The GoPro Hero + LCD camera has been launched.  I’ve been wanting one of these cameras for a long time. It has a touch screen and shares a number of features with the entry-level Hero.  At depths of up to 131 feet or 40 meters, the camera is waterproof and quite rugged.  The GoPro Hero + LCD camera is directly built into its waterproof housing.  That is an indication that you will not be able to switch to something like the Blackout or Frame housing.  However, Touch and Skeleton Backdoors are included and you will be able to use these instead of the rear Backdoor of the camera case.   The GoPro Hero + LCD camera

It adds both integrated Wi-Fi and Bluetooth with support for the iOS and Android GoPro App.  The GoPro App can be used for easy shot preview and camera control.  Content can also be shared with a smart device. 

The GoPro Smart Remote can also be used with this camera.  The GoPro Hero + LCD offers 8 megapixels for still images, with speeds as high as 5 frames per second.  In addition, you can record full high density videos as high as 1080p/60.  

Its features include in-camera video trimming that eliminates the need for a computer and allows you to rapidly edit and share content.  In essence, you will be able to cut any footage that is not extreme enough prior to sharing it through the app.  There is also HiLight Tagging that can be used to mark notable moments while footage is being recorded or played back.  This will enable you to find them easily later on.

The camera allows you to directly share your content to Facebook, Twitter and Instagram.  In addition, there is a QuikCapture setting that allows you to use a single button press to power on the device and start capturing life’s precious moments.  It supports microSD cards that go up to 64GB and each battery charge enables approximately 2 hours of recording.  It is important to note that the battery is integrated and as a result, it cannot be switched out for a fully charged battery when the juice runs out after being used for 2 hours.

GoPro Hero + LCD camera

The GoPro Hero + LCD camera is being marketed to individuals who prefer the convenience and simplicity of an all-in-one design.  These individuals will appreciate the wireless connectivity, the enhanced photo and video modes and the inclusion of the LCD screen.

The GoPro Hero + LCD is ideal for capturing life’s precious moments and sharing them with your loved ones.
