GoPro releases $199 entry-level camera with touchscreen

GoPro has just announced a brand new HERO to its action camera family.

After doing a double take, he asked the staff if this was the new entry-level GoPro Hero camera with a £199 price tag.

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.

Video stabilization provides smoother capture of bumpy experiences.

As a result, the GoPro Hero can only shoot up to 1440p or 1080p HD video at 60fps.

A Warm Wave for Spring Break — FIRST ALERT WEATHER
Our cloudy morning will give way to some breaks of sunshine in the afternoon, helping bump temperatures back to the 50s. We'll be on our way to a warmer set up with little concern in the skies for tomorrow under mostly sunny conditions.

"HERO is a great first GoPro for people looking to share experiences beyond what a phone can capture", says Meghan Laffey, GoPro's SVP of Product, "HERO makes it easy to share "wow" moments at a price that's flawless for first-time users". Wherever life takes you, capture and share your story for the ideal price.

GoPro's other cameras include the $399 Hero6 Black, the $299 Hero5 Black and the Fusion 360-camera priced at $699. The new GoPro Hero is already on sale and comes in at a penny under two ton: £199.99.

When is This New GoPro Hero Available for Purchase? "Along with GoPro we want to give them the flawless camera to capture their adventures", added Adarsh Menon, Vice President and Head-Electronics and Private Labels, Flipkart. And yes, this new GoPro works with the company's smartphone apps that enable in-the-moment wireless file transfer and touchscreen editing tools.

GoPro used to be a company that could do no wrong but over the past few years, it has struggled. The GoPro HERO camera is compatible with all the existing GoPro mounting accessories.
