Before buy a Hero 7

Hi!

Most of electronic companies make different versions, for different countries. I assume that, they make low quality versions for developing countries. Is GoPro do the same? If do, how do I identify a quality version? 

 

Thankyou!

Re: Before buy a Hero 7

Hello @superwave81662. The only differing versions are the HERO7 Black, Silver and White, in terms of features/functions. The versions of each model are the same wherever. The firmware version though, changes as we continue to update  for performance improvement and/or new features. Still, these changes are applicable to all camera models. Thanks!

Re: Before buy a Hero 7

Gopro made three models and saith they are to cut down on cost. hero white and Silver and Black.. Gopro does not lower the grade, its Illegal to do so unless noted.
