New entry-level Go Pro Hero camera on sale

New entry-level Go Pro Hero camera on sale

GoPro CEO Nick Woodman has promised for a few months now that a new entry-level camera was coming, and today, the company delivered.

According to a new report from TechCrunch, the new camera, simply called the GoPro Hero, costs $200 Dollars and will feature most of the best features of the Hero 5 and Hero 6, at half the cost.

The new Hero camera does come with a 2-inch color touch screen and voice control, offers video stabilization and noise control that's powered by three internal microphones - all features that are also available on higher-end models.

The Hero is of course compatible with the vast range of accessories, from chest straps to bike mounts and you can transfer your content to your smartphone or PC via the GoPro app.

"HERO is a great first GoPro for people looking to share experiences beyond what a phone can capture", said Meghan Laffey, GoPro's SVP of product. But the new Hero has been simplified and abridged to make it easier to use and to bring the price way down.

Malala Yousafzai Makes a Visit Back to Pakistan
Last week, on Twitter, Yousafzai, who lives in Britain and is studying at Oxford University, expressed a longing for her homeland. Yousafzai's exact schedule is being closely guarded for security reasons and fear of another attack by the Taliban.

A proven design, simplified for just $199. It is waterproof to 30 feet and is extremely durable and ideally suitable for adventurous social sharers and travelers.

The main differences, obviously, lie in the image quality. The new GoPro Hero is already on sale and comes in at a penny under two ton: £199.99. While it lacks 4K video capabilities, the Hero can shoots HD video at 1440p and 1080p at up to 60fps and captures 10MP stills.

So unless someone else has had his good fortune, Ali is the only person in the United Kingdom right now to have the new GoPro Hero camera.

The GoPro HERO is available now for $200 United States dollars from the company's website and through authorized retailers.
