Being two of the most sought after action cameras on the market, both the GoPro Hero4 Black and GoPro Hero5 Black have some astonishing features that would make them any adrenaline junkies’ first choice when it comes to immortalizing priceless moments either in photo or video.

The GoPro Hero4 Black is a great all-rounder as it can snap amazing photos with its 12MP camera which has a resolution of 4000 x 3000. Its video content capabilities are also impressive as it has the ability to shoot at 4K with 30 frames per second with its wide-angle lens. Regarding battery life, it is powered by a 1150mAh and it storage can be up to 128GB via microSD.

Its newer version entitled the GoPro Hero5 Black comes with some minor but at the same time significant updates. We are here to put some of them on paper to let you know if the Hero4 Black is worth upgrading or not.

Waterproofing

The Hero5 Black does not require a case to make it resistant to water and this consist of the biggest update of them all. A lot of users take their cameras under water and having built-in water resistance does mean that the device doesn’t require a special case to make it resistant.

Steady shots with OIS

Another big improvement is that the GoPro Hero5 Black has optical image stabilization and as users love to strap it on motorcycle helmets, surfboards or even a drifting car, shaky footage is thus being avoided. The camera specs are not at all different but having OIS makes the whole difference in the world.

The camera can now also be activated by the press of a button or by voice command fact which makes it more practical.

The GoPro Hero5 Black is definitely a better camera and if you are pondering over which one to choose we strongly advise you to choose the 5th generation of GoPro Hero action cameras.
