Will earlier accessories (dive housing, etc) work with the Hero 5 ?

@marct033 - Mounts and other attachments that connect to the camera should work, but housings will not. The HERO5 Black is a different size than previous cameras. Also, the battery for the HERO5 Black is different than our previous cameras.

 

Thanks,

Jeff

Are Hero 4 and Hero 5 batteries the same physical size? I need to know if I can use the plastic battery cases designed for the Hero 4 batteries to transport my Hero 5 batteries in carry on luggage. Thanks.

@vindobona - Sorry, but the HERO4 and HERO5 batteries are different shapes and sizes. Depending on how exact the cases you have are, the HERO5 batteries may fit, but it'll be something you'll have to test to be sure.
