GoPro HERO5 Black Overview

  • 1Description

Ruggedized and ready for adventure, the GoPro HERO5 Black action camera can be taken to the skies, over rough terrain, and even underwater without flinching, recording 4K videos and 12MP photos along the way. The sealed rubberized chassis allows the HERO5 Black to be taken to depths of 33' without the need for an external housing. So whether your escapades take you to the lands of concrete, sand, dirt, snow, or water, the HERO5 Black is prepared to record with a single button press. Once you have finished recording, use the touchscreen to playback and even edit your footage right on the camera.

It's hard to speak about the versatility of the HERO5 Black and not mention the mounting possibilities available through the included and separately available accessories. The Frame is included with the HERO5 Black and not only adds another layer of protection, it provides an interface to the world of 3-prong accessories. To get you started, a mounting buckle quick-release for The Frame and two adhesive mounts (one curved and one straight) with quick-releases are included. Other accessories such as handlebar mounts, selfie sticks, suction cups, and dive housings for creative placement of the HERO5 Black are available separately.

Not only is it more versatile than previous generation HEROs, it's also easier to use. A touchscreen graces the rear surface, displaying a revamped user interface, while the front screen combined with the top and side buttons offer a more traditional one-button control experience. If the camera is off, pressing the record button will power it on and immediately start recording. Hands-free control is also possible using the built-in Voice Control feature. Speaking simple voice commands can control various functions inside the camera, including start/stop video recording, photo burst, and more.

Quick Features
  • Photos: Up to 12MP, 30fps burst, time lapse mode, raw file option, Wide Dynamic Range mode
  • Videos: Up to 30fps in UHD 4K, up to 80fps in 1440p, up to 120fps in 1080p
  • Waterproof to 33'
  • Simple one-button control
  • Wi-Fi and Bluetooth connectivity
  • Advanced wind-noise reduction using 3 microphones
  • Voice control
  • Digital video stabilization
  • Rear touchscreen display
  • Automatic upload to the cloud
  • Built-in GPS
Video Recording Modes
Select the desired resolution to fit your project. Record in UHD 4K resolution up to 30fps or switch to lower resolutions such as 1080p and 720p for access to higher frame rates, more FOV (Field Of View) options, and electronic stabilization. In 2.7K widescreen and lower resolutions, for instance, narrower FOV options open up, including Medium, Narrow, and the new Linear mode (only available in 2.7K and 1080p settings), which corrects the lens's barrel distortion.

All video recording modes can be as simple or advanced as you want them to be. If you only want to ensure that a shot is captured, auto-exposure is at your disposal. For those who are shooting less off-the-cuff footage and want complete control, manual control of exposure is also available.

Audio for video is recorded using three microphones. In normal conditions, the HERO5 Black will process the audio for a stereo signal. If high winds start affecting the audio, the HERO5 Black can intuit which microphone is picking up the best sound and automatically switch to that microphone in real-time and filter out any excess wind noise. While the audio will only be in mono, you will know that you're getting the highest possible audio quality.

Photo Modes
Raw File Option: In addition to standard JPEG capture, the HERO5 Black can also capture raw images in the .GPR format. Raw images offer enthusiasts or professional photographers more flexibility after the photo is taken. Raw images can be processed after-the-fact for higher quality output.

WDR Mode: Bridging the gap between JPEG capture and raw, the WDR (Wide Dynamic Range) mode is also available. If the scene has dark shadows and bright highlights, WDR mode will retain better detail in those areas.

Burst Mode: Bursts of photos can be taken during high-action sequences to ensure that you capture the moment. The camera's buffer can fit up to 30 photos from a single burst, and burst durations can be set from six seconds to one second, effectively offering a 30fps burst of 12MP photos.

Time Lapse Mode: Record clouds floating by, traffic snaking through cityscapes, or stars and constellations tracing their way across the sky with the time lapse mode. Set your interval from a picture every 1/2 second to every minute for different effects.

    GoPro HERO5 Black Reviews

    HERO5 Black is rated 4.2 out of 5 by 217.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Epic camera This camera is awesome. I was skeptical about it when I saw harsh and positive reviews. I sold my GoPro 3 Black and got this one and I am stoked! This camera is awesome, it shoots 4K and is already water resistant. I am a scuba diver and honestly I use it for diving, so the supersuit is ideal, I am about to buy it.. I have had no issues with this camera. It even has a mode to de-fisheye the fisheye lens. It is the same in low lighting to the 4, or perhaps better. No offense to those who have it 1 star, but I say 5 out of 5. This camera is impressive and i look forward to some heavily yet really passionate times with it. -Khalil K

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent little action camera Got the camera to use in my RC cars, bike rides and anywhere my phone or my DSLR didn't fit or in danger to break, get wet. I used the Hero4 and Hero3 and hated the interface with that little display, The Hero5 solve this problem with that nice LCD in the back, still very small but it's just right for the objective of the camera. At first wasn't very responsive and kinda annoying, but the last two firmware updates solved the problem. The the digital image stabilization work great but don't do magic. Is enough to smooth high frequency noise and keep a overall stable image but the corners get some jello effect. The image transfer from the camera to a smartphone still kinda slow and the app need some work. Overall I'm happy and recommend the camera for anyone who wants an action cam.

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Worked great, until I really needed it I used this camera exactly twice. First was on a ski-day in December after Christmas, and it did well on that trip. Then in March, while in the Caribbean, it worked until I jumped in the water with it. Just died. Removing the battery, charging, etc, nothing. And now, since it has a screen, there is no reset button, because you reset it using the menus. Of course that means the menus have to work. Wish I had brought my Hero2 with me instead. At least I would have great video of the school of dolphins that surrounded us. Total waste of $400. Lets hope they can repair it, so maybe next time I am on a vacation of a lifetime, it might work.

    Rated 2 out of 5 by from Unusable Audio due to Static Noise Yes, this camera is a great buy for its improved mage quality, higher resolution, nice colors, some image stabilization, plenty of recording options, etc. : All this is good! The big issue is the sound: A constant static noise ruins the audio and the hypersensitive microphones amplify all and every small sounds resulting from touching or holding the camera (even when attached to a handheld stick!) I wasn't expecting stellar audio with the Hero 5 but compare to the Hero 4 Silver, the audio is completely unusable. So unless you plan on putting music on all your vids, the Hero 5 is pretty useless without a separate audio pickup.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from If you're thinking about it, get it. I use my gopro primarily for timelapses, self-cam videos, and as a secondary camera to my DSLR. What I really enjoy about the hero 5 is its capability to shoot on smaller FOV's (medium, linear, and narrow) incase I don't want the wide look in videos. Another feature that I thought I wouldn't use often is VOICE COMMAND. I love how quickly it responds to me telling it to record and shut down. Makes it so easy to set up and just tell it what to do. If you're looking for a portable camera that has great video quality, this is definitely a good camera to snag.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Try before you buy I highly recommend anyone considering this product actually tries using one first. I was quite stunned how unintuitive it is to operate, from the interface right down to something as simple as reattaching the removable side door. The smartphone app you can download allows for viewing live video via Wifi, which is pretty cool, but once the camera is shut down, it will turn itself back on and run down the battery unless you first disable wifi on the camera. All of these things can be learned and overcome, but my out of the box experience has been a real disappointment.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Four stars because ... I have used this exclusively while scuba diving, with the waterproof case as the standard camera is only good down to 30 feet or so. Definitely want the red filters for diving, so that is worth the purchase. Otherwise all the colors look washed out. Didn't give the Hero5 Black 5 stars due to what I think is a design flaw. If you aren't really (!!!) careful when inserting the micro SD memory Card you can actually slide it between the slot and the frame of the camera. Which is obviously not a good thing. GoPro was fantastic when I called and sent a replacement without question. BUT, it was pretty obvious from the discussion with Customer Service that I am far from alone in making that mistake. Shouldn't be possible to do that easily...

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from First time buying / using a GoPro. Rep is well-earned! I'm a fairly active guy (run a lot, ride a motorcycle, snowboard, team sports, etc) but never thought to buy or use a GoPro. My girlfriend and I have a few trips lined up and decided to get one to bring to our trips. This thing is awesome! Super easy to use, small, and high quality. I ended up getting the smart remote so I can easily turn it on/off while riding a motorcycle (I put the remote on the provided wrist strap). Photos and videos are high quality and the video editing software is fairly intuitive. I can see why GoPro has a rep for having the best action cams!
