Hero5 Black is equipped with a microphone that records ambient sound and understands voice commands . Imagine the situation: in full descent by bike, you can say “take a photo” and the camera will execute the action.
- Touch screen
It is no longer an extra accessory as in previous Hero models, but the 5 Black integrates on its back a 2 ” color touch screen . It serves both to frame and to review the shots and modify the operating variables.
- Second front screen
In spite of the rear panel, GoPro insists with the frontal double-sided screen that characterizes the Hero and that shows at a glance the configuration of operation.
- Submersible without housing
You can immerse the camera up to 10 m in the water. In this dynamic, it does not need casing, but it is possible that commercials of this type will be commercialized to perform deep dives.
- It all boils down to a button
At the top is the only button with the Hero5 Black: a pressure, start the recording or take a photo; Other pressure, stops video recording.
