    Any thoughts on GPH 5? What are your pros and cons about it? How is the battery life? I have been thinking about getting one for photography and for 4K video.

    DON'T! It has one thing the Hero 4 Black doesn't: a touch screen. No improvement on video quality and the stabilization they are bragging about is digital AND not available in 4K. I had one, returned it and went with the Sony X3000. It blows the Hero 5 out of the water. 4K at 100mbps vs Go Pro's 60mbps and more importantly, balanced optical steady shot (stabilization)...I'm not saying it's gimbal quality but it's pretty darn good and already built in to the camera. Our other YouTube channel has a few sample videos shot with the X3000, including some car and bike mounted shots and some underwater... https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCDtLl-ZTHz2dUsYna2Vw14A
