GoPro Introduces a new price friendly Action Cam — the GoPro HERO

April 04, 2018

GoPro reacts to an action camera market is now awash in choice and often overwhelmed with features. Many users still want a premium product from the leading action camera brand, but don’t require the higher resolution modes of the latest models. The simple fact is 4k video requires so much more storage and post production effort that it is often not used even when the feature is available. GoPro has obviously noticed that there is a still a market for an action camera at a great price without features many users don’t need.

For these users, GoPro’s new HERO could just be the prefect model. In fact, at this new low price point this one product could really energise GoPro’s sales in the very crowded action camera market. It is worth noting that this is the market that was single handedly created by GoPro in the last decade and as the most recognised brand in that sector they basically have become the de facto standard by which all other brands are judged. GoPro is such a recognized world wide brand that even other firm’s action cameras are generically called GoPro’s!

Combining the touch screen and form factor from the HERO5 and 6, the new HERO promises to be both easy to use and compatible with the huge range of existing GoPro accessories — while being very easy on the wallet at $299.00 Au
