Another generation of the famous GoPro camera with an entry-level price allows adventurers to record a lot more videos for a lot less money. On sale starting on Oct. 4 for just $200, this water resistant and settable HERO+ can film 1080p60 or 720p60 videos, as well as capture 8MP photos, time lapse and cascading images.
The device also features Bluetooth and Wireless options, enabling users to synchronize their digicam with GoPro’s dedicated app to modify, cut, and share photos or videos via social networks.
The newest sequel in this year’s GoPro collection, HERO+ unites the original gadget ($130), the LCD version (with touch screen for $300), HERO4 Silver (with touch screen for $400), HERO4 Session (at $300) and the ultra-modern HERO4 Black (at $500).
No matter if it is installed on top of an air balloon floating at thousands of feet above the ground or in the deepest and darkest caves, the GoPro can work just as well. HERO+ was made to record all events wherever its user takes it.
With the push of a single button, the adventurers can turn on the powerful digicam and start filming right away. For extra options, they can use its HiLight Tag to indicate certain moments on the video. The SuperView feature is extremely useful for wide-angle areas of view, while the automatic Low Light method instantly adapts the device’s filming rates for maximum low-light efficiency.
GoPro HERO+ is also equipped with an incorporated microphone that is suitable for all other GoPro’s installments and components. People who are working with just one GoPro 3 and 4 camera can now transmit video streaming directly to an iOS-based Meerkat application.
At first look, the new Hero+ looks like all the other GoPro’s cameras with a weight of just 111g due to its integrated lightweight components. Thanks to a conventional backboard, the device is water resistant up to a depth of 130 feet and it has a small door that allows more sound to be captured by the built-in mic.
HERO+ has a microSD port that can support memory cards up to 64GB and a USB connection. Unfortunately, the device does not have a dedicated HDMI slot and the usual GoPro equipment slot. The former allows users to playback from their digicam to a desktop screen or a TV monitor.
Without the equipment slot, there is no way to connect an LCD and an additional battery with BacPac segments. As a result, you cannot review videos at high resolution and, because the power source is built in, there is no easy way to increase the gadget’s energy. However, the device can be powered through its USB slot, if needed. The USB cannot support an exterior mic wire like other models.
For the more passionate users looking to buy a more expensive device, GoPro recently presented the $15,000 Odyssey gadget. This system has a stereoscopic panoramic filming rig, made for virtual reality gadgets. The 16 synchronized Black cameras are able to record a 360-degree video at 8K30 and are designed for Google’s upcoming Jump VR system.
