Description: Although the GoPro Hero+ is categorized as budget action cam, well, it’s still a GoPro. It may not have a $500 price tag but it’s not cheap either. It costs around $299. The quality is unquestionable since it’s coming from the GoPro brand. The camera footage looks impressive. It’s vivid, sharp, and details. The color reproduction is vibrant and balanced. It’s too bad that the GoPro Hero+ doesn’t have the high-resolution slow-mo video format and the battery is irremovable, too, so you have to bring a powerbank to charge it.

Effective Pixels How much effective pixels the action camera has, it's measured in MPX (megapixel). These pixels are used for capturing the incoming light. These pixels are the ones that take the image/video. New cameras have the ability to decreas the pixel number, which you would use if you want to make a picture smaller. This process doesn't use less pixels, it just resizes the image.
8 Mpx (megapixels)
Video Resolution This is the pixel number that a display or a camera sensor has (refers to the digital image of the action camera). If the action camera has a higher resolution, that means that it is capable of taking shots that have more pixels. If you have more pixels then they can provide the display with the ability of more visual information. So, simply put, the higher the resolution, the better images/videos your action camera will be able to take. The best resolution an action camera can have is 4K, Ultra HD (3840 x 2160).
Video Frame Rate The frame rate or FPS at which the action camera takes it pictures/videos. Many high quality cameras record at 30 fps. Frame rate or FPS in many occasions is reffered to as frame frequency. This is measured in hertz. Most of the movies are made at 24 fps so, you won't be needing more than 30 fps on your action camera.
