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.
