GoPro releases $199 entry-level camera with touchscreen

30 March 2018

At $199, it's by far the cheapest GoPro you can buy. GoPro HERO adds to our world class selection and will help strengthen Flipkart's dominant leadership in cameras.

While the GoPro Hero does look like other cameras in the lineup such as the Hero 6, it's not as capable in the performance department, but that was obvious given that it costs $199. "Hero makes it easy to share "wow" moments at a price that's ideal for first-time users".

Giants coach expects Beckham to attend off-season program
But considering Beckham's far-from flawless behavior, Giants co-owner John Mara might want to ride himself of the headache. Mara said the Beckham trade storyline is "unequivocally" a bigger story outside the Giants' than inside the front office.

In a last play to squeeze the remaining juice out of the enthusiast weekender market, GoPro has announced a $199 action camera that packs numerous features from its higher-end models into something much more affordable. We found the new entry-level GoPro Hero on sale in a retail shop ahead its rumoured release date this weekend and bought it before it was taken off the shelves. It's capped to a max resolution and frame rate of 1440p at 60 frames per second, so it can't shoot 4K or super-slow-motion footage. The company also offers a monthly subscription service for $4.99 per month that affords cloud backups, 20 percent off select accessories and damaged camera replacement. The advanced options within the menus (which most users never touch anyway) have been stripped away so there aren't as many decisions to make before you hit "Record".

As for what features it does inherit, the entry-level model keeps the 2-inch touchscreen, has voice control and is water-proof up to 30 feet. The app can also create fun and shareable videos for your social media. And yes, this new GoPro works with the company's smartphone apps that enable in-the-moment wireless file transfer and touchscreen editing tools.
