GoPro Hero5 Black the ultimate action camera

GoPro Hero 5 Black with voice control and GPS tag

GoPro just announced among their Karma drone two new action cameras, the Hero5 Black and the HERO5 Session. Both new sports cameras will be available for order starting with October 2nd.

Generally many GoPro users think that if it is not a GoPro it is not a truly action camera. Frankly, I tested and reviewed many sports cameras but none convinced me in terms of image quality. Every model has its own drawback.

Unlike the Hero5 Session, the Hero5 Black features GPS tagging, which means that geo location is automatically added to the photos.

Definitely those who are planning to capture still photos with their action camera will appreciate that this GoPro Hero5 Black is capable to store photos in uncompressed RAW format.

Honestly the voice control sounds pretty nice but I’m curious how many of you will truly use this feature.

Compared to the older GoPro models the new Hero5 Black has a more rugged design. It can be immersed under the water of depth up to 10 meters without additional housing (case).
