      Answer

      Yes, it is. If you have any trouble pairing the remote with your Hero5 Black, check the various Youtube videos on the subject or consult with GoPro support. It's very easy. You can control as many as 50 Go Pro cameras with this remote.

    If i was in the middle of nowhere, with no wifi signal, would this remote become useless? Can I use my DSLR remote (see attached) with a Hero4 Silver instead? If so, what kind of adaptor would I need?   (2 Answers)

      Answer

      The GoPro itself sends the wifi signal. You don't have to be near wifi. The smart remote will work anywhere within range of camera.

      Do you need the remote to take a picture with the GoPole?   (10 Answers)

      Or does the GoPro have a timer on it that you can set for 10 seconds and get ready for the picture.

        GoPro has a setting where you can take pictures while recording (every certain amount of seconds) that you could use. You can also grab a still from video that you are shooting.

          Answer

          The smart remote can control multiple go pro cameras and also has a 'tag' button which is the same as the settings button (the wrench logo button) which is used on the Hero 4 cameras. The Wifi remote can control the hero 4 as well, but get the smart remote for more advanced functionality.

            Sadly no. The remote will only control the GoPro camera functions, such as taking pictures, videos, etc. To upload to Facebook you will need either the free GoPro app or a 3rd party app to upload to Facebook.

            I asked apparently it doesn't do anything underwater, it's just waterproof but cannot function very well at all as a remote under the surface

            You do not half to have the remote. It allows you to place the camera on your head or body harness and still control it.
