Re: This thing sucks

The Big problem in My mind for this Camera is not the camera itself but the "Bleeping" file namin convention, It is completely UNUSABLE. Why they couldn't have just Used the datestarttime so that it would sort in a logical order. IE:

Perhaps

GPYYMMDDHHMM

GP201705121258

GP201705121317

 

I have had the camera since it first came out, it was the first Gopro that I owned, and it will be the last, I will go back to the One I had used previously, that has editing software that is usable, and in fact will work with these files. 

I should have known that the product was not ready at intro, when They didn't have mounts for my bike, and I saw the picture on their web page with the owner holding the camera in his mouth, and me thinking "Hmm I wounder if this is how he perceives one is suppose to use the camera."

Re: This thing sucks

FILE_0001 working quite well and   now I have t oguess as well each time I go over the chaptering, let along my Yi is worseoff as well timelapses photos and video are  never  where I likem but since you have an option before you load up video  why not Highlight the whole and name it     whatever  and then you'll have whatever_0001- your last video in order

This GoPro is the worst piece of garbage I have ever spent money on. To anyone looking to buy a camera avoid it at all costs!

Re: This thing sucks

Honestly
Go pro hero 5 has been nothing but problems. Sending my replacement back for the same issue. Not charging. I would expect them to send me a replacement camera that actually works. Now I have to go through the same process of sending it back for another replacement. This is very upsetting. I hope this time they send me a good camera that actually works!!!!!! :( not a happy customer at all. I will give a second time before I review this camera 👎🏻👎🏻👎🏻👎🏻

Re: This thing sucks

its free and basic can not ask for more,  sounds like a professional camera and cheap editor, imagine the other way around a cheap camera and  professional editir.. and you get unbelivable  results.

Re: This thing sucks

Been using Gp's since they came out and the 5 is buy far one of the best GP's out there. So many posiblities and with the LCD screen, mode changes are fast and easy.
Protune/Raw, timelapse etc etc. 
Voice controll is so good.
Pretty instant wifi connection to phone the few times I need it. use the lcd mostly.
Water proof.  

File names, not a problem. I dump the files into seprate dated folders each session. 

Editing done with dashware for gps overlay and Davinci Resovle 14

of course there are issues, LCD should be able to rurn off. Some people haveing probs with water. nothing is perfect, but Think of the possiblities in such a small thing..

Re: This thing sucks

I have both the Hero5 Black and Hero5 Session and they are equally amazing cameras. Selective spot metering is by far my favorite feature on the Hero5 Black while the shooting capability in the compact Hero5 Session is amazing. For stabilized shots (with the Karma Grip) and when I want to plan out a "perfect" shot, I use the Hero5 Black but for my "grab it and go" shooter it's the Hero5 Session every time.
