Yes. A definite answer. GoPro are best know for video, but the also can take pictures. All GoPros can take pictures in JPG format. Some of the newer models can also use RAW using the GoPro.gpr format.

What are the advantages of GoPro over the mobile phone?

Most mobile phones only support 30fps when recording video. This is not a problem during normal video recording, but when you travel at high speed, you will feel pale or inconsistent. When you use GoPro to shoot at 60fps, and clearly capture the racket and the ball.

We don't go skiing or diving every day, but badminton, table tennis, football, basketball and so on are the things we often play. With GoPro's 120 fps, we can shoot very consistent motion pictures.

Will GoPro Hero 8 suitable to taking vlog?

The first reason is that GoPro doesn’t have zoom and focus. When you shoot yourself, you can't blur the background. Everything around you is photographed. The whole picture will be messy, but gopro can be used as a supplement to the vlog. It can be worn on the head or on the shoulder strap of the backpack to obtain different perspectives. Vlog will be much richer. Gopro recommended for sporting vlog, life class with m43 format camera is better, flip screen, performance and volume are suitable

The second reason is Gopro's shooting effect is too single. It is easy to cause the scene to be monotonous, it is difficult to cut out an interesting short film with only the material taken by GoPro.
