The HERO 5 Black has a 2-inch touch display to simplify the controls of the camera, but it all begins with a one-button control to power on the camera to start recording automatically. Once it is on, you can capture videos with resolutions up to 4K at 30 frames per second and professional still images of 12 MP with enhanced low-light performance on RAW and Wide Dynamic Range (WDR) formats.
Voice control has been added to further simplify the use of different functions. The camera has 10 commands in seven different languages, just in case you happen to be hurling down a slope and your hands are busy. So whether you speak English, German, French, Italian, Spanish or Chinese (with more languages on the way), voice control should understand you.

By now you’ve probably heard about the latest addition to the GoPro family: The Hero4 Session. We’re stoked to say that it has arrived at our Moscow, ID location. So what’s the big deal about it? Let’s take a look at some of its key features:
First of All, It’s a Little Guy.
According to GoPro, the Session is “50% smaller and 40% lighter than other HERO4 cameras.” Which makes it’s easier to mount, and GoPro doesn’t skimp on the mounts and accessories. The sky’s the limit when it comes to mounting options.
But just because it’s little doesn’t mean it’s not powerful. On the contrary. Here’s some of it’s best features:
High-resolution 1440p30 and 1080p60 video
High frame rate of 720p100 video enables smooth slow-motion playback
Capture 8MP single photos, Time Lapse photos at set intervals from 0.5 to 60 seconds, and Burst photos at 10 frames per second
Rugged and waterproof to 33’ (10m), eliminating the need for a separate housing
Easy one-button control
Features SuperView™, a GoPro-exclusive video mode that captures the world’s most immersive wide-angle field of view
Dual mic system -When you’re filming in windy conditions the camera automatically switches to the mic that’s best-suited for capturing optimal audio
When the camera is mounted upside down, Auto Image Rotation automatically adjusts the capture orientation to right-side up so there’s no need to flip your footage in post-production
