Always bring a GoPro Hero 5 Black if you usually plan your weekends doing action-packed adventures such as trekking, cycling or doing serious laps in Olympic-sized pools. Consumers are clamoring how it's the best action camera of the year, and the best GoPro camera yet. This action cam is certainly a remarkable achievement of the action camera company.
Taking everything we loved about the Hero 4 Silver, the new cam is a beefed up version with game changing features that has gotten consumers excited. While maintaining the same price of $30,000 as the Hero 4 Silver, the new model has indispensable features, including built-in waterproofing, and electronic image stabilization. It also has an optional linear field of view video capture mode.
Using a linear view option, GoPro Hero 5 Black addresses the issue of warped lines in wide-angle action cameras since not everyone is a fan of it. This results to awesome photos of people or casual videos at parties. The upgraded design and intuitive interface have also pushed this cam to the top of our list.
Without a doubt, the most useful addition is the built-in waterproofing than can go for up to 33 feet. According to the Hindustan Times, users can have more freedom with their camera without the waterproof case, and most importantly be able to capture pure sound underwater without the casing barrier. However, if you’re looking to capture your deep seas dive or snorkeling trip, pick up a waterproof case that can fit around your camera.
GoPro Hero 5 Black's interface and touchscreen tech is a breath of fresh air, making it so easy to change settings with a swift touch response and easy to access menu. According to the BGR, another surprisingly useful feature is the voice control function which enables users to enjoy capturing moments without the use of hands. Overall, in everything that an action camera is supposed to do, this one certainly does its best.
