10m water proofing from sealed rubberised chassis - No more housings for normal waterproofing

The GroPro HERO5 Black can now be used underwater without any need of a waterproof housing. The waterproofing now comes from the HERO5 Black's sealed rubberised chassis that protects the camera in up to 10m of water, and from any small knocks and falls. The GoPro HERO5 Black even has 2m water proofing if the front lens protector is removed or damaged. If you need more protection the new optional GoPro HERO5 Super Suit housing will protect your camera to depths of 60m and against gravel, dirt, knocks, and falls.

Image stabilisation for smooth videos

The GoPro HERO 5 Black now features image stabilisation technology. Image stabilisation is enabled by default and will smooth out any unwanted high-frequency movement for sleek and life-like looking videos.

4K recording up to 30 frames per second, 2.7K up to 60fps, and up to 240fps on lower resolutions

The GoPro HERO5 Black can record Ultra HD 4K videos at up to 30 frames per second, 2.7K up to 60fps, 1080p Full HD up to 120fps, and HD 960p/720p up to a super fast 240fp. The frame rates of 60fps and higher will enable you to slow down the action for insane slow-mo effects.

Voice commands

Keep your hands on the handlebars and start recording your favourite downhill with a simple "GoPro, start recording" voice command, or take selfies with your pole mounted, unreachable HERO5 Black with a simple "GoPro, take a picture" voice command. There are several other voice commands to explore, and native support for 7 languages (More to come) makes this feature very accessible.

The GoPro HERO5 Black features 3 strategically placed built-in microphones from which the camera will automatically choose the best audio to record to the video track. An additional microphone (optional) can also used for more professional and directional sound.

Medium, narrow, and linear FOV video recording modes

The HERO5 Black can record narrower field-of-view videos including Medium, Narrow, and the new Linear modes in resolutions of 2.7K widescreen and lower. Linear mode corrects the lens's barrel distortion but is only available in 2.7K and 1080p setting.

The HERO5 Black can capture 12MP RAW image files for more creative flexibility in advanced image editing software, and WDR photo mode captures a wider dynamic range for more detail in shadows and highlights.
