GoPro has a brand new entry level HERO camera

gopro-heroAction cameras are something that many of us are able to identify with. It not only helps us to capture whatever we see and wherever we go, it is also able to provide a far better narrative than our words alone. After all, I am quite sure that an adrenaline pumping experience such as heading downhill on a mountain bike trail requires all of our concentration without having to spare some attention holding a smartphone in one hand trying to record the journey downwards. This is where action cameras come in handy, and no one does it better than GoPro. GoPro’s brand new entry level HERO camera has just been announced, where it will be the most affordable model to date with an asking price of $199 a pop.

The all new GoPro HERO camera is a go-anywhere, capture-anything camera that makes it a whole lot easier to share experiences that would normally be difficult or tough to capture with a smartphone. There is a built-in 2-inch touchscreen display that enables easy and convenient access to controls on the device itself, while it is also waterproof up to 30 feet, which means you can bring it with you on your next snorkeling trip or perhaps have some fun by the beach or waterfall. Children, adventurous social sharers and travelers will definitely find the new GoPro HERO a device that they can identify with.

Sharing your recorded experiences with HERO is a snap, as it will offload both photos and videos to the GoPro app. The app itself will then piece these together to create fun, shareable videos automatically, doing away with the need for transferring data by removing the SD memory card or hooking up the action camera to a PC. Apart from the $199 asking price, you can have the ultimate GoPro-experience by subscribing to GoPro’s PLUS subscription service. This service offers cloud backup, damaged camera replacement, a 20% discount for accessory purchases, and others for as little as $4.99 a month, which can be cancelled at any time.
