GoPro has introduced a new entry-level camera in their HERO lineup.
The camera is simply called the HERO Camera, with no other names or number attached. It has a 2-inch touch display, is waterproof up to 10 meters (30ft) and “extremely durable.”
“HERO is a great first GoPro for people looking to share experiences beyond what a phone can capture,” says Meghan Laffey, GoPro’s VP of Product. “HERO makes it easy to share ‘wow’ moments at a price that’s perfect for first-time users.”
The HERO can record video at up to 1440p at 60fps or 1080p at 60fps and take 10-megapixel photos, there’s also video stabilization to help smooth out your footage. Just like the HERO6 Black, the HERO also has voice control so you can tell the device to start or stop recording, take a photo or turn off.
You can also connect the camera to your smartphone and offload your photos and videos to the GoPro app. The app will then automatically create fun, shareable videos in the form of Quik Stories.
The HERO will work with more than 30 GoPro mounts and accessories. The HERO is available now for $269 CAD ($199 USD) and will be available from Amazon.ca, Best Buy Canada, Walmart, SportChek, Henry’s, London Drugs, Lozeau in the coming weeks. You can also order the HERO from GoPro’s website.
