Best deals to find on GoPro cameras

Published On November 21, 2017 | By Lisa Patterson | Tech Updates

Ideal companion for winter sports, all action-cam in general and GoPro in particular are not equal. Each model of the range of sports cameras from the American manufacturer GoPro has its own specificities. 

The GoPro range of sports cameras (Action Cam) includes seven models: Hero (which is now difficult to find), Hero +, Hero + LCD, Silver Hero4, Hero4 Black, Hero4 Session and Hero 5 with prices ranging from 120 euros at 430 euros for the Hero5.

At less than 120 euros, the Hero + now acts as entry-level at GoPro. It offers more features than the first name Hero which is rare in stores (excluding market-place) and is listed at the same price. For starters, she films in Full HD at 60 frames / second. The movements of the subjects are fluid and you can also replay the videos in 30 frames / second to obtain a slight slow motion effect. The photo definition is 8 megapixels and the burst mode allows you to create videos in Time Lapse and you can trigger every 1/2, 1, 2, 5, 10, 30 or 60 seconds the photos .

The camera also has HiLight Tag, which is used to mark important moments during recording and playback on the GoPro. This is useful for finding them quickly when editing or sharing. Also note the loop recording that will erase the oldest clips as soon as the memory card is full. 

Another advantage over the “classic” Hero, the “+” has a Wi-Fi connection to connect to a mobile terminal or remote control GoPro Smart Remote. This not only allows you to control the camera and transfer the videos, but also and above all to see what you are filming.

The video quality is noticeably better but it is still confined to a small-format view on mobiles rather than on televisions or monitors.

GoPro Hero +

With the GoPro Hero +, the manufacturer adds a little more to its entry-level offer. As its name suggests, the Hero + is neither more nor less than a Hero + LCD without touch screen. We thus find the capacity to film in Full HD (1920 x 1080 pixels), the robustness, the waterproofness up to 40 meters depth, the Wi-Fi … but also the defects with this box and the battery which are both irremovable. The disappearance of the touch screen saves a hundred euros … it is far from negligible.

the battery is not removable, which means that it is impossible to change during use,

the camera is installed in a protective case also irremovable. It is solid and waterproof up to 40 meters, but if you damage it it will be difficult to replace it. In addition, it affects the audio quality. GoPro Hero 6 Black Friday Discount will soon be available on 24th November

If you do not need a built-in camera screen, the Hero + is the right entry-level model to choose from, it offers more than the Hero: better video quality, more options and Wi -Fi and is displayed at the same price.

Around 270 euros, the Hero + LCD takes the characteristics of the Hero + and adds, as its name suggests, a touch LCD screen that can preview or play videos and also intervene on the settings. You can even do some editing directly on the screen. The photo and video quality is the same as the Hero +: 1080p / 60 and 8 megapixels. There is also Wi-Fi to associate the camera with a mobile terminal. Unfortunately we find the waterproof case and the battery both irremovable.

GoPro Hero + LCD

The GoPro Hero4 Silver is no longer the only Action Cam from the American manufacturer to have a touch screen. The Hero + LCD joins her. This is an intermediate model that joins the old Hero3 + Silver and the entry-level model Hero. We find the essential with the ability to shoot in Full HD, robustness and waterproofness up to 40 meters. The Hero + LCD has Wi-Fi in order to be controlled via a mobile terminal. Some concessions are to be accepted, like the irremovable battery. Also check out great offers on Bluehost Hosting Black Friday

For those who want a camera with good video quality and the comfort of a screen that makes it easy to use.
