GoPro introduced the Hero 5 Series. The new generation of action cameras will appear in two versions - both for professionals and for amateur operators. Our preliminary test shows that the technology meets the highest requirements of its time, but true innovations are in a different area. Software and network integration make captivating movies as easy as never before.
Both cameras offer similar basic functions: 4K video recording, protection against water without an additional casing (at a depth of 10 meters) and simple operation with just two buttons on the device’s body. In addition, widescreen images will be obtained without distortion, and the sound recording quality should be significantly improved due to the presence of as many as three microphones. Both models will also be compatible with the new Karma drones.
The differences between the cameras lie on a different plane. Hero 5 Black is addressed primarily to the most demanding users. She is able to take photos with 12-megapixel resolution and save them in RAW format, shoot videos with an extended dynamic range and thanks to the integrated GPS module receive data on the current location.
The battery remained replaceable and with a capacity of 1220 mAh should provide the device with the same battery life as its predecessor. However, the battery type is new. The 2-inch display on the rear panel shows a clear picture and thanks to the touch layer makes it much easier to control the action camera. The user interface looks very thoughtful and works without delay.
Around Hero 5 action cameras, GoPro is building a whole “networked” eco-system. The goal is to make the way to create a finished movie as simple as possible. The GoPro Plus cloud service is just one element. Additional features are the quick transfer of pictures to a smartphone using the new “Capture” application or the Quik Key USB card reader, which makes WLAN transfer to a smartphone unnecessary.
