The HERO5’s rugged, rubberized, adventure-ready exterior is resistant to the elements and waterproof to 10m without a housing. Those with a penchant for diving can go deeper still with the separately available Super Suit housing. There is a large range of accessories to complement your camera. Like the Frame, which features the GoPro standard 2-prong accessory interface, is included along with a mounting buckle quick-release for The Frame and two adhesive mounts (one curved and one straight). Other accessories such as handlebar mounts, selfie sticks, and suction cups, for creative placement of the HERO5 Black are available separately.
The rear side of the camera is dominated by a 2″ touchscreen LCD for quickly navigating menus. Once your settings are locked in, the classic one-button interface can take over for quickly starting and stopping recording and changing settings on-the-fly. If your hands are occupied, simple voice commands can start and stop recording, take a photo, or burst of photos, and more.
