    I have had this Go Pro 5 since October of last year and I really Like it. I haven’t really tested all the photo settings yet and I hope to play with it when I travel. I really like using it for my Youtube channel. but I was disappointed when I opened it I had to spend part of my day charging the battery. I expected it to have least 5% battery when turning it on for the first time. once I started using it I was happy. that’s something to keep in mind if buying one used maybe the battery won’t be charged.

    Literally arrived like a brand new unit and works just as you would expect. I have to admit this did feel like bit of a gamble based on some of the reviews but I am so glad I took the gamble as I feel like I got an real bargain! I’d definitely buy one of these again.

    Been wanting an actual gopro for years, finally bought this one. For a 5th generation with the 10s out now. It still rocks the video. Has all the features I wanted, with none of the ones I didn’t. Might buy another for a backup. Or for different angle. Don’t see what the bad reviews were saying. This thing is fantastic. Especially being renewed.

    I recently received my “Renewed” GoPro Hero 5 Black & am pretty impressed! It looked pretty much new. Not a scratch or any blemishes on it. It came with all of same accessories as any other GoPro.

    I’ve tested it & the video performance is awesome! The pictures are ok but it really shines with video. Everything is really responsive and seems to be well built.

    The battery life is blah. I don’t know what normal battery life is like with these things but I’m getting a little over an hour use per battery recording at 4K. That’s not great but still doesn’t suck either. I picked up various accessories including three extra batteries with a multi battery charger.

    Overall I’m pretty pleased with it. I didn’t pay an arm and a leg for it and the quality is really awesome after changing all of the settings. I found a professional videographer on YouTube who showed how to set it up like a pro & *BAM* it was ready to go!

    I would definitely recommend buying one of these “renewed” GoPro cameras. Just be certain to get it from Amazon and NOT from a third party. This way you know you’re getting a quality product.

    Everyone who does “extreme” photography knows GoPro as the standard by which all other extreme cameras are judged. I got a new one 2 years ago as a birthday gift and have used it mostly on kayaking sessions in the Mediterranean and on off road jeep trips. It always worked very well, apart from the disappointing battery life on continuous video at 4K.
    About a month ago I took it on another kayak trip during which the camera was on a vaccum mount. It got some splashes, less than normal as the sea was very calm. After about 30 minutes we took a break in a sheltered cove and when I tried to stop the recording everything went wrong. The screen went black and was unresponsive to any touch and the small front screen had condensation.
    Customer service wouldn’t replace the camera as it was past it’s warranty-only good for 1 year. Very disappointing as I expected this product to be totally dependable in these very unchallenging conditions and as it was never dropped or misused. Lesson learned

    This thing literally fell apart when I tried to charge it up, so it is no longer waterproof as the cover for the charging port will not fix back on. To add insult to injury, I am being asked to pay the costs of return even though the item is clearly defective. No idea about the features as I didn’t charge it up due to the parts falling off. So disappointed in everything to do with this purchase.

    I didn’t need the latest model and bought this used on eBay in 2020. The newest model is up to 11 I think. I had to get new batteries. The user interface is confusing compared to normal digital cameras and camcorders, so allow time to figure out the menus. I still can’t remember which does what, so download instructions on your phone or tablet and carry with you. I had to buy a kit of all the holders for the camera, and bought the expensive suction cup holder from GoPro. WARNING – If you use a suction cup holder of any brand, also search for and find safety cords because too many commenters for the suction cup units LOST their cameras when used on a car fender, etc. Thus always make sure you have a safety cord tied to something. The visual image provided by the wide angle videos are quite good and they minimize jiggle the you are riding on a bike, etc. The worst problem is the convoluted double screens, multiple buttons and sliding actions that you have to learn. So allow time for that or you will get frustrated. For instance, right now, I found I did not know how to make an image ZOOM in. I tried “squeeze” moves like on my phone, but they dont’ work, so I will have to research how to do that. They also use a crappy proprietary bracket system that is confusing and you have to have a degree in mechanical engineering to figure how to use some mounts. DON’T ever lose or mismatch screws from one bracket with others. Some are longer or shaped differently and it is not always apparent. But the video quality is worth it for situations where you need an action cam when a normal camcorder won’t do as well. I also find that trying to transfer videos by cable is REALLY SLOW, so I have to take more time to remove the tiny USB chip and insert it into a reader and read the files that way.

    I love the features of this camera. It has all the different option when viewing the footage on the computer program. The picture quality is also very good with this camera. I use it with my motorcycle and at my baseball games to shoot footage. I’ve also used it for other various things like zip lines and stuff. I use the larger memory cards in it and have yet to run out of space before I transfer any of the footage to the computer.
