The $199 Hero Action Camera Is the Cheapest GoPro You Can Buy


Simply called Hero, the new camera is a "go-anywhere, capture-anything" snapper that's priced at AU$299.95 (about $229 / £163) - making it the cheapest GoPro action cam at launch thus far - and it's aimed at those who want to capture all the action without relying on the limitations of a smartphone camera.

According to a new report from TechCrunch, the new camera, simply called the GoPro Hero, costs $200 Dollars and will feature most of the best features of the Hero 5 and Hero 6, at half the cost.

It also features advanced functions such as voice control, video stabilisation, and compatibility with the GoPro smartphone app.

Ali asked the staff if he could buy the GoPro Hero camera and pointed out that it hasn't been announced yet.

It also looks like the software on the new GoPro Hero has also been simplified to make it easier to operate.


Head over to GoPro's website right now if you're interested in picking one up as the $199 GoPro Hero has gone on sale today. The main difference is that it's not quite as good of a camera.

Camera Jabber's action camera expert Ali Jennings happened to be in the shop picking up another piece of equipment when he spotted the new entry-level GoPro Hero camera sitting on a shelf next to the Hero5 Black.

The HERO has a 2-inch touch display that helps you capture and review 10-megapixel photos and 1080p60 videos. The GoPro Hero features a 10MP camera lens that can shoot HD video at 1440p and 1080p at 60 frames per second. "Along with GoPro we want to give them the ideal camera to capture their adventures", added Adarsh Menon, Vice President and Head-Electronics and Private Labels, Flipkart.

Video stabilization is built-in and it's compatible with most existing GoPro mounting accessories.

The GoPro HERO is available now for $200 United States dollars from the company's website and through authorized retailers.
