Thus, GoPro has announced the new Hero5 Black action camera with features that are a step up from its predecessor. It aims to become the better choice in action cameras for the people who wish to get on board the GoPro bandwagon.

The new GoPro Hero5 Black is designed to be smaller and yet better than the Hero4 Black. But mind you, both come with the same sensor unlike other versions of GoPro where the updated version comes with a higher resolution camera. But fret not, the GoPro Hero5 Black is capable of recording in 4K along with other resolution formats. But there are also other features that make this new GoPro action camera a better and more improved one.

One of the new features of the GoPro Hero5 Black is the waterproof design without the need of a separate housing. This makes it more ideal to use underwater since the mic is able to do better when recording without the need of an additional housing. Although the new GoPro Hero5 Black is only waterproof up to a depth of 33 feet or 10 meters, that is more than enough for the casual user. Those who wish to reach greater depths may need to use a separate protective housing for this new action camera. Other features of the new GoPro Hero5 Black is a touchscreen, advanced photo modes as well as being voice command ready. The new GoPro Hero5 Black costs around $400, which is now available in the GoPro site.
