The case has got most in common with the budget end GoPro Hero, you can’t take it out, although you can remove the back door (allowing you to use a floaty back door and something like my DIY GPS BacPac), and it’s in the same sized case as the other Hero 4 range of cameras.
Will the GoPro Hero+ LCD work with my KNEKT dome port and trigger?
Yes, it’s the same form factor as a Hero 4 which is good news for people who want to use it with a KNEKT pistol grip trigger, or the KNEKT KSD6 Dome port, as it will be compatible with the full range of accessories that the Hero 4 cameras work with.
The still photo capabilities are somewhere in between the two cameras I have, the resolution is 8MP but there’s no mention at this stage of the burst mode capabilities (although it looks promising as the time lapse can do a photo every 0.5 seconds, like the Hero 4).
The GoPro Hero+ LCD shoots 1080p at 60 frames per second, that’s really good for surf footage, and one of the modes I use most on my Hero 4 Silver, it also shoots 720p at 60fps, but I wouldn’t be surprised if that frame rate gets a boost with a firmware update, just like the Hero 4 Black did some time after it’s launch.
It’s also got the wifi and bluetooth connectivity that the Hero 4 range of cameras have, so you can use it with the app or remote control.
So far so good, I’ll put up an update when the official announcement is made with the full spec’s.
