Description

Park Picks 2017 Winner: Best Action Camera

Like many of the cameras that we talk about throughout the year, the GoPro Hero5 was an iterative upgrade on an already popular little action camera.

This was announced alongside the Hero5 Session and the soon to be re-released GoPro Karma Drone - with which it is compatible, and from which came the exceptionally popular GoPro Karma Grip stabiliser for lovely steady video from your Hero5.

Improvements on the predecessor, and the things that help make it a Park Pick, are that it is waterproof up to 10m without extra casing, has rather delightful voice controls for image and video controls and an improvement in image capture to include RAW file output.

The Hero5 ensured that GoPro is still the go to brand for Action Cameras.

Our Verdict

GoPro are synonymous with action cameras, and the Hero5 Black has to make sure it is jam-packed full of features to head up the esteemed brand's range of action cams.

Described as their 'most rugged action camera yet', the GoPro Hero5 Black is capable of capturing your every adventurous move in splendid 4K at 30p, and still images at 12MP - stretching to RAW capture if you'd prefer. So whether you're jumping off a cliff somewhere or simply wanting to grab a high-quality time-lapse of your journey there; you're covered.

For those wanting to venture underwater with their GoPro, the Hero5 Black now comes with a 10m waterproof body, making it an out-of-the-box solution for snorkelers at least - those venturing lower can purchase a range of cases to protect their action camera further down.

Voice control is another new feature present in both this and the GoPro Hero5 Session. This is perfect if your camera is mounted in an awkward position a bit further away from where it is easy to co-ordinate controls. Although the simple one-touch shutter button which operates both power and capture modes shouldn't make operation too difficult (say if you lose your voice...).

We Love
  • Waterproof capabilities now in-built up to 10m
  • Simple to control whether by physical one-touch button, rear touchscreen or voice
  • Compatible with the full range of GoPro mounts built up over the past few years
