wasn't cheaper or the mics being better.

    The case is great for protection, fits and works really well. I use it all time. Plus I bought it for the speaker so I can pick up better audio. No complaints

    The GoPro Hero8 Media case adds two directional mics, making interviews and Vlogging a breeze. It also gives you external plugs allowing you to run a USB-C cable to the camera to give it unlimited power (which you will need given the abysmal battery life of the Hero8). The downside? Using the case means your GoPro isn't waterproof, so keep an eye out for moisture. It also fails to offer enhanced lens protection, which it easily could and which would have added a lot of value to this accessory.

    No, I would not recommend this to a friend

    I love the Hero 8 but it does have some issues. The media mod addresses a few of those by giving you slightly better audio and the option to add much better audio. You can also connect an external battery using this for those nice timelapse shots. The biggest downside to this though is that the camera is no longer waterproof with this connected.

    Fun accessory for GoPro Hero 8!

    I use this quite a bit, but only when I know I'm not going to be near water, since it is not waterproof. I like the coldshoe mounts that it has: one on top and one on the side. Works great with my lightmod and rode videomic Pro. I also like how you can charge the GoPro using this without taking the GoPro out. A little pricy, but if that's not a big deal to you, then you will enjoy this!

    Easy to use and the access to charging, mic and mini HDMI make it easy to hook up accessories. The sound is very good but not dramatically better. Overall if you are looking to use accessories with the GoPro and want to bump the audio up a bit a very good add on for your GoPro

    The media mod is a improvement in sound quality and it has a usb type c plug for charging. The things I don't like about it is 1. It's not waterproof 2. You have to completely remove the media mod to change the battery or the memory card.

    I added this to my hero 8 and there was an improved sound quality. I have yet to utilize the mounts for accessories on it, but looking at comparison YouTube videos it's actually worth the money. I'll be trying a rode boom mic on it in the coming days.

    I got two of these also, I like accessories I guess. I wish they (GoPro) would have attempted to seal it better like on the hero 9 version.

    Awesome mod case! Purchased this to livestream our wedding & the microphone was a concern that we wouldn’t hear our vows. This case was exceptional & picked up sound all the way to the back of the venue where we were married. The extra slots for adding the light mod was really great, too!
