GoPro HERO+ LCD ReviewThe new Hero+ is GoPro’s entry level LCD camera as evidenced by the specifications and features it comes with, especially when compared to some of the company’s top range lenses such as the GoPro Hero 4. Surprisingly though, the price tagged on this entry level GoPro camera does not hint to entry level in any way. It retails at around 300 USD which might sound like a little too much for a small and compact camera like this one. However, the price can easily be explained away by some of the features this camera sports. A good example of the GoPro accessories is the live-view screen which is nowadays hard to find in action cameras. This particular live-view screen is even touch, enabling to make it even more precious. While the live-view screen is definitely the most amazing feature in the Hero+, there are a number of other features worth mentioning such as the Wi-Fi and Bluetooth connection options. Besides data and image sharing, these connectivity options also allow for control and adjustment of the camera’s settings remotely, from a Smart Remote. The Smart Remote however does not come included in the package when you buy the camera. You will have to purchase it separately. Yes, I know, after spending 300 dollars on this camera you may probably not be willing to spend more, but I assure you it is worth your money. Besides changing camera settings, the Smart Remote also allows you to take pictures, start/stop recordings, etc. The sensor for the Hero+ is an 8 MP lens, which is a relatively higher resolution compared to previous models. This translates to better image and video quality relative to that in the Hero model. In addition, instead of the onetime 0.5s time interval setting option, you have seven. There is also an included feature that allows for loop record and, as a result, the video maker can use the Hero+ as a dash cam with great ease. In terms of design, the Hero 4 is in some ways like the Hero that came before it. The most obvious of these similarities is the permanent rugged housing. Like the Hero, the Hero+ cannot be pulled out of its housing, which is a good and bad thing, depending on how you look at it. In a way, it is a protective measure of sorts since the camera will ever fall out from the scratch resistant housing. While this is an exceptionally good thing, especially when taking shots in rugged landscapes where most cameras easily fall off the stand, the down side of this is that the housing get damaged and replacing it for a new one may not be possible. The permanence of the housing also means that the Hero+’s battery is not removable, so should the battery run low in the middle of a shooting there will be no quick swapping of batteries. But do not fret. There is a provision to connect to external batteries. One can also plug in the camera to charge by using the provided USB port.
