GoPro Hero+ Wi-Fi
GoPro Hero+ Wi-Fi – GoPro’s newest budget action cam

GoPro has announced a new model- an entry level model, the GoPro Hero+ Wi-Fi,  Priced at $199.00.

We now have three Hero+ models – these are the more basic, no-frill models that ditch a version number.

Hero + is $129.00 – Shop on Amazon
(NEW) Hero + Wi-Fi $199 Shop on Amazon or B&H Photo – Shipping Oct 4th
Hero + LCD $299.00 Shop on Amazon

Much of the difference between these models is distinguishable by name with a few additional key features

The Hero+ LCD provides the 1080p at 60fps, Wi-Fi connectivity AND a touch sensitive LCD on the back for easier control of the camera and easier feedback on what you are capturing.

Quick Thoughts – Gopro continues to dominate the market and now offer a camera at every price point.  The number of GoPro’s I have seen tourists using for selfies and general photography is regrettable. They make good action cameras but are not the best for general photography and I will be talking more about a really sweet alternative soon – the Olympus TG-860 that I used in Greece.

 #oink Farm life in Lancaster County, Pennsylvania ...That'll do, pig.
 They all had dreams. They all had family. They died for us. Arlington National Cemetery is a heavy place, I can't help but think about all the pain and suffering when presented with row upon row of a headstone representing a fallen soldier and my mind boggles that this still happens today. On this little planet hurtling through an incomprehensible ginormous space - some people think it is ok to kill each other. :( p.s. You should google Cornelius H. Charlton - his story is interesting p.p.s My grandfather is buried in Arlington- my Mom's father was instrumental in designing and implementing early radar systems for the Navy in WW2. Captured with the #Sony #a7RII and #Canon #70200L at 200mm and f/3.2
 #mondaymorningshare - I want to see your failed experiments or favorite photos from the last week. GO TO http://photorec.tv/fb to share your fav image from the past week. Here's my #failedexperiment The US Capitol at Sunset. File this under because I could - a 2 minute exposure with the use of a NISI Filters 10-stop ND. I hoped I would get some interesting wispy movement in the clouds but nothing developed. Next I tried a 6 minute exposure (swipe to see it) and while there may be a little more movement in the clouds it certainly wasn't anything to get excited about. And while I often recommend very carefully shooting building and monuments as symmetrically as possible, I purposefully shot from right of center to avoid losing Ulysses S. Grant statue in the front of the capitol. *  Sony #A7RII and #Canon 2470mm with #NiSiFilters #10StopND
