GoPro follows up their Jump virtual reality platform announcement with the launch of new camera on the entry-level end–the HERO+ LCD. Capturing high definition 1080p60 video and 8MP photos, the HERO+ LCD features a touch display for easy shot framing, settings control, and access to an all-new in-camera video trimming feature. Like the entry-level HERO, the HERO+ LCD is built directly into its waterproof housing for simplicity.
Rugged and waterproof to 131 feet or 40m, the HERO+ LCD includes advanced features like HiLight Tagging and in-camera video trimming to make it easier to identify and share your favorite moments. HiLight Tagging lets you mark key moments while recording and during playback so you can easily find them later, and the video trimming feature allows you to create short clips in-camera for easier sharing without transferring to and editing on your computer first.
Built-in Wi-Fi and Bluetooth connect the HERO+ LCD to your phone for camera control and shot preview when your camera is mounted or out of reach. The GoPro App enables you to share your videos and photos on Instagram, Facebook, or Twitter, and now works together with the video trimming feature.
You can power on your GoPro and record automatically with the press of a single button when using the QuikCapture setting. The rechargeable battery delivers two hours of recording time, and the HERO+ LCD supports microSD cards up to 64GB.
The GoPro HERO+ LCD touchscreen action camera retails for $299.99 and will start shipping June 7.
