After the Hero 4, the GoPro Hero 5 is the next big thing in the GoPro lineup. This powerful device takes action cameras to a whole new level with a touchscreen at the back and a comparatively affordable price tag. If you’re one of those people who enjoy sharing videos, the GoPro Hero 5 makes that super easy for you. Better yet, you can use your camera in any environment.
Go pro Hero5 has built-in GPS, which enables you to know where you shot your previous videos. If you travel a lot, this can be useful.
The use of voice commands
A big difference between GoPro Hero 4 and the Hero 5 is the use of voice commands in the latter model. You can easily issue a voice command to instruct your GoPro Hero 5 device to either start or stop recording. Furthermore, you can tag those important moments while recording is ongoing.
Though the GoPro Hero 4 and Hero 5 camera look somewhat similar, the Hero 5 sports remarkable improvements. This camera is totally waterproof and can capture incredible footage submerged 30 feet under water. On the other hand, the GoPro Hero 4 requires an additional case to still be waterproof this deep down.
GoPro has also launched a cloud service (GoPro Plus), where you can store all your footage and access it anytime and from anywhere.
Why you should buy GoPro Hero 5
This is just about the best GoPro camera in the market right now. The Hero 5 goes for just $528, which is a big deal given that the Hero 4 sold at $600 when it launched back in 2014. Below are some more reasons why you probably choose the Hero 5 as your go-to model:
- You can easily preview and playback your video shots
- Easy to change settings and trim your footage
- It is waterproof up to 30 feet without a housing
