GoPro adds a low-cost WiFi model to its action camera range

GoPro has added a more affordable WiFi model to its action camera line, with the Hero+ arriving to plug a gap in the company’s range.

The new snapper comes with an 8-megapixel sensor and shoots 1080p video at 60 frames per second, a marked improvement on the original Hero.

The GoPro Hero was only capable of shooting at 30 frames per second, and came with a 5-megapixel sensor.

You’ll also get Bluetooth and WiFi connectivity for your $200 (£170), so you can share your photos and videos wirelessly without spending upwards of $300.

GoPro is also catering for action cammers on a budget by reducing the price of its compact Hero4 Session to $300, knocking a full $100 off its asking price.

The Hero+ will be available to buy worldwide from October 4.
