There are two Hero5 cameras in the GoPro range: the GoPro Hero5 Black and the GoPro Hero5 Session.
The Hero5 cameras feature an updated stereo mic and advanced wind-noise reduction system. The camera gets three microphones and automatically picks which two to use based on the amount of wind and background noise. The new cameras also do away with the waterproof housing with built-in waterproofing down to 33ft / 10m. GoPro also says the new Hero5 is compatible with all current mounts as well as the Karma Drone.
New for the Hero5 cameras is the voice control system, which allows the camera to be operated using catchphrases like “GoPro take a photo,” and “GoPro start recording,” and at launch, the Hero5 will recognize voice commands in seven languages (English, French, Italian, German, Spanish, Chinese and Japanese). They’ve also adopted the one button on/off and record system debuted on the Session cameras for the Hero5 and included a built in GPS Chip.
Both new Hero5 cameras also get what the brand is calling “Professional-Grade Electronic Video Stabilization”. This new image stabilization narrows the frame by about 10 percent, which GoPro claims to be ‘far less than other technology’ from other brands.
For the Hero5 Black, GoPro has combined the best features of the Hero4 Silver and Black, with the new camera featuring both a rear touchscreen and the ability to shoot 4k footage at 30fps. The Hero5 Black can also shoot 12mp RAW or WDR (wide dynamic range) images, allowing for extra details to be captured in the highlights and shadows.
The updated Hero5 Session retains the one-button on/off record system, but like the Hero5 Black edition gets voice control as well as the ability to shoot 4k at 30fps and 10mp photos. While the one button system simplifies operating the camera, it also means you’ll need the app to change camera settings.
