Go Pro Hero 5 Black -first time feedback

Hi all I've just had an amazing evening using my new Go Pro Hero 5 Black. Wish I spent time in the forums here first though with hindsight!

Q:do any official people frequent the forums here?I've got some great feedback (imho!) It's 1am here in London, so hope to write more tomorrow!
Thanks for reading

Re: Go Pro Hero 5 Black -first time feedback

@rameshoflondon - Welcome to the GoPro Support Hub. There are several employees (like me) who are on this community often. Plus, reps from the different teams check in occasionally. You can spot us by looking at our IDs under our names when we post. You'll see "GoPro" in the titles under our names.

 

Feel free to post any feedback you have. And if you have suggestions, please be sure to submit them using our Feedback form at https://gopro.com/feedback. That's a great way to get suggestions to the right teams within GoPro.

 

Thanks,

Jeff

Re: Go Pro Hero 5 Black -first time feedback

@jefft thanks for the warm welcome!
I stood in the rain in central London last night filming/photographing. The hero5 black is AWESOME
Sure there are some minor, minor gripes but I'd rather have it now and use it and get a firmware update later with more improvements. This does soo much!
I've been using my old mobiles and DSLR strapped /superclamped to my bike to shoot timelapses.
Do you know how tough that is? :-)
this makes everything super easy!
Please pass my congrats to the whole team! gotta go off to capture more!

Best regards,
Ramesh

Hi there,

Sure - I've been doing timelapses using stills but plan to take some videos tomorrow so will post tomorrow evening.

Is there anything in particular you would like me to film and what mode /resolution/FPS do you want me to film in ?

I'm in the city of London so happy to find what ever you would like filmed !

 

Best Regards,

Ramesh

Hi Ramesh!

 

Are you from India? I stay in Bangalore and I am huge Action Camera nut! :)

 

I love doing timlapses so would love checking out anything you shoot. I'm buying the Hero 5 in the next 5 mins. 
Here is what I did with the Hero 4 and Yi Action Camera - 1

Look forward to getting the hero 5 and taking the quality of videos a notch or two above! 

 

Regards,

Sumeru
