The GoPro HERO5 Black includes improved video image stabilization and stereo audio with three microphones to pull the best sound quality. To ensure that, GoPro added Advanced Wind Noise Reduction to the HERO5 line of cameras. An easy user interface means you can operate the GoPro HERO5 Black POV camera out of the box or on the go, plus it now recognizes specific voice commands.

Versatile Capture Abilities

GoPro removed the need for a housing for your POV camera by making it waterproof so you can take your GoPro HERO5 snowboarding, jet skiing, and diving to a depth of 33 feet (10m). With over 30 mounts available, you can even capture footage from your surfboard or on the back of certain pets for a unique POV.

The GoPro HERO5 Black can capture 4K video at 30fps (Burst Time Lapse), plus 12MP photo stills, RAW + WDR photos. RAW photos provide increased flexibility for your post production or photo editing software.

Pair your HERO5 Black with an optional Smart Remote for one button functionality.

Voice Control & Languages

GoPro added on demand capture with their new hands-free voice control which includes simple commands to enhance your ability to capture action footage, including photos while shooting video or 30-frame short action sequences. Voice control of the HERO5 camera is easy-to-use with pre-determined phrases like: “GoPro take photo.” You can tell the camera to start recording a video or change modes without fumbling with buttons or touchscreen settings.

The GoPro HERO5 supports 7 languages: English (recognizing 3 accents: U.K., U.S., Australian), French, Italian, German, Spanish (recognizing 2 accents: EU, North America), Chinese, and Japanese.

Here are the 12 included voice commands:

  • GoPro Start Recording
  • GoPro HiLight (this adds a HiLight tag while recording video)
  • GoPro Stop Recording
  • GoPro Take a Photo
  • GoPro Shoot Burst
  • GoPro Start Time Lapse
  • GoPro Stop Time Lapse
  • GoPro Video Mode
  • GoPro Photo Mode
  • GoPro Time Lapse Mode
  • GoPro Burst Mode
  • GoPro Turn Off

Video Stabilization

Enhanced video stabilization means that every video you capture produces the professional, smooth image look of larger cameras. Some describe it as dream-lik, for it eliminates much of the bounce and shake accustomed with POV camera footage. 

As you know, shaky footage takes viewer out of the moment. GoPro turned Image Stabilization on by default. This auto setting will smooth out your jittery video to remove most of the distortion. It maintains the wide field of view with fisheye lens.

Touchscreen Display & Settings

The 2” touchscreen display provides the ability to preview or playback your footage, change settings, or trim your recorded moments. The interface is as easy-to-use as a smartphone and includes appropriate brightness for both exterior or interior situations.

You can fine tune exposure settings with on-screen control. Also, multiple modes and settings now use full words instead of acronyms which result in a more intuitive new user experience. You can view different resolutions or frame rates or modes.

Field of View settings include: Wide Angle, Superview, Medium, Linear, and Narrow. Use the Linear settings to remove the fisheye or barrel distortion.

Protune settings include: Color, White Balance (WB), ISO, Shutter, Sharp, Audio (on/off), and Protune.

A Continuous Photo mode lets you capture a series of photos continuously when you hold the Shutter button down until you release the Shutter button or until 30 pictures have been taken, whichever comes first. Remember that the Continuous Photo setting will continue until you switch it off. You can even establish the rate photos are taken with the choice of:

  • 3 photos every 1 second
  • 5 photos every 1 second
  • 10 photos every 1 second

Another setting is 1080p Time Lapse Video. This permits stitched time lapse footage which can be sent directly to your smartphone or social media.

Additional Features

You can also auto upload to the Cloud and capture your location data via GPS. The built-in WiFi frequency is 5GHz and 2.4GHz.

HERO5 Black battery is a rechargeable Lithium-Ion battery rated at 1220 mAh, 4.40V with increased current capacity, compared to the HERO4. Otherwise you can use the USB-C cable which is provided with the camera and an existing USB wall charger or computer USB port to charge your camera battery. GoPro notes that it can take up to 2 hours using a wall charger or up to 4 hours with a computer USB port.

Includes a USB-C port to support fast charging with the optional GoPro Supercharger.
