It might look like the $ 300 GoPro Hero 5 (which is now two years old), or the $ 400 GoPro Hero 6 (which was released last year), but that's really brand new and a lot cheaper GoPro. This new $ 200 Action Camera, simply called GoPro Hero, will cost half of most of the best features of Hero 5 and Hero 6.
The big reason to buy a GoPro Hero 5 or 6 for something else is due to the quality of the 4K material produced by such a tiny and durable camera. Unfortunately, there is no Shooting 4K video with the new hero. Instead, stay stuck with 1
But if you somehow get over this pretty big drawback, the hero will contain most of the other stuff that has traditionally made the GoPro superior to other cheaper action cameras. It is waterproof up to 30 feet without additional housing, has voice control, video stabilization and a 2-inch touch display. It also works with the many GoPro accessories that are already on the market.
It's not the first cheap GoPro, cheap heroes have ever been around, but it's been more than two years since GoPro offered a budget camera with an actual ad. 19659003] And this return to household cameras could be a very good thing for a company that has been fighting hard over the past year. The company's stock continues to move at an all-time low of $ 4.80 and since January rumors of a potential sale. The reasons are many. First, there's the karma drone disaster that went so badly in January with hundreds of companies. Secondly, the camera manufacturer was overthrown by cheaper action cameras from companies like Sony and Yi. That was one of the reasons why GoPro signed a licensing agreement with Jabil last week (which actually builds many GoPro cameras) to integrate its camera technology into third-party devices. Finally, GoPro has encountered a problem that Apple's iPad faces, where people buy one and rarely, if ever, upgrade it.
A new, cheaper GoPro Hero will not necessarily solve one of these problems, but it could convince people to pull back on the high price of previous GoPros. So far you either had to spend a lot of money on a potentially too big camera or you had to look for a discount. Now you can drop $ 200 and get almost anything that has made GoPro one of the best action cameras ever.
