Why We Like It

I am consistently amazed by the quality and clarity of photos and videos that GoPro's capture. The GoPro Hero5 Black takes all the best features of any GoPro and packs it into one ultralight, case-less design. The built-in WiFi and Bluetooth® allow you to easily transfer images to all your devices, plus with the new QuikStories you can transform your footage into a custom video with almost no effort! This versatility, ease-of-use, and compact-design make the GoPro Hero5 Black the ultimate travel camera so long as you're okay with its limitations–primarily no zoom.

Tip: if you're new to GoPro make sure you get in close for your shot. If you're standing back from your subject, it's just going to end up a speck in the frame. So get in close and make the most of the immersive perspective that wide-angle provides.
