3 sections Storage IKEA Review
ELVARLI 3 sections Storage IKEA Review
You can always adapt or complete this open storage solution as needed. Maybe the combination we’ve suggested is perfect for you, or you can easily create your own.
Integrated dampers catch the running drawers and close them slowly, silently and softly.
Adjustable shelves and clothes rails make it easy for you to customise the space according to your needs.
All of this is of course waterproof as well. Though, it won’t work underwater. For that you’ll need to use the push-buttons on the top/side of the camera to change modes.
You can combine open and closed storage – shelves for your favourite things and drawers for the things you want to store away.
Speaking of which, let’s talk audio and video modes.
Video & Audio details
Ahh yes, video time. No better place to start diving into features than video modes. In many ways the Hero5 is similar in these modes to the Hero4 Black. After all, it too has 4K @ 30FPS and 720P @ 240FPS, the two ends of the spectrum that people often talk about. The footage looks beautiful in 4K – no doubt.
To enable image stabilization, you’ll simply swipe from the right. It’ll warn you about cutting about 10% of the field of view:
For cases where you’ve got some light chop in the roadway, or even for hand holding the unit, image stabilization can dramatically improve things. Though, that’s at the sacrifice of resolution. If your final output product’s 1080p, then it’s largely a no-brainer. Do note that it generally works better when you’re shooting something that has a large portion of the image facing one direction constantly. Versus on a helmet mount, it can get a bit wonky as you move the view around a bunch.
What’s even more interesting though is the ability to record the native audio files from each microphone separately. If you enable ProTune, you’ll see a new option to do this. Within that you have three levels:
Here’s some quick tests that I’ve done with just straight recording times:
1080p 30FPS (Wide): 2:07:41 (no WiFi/GPS), 1:50:52 (WiFi/GPS enabled)
2.7K 30FPS (Wide): 1:45:05 (with WiFi Enabled)
4K 30FPS (Wide): 1:31:10 (with WiFi enabled)
All of these were simply taken at room temperature; obviously aspects like environmental temperature will impact things considerably, as will other modes and increased frame rates. But those give you some basic bounds to work within.back to menu ↑
HERO5 BLACK VS HERO5 SESSION:
So you’re trying to choose between the Hero5 Black and the Hero5 Session. Both solid choices, and let me give you some food for thought on deciding between the two (the next section I talk about between the Hero5 Black vs the Garmin VIRB Ultra 30). Do note I’m specifically talking here about the $299USD Hero5 Session, and *NOT* the cheaper $199 Hero Session, which lacks a ton of features compared to the $299 Hero5 Session. The key visible difference being the lack of the numeral ‘5’ in the Hero Session name.
From a top-line standpoint, here’s what the Hero5 Black has that the Hero5 Session lacks:
- 12MP instead of 10MP pictures on Session
- GPS for location stamping
- Inability to swap out battery (it’s not removable)
- RAW photo option
- WDR (Wide Dynamic Range) photo option
- Higher slow-mo specs (240fps on Black vs 120fps on Session)
- A handful less frame-rate options
- Touch display on the back (no display at all)
- Three mics vs two mics on Hero5 Session
- Ability to record individual audio streams
- HDMI port for direct viewing/connection options
You’ll still get all this stuff on the Hero5 Session though:
- – Voice control
- – Electronic Image Stabilization
- – WiFi Uploads to GoPro Plus
- – 4K Video options
- – Karma Drone and Karma Grip Compatibility ($29 accessory required)
- – Waterproofing to 10m/33ft
- – USB-C
That’s the basic differences. Again, both cameras are very good, you won’t go wrong with either. For me, I prefer the Hero5 Black because I like to be able to see and frame up what I’m taking a photo/video of. Whereas the Hero5 Session it’s shoot and pray that you’ve got it lined up. Sure, you can use your phone for certain shots – but most of us won’t do that.back to menu ↑
