Claimed to be its best product so far, GoPro earlier today has launched its latest action camera in the form of Hero5 Black. At the same time, the company has also unveiled a small version of the camera called Hero5 Session and they shared quite a number of features together despite the noticeable differences in size.
Alongside their advance video stabilization, both cameras support voice control in 7 languages and are designed to be waterproof up to the depth of 10m without the need to additional housing. Additionally, both cameras are able to capture videos at resolution of up to 4K in 30 frames per second.
That being said, Hero5 Black captures still images at 12-megapixels as opposed to Hero5 Session maximum resolution for still images is slightly lower at 10-megapixels.

Not to forget, Hero5 Black is also equipped with a larger 1220mAh battery as compared to Hero5 Session’s 1000mAh battery.
Nevertheless, both Hero5 Black and Hero5 Session have the capability to auto-upload photos and videos to the company’s equally new subscription-based cloud service called GoPro Plus when they being charged. The cloud service also allows users to edit, and share their uploaded footages from any devices in addition to discounts for accessories at GoPro’s official website, premium support, and access to a library of soundtracks that they can used as background music for their videos.
