The Hero5 Black Edition Action Cam
GoPro has taken the wraps off its latest action cameras when the company released the Hero 5 Black and Hero 5 Session. Like their predecessors, they’re small and easy to mount, but host a number of improved features. It is worth mentioning that both of them feature 4K / 30fps video recording capabilities. Most importantly, GoPro also joined the voice control and cloud storage world for the first time.
Now when you want to take your Hero 5 Black or Session camera for a spot of underwater shooting, you’ll no longer need a dive housing case. It can survive down to 10 metres deep without being damaged.
Other features shared between the Hero5 Black Edition and Session include 4K video recording, the ability to auto-upload photos and videos to the cloud when charging, and a simple one-button control system.
The Hero5 Black Edition & Session
The Hero5 Black and Session also both have electronic stabilization during video capture to ensure footage isn’t as shaky and 3 built-in speakers.
There’s a new linear view setting for both cameras too which gives you wide angle video and photos without the heavy distortion usually associated with extreme wide angle lenses.
Like the Hero 4 Silver and Black additions, it has a touchscreen on the back which can be used as a small monitor, and as a control system to change video and photo shooting settings.
GoPro Hero5 series sport cameras all support voice control ( currently supports seven languages, including Chinese). And when you charge the camera, it will automatically upload the shooting photos and videos to the cloud.
Compared to the regular releasing product line of sport cameras, the official debut of the Karma RC drone opens a new journey of GoPro. By the way, GoPro sport cameras (Hero4 and its upgraded models) extremely match to Karma RC drone. And this becomes the obvious advantage if it enters the UAV market. If you like FPV shooting, you can have a try.
