GoPro intros $180 HD Hero 960 action camera

Action camera maker GoPro has released the HD Hero 960 bundle, its most affordable to date. Unlike the company's flagship 1080p HD Hero, which costs $300, the new device is priced at $180. What buyers give up is resolution, as it's now capped at 1280x960, and no Hero Bus expansion port, so users can't connect external displays or batteries.

The camera can record at the 960p or 720p resolution at 30FPS, or at 848x480 at 60fps. Also retained is the hands-free five-megapixel timelapse photo mode. A new feature involves the One Button Mode that puts the camera into video or photo mode and automatically starts recording or capturing images once it's turned on. The camera's clear housing can be submerged and keep the camera dry at depths of up to 180 feet.

The HD Hero 960 costs $180.

    bad product name

    It should at least mention the Darwin Awards as part of the product name, as those are the people most likely to be wearing this camera.
