GoPro Inc. released its new Wi-Fi and Bluetooth enabled HERO+ camera. Retailing at $199.99 (or peso equivalent), the HERO+ is waterproof and mountable as well as compatible with GoPro’s array of mounts and accessories. It captures 1080p60 and 720p60 video and 8MP single, Time Lapse and Burst photos.
HERO+ most notably features Wi-Fi, which allows it to connect with GoPro’s mobile app and benefit from such tools as a Trim & Share feature that allows the user to create and share short video clips across social media channels.
HERO+ rounds out the 2015 GoPro lineup that now boasts the small and simple-to-use HERO4 Session (MSRP: $299.99, or peso equivalent). These two devices complement the HERO4 Black and HERO4 Silver.
Also in the lineup are: HERO4 Black, HERO4 Silver, HERO4 Session, HERO+LCD, HERO+, and HERO.
“Whether mounted to a weather balloon floating 100,000 feet above the earth to capture a sunrise across the stratosphere or in the hands of a child recording their backyard tree house adventures, HERO+ is built to capture your imagination wherever it takes you,” said Nicholas Woodman, GoPro’s founder and CEO. “Even as we continue to raise the bar for our highest performing cameras like HERO4 Black, Silver and Session, we remain committed to developing simplified products like HERO+ that make GoPro life-capture accessible to everyone.”
HERO+ will be available at authorized retailers around the world and on GoPro.com starting October 4.
