One More GoPro Model

GoPro has inserted a fourth model into its product line. Here they are in ascending order by price. It's the $300 Hero+ LCD that's new:

  • Hero, $130, basic features, 1080p30 and 720p60 video, 5MP photos up to 5 fps, no external mic input, SDHC only (not SDXC), not removable from its case, timelapse is set to one photo every ½ second.
  • Hero+ LCD, $300, adds more than just the LCD touchscreen, 1080p60 and 720p60 video, 8MP photos up to 5 fps, built-in Wi-Fi and Bluetooth, touch display, not removable from its case, additional fps settings, a range of settings for timelapse, no microphone input, SDXC.
  • Hero4 Silver, $400, more video settings, best is 1440p24, still photos are up to 12MP at up to 10/second (Hero and Hero + LCD are limited to 5/sec), accepts external mic.
  • Hero4 Black, $500, all the bells and whistles they can offer. Video up to 4Kp30, still photos are the same as the Silver, accepts external mic.

The Hero+ LCD will be available in the U.S. beginning June 7; the rest of the world on July 12.

And just so you, the potential customer, won't feel embarrassed in trying to save money on a GoPro, I'll tell you that their cheap $130 camera is their bestseller.
