Some would say it’s been the best time for action cameras, the market is saturated with very affordable options, and GoPro costs back to what it was, but the reality is that the wheel continues and here we have a new Hero 5, ready to give us everything we expect from the market leader.
I think they’ve had to think about things a lot this year and a half without new cameras, and at this time have devised a Hero model with a somewhat different design, the highest technology possible recording, and a stronger body without added.
There are really two new or updated models: Hero 5 Black and Session. The first is the most able to ‘landscape’ design, while the second is an update of the small cube-shaped camera.
The new Session also records 4K
Aesthetic differences are obvious, but there are also in their abilities: Hero 5 Black is like one Hero 4 very strong, able to take pictures at 12 megapixels – can be saved in RAW – and comes with an added it was also highly anticipated, the touch screen 2 – inch sword – previous picture -. Nor lacks the GPS receiver.
The Hero 5 Session is also waterproof and is able to take photos at 10 megapixels, but cannot be saved in RAW or WDR (high dynamic range mode of the house).
There is also no GPS, no screen, so the differences are evident, and so we can check on prices, amounting to 330 dollars for the small model, and 430 dollars for the Black Hero 5.

Besides both chambers are based in the 4K recording with 30 frames per second, not neglect other useful recording modes: 2K at 60 fps, or 1080p capable of recording 120 frames a second. Image stabilization is still digital, something that Sony has overcome his latest creation.
Although the capacity of the slightly lower than the previous model batteries autonomy GoPro said grows by 50%. Another curious detail, the connection is made via a USB-C reversible.
Speech recognition camera action
The most striking novelty, in both chambers, is the ability to recognize voice commands, something very interesting in situations where we lack hands or do not want to be looking at the controls – this had anticipated the GarminVIRB Ultra 30 -. Initially it supports seven languages and we can say things like “GoPro start recording” or “GoPro take a picture”.
The other big news is that both cameras are paired with a cloud that has mounted its creator, called GoPro Plus (surcharge). If we reach a point where you have WiFi connectivity, she can upload the content without computers.Tags: action cameras, GoPro Hero 5, waterproof
