GoPro Launches New Entry-Level Camera

Action cam maker GoPro introduced a new entry-level camera dubbed Hero Thursday.

According to a new report from TechCrunch, the new camera, simply called the GoPro Hero, costs $200 United States dollars and will feature most of the best features of the Hero 5 and Hero 6, at half the cost. This camera will not be able to record 4K videos, nor can it capture ultra-smooth slow-motion shots like the Hero 5 and Hero 6. The company also offers a monthly subscription service for $4.99 per month that affords cloud backups, 20 percent off select accessories and damaged camera replacement.

"Hero is a great first GoPro for people looking to share experiences beyond what a phone can capture", said GoPro's Senior Vice President of Product, Meghan Laffey. The GoPro Hero features a 10MP camera lens that can shoot HD video at 1440p and 1080p at 60 frames per second. Wherever life takes you, capture and share your story for the flawless price. The new waterproof action camera is simply called the GoPro Hero and does not have any number beside it like its predecessors the Hero5 and Hero6.

The GoPro Hero comes in at £199.99 making it around £100 cheaper than the Hero5 and roughly £200 than the Hero6.

The main differences between the Hero and its more expensive counterparts are mostly on the performance side.
