GoPro Hero5 Black review

 

The Hero5 Black is a proper successor to the Hero4, and it's worth the upgrade.

The Best Action Camera

 

We put in 20 more hours of testing (after hundreds spent over the past three years), and the GoPro Hero5 Black is the best action camera for most people.

GoPro Hero5 Black In-Depth Review

 

It's been two years since the last major GoPro Hero launch. No, I don't count the Session last year. I'm talking about a multi-camera launch like GoPro has typically done each fall for the majority of its history. Back in September GoPro launched three...

GoPro HERO5 Leaks Out

 

It looks like the GoPro HERO5 has leaked out ahead of the official announcement (usually in the Sept./Oct. timeframe). Based on a video that surfaced on Reddit and later on The Verge, the HERO5 appears to feature a touchscreen display and a new...

I have yet to try them, but the reviews are good.

GoPro Hero5 Black review

 

The best GoPro camera in years

Captures 4K video with stabilization ; Touchscreen for easy controls ; Water-resistant without housing

Controls still have a learning curve ; Mobile apps have limitations ; Discipline needed to edit like a pro

GoPro Hero5 is the 4K action camera that we wanted, with more straightforward menus on a two-inch touchscreen and out-of-the-box water resistance. It still takes commitment to edit and master its controls to be worth the price.

GoPro Hero5 Black review: A new breed of super Hero

 

A new GoPro flagship action camera has finally arrived, two years after its predecessor. The Hero5 Black - which was announced alongside the Hero5 Session and the long-awaited Karma drone - and brings a host of new features with it.

Fantastic image and video quality, waterproofing up to 10m without additional housing, great voice control functionality, video image stabilisation, stereo sound, built-in touchscreen

Connection to app still fiddly, mounting system not simple until you know how, battery life could always be better

The GoPro Hero5 Black is the GoPro we have all been waiting for. The company's previous offerings deliver great results, but the new device adds more than enough to warrant an upgrade - and not just because of the great image and video quality.

GoPro Hero5 Black review and sample videos. And we're also taking a look at the GoPro Karma Drone!

 

The ultimate action cam and an easy to fly drone with independently moving GoPro camera mount

Voice activated camera control ; Improved video and stills ; Brilliant optional drone

Fiddly rear touchscreen ; Caseless waterproofing suspect ; Package can get expensive

GoPro Hero 5 Black

 

The Hero 5 Black is the GoPro camera option for those who want the best action cam available right out of the box. You can almost think of the Hero 5 Black as GoPro's "Greatest Hits" compilation. It takes the best features from previous generation...
