GoPro Hero5: The Gizmodo Review

We use a lot of GoPros here at Gizmodo. We use them to shoot timelapse battery tests for phones and 360 degree videos of multibillion dollar transit hubs and test runs of quarter million dollar cars on a dirt track. So a new GoPro action camera with a lower price tag and badass features has us pumped. We’d love for this to be the camera we choose to update our own fleet of GoPros — more on that in a second — but the Hero5 is definitely the one we’d recommend to a bike nut friend who wants to get into the action cam game.

Lunch Time Deals: GoPro Hero Session For $235

GoPro’s Hero4 Session is a great little action camera: it’s waterproof, captures high quality video, and it’s ridiculously simple to use. There’s literally one button to turn it on and start shooting. Sound good? OK. You can buy one for a ridiculously cheap price on eBay at the moment.

10 Tricks To Make Yourself A GoPro Master

The GoPro brand is synonymous with the action cameras. Whether you use it daily or occasionally, many of you probably have one model or another sitting around the house. Even though GoPro’s point-and-shoot simplicity makes it easy to use, there are plenty of extra tricks you can learn to take your filmmaking to the next level.

Nikon's Action Cameras Are Late To The Party, But Very Well Dressed

Thanks to the popularity of GoPro’s tiny, versatile action cameras, basically every manufacturer out there has waded into the rocky waters of adventure video shooters. Nikon’s just the latest, and while its offerings look a little familiar, they have got some weirdness about them as well.

GoPro's New Hero5 Cameras And Karma Drone Will Be Out Soon In Australia

If you get outside into the great outdoors, then you know GoPro. You probably also know about drones. You might even already have one. If you don’t, then get ready to knock out two birds with one stone; GoPro has a drone. And new Hero action cameras to fit that drone, too. It’ll be barely a month before you can get your hands on GoPro’s brand new Karma drone, and two new Hero5 action cameras will be out even sooner.

Leica Just Made The Most Expensive Rugged, Waterproof Camera Of All Time

Leica cameras have a reputation for their gorgeous optics and the kinds of prices only the Trump-set can afford. Their durability, however, has never been notable. If anything, Leica cameras are considered downright delicate compared to other cameras. The new Leica X-U might not change Leica’s reputation as a the purveyor of cameras for rich people, but you can drop it off the side of the boat and not lose all your pictures.

GoPro's Hero4 Session Just Finally Became A Solid Buy 

The Hero4 Session is GoPro’s smallest camera. It’s a little, unibody cube that’s waterproof on its own and is even more versatile in the ways it can be mounted thanks to its lightness, its shape, and its size. We liked it a lot when we tested it, but there was a problem: At $580 it was the same price as the Hero4 Silver, which had a higher-quality image sensor and was simply a much better camera.

Clever Earbud Microphones Bring 3D Audio Recording To Your GoPro

GoPros have fundamentally altered the way we think about video — we’ve never been closer to the action. The audio for the extreme footage we’re capturing, however, has yet to catch up to the action footage. Roland’s new Wearpro Mic is a step towards making the videos sound as intense as they look.

GoPro Awards Is Offering Up $US5 Million A Year For Your Videos

Back in July GoPro announced a way for you to get paid for the videos you shoot via a licensing portal, but now it’s upping the ante. With GoPro Awards, an ongoing contest pays you for the photos and videos you shoot. $US500 for a photo, $US1,000 for a raw video clip, and $US5,000 for a video edit. Not bad.

The Hero+ Is GoPro's New Entry-Level Camera, Now With Wi-Fi

GoPro’s got itself quite a stable of little cameras these days. We already had (from high end to low end) the Hero4 Black, Hero4 Silver, Hero4 Session, Hero+LCD, and the straight up Hero. Now, squeezing in between those bottom two, comes the Hero+. It’s a $299.95 version of the Hero, but it has Wi-Fi and has significantly upgraded shooting modes.
