4K Video & 12MP Photos: The HERO5 offers 4K video recording at 30 frames per second and can capture 12MP still photos.

Voice Control: This feature was introduced with the HERO5, allowing users to control the camera using voice commands, which is especially useful during activities where hands-free operation is essential.

2-inch Touch Display: The camera features a touch screen, simplifying the process of framing shots, changing settings, and playing back footage.

One-Button Control: With a single press of the shutter button, the camera powers on and starts recording automatically.

Advanced Video Stabilization: The HERO5 can capture stable footage, reducing shake and ensuring smoother videos, especially during high-action activities.

RAW & WDR Photo Modes: These modes offer more flexibility in post-production. RAW photos provide the most detail, while WDR (Wide Dynamic Range) captures added details in shadows and highlights.

GPS: The HERO5 has built-in GPS, allowing users to tag their locations, track their path, speed, elevation gain, and more.

Stereo Audio Recording: With three microphones, the HERO5 captures stereo sound and uses advanced noise reduction to filter out wind noise.

USB-C and Wi-Fi Connectivity: The camera supports faster data transfer with USB-C and allows for wireless connection to mobile devices using the GoPro app for easy sharing and editing.

The GoPro HERO5 was lauded for its combination of advanced features and ease of use, making it a versatile tool for capturing high-quality videos and photos in various environments and conditions.
