GoPro has had a rough time. But that doesn’t mean they’ve forgotten how to make the thing they’re practically synonymous with: Action cameras. And their latest device looks pretty bonkers. It’s called the HERO7 Black and this tiny action camera features something called HyperSmooth.
When you think action cameras, you think GoPro. It’s like Jacuzzi or Tupperware or Maggi. It’s a brand that has become so synonymous with what they make that they’ve become it. But, despite its global brand recognition, the action camera maker is in dire straits. Things are so bad, in fact, that they could be looking at a sale to Xiaomi.
The latest GoPro HERO will be available in Malaysia starting tomorrow (3rd April). This is GoPro’s new budget action camera and it’s sold exclusively online via Lazada Malaysia. To add more value to your purchase, they are bundling a free GoPro Experience and Training worth RM399 while seats are available.
If you’re into sports, exciting things or just want a small durable camera that you can strap onto anything or throw anywhere, odds are you’ve heard of GoPro. This time, the king of action cameras has a new product for you but it’s not a high-end one with more features than ever.
No, it’s an entry level GoPro that’s designed for the masses called the HERO.
Two weeks ago, GoPro had announced a price revision for its top of the line GoPro HERO6 Black. Initially priced at RM2,399, the GoPro HERO6 Black is now retailing for RM1,849 in Malaysia. If you’re looking for sweeter deal, Shopee is now offering the same action camera at RM200 less.
GoPro was supposed to have a two-year model cycle for its action cameras. The current GoPro HERO5 and HERO5 Session were introduced in Malaysia late last year and now it appears that a new one is launching very soon.
If you’re planning on buying the latest and greatest GoPro, you might want to wait for this instead.

If you need a smartphone for demanding situations, there are a couple of rugged options that can withstand the elements. At MWC 2016, we saw the CAT S60 which is basically the Chuck Norris of smartphones. It’s waterproof up to 5 metres and you can drop it onto concrete from up to 1.8 metres high. The biggest highlight, of course, is its FLIR camera which provides thermal imaging in the palm of your hands.

Action cameras are capable of some pretty incredible things. Their small size and variety of mounts make it easy to strap a camera to something with an interesting point of view and hit record.
