Considering a GoPro

Iím looking at GoProís, or a knockoff to capture some of the single track roads in Scotland while driving a car, and for twisty roads while riding a motorcycle. I have a diploma in media arts with a specialty in film and photography, 10 years in the film business as a camera operator and almost 45 years as a hobby level photographer using both film and digital cameras.
My budget wont allow the newest, sexiest GoPro ..so, maybe a Hero5? Hoping to pick your collective brains..

the Hero 5 is a good camera, although i can't help think your'd be better stretching to a 6 if you can as the stabilization will be better for your use

Hallo and welcome to the forum!

Would also suggest the GoPro 6, as said the stabilization is a huge step to the 5 and will allow smoother recording.

Ciao Rob

Hi bob,
Had my h7 since Xmas and used it on my bike a few times, totally blown away by the stabilisation. I have an explorer and fitted the camera onto the top, gives a good view. You can just see my front mudguard in the bottom right corner,you see it moving as you would expect but the camera is totally still, I also fixed the camera to one of my side boxes when I had the mrs with me, you can see her leg vibrating as the bike goes along but the camera is totally still again, even when used over rough tracks and cattle grids, it’s black magic, so I would definitely go for the black 7, I get about 50 mins of video at 4K 60fps which is the only down side.

The Hero 7 is your latest camera you should be researching that and making that decision for a number of reasons you are in an expensive hobby and can simply get one do you not own a DSLR?
