A much better option would be to buy a GoPro Hero and a drone bundled, manufactured by the same company. While there are some drones for sale with built-in cameras from popular drone manufactures, the reality is that many professional drone pilots would rather purchase a drone compatible with GoPro cameras. This model removes a number of features (like HDMI), and also makes the case non-removable.
Reports are coming out that the camera manufacturer is eyeing an entry to the drone manufacturing industry since the GoPro cameras were used by some in conjunction with Quadcopter machines previously.
The good thing about a cheaper model from my perspective is that it hurts a little less when it gets destroyed. This delay is supposedly due to the improvements that are being made to develop the “most powerful videographic equipment” in the world! The configuration of the A10 processor usually provides best-in-class 3D Gaming performance but GoPro is taking video recording to the next level with its 4k resolution videos at 60 frames per second and 8k at a lower frame rate. Initial speculations suggested that the GoPro Hero 5 may actually be able to capture videos of resolution as high as 8k, all thanks to its A10 processor.
As far as specs and performance, this is basically the same as the HERO3 White, which means that hopefully the price is well below $200 (that's what the current White retails for).
As it is evident that 8k is twice the resolution of 4k with pixel density of 4320p, it is being termed as Full Ultra HD. The action camera is rumored to still have the same box design with a new battery door at the back with additional yet-unknown buttons and LED indicators on the front.
Live streaming features are currently enabled on the GoPro Hero 4 along with direct uploading, and with the amplified Bluetooth interface, sharing experience is better than ever. Additional specifications of the device were also revealed, including a longer battery life thanks to a 2800 mAh battery. It’s also new territory for GoPro, as present drone users are mostly using cameras manufactured by other companies, many of which already come with built-in cameras. The camera also possesses the ability to capture 3D, which will dramatically improve user experience especially while filming in extreme adrenaline filled moments. So hopes are high that the fifth incarnation will provide a new level of standard and experience to withstand any incoming new competitors. But surprisingly the price of the GoPro Hero 5 is rumored to be lower than its predecessor, which is a first for a device with such technological advanced and decade-defining features! This will certainly have lower performance than the HERO4 Silver and Black based on the video comparison above, so its usefulness will be more limited to situations where you're in decent light and you don't really need slow motion — or you're fine with 720p slow motion.
With the HD cam GoPro Hero 4 being released only about six months ago, people are already waiting for its successor. With the rising popularity of these devices, there will probably be more viral videos like this that crop up soon. GoPro doesn’t tend to make massive upgrades to these units, rather focusing on adding more features and performance upgrades.
The company, however, balances their product lineup by decreasing the price of the previous model. While the company is due on making any statements or announcements confirming or denying the rumors on pricing, prospective buyers are having second thoughts whether they should go for the GoPro Hero 4 or wait for the technologically advanced and cheaper Hero 5.
The GoPro Hero 4 is currently rated at a price of $499, although loaded with more features and a couple of technological breakthroughs, the GoPro Hero 5 is rumored to be ranged anywhere from $400 to $500. However, technically speaking, it’s still unclear how the 3D recording and the 8k resolution will blend in along with the supposed faster processing speed of the camera.
Initially expected to release on October 5th this year, the release date has been postponed indefinitely but is expected to release somewhere along the lines of 2016.
In terms of pricing, the GoPro Hero 5 is estimated to sell for around $400-$500, but the drone and any additional accessories needed could bring the package to an estimated cost of $700-$1,000 — based on pricing for the 3DR Solo and DJI Phantom 3. It will also have a little more rounded corners and a design for additonal mic possibly for surround sound recording.
PetaPixel broke the news on the HERO4, and they also released information on this camera prior to the video above being released. GoPro may be announcing the HERO4 Silver and Black sometime in the next week or so, but apparently they've got another model up their sleeves, a sub-$200 version called the HERO, which is looking very similar to the lower-end HERO3 White. The camera manufacturer has been eying the drone market for quite a while now, according to a November report in the Wall Street Journal.
If GoPro would do that, then they could easily include it as an accessory while increasing the overall package price. Designed by AMD, this chipset is the insignia of the Trinity series and has a quad-core processor with clock speeds upwards of 4.2GHz. But those drones tend to be more expensive and you still need to buy the GoPro separately, or in some rare cases as an additional accessory. It's 100+ pages on what you need to know to make beautiful, inexpensive movies using a DSLR. The 2800 mAh battery is a 150% increase in its predecessor's capacity, and if all the other features are true then a powerful battery is needed for support.
The GoPro Hero 5 could be released by Q4 2015 and is estimated to go for about US$400 - $500.
I'd rather GoPro introduce a higher higher quality camera than what they plan to do with the Hero4.
Considered a commercial success, other manufacturers (like Xiaomi and Polaroid) are entering this side of the market.
If the GoPro Hero 5 release date this coming October as well revolutionary killer features such an 8K Resolution, 60mm under water capacity are all not enough to excite people, then perhaps the camera having a Quadcopter option would.
With 4K resolution becoming a standard (even some high-end smartphones are vying for this), this will give the unit a good grap of the mid-range market. 4k is termed as Ultra HD with 2160p, which is twice the pixel density of the current mainstream standard. These upgrades are a way to stay ahead of the competitors in the market, but with these upgrades, an increase in price is inevitable.

The GoPro Hero 5 is rumored to feature dual lens, enabling it to capture 3D photos making it the first of its kind. With an improvement of 150% from its previous model, you can actually record 2 hours of video on a single charge. The 8k resolution will be a marked improvement from its previous version, which possessed 4k resolution and also from other upcoming devices gadgets in the market.
