They Call it Karma… GoPro

GoPro has become the de facto action camera because it’s simple enough for anyone to use and small enough to go anywhere. It’s just a supremely good value for the price. Sony, Olympus, and even Xioami have been nipping at GoPro’s heels with cheaper cameras that often have more features. But now, two years after the last big Hero camera, GoPro is back with a significant update that packs in more features, retails for cheaper, and sacrifices only a minute amount of battery in the process.

GoPro Hero 5 Family

The GoPro Hero5 is the second action camera from GoPro, after the Hero4 Silver, to feature a touch screen on the back. The Hero4 came in two variants, Silver and Black. The Silver had fewer cool video modes but included that user-friendly touchscreen. The Black had all the great video modes, like shooting at 4K at 30fps and 1080p at 120fps, but lacked a touchscreen.

The Hero5 merges the best features of both variants and adds-on a few more like image stabilization, which is useful when trying to get a smooth shot on the back of a dune buggy or a sick tracking shot while perched on your CitiBike. The Hero5 is also the first GoPro with GPS built in, which is great if you’re travelling a lot and want to know where exactly you shot that last great video.
