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'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 Hero5 Black review

 

An awesomely powerful piece of kit, but not without its flaws

Voice-activated camera controls ; Improved video and image quality ; Easy-to-use range of editing apps ; Waterproof to 10m/33ft without a case ; Refined design

Doesn't feel as sturdy as previous gen ; Touchscreen fiddly to use in the wet ; Editing on desktop still clunky

Buttery-smooth 4K video comes as standard with the Hero5 Black, while a touchscreen interface and voice activation makes it the most user-friendly GoPro to date. However, it doesn't feel as robust without its plastic casing, and that touchscreen can be...

GoPro Hero5 Black review

 

With the Hero5 Black, GoPro is selling more than a camera. It's a solution for shooting, editing and sharing video nearly anywhere. Whether that's done at the beach, on a mountain or in your backyard is up to you.

The GoPro Hero5 Black is a true flagship camera with all the shooting options from its predecessor plus raw and wide dynamic range photo capture and linear field of view video, a touchscreen, a waterproof body, GPS, electronic image stabilization,...

Battery life, especially with GPS, Wi-Fi and EIS on, is predictably short and the camera is not compatible with older batteries. Auto upload feature only works with GoPro's $5/month Plus service. Linear field of view and electronic image stabilization...

Combining everything great about the Hero4 cameras and then some, the GoPro Hero5 Black is a no-compromise capture device for the ordinary and extraordinary.

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 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...
