More details about the HERO5 Black

If you look at it the three models in comparison on, then of course the black version of the new GoPro stands out clearly. In addition to the device, there is also a kind of case in the scope of delivery, which is not closed - after all, the camera itself is already waterproof. However, this type of frame serves as a mount aid for attachment to a tripod, gimbal or other fixed point.

As of October 23, 2016, in addition to the new cameras, the GoPro Karma available; the long-awaited drone from the action camera manufacturer. After the first tests, it is already known as a serious competition for the DJI Phantom 4 traded.

In addition to the compact design and easy transport, this may be due to the fact that the control unit already has a screen (so no extra smartphone or tablet is required) and that the cardanic suspension ("gimbal") can be removed and used as a handheld ("steadycam") is. In addition, the stabilizer can also be mounted on the supplied backpack.
