GoPro HERO5 Review
I havent been this excited about a GoPro in a while. I had a HERO3+ Black edition before, and it took some ok photos, but ive never really been much of a video guy so it was fairly wasted on me. The reason the HERO5 is so exciting is, it shoots in RAW and has a touchscreen on the back so you can see what the heck your doing. The picture quality is still somewhat lacking compared to a DSLR, but for what it is and how much it costs, you cant do much better.
So how well does this RAW feature work? Its really quite amazing! Heres a couple shots ive taken with it in the short time Ive had it
Horseshoe bend, one of the best places to have a mega wide angle like the GoPro
One of my students flying us out to the practice area. The sun was obnoxiously bright, and the HERO5 handled it on all automatic settings like a boss.
Some more of that awesome wide angle and image clarity
In low light its still lacking a bit. In fairness it was pretty dark in the hanger and being inside a dark airplane didn’t help. But I had to use some pretty serious Photoshop trickery to make this usable.
All in all its a great piece of kit to have around especially with its tiny size.action, awesome, camera, equipment, go pro, gopro, gpr, hero 5, hero5, intro, new, newest, Photography, raw, review
