GoPro Remo Remote for Hero 5 Black and Session

Published

on

Here is an unboxing 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 too 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 thick ski gloves. The Remo Remote is compatible with 10 languages.

In the box, you will find the Remo Remote Body. Wrist housing with a 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 no 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.

GoPro Vlogging Case | How To Connect A Microphone To The GoPro Hero 7 Black

Published

on

In this video review, we are taking a closer look at a new style of casie for the GoPro Hero 5/6/7 Black that is aimed at vloggers. This new style of case or as some would call it “housing” has a built-in cavity that can hold the GoPro microphone adapter. When connecting a microphone to the Hero 7 Black you must use GoPro’s microphone adapter which for the most part is a big brick. In the past when you set up a GoPro vlogging rig you would have this adapter hanging off the back and it would always be in the way. There are some DIY methods for managing all these cables and adaptors but they really just were not all that convenient.

A few months ago these new styles of GoPro vlogging cases with a built-in microphone adapter holder started popping up on Amazon and eBay. I ordered one in to take a look at it and I really was quite impressed and wondered why it took so long for someone to come up with this idea. The other necessary component when setting up a GoPro Vlogging rig is you need a way to attach your microphone, most commonly this is called a cold shoe. In the past, there have been many offerings of aluminum GoPro cases that had a built in cold shoe and for the most part, they have always worked well (except dangle mic adapter). The downside to these cases is they were quite heavy and added a lot of bulk to your rig. This new style of vlogging case is made of durable plastic and is significantly lighter. They also feature a raised cold shoe for connecting a microphone, this raised cold shoe helps keep the microphone out of the GoPro’s wide field of view.

You can watch our video review of this new style of GoPro Vlogging case that is compatible with the GoPro Hero 7 Black, Hero 6 Black and Hero 5 Black.

Here is a quick unboxing video of the new GoPro Hero 7 Black Dusk White Limited Edition that GoPro released on March 3. It is available for purchase on the GoPro website as well as select stores around the world. As of the posting of this article, it is not available on Amazon yet and I am not sure if it will be. This new Dusk White GoPro is not to be confused with the Hero 7 White which is GoPro’s budget entry level camera, this is a full-fledged Hero 7 Black just with a new limited edition look. There are no hardware changes all internal components, specs, and features are the same as the original Hero 7 Black.
