HERO5 Black is the latest full 4K GoPro camera.  

4K quality, incorporating voice control, one-button operation, touch display, waterproof design, video stabilisation, improved audio, improved stills and now with GPS too. Better wifi capability with Quik application allows videos to be easily uploaded to the cloud.

Unlike its predecessors, this unit is fully waterproof to 10m (33ft), so a waterproof housing is no longer required for underwater operation and the body utilises all of the old mounts, so mounting is just the same as with previous GoPros.

The one touch recording is a really nice touch and the 2" touchscreen monitor makes operation now much simpler than before and a great improvement.

Stereo audio recording is now included as standard.

4k Video Capability

The GoPro Hero 5 is capable of 4K acquisition at 30P onto internal cards (supplied).

Improved Stills Capability

The Hero 5 can shoot 12MP in 30 frame bursts and is also capable of taking RAW photos as well.

HDR - High Dynamic Range

A new wide dynamic range (WDR) mode helps balance out bright lights and darker shadows without losing detail. GoPro's ProTune manual mode is still on-board.

Wifi and Bluetooth

Wifi and Bluetooth functions integrate with Quik application to allow vidoes to be easily uploaded to the cloud using your mobile phone.
