GoPro HERO5 Review

The best action camera ever made. Period.

GoPro is to action cams what the iPad is to tablets and Google Glass to ideas that never caught on. Not only did GoPro practically invent the sector, it has dominated it since day one. Since the GoPro Hero4+ launched a couple of years ago though, the company has faced falling sales and renewed competition, with the likes of the TomTom Bandit and Drift Stealth 2 bringing the fight to the action cam specialist.

The new Hero5 Black is GoPro’s comeback charge. It’s a camera that builds on the firm’s strong foundations with all the additional features users have been calling out for.

From integrated GPS to inbuilt video stabilization and the arrival of a 2-inch touch screen display, this rugged 4K action cam is all change. Is this enough to get you upgrading though? We put it to the test to find out.

How Fast? How Far? How High?
New Telemetry Feature in Quik for Desktop Unlocks Your HERO5 Black’s GPS

Unlock the data behind your GoPro content with telemetry gauges available today on the Quik for Desktop app. The new telemetry feature adds an immersive layer to your story by providing stats about the action as it unfolds on-screen, from how fast you were speeding down the line on your last mountain run or big wave, to how high you climbed or how many g’s you pulled in your best track turn.

GoPro telemetry taps into the GPS capabilities of the HERO5 Black by capturing data about your GPS path, speed, altitude, g-force, elevation gain and more. The results are overlaid as graphics on your videos, making your content more meaningful and providing benchmarks and milestones for your experiences.  The overlays are also customizable, allowing you to resize and move the gauges and turn on or off each data graphic.
