GOPRO IS RELEASING A NEW BUDGET-MINDED ACTION CAMERA CALLED SIMPLY HERO

While camera companies are racing who will use more advanced and modern tech, GoPro has decided to go a different route. They have just launched HERO at san jose tech conference, a simplified and budget-friendly action camera. For the price of $220, HERO (no number, just HERO) is aimed at capturing your everyday stories and adventures.

It doesn’t have 4K video recording, but it has many of the same features as the Hero5 Black. For instance, you get voice control, QuikStories, video stabilisation and waterproofing up to 10 metres. It even has the 3-mic noise reduction system. And, unlike the Session cameras it’s replacing, it does have a screen, so you can see what you’re filming and interact with the controls using its touch sensitivity.

If you can live without the 4K resolution video, the 60fps 1080p capture from the stabilised Hero should be more than enough to capture your best outdoor exploits. Here are all the resolutions, frame-rates and FOVs available:

 1440p Wide – 60fps
 1080p Wide – 60fps
 10/1 burst rate 10MP stills

There’s also voice control that lets you do things like snap photos and turn off the camera hands-free. An example of a valid command is: “GoPro, start recording.”

It’s also a camera that you can bring to places and adventures that your smartphone might not be able to handle — the HERO is waterproof down to 30 feet and is “extremely durable.”

The GoPro Hero 2018 also works with the GoPro app for easy file transfer and sharing online. And lastly, it is compatible with almost all of GoPro’s existing accessories.
