Though this is a review for the Hero 5 Black (GoPro’s new top-tier action camera) and the Hero 5 Session (mid-tier), what  is just described is the GoPro advantage that no other competing action camera has.

Rather than just catering to the extreme sports athletes and tech nerds who are savvy enough to edit a video, the company wants to make visual content creation accessible to everyone. This includes all the people who don’t have the time or technical know-how to create a video from the footage they record with their GoPro.

It’s an ambitious plan after several missteps last year — the company had too many GoPro models that confused consumers and got the price of the Hero 4 Session wrong — but it’s the only one that will give the company legs amidst all the cheaper action-camera copycats now available.


The goal also furthers the company’s mission as a content enabler to inspire people to live a happier and more fulfilled life through the visual memories they create. Mashable
