The HERO5 Black Edition was GoPro’s flagship action cam and remains a solid choice. Key features include:
Improved image processor
Captures 30p in UHD4K and 120p in Full HD
Built-in electronic image stabilization
Independent manual control over shutter and ISO
The Hero5 battery life varies based on frame rate, resolution, and other factors like use of wifi and operating temperatures, but generally you can expect approximately an hour to an hour and a half of continuous use on a full charge. Charging the battery in the camera takes approximately 2 hours when using a USB wall charger and as long as 4 hours when using a computer’s powered USB port.
When shooting high resolutions or frame rates, you should expect to record just under 2.5 minutes per GB (approximately 180 minutes per 64GB card) while being able to record just over 3.5 minutes per GB (approximately 240 minutes per 64GB card) when shooting 24 or 30fps at 1080p.
This rental doesn’t include A/V cables.
We’ve received numerous complaints from customers attempting ambitious multi-camera shoots with GoPros. It’s our opinion that GoPro HERO cameras don’t fit well into this sort of work, so we won’t honor refund requests for trouble related to these setups. If your production is contingent on multiple GoPros all working reliably at the same time, use at your own risk. If you have any questions, please contact us. email@example.com | 901-754-9100
