GoPro have officially launched its newest addition to its action camera series: the new and impressive Hero5 Black and the cute little cube-shaped Hero5 Session. Bot action cams are waterproof, equipped with voce command and packed with tons of amazing features, without taking away all you change in the pocket.

It has been a very long time and fans of the action camera series have been patiently waiting for the comeback of GoPro cameras. And right now, they are officially here and the cams seem to be worth the wait.

GoPro Hero5 Black

The flagship product Hero5 Black combines all the wonderful features of the Hero4 Black and the Hero4 Silver, its descendants. To be more specific, this powerful action cam is equipped with 4K video capture at up to 30 fps just like the older models, with a sporting touch display similar to the Hero4 Silver, according to the GoPro press release.

This amazing machine also contains a lot of cool tricks in its body. It can shoot 2K at 60 fps and full HD at 120 fps. Another thing is its voice command feature that will allow users to operate the camera without being handheld, and by simply saying voice commands like "GoPro, start video" or by turning it on or off.

Furthermore, this cool device is now wrapped in a more efficient waterproof housing which requires and additional protection.

GoPro Hero5 Session

The newly improved Hero5 Session s apparently way better than the models released before it now rocking with 4K video recording and up to 30 fps and 1080p at up to 120 fps, including the waterproof feature and added up with the voice control feature. Similar to the Hero5 Black, this device is cloud-connected as well, offering the exact backup-while-charging app of the GoPro Plus, according to a review from Wired.

However, different from Hero5 Black, the Hero5 Session does not support a display and a GPS, which is very much comprehensible since it has a tiny size.

The series of GoPro Hero5 will be on sale next month. The Hero5 Black and Hero5 Session will hit the market on 2nd of October, starting at $399 and $299 respectively.
