  • New entry-level Go Pro Hero camera on sale

GoPro has just announced the Hero, an entry-level, £199.99 camera that's designed for consumers who don't really need the most advanced features on the market.

The GoPro Hero action camera is available today on the company's website. The software has also been simplified to make the camera easier to operate. GoPro Senior Vice President of Product Meghan Laffey said, "HERO is a great first GoPro for people looking to share experiences beyond what a phone can capture ..."

As a result, the GoPro Hero can only shoot up to 1440p or 1080p HD video at 60fps. The $200 HERO becomes the most budget-friendly camera in the GoPro lineup, joining the $300 HERO5 and $400 HERO6.

It also looks like the software on the new GoPro Hero has also been simplified to make it easier to operate.

The HERO is outfitted with a 2-inch touch display and can be controlled through voice commands, which can be used to have it snap a photo, stop recording, or turn off. On the other hand, increasing camera qualities of smartphones certainly doesn't help. It also shoots 10-megapixel stills and has an electronic video stabilization system. Naturally, it fits with the full range of GoPro mount accessories.

The camera has been constructed with durability at front of mind, and GoPro says it's suitable for "kids, adventurous social sharers and travel lovers" - so it should withstand commutes where you might want to record what's going on, too.

The GoPro camera is compatible with your smartphone and has an app to offload your photos and videos on the go.

The question is whether it will be enough to revive the fortunes of a company that has endured a tough few years.
