GoPro launches entry level Hero camera under £200 threshold

We bought the new entry level Go Pro Hero camera spotting it on sale before its launch

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

Like the Hero5 Black and the Hero6 Black, the new camera features a built-in 2-inch touch display, providing a smartphone-like user interface, and is also waterproof out of the box (for up to 10m) without the need to use a specific housing.

Ali asked the staff if he could buy the GoPro Hero camera and pointed out that it hasn't been announced yet. "Our research and feedback shows consumers really like having a touchscreen, so we wanted to give people that familiar experience at an entry-level price, and Hero satisfies both", said a GoPro spokesperson.

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

China Hold Talks On Brahmaputra For The First Time After Doklam
India and China were locked in a 73-day military stand-off at Doklam in the eastern section of their border past year . The statement is a major test of China's patience at a time when it is heading towards a trade war with the US.

It also looks like the software on the new GoPro Hero has also been simplified to make it easier to operate.

The Hero will shoot high definition video at a maximum of 1440p at 60 fps as well as capturing 1080p HD footage at 60 fps. A new camera has been added to the GoPro lineup that's simply called the Hero.

In other GoPro news, SVP Sharon S. Zezima sold 14,966 shares of the firm's stock in a transaction that occurred on Friday, February 16th. This will help you auto offload images and videos to your phone and makes it easier to share them instantly. And yes, this new GoPro works with the company's smartphone apps that enable in-the-moment wireless file transfer and touchscreen editing tools. The company even tried to diversify by launching a drone business, which it then ended up abandoning just a few months ago.

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.
