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.

DJI's Mavic Pro Is Tiny, Foldable And Super Smart

DJI has owned the Western drone market for a while, and for a dang good reason. DJI makes fantastic drones with some of the most advanced features on the market. With a little practice anyone can fly one and pull off the kind of photos and videos you used to need a film crew and helicopter to get. A week ago GoPro, the action camera king, announced its own drone and stole a bit of DJI’s thunder.

How The GoPro Karma Compares To The DJI Phantom 4

GoPro’s new flying camera system, Karma, looks surprisingly awesome. It’s not your average quadcopter, thanks to a clever folding design and a removable stabilizer you can use on its own. But is it enough to dethrone the best-selling DJI Phantom 4? That totally depends on who’s flying it.

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