GoPro Hero 5 Session is designed as a cube that can easily fit in the palm of your hand

The Hero 5 Session is designed as a cube that can easily fit in the palm of your hand, so getting detailed footage on such a small device is a big deal. But GoPro founder and CEO Nicholas Woodman also claims that despite its diminutive design, the Hero 5 Session is one of the most durable cameras the company has ever made. “This thing is endearingly a cockroach,” he said in the launch video. “It’s incredibly difficult to kill a Session.”

The Hero 5 Black, on the other hand, is a more normal-sized digital camera. While its design isn’t as convenient as the Hero 5 Session, it takes still photos at a higher resolution. Still, both cameras share many of the same features, including GPS and voice control available in seven different languages. That means athletes can tell the camera to take action photos without ever touching it.

Watersport athletes should be especially excited because both cameras are waterproof up to 10 meters. That’s an upgrade over GoPro’s previous Hero cameras, which required a protective housing for underwater use. So whether you’re catching some waves or just taking your kids to the pool, GoPro’s new cameras have made it easier to capture those moments.

While camera drones feel like a natural step forward for GoPro, it’s difficult to determine how this will affect the company’s stock. After GoPro sales tanked during the holidays, many people hoped the Karma drone would expand the brand and give the company a boost.

The Karma drone puts GoPro in direct competition with Chinese company Dà-Jiāng Innovations (DJI), the world’s top civilian drone producer. Just a week after GoPro unveiled Karma, DJI announced their new Mavic Pro drone, which caused GoPro’s stock to fall. On paper at least, it seems like the Mavic Pro outclasses Karma in a number of different categories.

Still, GoPro’s name recognition and the fast-growing market for drone technology could be enough to cause the company to rebound.
