New GoPro Hero (2018)
Entry-Level Camera at Affordable Price

Several days ago GoPro released a new model Hero. It is perfect for beginners and amateurs. If you’ve never had an action camera before, GoPro Hero is the perfect beginning.

It can shoot 1440p and 1080p videos at 60 frames per second. That is more than enough for most users.

* - Pricing is taken from the official GoPro website. Prices on Amazon.com might be lower.

Unlike Hero 5 and Hero 6, the new model doesn't have 4K resolution and nor does it stand out with high FPS, but this is all due to very low price. Seriosuly, 4K might be an overkill. We all know we're never gonna sort or delete all those videos we shoot.
