Leaked: GoPro’s New, Budget-Friendly HERO Action Camera

Leaked: GoPro's New, Budget-Friendly HERO Action Camera

The GoPro leak machine just keeps on leaking: PetaPixel just revealed that GoPro may add a low-spec, budget model to the bottom of its action cam line. Meet the HERO.

If PetaPixel’s intel
is to be believed—and they’ve been extremely reliable in the past—the
simply-named HERO will give up some of the fancier features of its
bigger brothers. No touch display, no 4K video mode, no Wi-Fi or
Bluetooth connectivity.

What it will have is high-quality 1080p30
and 720p60 video, a one-touch QuikCapture button to power-on and start
recording with a single press, 5-frame-per-second burst photo mode at
5MP, and a 0.5 second time lapse.

The 3.9 oz model comes in an
integrated, non-removable rugged waterproof case safe to 131 feet,
automatic low-light mode, 2.5 hours of battery life, a built-in
microphone, and an SD slot for up to 32GB of removable storage.

We
still don’t know what pricing will be like, but if PetaPixel’s info is
legit, the affordable HERO should offer some great basic capabilities
without the bells and whistles that could push the upcoming Hero4’s
pricing beyond reach for some customers. We’ll find out for certain on
October 8th, when PetaPixel says the new line will officially be announced. [PetaPixel]
