Entry-level HERO camera confirmed by GoPro

Entry-level HERO camera confirmed by GoPro

GoPro's newest action camera, named Hero, looks near identical to the company's flagship action camera, the Hero6 Black.

The GoPro Hero is a lot cheaper than the other products in the firm's lineup, with the company hoping to tempt in anyone who's been a little intimidated by - or simply unable to afford - the company's higher-end creations.

Like the Hero5 Black and the Hero6 Black, the new camera features a built-in 2-inch touch display, providing a smartphone-like user interface, and is also waterproof out of the box (for up to 10m) without the need to use a specific housing. It lacks the optical image stabilization capabilities of the pricier cameras.

The camera works in conjunction with the GoPro App, meaning video and pictures can be wirelessly transferred to smartphones for social sharing.

Mind you, in recent times, as the Hero series has become smarter, sharper and gathered features, the prices have been creeping up. It'll also be able to record video in 1440p at 60 frames per second or, of course, 1080p60 as well.

The GoPro Hero is available to purchase right now, for £199.99. If you want just want an action camera to take places your smartphone can't go, and you've have had your eye on GoPro for a while, the new Hero seems like a pretty good deal. On the other hand, increasing camera qualities of smartphones certainly doesn't help. "Along with GoPro we want to give them the flawless camera to capture their adventures", added Adarsh Menon, Vice President and Head-Electronics and Private Labels, Flipkart. The firm's revenue was down 38.1% compared to the same quarter last year. equities analysts predict that GoPro will post -0.62 EPS for the current year.
