A lot of people are looking forward to the release of GoPro Hero 5 and this is mainly because there are various reports suggesting that it will be a major improvement over its predecessors. As reported by Master Herald, the next device in the world-famous line of action cameras will release sometime in 2016.

Earlier rumors suggested that this device would release on October but later it was delayed and there is no specific date regarding its official release next year. Apparently, there is a lot of excitement involving it since the 4K resolution will be further upgraded to 8K resolution, as reported by Latino Post.

In terms of quality, the predecessors were quite brilliant with their 4K resolution. As a result, the 8K resolution should offer a great bump in quality. For example, you can generate high-quality shots both under and outside of water.

Furthermore, the photos and videos taken by this device will turn out to be crisper and smoother in nature. This upcoming device will also feature better waterproofing capability. With the new features, the GoPro Hero 5 will be able to perform better underwater, even up to a depth of 60 meters.

There will be a dive housing which features easier reach and accessibility. Furthermore, the upcoming models will be lighter more compact when compared to the earlier models of GoPro Hero. As a result, the device will be much easier to maneuver and use.

With the Hero 5 coming soon, there are a lot of things you need to watch out for, since this is going to be the best action-camera out there. With the many upgrades, this device will be priced higher than that of its predecessors.

The device will be priced around $550 but considering the GoPro‘s stock slump, it may end up being changed. Market Watch reports that the company went through a stock slump which affected their profit as well as sales expectations. Therefore, GoPro needs to decide whether they wish to make or break their own company.

Meanwhile, reports indicate that GoPro is preparing something very unique with their upcoming range of devices. This particular model is still quite some time away from a proper release and various reports indicate that it should come sometime in 2016.

People are really quite excited about it and a lot of them are curious about how this device will turn out to be. In the world of action cameras, GoPro Hero cameras have remained quite prominent and popular over a long period of time.

Although, there are many other manufacturers with their own features in action-cameras, a GoPro camera still remains a much coveted device and enjoys a pretty huge fan base. The concept of action cameras haven’t been here for a long time and a lot of companies is still wondering what people would really like to see in their devices.

At the same time, companies wish to understand what people don’t really want to see in their action-cameras. Meanwhile, GoPro has been facing a lot of competition in the market but this actually the main driving force for improvement and better innovation in their upcoming devices.

With the size, weight and dimensions reduced, the device will be much more favorable for a person involved in action-sports, where keeping the person’s frame small is a necessity.
