Our HERO8 mounting kit is designed to work with the original EVO GP, EVO GP-PRO and EVO SS models.
The HERO8 kit features a custom, professionally SLS 3D printed PA12 nylon mount bracket that screws in place of your existing mounting bracket. It is a simple 2 screw swap which is relatively easy with the included 1.5mm allen driver.
Unlike our other mounts, the HERO8 simply slides in from the side of the mount and is then secured using a silicone rubber strap (extra strap included). The backside of the mount is open design for clear view of the LCD screen. The rec button on top of the camera is exposed and easy to press. The power / mode button on the side of the camera is covered up by the silicone retaining strap but does not interfere with the button's function.
Included in the kit is a c-clamp style custom counterweight that simply clamps onto the backside of the gimbal's roll arm to help balance the roll axis of the gimbal given the extra weight of the HERO8.
Please be sure to select the correct kit for your gimbal above as the SS and GP-PRO mounts are specific for each model.
In The Box:
- x1 HERO8 Mounting Bracket (Upgraded - 3D Printed Nylon PA12)
- x2 Silicone Mount Straps
- x1 Counterweight kit
- x1 1.5mm allen driver
This fits the hero 8 and you get 2 straps, plus counter weights. The issue is the clamp for the counter weights. Did a work around. The bonus is the clamp I used balances the go pro, no counter weight used! So, on to the next phase of learning the gimbal modes. Oh, I also got the wired remote. So trial and error time
Something about the field of view provided by a gimbal just cannot be matched by a standard GoPro mount. The kit is easy to install and the balancing kit is an added bonus that also allows you to minimize associated gimbal noise with a perfectly balanced unit. The 4K footage looks amazing and the field of view is always perfect. If you have an EVO SS and HERO 8, don't hesitate on this purchase.
I use my EVO GP-PRO a lot. The addition of the Hero 8 Mount Kit shows you understand your customers. The new bracket was so easy to replace. Honestly I like this better than the original. My GoPro 8 perfectly fits in there and I don't even use the silicone straps. It came with 2 and might just have the need for them one day. That is the only dislike I have as they can snap overtime Overall, I am so pleased with it!
