First Impressions on the New Hero Camera from Go Pro, the HD Hero 5 Black (Video)
Having used Go Pro cameras from the beginning of time, I wanted to test the new Go Pro HD Hero 5 for a couple of its latest, and most anticipated features…namely:
- Built in image stabiliser (digital)
- Voice Control
- Linear video mode (no distortion)
I simply used my existing car suction mount to attach it to the window of my car and go for a drive filming from both inside the car and from the car bonnet (to check the wind noise using the updated 3 microphone, stereo sound input).
Watch the video below to see my initial thoughts on how the camera operates, how well the voice control works, how stable the footage is and to see the image quality at both 2.7K and 4K when both output to 2.7K.
You can also see how well the new linear view mode works which eliminates any distortion. This is a huge reason why I bought this camera, but bear in mind, Linear View is only available up to 2.7K as filming in 4K would leave no room for correction.
