GoPro Adds New Entry-Level $199 USD Hero Action Camera to Lineup

The $200 HERO becomes the most budget-friendly camera in the GoPro lineup, joining the $300 HERO5 and $400 HERO6.

Within minutes of his purchase Ali says he saw staff removing the other entry-level GoPro Hero action cameras from the shelf.

Impressively, it also manages to include smartphone connectivity (presumably via Wi-Fi like other models) and video stabilization (presumably in software rather than mechanical form) to make it a pretty nifty piece of gear. GoPro Senior Vice President of Product Meghan Laffey said, "HERO is a great first GoPro for people looking to share experiences beyond what a phone can capture ..." But the new Hero has been simplified and abridged to make it easier to use and to bring the price way down. The unit will shoot at a max resolution of 1440p at 60 frames per second, will be able to take 10MP stills, shoot time lapses and also perform burst photography.

There's a lot you still do get, however, like a 2-inch touch display, voice controls for starting and stopping a recording, and waterproofing that's good down to 30 feet.
