The latest edition in the GoPro Hero line is available today and it is a waterproof, voice-controlled thing of beauty. GoPro's HERO5 Black and HERO5 Session are part of an overall plan for end-to-end storytelling (capturing, editing, and sharing content) a swift and easy experience for aspiring videographers. 

The all-new HERO5 line can auto-upload photos and videos to their game-changing cloud-based service, GoPro Plus. You can use GoPro Plus to access, edit, and share any of your content (you just need a phone or computer). GoPro Plus is being offered as a free trial, starting October 2nd ($4.99 a month after that period), and it definitely seems like an indispensable time-saver.
