GoPro HERO Action Cam More Fun, Less Cost

GoPro HERO entry level 2018

Entry-Level 1080p GoPro Debuts at $199

GoPro introduced a new low-priced action camera called HERO for $199. The entry-level model basically has everything most people need for adventure shooting except 4K video capture. However, its the first affordably priced GoPro to feature a touch display (2-inch) and should be very easy to use. Like all GoPro’s (except Fusion) it’s waterproof to 30 feet and is 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.”

Sharing cool experiences with HERO is simple. It offloads your photos and videos to the GoPro app which creates fun, shareable videos for you, automatically. No more fumbling with your SD card or plugging your camera into a computer.

  • FullHD Image Quality: HD Video (1440p60 and 1080p60) and 10MP photo performance
  • 2-Inch Touch Display: Using HERO is as easy as using your phone thanks to its touch display
