My GoPro Hero5 Camera, Second Edition offers a comprehensive introduction to using the most recently released GoPro Hero camera models. All of these cameras utilize the same basic operating system and menus, but each has slightly different features, functions and possible shooting resolutions for digital images and video. It also explains how to use the GoPro Apple Watch app or the user’s own voice in order to remotely control their camera, and includes a chapter about using one of the GoPro HERO5 cameras with GoPro’s Karma drone.

After offering an initial introduction to the cameras themselves, as well as their menus and buttons, this book offers an overview of the different camera housings and mounts available, plus explain how to utilize the GoPro mobile app and computer software. How to best use other “must have” GoPro accessories, including the Wi-Fi Remote and the LCD Touch BacPac display, for example, will also be covered.

Throughout the book will be hundreds of shooting tips and strategies that teach readers how to capture the best possible photos and videos in a wide range of situations. For example, this book will offer strategies for shooting professional-quality first and third-person photos/videos, as well as traditional photos/video, plus explain ways to achieve the best possible results indoors, outdoors, underwater, in low-light situations, and in high-action situations, for example.

This book will appeal to mainstream consumers who have purchased a GoPro camera to take on vacation or to capture “family moments,” as well as to more active people who want to capture crystal-clear “action” images or videos of themselves engaged in various activities, using their GoPro camera in conjunction with the best combination of optional camera accessories, housings and mounts, based on their activity and the shooting conditions.
