GoPro is calling the new Hero 5 Black “Simply the best GoPro, ever.” They’re not wrong. Waterproof to 33ft out of the box and featuring 4K video, stabilization, voice commands, and more, the Hero 5 Black is a lot of action camera for $400.

His career was illustrious. Along the way he became one of the sport’s best players and a successful businessman, philanthropist, trailblazing advertising spokesman, talented golf course designer and experienced aviator.

On a much, much more somber note. The raw potential of Marlin’s ace Jose Fernandez was snuffed in the bud when he died early Sunday morning in a boating accident at just 24 years old… Florida’s Cuban community mourns with heavy, heavy hearts.
