GoPro's Hero5 Black and Session bring overdue improvements

 

The Hero5 Black adds some much-needed features that make it feel like the most mature action camera we've seen yet. That said, some of the additions, like GPS, don't bring too much to the table just yet. Overall, though, it's an improved experience...

Shoots 4K video ; Voice commands work well ; Includes electronic image stabilization

Moderate battery life ; Tiny display makes menu navigation difficult

The cameras are much simpler to use. Heck, more fun to use too -- and getting video and photos out of them is easier than ever. There are still a few areas for improvement, though. I'll never stop wanting more battery life from a GoPro, and I'd love...

The Hero5 Black is a proper successor to the Hero4, and it's worth the upgrade.

GoPro Hero5 Black In-Depth Review

 

I've consolidated all of the Holidays deals I can find into . Massive savings on: Garmin, Suunto, Fitbit, Withings, TomTom, and many more. Easily the best year I've seen in terms of deals on not just older stuff, but legit new stuff. And don't forget...

GoPro Hero5 Black review

 

The best GoPro camera in years

Captures 4K video with stabilization ; Touchscreen for easy controls ; Water-resistant without housing

Controls still have a learning curve ; Mobile apps have limitations ; Discipline needed to edit like a pro

GoPro Hero5 is the 4K action camera that we wanted, with more straightforward menus on a two-inch touchscreen and out-of-the-box water resistance. It still takes commitment to edit and master its controls to be worth the price.

GoPro Hero5 Black review: A new breed of super Hero - Pocket-lint

 

The GoPro Hero5 Black is the GoPro everyone has been waiting for. The company's previous offerings deliver great results, but the new device adds more

Fantastic image and video quality, waterproofing up to 10m without additional housing, great voice control functionality, video image stabilisation, stereo sound, built-in touchscreen

Connection to app still fiddly, mounting system not simple until you know how, battery life could always be better

The GoPro Hero5 Black is the GoPro we have all been waiting for. The company's previous offerings deliver great results, but the new device adds more than enough to warrant an upgrade - and not just because of the great image and video quality.

GoPro Hero 5 Black

 

The Hero 5 Black is the GoPro camera option for those who want the best action cam available right out of the box. You can almost think of the Hero 5 Black as GoPro's "Greatest Hits" compilation. It takes the best features from previous generation...

The best thing about the new GoPros isn't the cameras -- it's the software

 

And don't forget the awesome voice controls and waterproof designs.

Full waterproof design ; Bright, easy to use touchscreen (Hero 5 Black) ; Electronic image stabilization ; Awesome voice controls

GoPro Plus limitations kinda suck ; Auto-upload has some big caveats ; Quik mobile app needs more polish ; Overheat when shooting in 4K

GoPro's latest Hero 5 action cameras up the ante with new waterproof designs, voice controls and software that'll help you create video memories easier and faster.
