The angler can never have enough memories of those great fishing moments – well now with the HERO, the one that got away is “captured” in 1080 HD and you can share the moment and re-live it time and time again. Even the grand-kids will have to believe you.
At Angling Active we are very excited about the amount of technology you get for your money with this camera. We think it is the best value product we have seen in a long time and every angler can use it.
You can film at 30fps at 1080p or even 60fps at 720p to catch every detail in slo-mo. You can take wide view 5mp still images. The burst mode function takes 5 still images per second ensuring you get the ultimate shot of the fish going in the net, and then there is the fantastic time lapse feature allowing you to capture the sun rising as you fish dawn, or the river rising in a storm.
There are lots of automatic features that mean you don't have to worry about the amount of light in the shot, or focus, and the “superview” means that up to 170 degrees is captured depending on the resolution you choose so you are confident the action is in frame.
The downsides are minimal: There is no wifi connectivity to use with the app, and the battery is integrated into the camera so you have to charge it as opposed to changing the battery, but the battery life is exceptional - more than enough for a day outing capturing the best moments. Additionally, as with all cameras, you have to purchase a memory card on top of the HERO. It is recommended you purchase up to 32gb Mico SD cards for the HERO. We have these available in store.
Additionally, most of the existing GoPro mounts and accessories work with the HERO.
GoPro video quality.
HERO captures the same immersive footage that’s made GoPro one of the best-selling cameras in the world. With gorgeous 1080p30 and 720p60 video, and user-friendly modes like QuikCapture, SuperView and Auto Low Light, it’s easier than ever to get the shot and achieve professional-quality results every time.
Diverse photo capture.
A variety of photo capture options gives you the power to document your passions any way you want. Shoot 5MP still photos to share with friends on Facebook, Instagram and more. Time Lapse mode automatically captures a photo every half-second. It’s great for gear-mounted shots when the shutter button is out of reach, or capturing a series of photos so you can pick the best ones. Burst mode shoots up to 5 photos in one second—perfect for fast-action sequences.
Rugged, waterproof, all-in-one design.
The HERO camera is built directly into a rugged housing1 that’s waterproof to 131’ (40m). It’s designed to withstand dirt, sand, water and nearly anything else you can throw at it. So whether you’re getting after surf, snow or singletrack—or just splashing in the pool with your friends—you can take it with you without a worry.
Small + lightweight.
Weighing just 3.9 ounces, HERO is super small, ultra portable and perfect for low-profile mounting. Its compact design means you can comfortably wear it or mount it to your gear as you capture your favorite activities, or slip it in your pocket or bag to take anywhere.
Be ready to capture the moment at a moment’s notice with new QuikCapture mode. It turns your GoPro into a one-button camera, allowing you to power on and start recording automatically with the press of a single button. Press once to record video, press and hold for two seconds to capture Time Lapse photos. Never worry again about missing an epic shot.
World’s most immersive video.
HERO features SuperView, a GoPro-exclusive video mode that captures the world’s most immersive wide-angle perspective. It allows you to capture more of yourself and your surroundings in the shot—resulting in captivating, ultra engaging footage of every adventure.
Auto Low Light mode.
Let the camera do the thinking for you. Auto Low Light mode intelligently changes frame rates based on lighting conditions for optimal low-light performance, enabling you to move between bright and dark environments without having to adjust your camera settings.
Ultra wide-angle glass lens.
HERO’s ultra wide-angle glass lens enables the extra immersive perspective GoPro is famous for. It’s great close-range selfies and gear-mounted shots—delivering a unique perspective and engaging footage of you and your world.
Capture audio of all your adventures—from hoots and hi5s to roaring crowds and crashing waves. The included Skeleton Backdoor enables enhanced audio during low-speed activities in dry, dirt-free environments.
