GoPro HERO+ Review

Key features

There are a series of key features you will surely enjoy when it comes to purchasing a GoPro HERO+. Among the most important, we need to state you that this camera can record a 1080p video at 60 frames per second. The built-in Wi-Fi of the camera is also intended to help you out big time in two ways. Firstly, you get to control the camera thanks to your smartphone after installing a dedicated App, and secondly, you have the possibility to send videos from the camera directly to your phone, just like you would do with the GoPro HERO 4. The GoPro HERO+ is extremely lightweight, given the 4.3-ounce weight. Moreover, its physical dimensions are reduced, making it quite easy to carry around. Soon after you put it in place on your bike, helmet or other gear, you will forget the camera is there. A nice feature that you can make use of with this camera, compared to a GoPro HERO 3, is the QuikCapture mode. One-click shots are available thanks to this mode, so you will not lose the action.

Introduction

If you are looking to purchase a GoPro camera at a fair price, you should definitely have a look to the HERO+ model from GoPro, an entry-level device that manages to provide quite a solid range of features. Budget action cameras are becoming more and more popular these days, but some of them are still flops. If you want to make sure you will not go wrong, you can either choose some camera like to GoPro HERO 3 black, or you can go directly for the GoPro HERO+, a compact device designed to withstand various weather conditions. Thanks to such features, you have the chance to record even your wildest adventures in terms of sports activities.

What is the image quality ?

Despite being a budget camera, the GoPro HERO+ will impress you with its image quality. Full HD recording is available and the 1920 x 1080 resolution is greatly complemented by the 60 fps shooting rate. The SuperView video mode provides a greater wide-angle perspective for improved immersion. The camera has an 8MP sensor and you can use it for both time lapses and fast-paced scenes.

What is the sound quality ?

The sound quality of the GoPro HERO+ is above average. We must firstly take into account the 48kHz sampling rate and the AAC compression, which provide a good audio quality. The microphone of the camera is also capable of automatic gain control, but it can only record in a mono format. Moreover, there is no way to attach an external microphone. Fortunately, given the destination of such a camera, it should not worry you too much.

Is it waterproof and durable ?

Just like any other GoPro camera, the HERO+ follows a rugged format and it comes encased in a housing that cannot be removed. The waterproof aspect of the camera is probably the most impressing, given the fact that the camera can be taken down to 40 meters in safe conditions. Needless to say, sand and dirt will pose no issues to it.

Conclusion: Should I buy it ?

If you are looking to purchase an action camera and to record your adventures, you should definitely have the GoPro HERO+ in mind, especially due to its $299 price (which is by the way often discounted). When it comes to this camera, you get much more than what you paid for.

  • The Good :
    Rugged design, affordable price, Wi-Fi available
