The GoPro Hero 8 action camera is one of the best action cameras out in the market now with improved image stabilization and it can also be used on live streaming. In the photo-taking department, there are improvements too, it has improved image quality compared to its predecessors.
The only downside that I can think of (and still) is battery life. Just make sure you have a power bank with you for longer recording sessions.
