GoPro Hero - GoPro's most "affordable" action camera yet!
The camera, designed around a GoPro Hero 5 /6 chassis, offers water resistance out of the box with no added casing - a major selling point as no special accessories will be required to make it waterproof. The camera also features compatibility with existing GoPro Hero 5/6 accessories as well as the ability to use GoPro Hero 5 batteries -making the camera a great backup for someone who already owns a flagship GoPro camera . The rear features a touchscreen display and this is same as the one found on the flagship models. The Hero 2018 also features support for GoPRo's voice commands and Quik stories (Automatic video rendering).
Overall the GoPro Hero appears to be a good addition to the current Hero lineup, the new model , which is a far cry from the original Hero launched many years prior is certainly worth the money , but with prices fluctuating, chances are that GoPro might eventually knock at least $50 off by the end of the year. And so if you can wait, the Hero 2018 can be had for less, making it a good deal if you want a reliable and waterproof (out of the box) action camera experience without burning $300-400.
