What `s your idea about Gopro Hero 5?

No doubt, Gopro Hero4 is still the most popular action camera in the world. However, Gopro Inc stock has fallen more than 50% from its all-time high of $96, due to the rising competition etc. Hero 4’s success has raised expectations from its successor. Will Hero 5 be able to crush the competition and put GoPro stock back on the investors’ radar?

GoPro 5 is rumored to arrive later this year and will sport a dual-lens setup with an added support for 3D imaging and have 2,800mAh battery. Hero 4 came with 1,160 battery, clearly, we need larger battery to capture videos and images for a longer amount of time. Of course, there are many great batteries for us, such as Smatree Gopro Batteries etc. The next-gen action camera rumors to offer waterproofing up to the depth of 60 meters, while the GoPro Hero 4 is able to resist down to 40 meters.

According to some experts on Web, GoPro 5 rumors point to a 4K video at 60 frames per second, Leo Sun of The Motley Fool says the Hero 5 will record 8K videos. 4K has become more valid and potentially mainstream, but there are few 8K TVs in the market right now.

If these rumors turn out to be true, Hero 5 will be a beast of an action camera. Of course, GoPro will face competition from HTC, Sony, Xiaomi, Polaroid etc. They are all offering cameras in the low-end market, but Gopro has become synonymous with action cameras, creating a premium brand image. So, if Gopro 5 is as good as it is expected to be, competitors will also failed to affect GoPro’s growth.
