GoPro, the well-known North American brand of action cameras has presented its most basic model from its particular catalog. It's about the GoPro Hero —Without any numbering— that achieves a much tighter price than its sisters, although it is also true that more adjusted technical characteristics are achieved.
GoPro has made a name for itself in the action camera industry. Although other brands like Sony are also strongly committed to this market. However, knowing that your GoPro Hero 5 or GoPro Hero 6 are not suitable for all pockets, the best way to reach all audiences was to launch a much more affordable model. This is where the GoPro Hero comes in.
This camcorder - and photos - has the same design, measurements, and weights as the other GoPro models. It also has a 10 megapixel sensor resolution; may dive underwater to a maximum of 10 meters; it has a 1.220 milliamp battery; and it is compatible with the different uprights available by the brand (for the helmet, for the bicycle handlebar, etc.).
Meanwhile, the goPro Hero can also be controlled via voice commands; has a rear touch screen to be able to control all the menus and it is compatible with memory cards. In addition, and as it could not be missing, it has the «QuikStories» function with which you can share the content with your smartphone -or tablets- and get videos instantly.
However, the most negative part of this GoPro Hero is that you will not be able to create content in 4K; you should be content with videos in 1440p at 60 fps or 1080p at 60 fps. It is also not compatible with the brand's drone, GoPro Karma, nor does it have HDR technology or a function to take night photographs. The GoPro Hero is available now and is priced at 219,99 euros.
