    "GoPro has had some growing pains as of late with all the outdoor activity style cameras. This GoPro Hero5 in black has a major step above though . The design is rugged and the price is great. I often find outdoor cams lacking in the audio department. The GoPro Hero5 black has no issues at all, great audio quality when recorded. Its the original HD camera for on the go people and it has reclaimed its spot at the top."

    "The GoPro Hero5 was recommend to me by a friend. While I'm sure the camera is a great, it is pretty far out of my budget of $100 to $200. There are other brands with similar stats that are a good bit cheaper, so I will have to pass on this overpriced camera. "

    "I strapped the GoPro HERO 5 onto my helmet and jumped. Quickly I spread out my arms and legs so my wing suit would catch the most drag possible. I was flying, the mountain directly to my side. The wind was loud like constant thunder in my ears as I headed closer to the ground. It was exhilarating. The scariest, craziest, most fun thing you could possibly do. The GoPro5 captured all of this perfectly. When I watched back the video it was as if I was experiencing it all over again. Now I could show my friends and family just what it is like to fly!"

    "As an athlete, I'm a GoPro lover, but sometimes I want to control my wearable from a distance. This GoPro model doesn't seem to give me that option, which is a disappointment. I love the quality video and the instant upload to my phone, but the link to the phone only shows it's even more possible to have a remote. This one just doesn't, for some reason."

    "This was a great little camera to use during my recent surfing expedition in Hawaii. I was able to fit it onto my head and capture, in 4k quality, the waves I was surfing. It was a bit pricey, but I think it was worth it, as I got to capture moments in first person that I will always have and cherish. I was practically able to capture my own memories in real time!"

I've used a GoPro in the future before, so I know it would work for me. However, mine didn't have an LCD screen, so I'm hoping this one has that as an added feature."

    "I used the GoPro HERO5 on vacation in Florida. I'd booked a snorkeling trip with my son on a huge catamaran type boat. They took us out into the gulf and rolled out a float.. My son and I used the the HERO5 with the hand held accessory sticks. We got pictures of starfish, sea urchins, crab, fish and other various aquatic life. we also took pictures of each other taking pictures, haha. While the trip wasnt super expensive, it was our only chance to get good underwater snorkeling pictures that year, so I wanted to be sure I got a reliable underwater camera and that the battery would last 3 hours (the duration of our trip). Ive also used super cheap underwater cameras in the past and everything came out blurry. Thats why I chose to upgrade to the HERO5. Neither one of us used the video function, so that will be for a future trip. Our snorkle pictures were crisp, clear and Im so glad I decided to use this!"

    "This camera is a good wearable tech you can buy, and it is waterproof up to 10m without a housing system. It has an excellent battery life, and superb video capturing quality with equally good audio. However, it does not come included with a housing, making it limited in its waterproof capabilities. Its nice that its design is already waterproof, but it is not recommended for certain aquatic sports or diving more than 10m deep."

    "GoPro can easily be anyone's hero, as it's HERO5 hits the market, move over all those high-end, high-priced cameras. The HERO5 functionality, and features prove quite a competitor to all of it's rivals. The fact that it's also water-proof is a mere ripple-in-the-water in comparison to state-of-the-art features. "

    "This review is from my perspective as a freelance videographer and first-time action camera owner. I will keep the review short by going over the good, the bad, and the ugly of the GoPro Hero 5 Black. The good (+3) - Highly portable. I can quickly charge it and stick it in my pocket for on-the-go shooting. - Waterproof. Drop this in water and you'll be fine. Swish it around, and still fine. Go diving, yep, still fine (up to 33' without housing). - Android connectivity. It works fantastically! With the Capture app, I can pay attention to the shot on my 5" phone screen while guiding my arm. - Stabilization. Unbelievably good. If I'm doing a panning shot or walking down stairs, I don't have to worry about arm jiggle. It's smooth on a bike. - Audio. Multi-directional recording on this tiny camera is very good. Listen to the raw audio in the attached video to see what I mean. - Sturdy construction. The smooth plastic, large touch screen, and heft give it a quality feel fitting to the price range. - Timelapses look great! I recorded a 2-hour once-per-2-seconds timelapse on a single battery and was able to immediately wirelessly transfer it to my phone and share i"

    "There are two versions of these, this is the better one because it goes underwater. And it also shoots in 4k. If you are not looking for something this pricey you can go the other route and get the one just below this one for about 289. But it wont shoot 4K, so if you are looking for the best picture or very high quality and rugged this is the one. "
