GoPro HERO5 Waterproof 4K Ultra HD Action Camera
Record your next adventure and then relive the thrill again and again with the GoPro HERO5. The camera’s versatile housing attaches directly to your helmet for first-person footage, or can be mounted on three-prong accessories (sold separately) to film smooth, professional-quality video.
Stunning 4K Ultra-HD Video
Capture the crisp outline of every leaf in a landscape, or every sphere of dog slobber during a game of fetch, thanks to stunning 4K ultra HD (UHD) video recording. With four times the resolution of 1080p full HD video, even the tiniest features stand out in the camera’s footage, turning seemingly mundane details into powerful reminders of how a race, snowboard run, or skydive felt.
Brave the Elements
Whether you’re riding the waves or cycling down muddy mountain trails, the HERO5 can withstand Mother Nature’s abuse. In addition to shielding the camera from dirt and shock, its sealed rubberized housing can be submerged up to 33 feet underwater—all without bulky external housing.
Total Control Right from the Screen … or With Your Voice
This camera’s touchscreen display makes it easy to adjust settings, frame shots, and make edits. Rather than fiddling with physical dials and buttons to navigate the camera’s menus, you can use smartphone-esque taps and swipes to quickly find the function you’re looking for. If you need to start or stop recording on the fly, simply bark out a command and the camera will obey thanks to hands-free voice controls.

If you hear the words action camera or sports camera, that might not mean much offhand, but if you hear GoPro, you know immediately what you’re about to see: exciting video, often captured from the point of view of someone skydiving, parasailing, surfing, or enjoying another extreme-sports excursion. And it all started because one man wanted a camera he could take surfing.
That man, GoPro founder Nick Woodman, started off with a 35mm camera, but he soon realized that digital was the way to go. GoPro’s first digital camera came out in 2006, and since then the itsy-bitsy cameras, which are easily mounted to helmets or bikes, have captured all sorts of events big and small. GoPro has even made it well above the Earth: Felix Baumgartner’s record-breaking 2012 skydive was recorded on several cameras, and in 2015 an astronaut from the International Space Station took one with him for a spacewalk.
