Last week I purchased a new GoPro Hero5 Black to replace our GoPro Hero4 Silver. Within the first week of having this camera I took it snowshoeing (in June!) at Mount Rainier National Park to record some test footage.
The camera is much easier to use than the Hero4 and the picture quality is a lot better. Because the Hero5 is waterproof without a case, the audio quality was much better because the microphones are exposed.
This makes the GoPro Hero5 Black a great contender for vlogging cameras. Just look at Sawyer Hartman’s Australia footage with the Hero5 Black. It’s amazing.
You can watch my full unboxing video below. I can’t wait to use it in 4k on my next adventure!
