What people are saying about it:

“It is small and light enough to take anywhere. The voice command is great! The only issue was the lack of owners manual when I first opened up the box. I didn’t even know what model it was. I checked online and guess that it was a GoPro 2018. I got lucky, it was. It will complement my big camera when I travel.” – Dale on

“This is my first GoPro camera. I bought her to try out what she could and like it. Now I ordered GoPro Hero 6 … This is amazing … I can not imagine any adventure without my GoPro friend.” – Иван Р. on

“I’ve had a GoPro before but it was an extremely old one. I mean it did not have a screen on the back and i had to hook it up to my computer to see my photos and videos. I got this camera for my 15th birthday on Monday and i am absolutely obsessed with it. the quality is just amazing, the screen on the back is so helpful, it’s so updated with all of the features that you can use just on the little screen, and it connects to my GoPro app on my phone so easily and it is so easy to get my photos and videos onto my phone. I also got the 32GB SD card and the shorty tripod and they are awesome with it. I highly recommend this camera to anyone, new to GoPro or not. Such a great price for all the amazing things you can get out of it. No wonder they call it the “budget GoPro”! Thank you so much GoPro!” – Kate M. on

“Just received my new Hero 2018 a few days ago. I had purchased a GoPro a few years ago, the more $$expensive$$ one, was disappointed in it and sent it back. I’ve been watching and waiting for another to come out that is a more reasonable price ……and here it is! This one is pretty basic, but I like the voice control, nice little addition. If you are going to buy this camera, plan on buying an extra battery because the battery life is almost non-existent. It starts draining as soon as it’s turned on, and quickly. I’m a camera fanatic, have lots of them and as far as batteries go, this one would be at the bottom of the page or….on a scale of 1-10, with 1 being the best and 10 being the worst, this battery would be given a 9.5 . That should be the next improvement made to GoPro cameras. The free SD card with purchase was helpful, thank you.” – J on

“I had the GoPro Hero3+ Silver. What a change. This new GoPro Hero has better batteries and I love taking pictures and recording videos with it because of the rear camera. Also, seeing somethings we just captured is way easier with the display.
Worth every dollar.”
