Buying Advice:

Stuffonix  recommended GoPro’s latest flagship sports camera product, HERO 5. To say the biggest change in the two HERO5 I think is the electronic anti-shake system and voice control. The newly added electronic image stabilization function makes the picture more stable. There is also a voice control function. You can easily take a self-portrait with a “GoPro photo” on the camera. The new GoPro HERO 5 frees your hands and allows you to work in any environment, any space. Take it easy to shoot.

For users who do not require 4K, high frame rate 1080p, Xiaobian recommends purchasing GoPro Hero 4 Silver. The reason is that the picture quality and performance are good enough.

GoPro Hero 4 Session is suitable for the second GoPro sports camera that already has GoPro Hero 4 Black and GoPro Hero 4 Silver users. The Session is smaller and lighter, making it more comfortable for outdoor sports.

As for entry-level products, stuffonix  believes that GoPro Hero+LCD is worth considering. It is affordable and offers basic functions for photographers who occasionally do diving, skiing and more.
