It's time for an upgrade, all you GoPro fanatics out there! The company just released the slick Hero 5 Black and the small but incredible Hero 5 Session. Both cameras were introduced during the launch of the GoPro Karma drone at Squaw Valley Ski Resort in Northern California.
The Hero 5 Black is now here to take over the hugely popular Hero 4 (launched in 2014) as the company's new flagship camera.
So how much should you save up for these little mean machines? Well, the Hero 5 Black will retail for $399 or P19,048 while the Session is worth $299 or P14,274. That's a not-so-bad deal considering the nifty new features that await its loyalists.
The Black and the Session are both waterproof, have voice control which can support up to seven languages, and can automatically back-up precious photos and video footage through their new subscription system, the GoPro Plus. The catch is, you have to shell out roughly about P200 ($5) per month to avail of this feature. The first month is free though.
The best part about them is, they both come with professional-grade electronic image stabilization, which is something GoPro is offering for the first time. This will make your shots look better and smoother when you're out conquering one thrillfest after another .
There are also notable differences between the two. Similar to the Hero 4, the Hero 5 Black is also capable of shooting 4K clips at 30 frames per second with its 12-megapixel lens. It also comes with a two-inch touchscreen LCD, has RAW and Wide Dynamic Range modes, and a built-in GPS feature.
The Session, on the other hand, has a 10-megapixel lens due to its smaller size. Obviously, it has no screen, is unable to capture RAW photos and Wide Dynamic Range video, and has no built-in GPS.
Whichever you choose between these two formidable cams, get ready to chronicle your many fun-filled and hair-raising adventures, stat! It's guaranteed to be super rad.
