GoPro Remo Remote for Hero 5 Black and Session



Here is an un-boxing video of The GoPro Remo Remote for the GoPro Hero 5 black and the GoPro Hero 5 session.

This is the latest remote offered by GoPro for your Hero 5 cameras. The Remo Remote is only compatible with generation 5 cameras and not the Hero 4. This new Remo remote is waterproof up to 5 meters (16ft) and has a range of approximately 10 meters (33ft). However in my testing of this remote I found that I could get a range quite a bit further at times if there were no obstructions between the remote and the camera. This main purpose of this remote is to enhance the voice command user experience if your camera is to far for voice commands. You can simply speak your voice commands to the remote. GoPro also states it helps the GoPro hear voice commands in windy or noisy situations. The Remo also has a one touch recording button that is large and easy to operate even if wearing think ski gloves. The Remo Remote is compatible with 10 languages.

In the box you will find the Remo Remote Body. A Wrist housing with strap as well as a clip housing. There is also a USB-C cable to charge your Remo Remote.

I have been using the Remo Remote for several months now and it really is a great remote. It works as it is advertised and does help the GoPro hear your voice commands when out of range or in noisy environments. The battery life is great and I love its small form factor and its simple design. A few downfalls that I must say really disappoints me is the fact that it can only be paired to one GoPro at a time. If you pair it to a second GoPro the first gets erased and you will need to go through the re-pairing steps again. The wrist strap I also find to be a little small. It will fit around your wrist with not problems, but if wearing a bulky winter jacket it simple is not long enough to go around.

Although a little pricey I do recommend this remote, a great addition to every GoPro camera bag.

Best Memory Card for the new GoPro Hero 2018

There are many types and sizes of memory cards on the market that will work with the new GoPro Hero 2018 but to keep things simple I recommend the Lexar 633x it is a great memory card at a decent price and I have always had good luck with them.  You can choose how much storage you would like the most common is 32 GB or 64 GB. This determines how many photos and videos can be stored on the camera.

Must Have $10 Upgrade For Your GoPro



If you own a GoPro this is a very inexpensive must have upgrade that everyone needs. One annoyance that I have had with my GoPro is having to remove it from the frame every time I want to charge it or plug in a microphone. With this 3rd party GoPro frame you can open and remove the charging door on your GoPro without having to remove it from the frame, saving a lot of time and aggravation. This frame also seems to be a better build quality than the stock frames, it has a nice rubberized coating. This is such a simple little fix, I wonder why GoPro has not implemented it yet on their official frames. Because they all have the same form factor this 3rd party frame is compatible with the Hero 5 Black, Hero 6 Black and the new GoPro Hero (2018).

GoPro Upgraded Frame:


This 3rd Party frame allows easy access to the GoPro charging door.


You can see the difference in the cutout. Stock GoPro frame on the right and 3rd party frame on the left.


Charging door can easily be opened and removed without having to remove the camera from the frame.


Allows you to easily charge your GoPro or plug in a microphone.
