Not much time has passed since GoPro Hero 4 was released, but the GoPro Hero fans are already thinking of what the upcoming GoPro Hero 5 will come with. GoPro Hero is one of the most used cameras for extreme sports and many other activities. This is because the camera comes well-protected and resists to shocks and water, but at the same time, it records videos at a very high resolution.
