"HERO is a great first GoPro for people looking to share experiences beyond what a phone can capture", says Meghan Laffey, GoPro's SVP of Product, "HERO makes it easy to share "wow" moments at a price that's ideal for first-time users". It's a camera that makes "GoPro accessible to all", the company says. The camera also has waterproofing support up to 30feet.

"HERO is a great first GoPro for people looking to share experiences beyond what a phone can capture", says Meghan Laffey, GoPro's SVP of Product, "HERO makes it easy to share "wow" moments at a price that's ideal for first-time users". So far, you'll notice a few features missing that GoPro offers in its higher-priced cameras.

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

The HERO camera features a 2-inch touch display and provides voice control feature for recording and taking photos.

Video stabilization provides smoother capture of bumpy experiences.

The main differences between the Hero and its more expensive counterparts are mostly on the performance side. When you want to turn to stills mode, it'll serve up 10 megapixel quality images.

So unless someone else has had his good fortune, Ali is the only person in the United Kingdom right now to have the new GoPro Hero camera.

At only $199, the new HERO is easier than ever to get your hands on.

The HERO captures a max resolution and frame rate of 1440p at 60 frames per second; this means no 4K footage.

Other notable features include video stabilisation to keep your videos from looking like a juddering mess, smartphone compatibility to sync photos and video plus it'll work with over 30 GoPro mounting accessories.
