This article is about the basic shape GoPro; not about the session.
The most famous action cam known as GoPro released GoPro Hero5 last year September. Size and the Shape are totally different then the old model. You don’t need that huge housing case when you go diving or other activities because it is water proof under 33ft. 4K video is included in the feature. Interesting point that I think this hero5 black have is the RAW photo mode. None of the action cam that released now can take photo in RAW data. This cam is the exception. GoPro Hero5 Black cost $399 in amazon. You can say it’s quite expensive. If you are the first time to buying it I won’t recommend this. Then what’s the other choice?
Me, I’m the cam amateur so what I bought is GoPro Hero+ LCD. Compare w/ new GoPro this model can’t take 4k videos, No RAW photo mode, etc. BUT it is super nice that you have LCD screen on the back side. There is no time lag, I always take movies by 1080p 30fps. Still can take it by 60fps but it is too much for me. Only thing that you have to know is that battery is unremovable because the housing case are unremovable. You need to charge it by connecting the micro USB and the body together.
Ultimately, if you want to take good pictures and hyper nice quality video get GoPro Hero5 Black Edition. Just wanna have fun with your friends or get board easily? why don’t you buy GoPro Hero+ LCD?
