GoPro Reveals Hero+ LCD, A $299 Camera With Touch Screen
GoPro has some cool tricks up its sleeves, last week it announced the 16 camera rig for Google’s Jump VR and today it is announcing the Hero+ LCD with touchscreen.
The company launched bare bones Hero last fall, the Hero+ is just a revision with an LCD. The original Hero lacked a lot of features being introduced in the latest model. First things first, is has a touchscreen LCD which is secured in its waterproof case that cannot be removed.
The touchscreen LCD was limited to the Hero 4 Silver however, it is now being introduced the Hero+ LCD. This feature allows users to steer around the menu and viewing videos and images with ease. The Hero+ can also record 1080p at 60 frames per seconds videos whereas previously it could only record videos at 30 fps 1080p and 60 fps 720p.
It has WiFi, Bluetooth and it can also take stills with 8 megapixel capturing resolution (previously it was 5 MP). The HiLight tagging is another upgrade. However, with these upgrades included its price has also taken a bump.
The new GoPro Hero+ LCD will be up for purchase by this weekend i.e. June 7 in UK at $300, which is almost twice as much as the standard or original Hero. The ultimate feature launching with the new Hero is the video trimming option within the camera.
Now you can easily trim the videos from the beginning or the end right from the ease of the camera and then share it instantaneously. This feature is exclusively available for the Hero+ LCD for now, do not expect it to stay the same though.
