Meet the HERO, GoPro’s Cheapest Action Cam Yet

by | Apr 2, 2018 | Cameras

GoPro has unveiled the newest addition to its roster. Simply called the HERO, GoPro’s new camera is its cheapest action cam yet and an obvious reply to entry-level cameras that rival it. Chief among them is the SJ Cam, a crowd-pleasing budget action cam that does all of GoPro’s expensive tricks for a small fraction of the price.

The HERO camera is a nice device like its bigger brothers but obviously had to make a few compromises. Should the spec sheet be our indication, however, the $199 price tag feels justified.

With that out of the way, here’s everything you need to know about the GoPro HERO camera.
