NEW YORK, NY--(Marketwired - September 28, 2015) - B&H Photo would like to share the announcement of the GoPro HERO+ and several new accessories. The HERO+ sits between the HERO and the HERO+ LCD, featuring Wi-Fi, which the HERO lacks, but sans LCD screen. For those not familiar with the HERO line, the HERO+ departs from GoPro tradition by incorporating the camera into an integrated waterproof housing, suitable for use at depths up to 131' (the same rating as the HERO4 Standard Housing). While the housing is not removable, the back door still opens to enable access to the micro-USB port and microSD memory card slot. Furthermore, you can still use virtually all of the same mounts, suction cups, selfie sticks and other accessories as you could with the interchangeable housing GoPros -- the accessories just need to work with GoPro's standard three-prong, thumbscrew-tightened mounting interface.

GoPro HERO+ Product Highlights

  • Supports 1080p60 Video
  • Capture 8MP Still Photos up to 5 fps
  • Ultra Wide Angle Glass Lens + SuperView
  • Camera Waterproof to 131'
  • Wi-Fi and Bluetooth Connectivity
  • Interval Capture for Time-Lapse
  • One-Button Operation with QuikCapture
  • Standard and Skeleton Backdoors
  • Flat and Curved Adhesive Mounts Included

The GoPro HERO+ records 1080p60 video -- the mode you'll probably use the most -- by default, and also offers 50, 30, 25, and 720p modes for optimal recording in PAL-region countries, or to conserve card space. When used for still photos, the HERO+ snaps shots at 8MP, and has the option for time-lapse, as well as taking 5 fps photo bursts. Being Wi-Fi-enabled means you can remotely control and monitor the HERO+ via the GoPro app, and even share what you've shot right away.

On the accessories front, GoPro introduces its first Camo Housings, with two patterns to choose from: Realtree MAX-5 and Realtree Xtra. Apart from the finishes, these housings feature the same characteristics as the Standard Housing, offering waterproof protection down to 131'. They are compatible with the HERO3, HERO3+ and HERO4. The housings include a QuickClip for clipping onto a baseball cap or other object up to 10mm (0.4") thick.

For the mounting system, GoPro has released a new Ball Joint Buckle. As the name suggests, this simple adapter sits between the quick-release buckle and the housing, allowing you to rotate or tilt the camera, independently of how the mount is positioned.

The Tripod Mount, a standard accessory with many bundles, is now available kitted with a mini tripod. This compact set of sticks allows you to set up the camera quickly for low-angle shots, or place it on a table or desk. The Tripod Mount itself adapts any GoPro housing or frame to use a standard 1/4"-20 tripod, monopod, or other piece of camera support equipment.

Last is the Portable Power Pack. This on-the-go charging solution contains a 6000 mAh battery, and features two 1.5A USB ports. With a full charge, it will power two GoPros for an estimated two hours, and recharges in as little as four hours. In addition to powering GoPros, the Power Pack may come in handy as a general-purpose USB power source.

GoPro Portable Power Pack $79.99

Packed with user-friendly camera modes and noteworthy newly-available accessories, the waterproof HERO+ is the perfect entry-level GoPro for those who want high-quality capture and on-the-go connectivity.
