The GoPro Hero5 is the second action camera from GoPro, after the Hero4 Silver, to feature a touch screen on the back. The Hero4 came in two variants, Silver and Black. The Silver had fewer cool video modes but included that user-friendly touchscreen. The Black had all the great video modes, like shooting at 4K at 30fps and 1080p at 120fps.
