GoPro Hero (2018) Review

 

Built-in touchscreen ; Waterproof without a case ; Great mobile apps ; Voice control ; Very easy to use

Lacks ProTune ; Limited resolution and frame-rate options ; Interface has basic options from Hero5/Hero6 ; Some cheaper cameras have more features

The Hero is GoPro’s most focused camera for beginners yet, and we really appreciate that. GoPro has distilled the key qualities of its user experience into a simple, affordable camera. As an entry-level model, it’s the best GoPro has ever made.

GoPro Hero

 

GoPro's new entry-level action camera, the Hero, is just as tough as its pricier siblings, but not nearly as versatile when it comes to frame rates and time-lapse.

Affordable. Rugged, waterproof design. Touch LCD. Good digital image stabilization. Voice control. Automated editing via phone app. Wi-Fi.

Limited choices for frame rates and resolutions. Can't set time-lapse interval. No ProTune, HDR, or Raw support.

The GoPro Hero is an action camera for users who don't need the extreme slow-motion, 24fps frame rate, adjustable time-lapse, and 4K video capture offered by the $400 Hero6 Black, but want the same level of build quality and waterproofing. If your...

GoPro Hero Review: Great Midrange Action Camera

 

The $199 GoPro Hero is a solid performer, offering quality video up to 1440p, adequate image stabilization, a waterproof housing, an intuitive interface and a great app.

Max resolution of 1440p/60 fps ; 2-inch Gorilla Glass LCD touch screen ; Electronic image stabilization up to 1440p/30 fps ; USB Type C for charging and file transfer ; Good wind-noise reduction

Functional yet uninspiring design ; No 720p resolution ; No slow motion ; No HDR photo

The GoPro Hero is a full-featured action camera with above-average performance, an easy-to-use mobile app and image stabilization.

GoPro Hero

 

GoPro Hero review: GoPro's new entry-level camera is positioned as travel-friendly, but it strips away one too many features.

Decent image quality ; Solid companion app ; 2-inch touchscreen is easy to use ; Waterproof without a case

Limited FOV adjustment ; No ProTune exposure adjustment ; Restricted resolutions and frame rates

GoPro’s entry-level model strips away a few too many features to make it compelling.

GoPro Hero review

 

Back to basics, and all the better for it

Easy to use ; Waterproof ; Voice control ; Comprehensive and simple app ; Good Full HD footage

4:3 ratio when shooting at 1440p ; No sub-Full HD quality options ; No exposure control

There are better-specified action cameras out there for a similar price, including ones that offer 4K video, but they don't have the refined design and polished controls of the GoPro Hero. This is a great action camera for the budget-conscious or...

GoPro Hero (2018) review: A go-anywhere action camera that sticks to the basics

 

A very tempting deal for those who don't need advanced technical features

Waterproof at up to 10m ; Excellent video stabilisation ; Great audio quality

Doesn’t shoot 4K ; Image quality is merely good ; No GPS

In short, if you’re not bothered about extreme resolutions and technical settings, but just want a versatile action camera at a sensible price, the new GoPro might just be the Hero you’ve been waiting for.

The same rugged, waterproof body but with cut-down internals for a cheaper price. Is this the best GoPro yet? Find out in our 2018 GoPro Hero review.

GoPRO HERO (2018) Action Camera Review

 

GoPRO action cameras have just got a little more affordable with the launch of the HERO so, of course, we're putting it to the test.

Thanks to the reasonable price, the GoPro HERO makes GoPro cameras more accessible and if you don't need to record 4K video, then it could be the ideal action camera for your summer holiday. It's small, produces decent videos/images and it really is a...
