GoPro Hero5 Black review: Forget the rest, this is the GoPro to get

 

All the goodness of the Hero4 Black and Silver mixed in with a whole new bag of tricks.

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 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 Karma Drone with Hero 5 Black 4K UHD Camera Review

 

GoPro has finally entered the UAV drone market and quite honestly the move into this new level from the company has long been expected by both consumers and tech watchers. After all, GoPro's earlier and more recent lines of 4K action cameras are some...

Smooth, sharp photo and video quality ; Comes with Karma Grip stick included ; Extremely easy to fly ; Great downloadable camera control app ; Excellent, tough controller design ; Some very good autonomous flight features ; Comes with hard case backpack

Needs more advanced in-flight features ; No obstacle avoidance ; We’d like a longer flight time ; No follow-me mode

On the whole, we like the GoPro Karma drone very much even though we think it gets some very stiff competition from DJI’s MAVIC Pro UAV in particular and to a lesser extent from the DJI Phantom 4, which is definitely the more capable of the two drones....

Consumer review (very.co.uk)

Functional

 

It is a replacement back door/screen. So protecting the original. With this attached you cannot use the touch screen. Not too much of a problem as I was using the app on my phone.

GoPro is an action camera which has got good wide angle view(fish eye). It's good with video. 2.7k on low frame rate. Image:- talking about an image. It's well good. The only thing is you need to get used to the settings and sometimes you need to use...
