    GoPro Hero 5 Black

    I just got a go pro for Christmas.

    Itís so easy to use, downloads clips straight to my phone or iPad for easy editing.

    Next will be to start getting more mounts to get a bit more creative.

    I have just been using iMovie for editing and after a quick play Iím finding it easy to use for basic editing so with a bit more practice Iím sxckted to see how it all comes together.

    Cheers

    I bought a Hero 6 just before christmas and it seems amazing. The resolutions it, and the 5, offer is amazing, and the image stabilization is a cracker. Now I just have to figure out something to film, I'm not very adventurous. As for mounts, I have found the suction cup is excellent, according the magic of google it can withstand up to around 150kph hanging on the side of a car which is cool, the Cruiser doesn't really go that fast so I'm safe! I've heard Patrols can, so be careful if you're ever in a free fall . I also have a mount for my rifle which I think is just a handlebar mount which is also excellent! It's all so well designed. All I want now is the handheld gimbal!

    I got a HERO SESSION for Xmas. I am sure it will get fair bit of use. Car, pushbike it will even scew to the top of my face mask when i go snorkeling.

    I purchased a 36 piece attatchment kit off Ebay for $18.00 delivered.

    I run 2x Hero 5's and a Karma gimbal for my video work, fantastic bits of kit.

    I think I have a Hero 5 Black and I haven't really used it - really should figure out how it works. Will do so when I start getting back out there
    This is where my signature is supposed to go................... if people falsify my signature is that a crime?

    I have an older Go Pro 3 black edition has served me well though I'm sure the battery needs to be replaced doesn't seem to last very long but there are many options on ebay for larger battery packs

    The Wasabi batteries are a great aftermarket alternative and perform on par or slightly better than the OEM ones.

    Those are the ones I was looking at Sam they have a larger pack which requires a larger rear to the clear case
