GoPro is known for never compromising on quality. Hence, when the company states that they are improving the quality of the parts further, we can be sure that the device will be top notch. GoPro needed a redesign and the change of materials and weight and size are a part of the process.
GoPro came under serious heat when renowned F1 driver Michael Schumacher had a ski accident and the doctors revealed that his camera mount had a major hand in the damage caused. Even though there were no legal proceedings involved, it got GoPro thinking and the Hero 5 is the result of that endeavor.
The company needs to be praised for making the effort and if the upcoming camera is all that the company wants us to believe, it will be a one-of-a-kind device in its own rights. If you’re looking for a reliable sports action camera, it would be wise to wait for the GoPro Hero 5, since it is worth the wait.
However, if you’re the impatient kind, feel free to opt for the present offerings from the company since they are top notch products too! The GoPro Hero 4 is priced at $499 and we will get back to you with the final pricing on the Hero 5 as soon as GoPro makes it official.
It is unlikely for the company to unveil pricing this week, even if they decide to reveal the official specifications of the camera. We will get back to you with the details from the event, if and when it occurs. Hence, please be patient and keep watching this space for more.
