Combining everything great about the Hero4 cameras and then some, the GoPro Hero5 Black is a no-compromise capture device for the ordinary and extraordinary.

An awesomely powerful piece of kit, but not without its flaws

from TechRadar

Buttery-smooth 4K video comes as standard with the Hero5 Black, while a touchscreen interface and voice activation makes it the most user-friendly GoPro to date. However, it doesn't feel as robust without its plastic casing, and that touchscreen can be awkward to use.

The GoPro Hero5 Black is a true flagship camera with all the shooting options from its predecessor plus raw and wide dynamic range photo capture and linear field of view video, a touchscreen, a waterproof body, GPS, electronic image stabilization, stereo audio, voice control, the option for auto cloud uploads, and the best photo and video quality in a GoPro.

An awesome action camera

from BikeRadar

The Hero 5 Black is an awesome little camera. Garmin has given GoPro some serious competition with the ViRB Ultra 30, but the Hero 5 Black excels in the fact that it’s waterproof without the need for a specific housing and with a stabilisation that feels more refined.

The go-to action camera

from International Business Times

The Hero 5 Black takes what the Hero 4 already did perfectly and adds a set of genuinely useful features which will be welcomed by most GoPro users. Where voice controls on a smartphone often feel like a gimmick, here they make perfect sense and work reliably.

It’s inevitable: with more features, better ease of use, and waterproofing, plus improved audio capture, the GoPro Hero 5 is the new king of action cameras. It’s also nice to see that, at a time when prices for consumer electronics are rising, that at £350 the Hero 5 is actually slightly cheaper than the Hero 4 Black was when it first launched. With the Hero 4 Black still going for a similar amount, it means recommending the Hero 5 Black a no-brainer. If you’re in the market for an action camera and you want the very best, pick the Hero 5. It’s the toughest, roughest, best-quality shooter in the business.

By taking the best component pieces from older cameras and adding new features, the GoPro Hero 5 Black is the best camera GoPro has ever produced. It’s incredibly easy to use and the new form factor and waterproofing are fantastic additions. The electronic image stabilisation has been something I’ve been longing for for some time now, so it’s great to finally see it included, and it works really well. The image quality is best-in-class and there’s plenty to love for those taking photos alongside video.

GoPro’s best action cam yet

from PC Advisor

The Hero 5 Black is the best action camera we’ve tested and the fact it’s cheaper than the outgoing Hero 4 Black sweetens the deal even further. With GPS, water resistance and video stabilisation, the Hero 5 is a fantastic upgrade from a Hero 4 Black.

The Hero5 Black continues GoPro's reputation for great quality in both photos and video. It now, finally, adds great usability with a clear touch-screen interface and pretty reliable voice control. The Garmin Virb Ultra 30 is an equally strong performer and a fine alternative. But GoPro also stands out for its slim, waterproof design and utterly thorough choice of add-ons.

Takes all that's great about its predecessors and crams it into the best package yet

It’s not quite perfect, but when the GoPro Hero 5 Black takes all the fancy features from its other models and crams it into a single device, it’s by far the most well-rounded action camera money can buy right now. It’s also a Brexit-beater, too. We’ve seen a lot of 2016 pieces of tech fall foul of price hikes thanks to Brexit, but GoPro hasn’t followed suit, with the Hero 5 Black costing £339 - £20 less than what last year’s model went for at launch.

GoPro's best action camera yet

from PC Magazine

The GoPro Hero5 Black is an across-the-board improvement over the Hero4 Black. Its built-in touch screen and waterproofing make it easier to use than ever, its video and audio quality are both excellent, and at $400, it costs a full hundred dollars less than the Hero4 Black did at launch.
