The GoPro HERO5 Black and Session cameras have been announced for release on 2nd October.
- Waterproof but only to 10m, so you'll still need a housing for most diving
- Still only 4k 30p max, same as the HERO4, which is a little disappointing as I was dreaming of 60p @ 4k
- Electronic Image Stablization (EIS) but limited to 1080p as it's stabilized and cropped in software, not hardware
- More bells and whistles such as voice control and integration with their new Karma drone
So really there's nothing significantly new for the underwater shooter who wants to shoot 4k. Unless I've missed something? Might still get one for trekking etc. and for some underwater wide angle when shooting macro.
