Must Have for GoPro Fans and Budding Mobile Filmmakers!

The GoPro HERO5 Black is the biggest upgrade and leap forward for the GoPro camera since the first model the company has ever shipped. It has top-of-the-line specifications and they solved most of the initial pain points of previous generation GoPro cameras.

Here’s a quick look at the specifications for better appreciation.

GoPro HERO5 Black Spec Sheet

  • 12.0-megapixel camera
  • Can Shoot 4K Video at 30fps, 1440 at 80fps, 1080 at 120fps
  • 2.0-inch touch-screen display
  • RAW support
  • Built-in GPS
  • Larger Battery at 1220mAh
  • Voice Control (7 Languages)
  • Native Water Resistance (Up to 33ft)
  • Advanced Video Stabilisation
  • Cloud Upload via GoPro Plus Subscription Service
  • Stereo Audio (3 microphones)

Apart from your smartphone, the GoPro HERO5 Black is probably the only mobile and portable camera you’ll need, especially if you want to capture video. You can shoot pretty much any kind of format of video, including the crazy awesome slow motion shots thanks for the 1080 at 120fps mode.

The 2.0-inch touchscreen display combined with the voice control makes it even easier to use. No more fumbling around with the iPhone application or an extra remote control that you have to pack in your bag. The native water resistance is also a major upgrade since this eliminates the need for the external casing (which was a chore to have in the first place). Lastly, we get a good bump in audio quality recording thanks to the stereo audio set-up that they packed into this thing.

If that’s not enough, the Hero5 BLACK is compatible with all GoPro accessories, including the newly announced GoPro Karma drone.

Here’s the official video that they released for GoPro HERO5 Black to get you even more excited:

We’re definitely psyched for this one and we’ll immediately get our hands on a unit as soon as it becomes available locally.

The GoPro HERO5 Black will sell for $399.99 or roughly Php 19,153 converted.
