    "5 Star...Hero 5...The camera captures nice video when it works....The only thing I didn't like was that I couldn't upload or save any videos that were shot in 4k if they were any longer than 8.5 minutes so I basically lost a lot of footage before I called GoPro customer service and they explained to me that I wasn't able to upload or save the footage in 4K due to a memory issue so I've been recording longer video's in 1080p and I've really been enjoying it."

    "Love It...5 Stars...They are crisp and clear....Buying a separate charger for the batteries might be a good idea as you have to charge the batteries IN THE CAMERA which means you can't use the camera at that time OR must remember to charge the batteries over night or when the camera is not being used."
