Still a good performer
10 August 2017
It's GoPro. There are plenty of other reviews out there on which one to get and why AND on the similar or better alternatives. But there is a lot to say about being one of the de facto standards in any market, not least the 3rd party kit options. This is where the GoPro has a lead over its rivals. The 3rd party options for the others will catch up, no doubt, but for now when you think action camera GoPro is still the answer.
But what about the Hero5? well the 4 is cheaper, everything still works, firmware update/downloads are still pushed out by GoPro at the moment even though it's missing from the line up on their website. All the apps and software still work (if you use them) and it's just as good as the Hero5, so is the price hike worth the minimal incremental features the 5 gives you?
