GoPro Hero 5 Black

 

Going on holiday is always the perfect time to test out an action camera such as the GoPro Hero 5 Black. So when I booked in two weeks in Vietnam, I figured it would be opportune to break out what I initially described as GoPro's "best camera to date"...

GoPro Hero5

 

GoPro's recently announced Hero5 camera marks quite a significant upgrade over the previous flagship model. I managed to battle past the crowds gathered around the GoPro stand at Photokina to take a closer look at the new action camera.

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 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. The GoPro Hero5...

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 Hero 5 Black review

 

It's been a long while since GoPro launched the Hero 4 Black, but has the Hero 5 been worth the wait? Well it certainly has. Read our GoPro Hero 5 Black review to find out why.

The Hero 5 Black is the best action camera we’ve tested and the fact it’s cheaper than the outgoing Hero 4 Black sweetens the deal even further. With GPS, water resistance and video stabilisation, the Hero 5 is a fantastic upgrade from a Hero 4 Black.

GoPro Hero 5 Black review: The best action camera in the business, now cheaper

 

Small improvements abound in the GoPro Hero 5 Black — it's the best action camera money can buy

It’s inevitable: with more features, better ease of use, and waterproofing, plus improved audio capture, the GoPro Hero 5 is the new king of action cameras.

GoPro Hero5 Black review

 

Rugged and waterproof without housing ; Great photo and video quality ; Responsive touchscreen ; Three stereo mics, with noise canceling ; Voice control

Battery life remains the same ; Requires some new accessories

Despite being dethroned by the Hero6 Black as the flagship, the GoPro Hero5 Black is still a very capable camera. It has become what GoPro would have called the Silver model, if Silver was still around. Importantly, it is simple to operate out of the...

GoPro Hero5 Black

 

The tiny Hero5 Black packs a touch screen, a waterproof design, and support for 4K and high-speed recording, making it GoPro's best action camera yet.

Waterproof without a case. Built-in touch screen. Tons of shooting modes. Excellent video quality.

Battery can drain quickly, especially with the touch screen running. No external mic support without an adapter.

Conclusions The GoPro Hero5 Black is an across-the-board improvement over the Hero4 Black. Its built-in touch screen and waterproofing make it easier to use than ever, its video and audio quality are both excellent, and at $400, it costs a full hundred...
