GoPro is one of the pioneers in the action camera industry with products that always stay on the top of top-selling list. When GoPro released its HERO4 action camera, it quickly became cream of the crop, but it didn’t take too long for copycats to appear on the market. Although most of HERO4’s competitors were nonessentials, they did offer features that made it challenging for GoPro to produce an appealing upgrade. Yet the company responded to the challenge excellently. When GoPro HERO5 Black 4K Ultra HD camera finally surfaces, it is proven to be so earthshaking that it successfully outclasses not only HERO4’s competitors, but also the previous flagship. There are many great things that customers can expect when buying GoPro’s newest flagship model.

HERO5 Black 4K Ultra HD Camera Features
The release of HERO5 action camera comes with two surprises. First, at the time of its October release, this flagship camera is shipped with price tag that is $100 cheaper than that of HERO4. Second, with price that is only $399, this small and versatile camera boasts a capability to capture 4K image and video, a feature that is very rarely found in an action camera. With 4K recording capability at 30 frames per second, this versatile camera is reliable enough to capture HD video with no visible lag. The 30-fps recording feature, however, is only available if you record with Wide mode. If you use SuperView mode, the framerate will drop to 24 fps. Nevertheless, with medium and linear shoot (to reduce barrel distortion) at 2.7K and narrow shoot at 1080p, the petite camera is handy enough to be an all-around action camera.

To improve its versatility, the camera sports some advanced features that its competitors are lacking. The tiny 2-inch display at the back of the camera is useful not only for controlling how the camera shoots an object, but also to edit captured images. The camera also supports touch and voice control, which is definitely useful to improve its control. The most notable extra feature that this camera offers is its waterproof design, which makes it useful to capture photos and videos even in the most unlikely scenarios.

Verdict
GoPro Hero 5 Black
With its affordable price and excellent features, HERO5 Black 4K Ultra HD camera will definitely be a reliable and versatile action camera that can be used in many different scenarios. For adventurous people who need an excellent instrument to capture their best moments in photographs and videos, there is no camera that can beat HERO5 at the moment.
