GoPro Masterthread
« on: June 12, 2017, 06:11:48 PM »
I'm considering the Hero5 Black which is at a pretty good price these days. I would like to hear input from anyone who owns this product about their experience, pros & cons etc.

Specifically I would like to start by asking regarding its performance in low-light conditions. I heard that it gets very grainy when it's not in the light. Is this true?

Thanks

Just like any camera in its class. If anything, the Hero5 is better.

I've yet to meet anyone who regretted buying a GoPro, a DJI drone, or a Sony mirrorless camera :)
Save your time, I don't answer PM. Post it in the forum and a dedicated DDF'er will get back to you as soon as possible.

Care to elaborate? What classification/comparison do I give this? And is it untrue about the grain in low-light? (Cause amazon reviews do suggest such problem.)

What does the extra lens that you can buy for $100 add to the picture? I am looking to capture best scenic footage in photo and video form (alongside a nikon z5 mirrorless camera) on an alaska summer trip, will this lens add to my gopro footage? Just not clear from the description on amazon. Is there a knock-off or other accessory recommended?
