New GoPro users need to see the simplicity and power packed into one camera, the host of features provides you with everything you need in any situation.

Hands Free + Single Button = Simplicity

Whether snowboarding down a hill or dancing at a wedding, we all need an added layer of simplicity to our lives.  If your hands are full you can rely on the single button design to easily take great pictures and record crisp video with ease.

Spend even less time fidgeting with buttons and settings with added voice control. Just tell the camera exactly what you need and the rest is handled with ease. Calling out “GoPro take a picture” will do just that. While others are trying to focus the camera, you get the shot you need instantly.


The GoPro brand has always had a focus on creating an ultra durable device, and this new design is no different. The HERO5 is made for the most extreme athletes and relaxing vacations alike. When you stop recording on land, take your new device out to open water, as the base HERO5 is completely waterproof, no extra casing required!
