    "5 Star...Hero 5...durable and great for vacations...The camera is a good "action" cam, but the app definitely is not, takes way too long to load, can be buggy, and does not always allow you to perform the desired and needed tasks (tells me the camera is busy when I need to change a parameter) I use this camera remotely almost all the time, meaning it is not within reach during shoots, so many missed opportunities because of this."

    "T6 FTW...Good !...I'm looking forward to using on vacation....In addition to letting you control your camera remotely, the mobile apps also let you view the pictures on your camera on the bigger screens of your smartphone (I use my iPad - and its great to see a real time image for composition on that screen - believe me!) The app is pretty easy to use and so far I've found it to be stable and reliable, although more so on my iPad than on my Android phone."

    "wow !...5 stars...Nice camera for vacations...The only thing that I don't find to be at the same level of a dslr is taking pictures of action, as there's a slight delay in the electronic viewfinder and the auto focusing of the camera seems to take ever so slightly longer and harder to find the subject with fast unpredictable motion (e.g. children), so I have to anticipate the action and time the shot as to when I think the best moment might be."
